Hi Guys just wondering I just got my pro G4 kit and the rear diff is a geared diff. Is that standard in this kit. If so is there a optionial Ball diff I can get for it or does the geared diff work ok? I have raced for many year but only in electric and have made the move to gas so sorry for all my questions.
Thanks again for your help

the geared diff is standard with the g4, and works fine, i believe team magic have just releast a ball diff, but i don't see the benifits, i ran a ntc3 which has ball diffs and they were a pain in the arse. you can build your geared diff and forget about it.

Default centax clutch issues

I have still having bad centax issues. I have made it much better than it was a few weeks ago but it still doesn't have the grab like the mtx-3's do.

Is there anything I can do to help this?

does the serpent 710 cluth shoe fit it?

The stock clutch shoes should work just fine... I think I've seen the red ones online like RC-Mart I think... The best thing to do is change the clutch spring to the Yokomo hard spring... The Mugen spring is way to hard and won't work correctly... Try the Yokomo hard spring, make sure your tranny is shimmed correctly and you shouldn't have to many problems.. Hope the info helps.. Post back...

Oh, the Red clutch shoes are very hard and look trick... but you really don't need them... Try the springs switch.... G4 stock, Yokomo stock and Yokomo hard.. Always have extra shims.. The clutch bell should spin freely.... Make sure everything is clean.. ie not oils or debris in there either... The clutch should never be to loose nor tight... I know you all know this... Just passing on the info for those who need it...

Default Red clutch shoe

were busy with this to fit the g4 clutch .

hope its finishd in 3 weeks for selling we have to make a few adj.
about the 710 clutch yes it will fit but the only problem are the gears to small only good for a short track the biggest 1st gear is 18-23 from serpent.
the kawahara clutch works also on the G4 - with the G4 clutch bell.
more easier to put on use the flywheel weights presurre plate and shoe rest G4

4racer... Not sure where you're located... Most hobby shops carry them and should have them in stock... Or you can go to RCMart.com RCModel.com Tower hobbies or you can try TheBorderRC.com...
