I m interested in buying this car. How does it compare to MTX3? Also I heard that some parts are interchangeable with Kyosho, which parts are those?

G4 vs MTX3, Good question!!

G4 has more corner speed at the corner. I'm very impressed by G4. I have seen that many people has more good results whan they start to run G4 here.

As stable as NTC3;I gave it five stars! (*****)
As strong as V-ONE series;Still five stars! (*****)
As fast as MTX3. Five stars! (*****)
But... not so easy to assemble...(***)
Not so easy to maintain...(****)

About MTX3;It's more user friendly. Easy to assemble and maintain. If you are not experienced in R/C cars,MTX3 is a good choice.

Stable...(****)
Strong...(****)
Fast.......(*****)
Easy to assemble...(*****)
Easy to maintain....(*****)

Just my $0.02. Both of them are good cars.

Could not agree more with what Cutepig has said..

I have found ways to make the maintanance 'easier' by not mounting the receiver on its upper deck braket. Instead, I mount it on the lower deck bracket (it is intended for protector actually).

Just like Josh C' did, now you can install the antena holder (you must buy this) in top of the receiver utilizing one of those screw holes to mount the recv bracket on upper deck. This way, you would only need to open 8 screws (7 on top and 1 on the bottom) to take the whole upper deck off. It would really helps on cleaning the whole car completely.

Can normal size receiver fit to this car, in my case my 3PK's receiver? I m asking this because I read it somewhere in the magazine about you have to have a micro size receiver for this car.

I use R113IP PCM receiver for 3PK and find no problem at all to fit it properly... This I believe already bigger size compare to RX311 from Sanwa

Spent sime time to get the most possible friction free steering rack.

Go get the aluminum wheel hex as the standard comes with plastic hex... This is the only option you must buy..

Pyramid, I just bought the G4 over the weekend and have completed the car yesturday. I to am having a bad time with the steering assemby... It's way to tight with a little friction. The wheels should turn smoothly... On this car, it just feels way to tight. I'm using a Hitec servo, .08 speed and torque is over (100oz per.in) What did you do to correct the friction you were having with your steering setup??? Any help would be apeciated. Thanks

Let me try my best to explain what I did when building...

Assuming front bulkhead assembly (including top braket that has the 5th body post) already mounted in the chassis..

Loosen both 4 screws (2 left, 2 right) that hold the steering rails (those 2 shinny shafts). Now move the whole servo savers against L bulkhead (looking the car from behind) and then tighten both screws (not over tighten) on that side. Then move the whole servo savers to the other side and just do the exact same thing.

I found that ajusting the servo saver shaft that way, gives the best result... but of course someone might have found better way.. please share with us.

Perhaps you should invite Josh Cyrul over at the Electric Forum and see if he can remember how he built his G4...

Do you know the length of the G4 side belt?
The RR/Evo has a shorter belt than the standard V-oneR.

Thanks in advance.

I had a problem with the brake system on my G4 pro kit. Once built, the calipers slightly bumped against the screws which held the disk onto the shaft. I checked it and rebuilt it several times, with no luck. I eventually had to file down about a millimeter from the two calipers. Did anyone else have this problem?

yes. same exact thing. From what I've heard on the boards is that most people just didn't even install the brake guide.

Just filing them down works fine.


Any word on the new tank yet?
