BlueDragon, We thought it might work, but thanks for the confirmation.

Has anyone tried the K-factory ball diff? And how reliable is it?

Kyosho shocks are piece of crap, leaking all the time.
I personally use Yokomo SS shock. Best shock ever...

My Mugen MTX-2/3 shocks are excellent, really smooth, consistant and easy to bleed. They haven't given me problems since I got my first MTX-2 when it was released. Boring hard-anodized greenish gray color but I like that all business look .

Have tried the ball diff, easy to install and perform well at high traction track

I have never found any shock bladders that work. I hear the mugen do but no one has them that I know of. I tried to use a pair of Tamiya shocks, but they were too big. If I cant get the mugen bladders, I know I cant get the mugen shocks. Were do you get the Yokomo shocks?

tl2111, let us know if you run into any quality issues. I want to get the ball diff, but will wait until more feedback from racers.

Please note, the G4 shocks do work and very well... There's a post a few pages back that state how to set your shock up... I'm sure you may have read it... If not, search for it and check it out...

I'm i'm running rubber tires i should set up the back to have thicker oil and stiffer springs than the front corect? No sway bars on either the front or back. What ride heights should i be running? This would be for an unprepared surface, blacktop.

Thanks,
Mike

Sorry, I am running my NTC3 right now, because my friend that bought his G4 at the same time I did went through three servos and missed three weekends of racing. That's not my idea. Now that we have the update I am building my car and we have had shock problems with his car. What page is that info or could you pm me. Thanks

Look up for Team Magic G4 Set-Ups. They are all proven rubber set-ups of the current leading car in British Rubber Class Championship.

Hope they help

Yes, Mugens are also good. But I don't like it's standard o-ring though

how often should you replace the small o rings that go by the shock shaft? The ones where the little clip holds them in near the bottom of the shock body on the stock shocks.

Thanks,
Mike
