Be carefull for not having a full steering throw because of that..

I can't believe I tried to stick those BIG "O" rings inside that shock.

No..... I tried to put inside the shock not inside the spring collar. I thought you said that I switched "O" rings from the inner shock "O" ring the one inside the cap.. I'm telling you I had a Nitro high for awhile.... Couldn't even read for awhile...

Hey guys,
I haven't heard from K-MAC lately. I was wondering if any of you got an update on how his steering mod was coming.

Problems with Taking off

Hi guys,

Problems with my car today, I run on a small tight track and running with the stock pinion gear. I am however changed the spur gear to 52 and 48.

Now the problem is that the car was running quite fast, until I noticed it was not shifting to second gear. Once I fixed it and it started shifting, the car would take off after it shifted to second gear and was hard to control. I hit the barrier a few times and broke the servo saver arm.

My questions are:

1). Is the arm prone to break and I should be heaps of spares?
2). Is the gearing to low? Is the 2nd gear not adjusted or is it the radio glitch I heard about the G4?

Thanks

Sami

the plastic servo savers aren't prone to breaking, but if you hit barriers ect. you cant expect the car not to break, doesn't matter what car you run, this will happen.

i wouldn't of thought the gearing on your car would make it hard to control.

your electrics, try and make your wiring as neat as possible, make sure the receiver isn't touching your chassis, the vibration can cause glitching

Well guys, i was just finishing my break in of my engine and all of a sudden my throttle servo popped out and my car shot up on to the grass in my front yard. My engine ran at close to wot for a while, but luckily there was no traction on grass, so it just sat there and made noise. It really made me mad, b/c when i installed the servo i even put a washer to hold the clamps down better and the screws just popped right off, no trace of them I didn't have a ny damage , but i was emotionally scarred for life j/k Anyway, has this happened to anyone else?

Which of the above kits is better? The team magic is $299US while the border costs: 480US

Opinions?

Thanks

Reposition of Antenna

Hi guys,

I have seen a few photos of G4s with the antenna in a different spot than the stock version. Is there a reason for this?

Thanks

Sami
