the chassis that comes in the evo kit is basically the same as the standard g4 but with slightly altered battery shot and titanium in colour, the 3mm k-factory will be similar too the 4mm hop-up item, alot of people moaned that the 4mm chassis was too heavy, hence the 3mm

I've held my original G4 and EVO chassis side to side and can't notice any difference in color, the tank has more clearance tho..

it depends on whether yours is the upgrade version of the stock chassis...the older version of the stock chassis....does not hve a relieve area for the fuel tank near the battery position and the mounting holes of the bottom of the chassis is deeper than the new version which gives rise to the cracking of the chassis where left stiffener sits.

Raving_monkey, I hear from some guys that the low-fricion belts don't last too long. I you need replacements, try the Kyosho Special belts. They should be an even swap on to your car and I haven't had to changed them all season. And make sure your pulleys aren't worn. Sometime a little pebble could chunk a tooth and make it sharp which will eventually weaken the entire belt.

Congrats and good luck with it!
