I got my little box of wonders couple days ago. #222/999

Only the radio and the engine is left now to put in.

All I can say is the workmanship is just beyond this world. From what I can see TM found could CNC machines laying around and had them work for free. TM has out done themselves, and literally burried the rest of the manufacturers to some dusty history pages....

Exquisite manufacturing, attention to detail leaves you speechless. TM has destroyed the bell curve for the points given to cars.... Hell I would give the G4S a 9 easily, now the G4+ came out, I either have to give it 15 out of 10 or reduce the G4S to 4

Amazing people... just amazing. From the logos on the shock towers to etching on the chassis to the markings on the shocks to help you seperate the front from the rear. I just cant wait to drive the sucker

It is worth every penny. The only thing missing from the car is the aluminium center shaft support and the aluminium servo mounts. Everything else is there.

from the looks of the two cars, there is no point for upgrading the G4S. as far as I can see you only common things they have is the springs, the screws, hingepins, ball cups and some small plastic parts (servo saver connectors etc.)

Hi Krafcik,

Yes there will be a contigent there from Team Magic America. I would imagine there will be others driving the G4s that will also be going.

TMA Team Include:

Steve Perez
Mike Blackstock
Tony Cope

Obviously details still need to be finalized, but that is the provisional team to go.

Yes Mike Blackstock will be there as well as Steve Perez. I am glad Tony is planning to go there as well. I am sure we will have other drivers of the G4 there as well. We will be well represented. So Krafcik, please make your way over and say hi to our TMA Marketing & Distribution team. Ask Mike for his autograph to build him up!!! lol
