Beauty is is in the eye of the beholder!

Remember this, if a factory driver such as Joel Johnson, Josh Cyrul, Astushi Hara, Ralph Burch, etc, etc, etc...... won the nitro worlds driving square tires and a brick for a body, you'd bet your ass monday mornig every hobby shop would be selling square tires, and nice new shiny bricks.
The TM G4 has every capability, that every other car out there has and thensome, it is a matter of patience, and TESTING. Anyone can a set a chassis to win. I personally have owned all the rest, now I have the BEST. It is that simple....



If you choose to bash the car, do it quietly, we dont need to here the SH#$ !!! We are dedicated user's of one of the finest tourers to date., sorry to see you are dissapointed.
But I must ask, are you bashing this car, because of radio problems?

And Nitropimp, if you sell your car who's avatar am I going to look at all night long? That's ashame, a brand new E-class never run. It's like having a race bred stallion in the stables, and never taught to walk. What a waste, but I wish you luck with you next adventure.

Remember, these are toy cars, we have fun with them then come back to reality on monday.

budlightnmyhand,
if you give up this soon with your 1st car, youll never have a car to drive!!! I recommend staying with the car at least until next season.
If you don't like the g4, i don't think you'll like much else

TQ in the last race, placed in 3rd after some real weird weather. The first 5 minutes it was dry, then it drizzled just a little to make the track slippery and then it was dry for about 5-10 minutes and then drizzle and so on for 45 minutes

I've tried many setups, such as springs. damper oils and those stuff. But everytime i've tried anything i come back to the original setup on oil and springs.

One thing i mounted to the car is the Kawahara Negative diff for V-One filled with Kyosho 50'000 wt oil (I had half 25'000 and half 50'000 in the original diff., made it possible to mount it by mounting it to a drill and took a file and let it loose on the end of the diff housing until it fitted in the bulkheads
The car got MUCH faster and responsive with this setup

I have made some body tests now also and i came to that the Mazda 6 is the fastest but it's kind of twitchy, Stratus 2.1 is a tiny little bit slower but much more stable on both straights and curves. PF Vauxhall Astra BTCC is kind of in the middle of Mazda and Stratus 2.1. Alfa 2.0 is just weird. Almost no rear traction and no steering some times, just weird..

Hope you understood my reply, i got a A+ on the last english test btw

Default bodies

Sparx,
I have tried every body out there currently. My favorites are the Mazda 6, MG, and the Alfa. I also am starting to like the new HPI Aero Stratus.

Has anyone seen the new Protoform Nemesis? It is only in 190mm right now, but I am sure it wont take long to make the 200mm one.

i found a similar problem with the alfa 2 body, seems to give you nothing, mainly just use stratus 1 and 2.1, think i will have to give the mazda 6 a try
