ive had mine for about 3-4 months now with a number of races and track time under its belt (more than 3 gallons gas time line ), finished 3rd in one race (rubber) and the hardest one was a lemans 2hour two car run which ended after a big accident resulting in a broken manifold, universal dogbone and front shock tower an hour and ten minutes into the race. Our team mates finished third though which was a good outing for the G4, its posted in the website of TM. the cars pretty tough from my experience just be careful of bind in the steering rail and the epa and tension of the servo saver. im also using kyosho belts which seem more durable than the one included in the evo kit. and one more thing bring a spare thrust bearing just in case, im using the serpent now.

Mr. Shims, i have also read that people use the serpent clutch. What do you mean that you are using the serpent now? Just the thrust bearing, or the whole clutch. I bought an extra thrust bearing a long time ago its not actually a bearing, looks more like a washer. I bought it off ebay.

What servo are you using for steering Mr. Shims and Pit stops? I'm using the futaba s9451 but its kinda big. I was just wondering which one you were using.

Pitstops, i ordered it from RCmodel.com.hk and the part number for the rrr hubs is VZ201. Just go to that website and do a search for that part number and it will come up.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

I have tried a few different servos for steering on my G4, the one I have now and has woked the best is an Airtronics 94357 I believe that is the part number, but is works great. Been thinking of trying a JR 8550 though I have one in my 1/8 buggy for the steering and it is a power house for steering, lots of torue but I think if I change my steering system this 357 will be perfect on the torque side as it is plenty fast.

I will go check out that site for the knuckles thanks.

Bryan

Thanks border, i truthfully hate having to use alen wrenches on my car. It was so much faster when i had normal philips heads screws but they all rusted. I have to buy a few school books here (college sucks) and i'll see if i have the extra cash to buy these. Do they rust??

Thanks,
Mike

Last time I used S9550 (both throttle and steering) which is the best suited the G4 car in my opinion.

Ok, well this really has nothing to do with the G4 itself, but we were sorting through all the goodies our club was given for a couple of our races this year. and one of the cool things we have left is from KO Propo, it is a certificate for 50% off retail pricing from anything they carry. My club president gave to me, and seeing as I have already used they 1 I won early in the year I do not need this one, so he said sell it to someone, I think I will offer it to the first person who asks for it that will actually use it. (note it expires on the 31st of December, so if you won't use it buy then don't ask for it. leave to some one who can.) Also for those of you who all live in the same area if you want to pul together for an order there is no limit to what you can order, it just all has to be on one order. We did this with a couple of guys I race with and it worked out great.

Please pm me if you are interested.

not sure what he used but I think as long as you find servos with a good amount of torque and high speed you should be fine.

I am installing the new steering system right now. It hits two things when you turn it left and right. On both sides it hits the front bulk head whrere you screw the new system into the old spot and the second place is the servo saver arm hits the fricken belt. What a piss poor design. Come on people. This is such shit. I'm not wasting any more money on this fricken car. We wait a whole year for a damn steering fix and this is what they come up with?

I'm sorry guys for ripping TM, i'm just so mad that everytime you go to put something on this car you have to modify it somehow. Why can't they just make these fricken parts work. Why do you think the G4 in the world nationals is using the old system. i can't believe they even released this thing without more testing being done to it. The damn thing is still sloppy cause if you tighten down on the bearings it makes the system really hard to sway back and forth and if you loosen it up it wobbles up and down.

Time for a new car.

Mike

Mike,

dont give up on the car just yet. I am not sure why some people including you are having trouble with the new steering system. I am new to the car as well, only 2 race days on it, and installed the updated steering when i assembled the car and it has no problems at all. I checked it over quite a bit when i installed it to see if it was hitting anything and it wasnt. I dont know if it matters what servo you are running, i have an airtronics 94757. I am at work now but when i get home I will check again and let you know if i can figure something out.

Blake

Here are some pictures. I have modified my front bulkhead so much. I grinded the back screw hole off because i wasn't going to use it in the first picture, and the second picture the whole servo saver is raising the damn belt just sitting there with no tension.



I'm so tired of this crap. I mean come the hell on. What am i going to do about the servo saver. Even if i grind some of that off it still hits the ball cup. I can grind the ball cup some to but not enough. i already thought about it. Either way its going to wear my belt out.

From the looks of the picture you can't tell that the belt is hitting the whole servo saver, but it is. I can't seem to take good pictures so you'll have to deal with it. You can see the belt is raised though. THAT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN WHEN THIS WAS DESIGNED TO FIX THE PROBLEMS WITH THE OLD STEERING. Who do they have doing the research, fricken hampsters?!?!?!
