Yesterday, the G4 have a close competition with the newest Kyosho RRR. I must say both car handles good and very consistent, especially the new RRR. Finally the G4 wins after the RRR flames out before 5 mins refuel (looks like we are not the only one suffered from fuel tank or mileage problems)

We can't wait and desperately need those new centax set soo bad now

At the moment, we are working on the parts for VDS body. Also new pulleys & new pinion gears to have better acceleration & higher speed.

The Lola VDS bodies can be mounted pretty easily. About the only thing that sucks is the roll bar, which made pit stops a bit more troublesome than usual.

All I did was cut the foam bumper down so that the angle matched that of the body, cut the upper bumper brace at the same angle while still using the silicone grommets, used the bottom holes in the front shock tower and dremeled off the nubs, and that was it. It's a Yokomo body. The good thing about using the foam bumper is that you don't have to worry about the bumper bending down onto the ground after a brush with the wall...this happened to a lot of drivers.

I think the nose could have been a tad lower, but it doesn't look like a rally car like a lot of other conversions look like. Here's how it ran at the ROAR nats a few weeks ago:

You can use handle bar from 3Racing. It's quite good...

K Factory is looking for quality drivers to test the new products.

The test drivers can get the parts free of charge, but we need you to do some works for us.

If you are interested, please contact us. Thanks.

Once people start using the new steering system, please let us know how it works. Also, how easy it is to install.
Thanks

The new steering works great. I believe some racers already have them.

Is the G4 supported by your local model shops? If not, could you tell us your local dealers? We will do our best to improve the parts supply & support. Thanks.
