One way for me in front, Kyosho TCD gear diff filled with 30.000 kyosho silicone oil in rear. Will get my Kawahara neg diff to fit in the G4, it kinda sits quite snugly in the car right now.
Tires i ran this weekend was LRP, 40 in front and 42 in rear, that's mostly to make wearing even in front and rear.
Engine was the new Novarossi IDM 3 port turbo. Expensive but worked hella good! At this track i had a real advantage because it's extremely fast and sweepy.
Small pic of it

Trophy girls, we're not quite lucky as you americans.....
Weather was SUNNY and hot for this time of the year, around 20-23 degrees C in the shadow and 50+ in asphalt, kickin' grip with some Trackbite!

Cheers!

You will need to dremel the rear bulk quite a bit to get the neg diff rolling smoothly. (you will need to use the stock shock tower and dremel it as well) I installed one and sold it as I can't get the thing to roll freely!

Nah.. wil use my dads lathe for the first time in about 2 years for truing down the diff housing. will probably do some dremeling to the bulk too

My setup in short
Standard silver springs
Camber: 4 in rear, 2,5 in front
Toe: 2 in rear, 0 front
Caster: all laid back
Downstop: 3 in rear and 1 in front
Tires: 42 rear, 40 front, LRP
Damper positions: rear, all laid down, front: outer hole in both positions

I think the rest of the setup is Standard setup

i had lil accident on sunday.
everythingwas good, the car ran perfectly, my tires were down to plastica and they were still hookin for me. i finished my last tank when my buddy with yokomo pro started to call me out. he was trying to get past me all day but didnt not have his car setup right to even run next to me. i figured wat the hell let me fill up last tank and show him wat g4 is al about AGAIN. few laps later im ahead when im coming into the sweeper from the straightaway, my car somes into the turn and takes off full speed, about 50 feel later it hits a curb.
make a long story short my wire on the batteries came loose and the car took off. the chassis is bent in 3 places, case for 9402 servo is broken, universal is slightly bent, tanks just cracked in half, and front bumper is lil messedup. amazingly no plastic is damages, nothing is cracked!!!!. i just fiinished ordering spare parts , lots a $$$ . I was planning to go to Connecticut this weekend to race but looks like that thats not goin to happen. .

Brooklynrc- Bummer sorry to hear that. Was it a 3mm or 4mm chasis? I don't know if you ordered your parts yet but I might have a G4 roller for sale HOPPED. I'm not sure but I might be getting another car. It might save you on cost!! If your interested PM me.

IDM is Daniele Ielasis "signature" engine.
Some sites i've found with it
Spanish site..
German..
The price i bought it for is around 400$ if you go at the daily rating, 3700SEK
It will probably be cheaper in the US because you don't have these ridicilous prices we have
