Both of those cars would be great for serious racing. Major difference between them is the R has a one-way/rigid rear axle setup and the Pro has gear diffs front and back. The other thing is the R has 32mm rear tyres and a narrow rear end(as in dogbones and pillow balls) to accomadate them. I dont think they are legal to race in Aus just yet.

My money would be on the Pro, it has a lot off the good stuff and all the aluminium comes is blue.

BTW i thought you were an NTC3er?
Thanks for the info, yes i have NTC3 but i'm greedy and want both!

I'm actually getting both.

Even though I recently got my GT4R, I've had the older GT4 platform for nearly 2 years. Great car but time for something new.

Going to drive a friend's NTC3 first and see how I like before I shell out the Benjamins.

Does the GT4 accept pull start engines with side exhaust? I have a brand new CV-X .15 OS engine, but I can't exchange it at the hobby shop even though it's new. Thanks for your input.

only the rtr car accepts pull start engines. You may be able to buy the neccesary parts to convert a non pullstart car to pullstart.

I don't really know what parts are different other than the layshafts.

Denso you should be able to use it on the GT4W which is the older car. You did not specify the car you have.

Boom use the factory setup to get you started. the config really makes a big difference on the surface and style of track.

#450 = #45 to #50 roughly

GT-4 tends to wear tires positive. (outside wearing faster than inside)

Try running 2 degrees and check after each run, adjusting to wear as even as possible.

Lower A arms

Hi,

I have my GT-4w for 2 seasons now and what I find kind of annoying is the design of the lower A arms (front and rear).

Strengthwise, it probably the same with any other car so it is not that.

The problem is when I get one of those freakish bump against the outside border and snag on something, the left lower A arms gets destroyed. Most of the track I race run only clockwise so it is always the left side that takes a beating.

Now I been buying replacement lower arms (contains one left and one right) for this car and used up the left side only. There is lots of right side arms that sit in my box of spares that rarely see the light of day.

What I been looking at is a Mugen MTX-Prospec. It is a really nice car and have similar design as the GT-4w. However, one big point I like was the fact that they design the lower arms to be symmetric either side. When you buy replacement parts, you get one front, one rear and one upper front arms but you can use it either side.

I would like to know if anyone know a way I can modify the GT-4w to use arms like the Mugen or make the arms symmetric both side???

The other question is does anyone know if the Mugen fuel tank would fit on the GT-4 car series?

Thanks

Hiep

Default GT4R, W and Pro difference

1. is it really true that the ball pillows and dogbones on GT4R are shorter than GT4W and GT4Pro to accomodate the 32 mm tires? or is it just a matter of adjustment?

2. Anybody runs tires other than Yokomo brand? Especially on the rear (GT4R). Elegi's 31mm does not fit because it's 0 offset.

Correct. The rear has 190mm pivot balls and 190 dogbones.

Not sure about other brand tires but I'm going to see if Kawahara ZACS 32mm foams work.
