Hi Guys,

We got two new lines of Foam tires in stock. First is the Zac Project Multi-Ring foam tires, available in 26mm for the front and 26 and 32mm for the rear. Second is Mugen Fast Tire foam tires, which are very similar to Treadz compound. All available in 26mm width, and we have 3 compounds for the rear and one for the front. Best of all, they are very well priced. Available now on our website!

Thanks

Steve Wang

The GT4R has low profile engine mounts so you have to be careful what header you choose to run. What brand header are you using by the way?

hahaha...i have no idea..its from taiwan tho....ppl said that its the same size as novarossi...but im not sure!!

i notice that the flywheel is really close to the chassis too!! its not touching...but its really hard to start the engine with the starter box...i always rub the chassis...making the "nice and silver" chassis covered in black rubber!

i think i need new engine mounts!

Does anyone know of aftermarket manufacturers that make titanium parts for the GT4? I'm actually looking for ti screws, piviot balls, hinge pins, shafts, etc.

Thanks for the help!

Todd of Smitty's R/C Speedworks is making prototypes for the GT4 in titanium for the outdrives and 2 speed shaft if you're interested. He also makes the 2 speed conversion shaft for the Impulse,NEO,Picco 2 speed assembly for the GT4. Drop him an e-mail if you're intrested. [email protected] . Tell him the cali-boys sent you.

One thing, I would think the RTR would be a bit hardeer to break (more flexible parts?) Even from electric to nitro (probably the main market aim) there would still be a jump, with power.

I'm not sure if the RTR has more flexible parts but the lower and upper arms are made out of nylon and can be boiled for more flexibility. It will be less prone to breakage. The hubs, however, are not nylon and cannot be boiled.

Best bet is get the wide front bumper. Best $10 I ever spent on my car. It will save you a LOT of broken front suspension parts.

I just saw the Impulse Pro on another thread, Serpent copied the GT4 rear roll center geometry!!! It looks like a great car but the GT4 seems to have it right from the beginning.

Default GT4 RTR

GT4 RTR Features(?)
  • Solid Front Axle
  • Rear Gear Diff
  • 2 speed
The rest is pretty normal nitro TCs (kindof), just drivetrain and fuel tank
Thoughts?
