Zizu... Motorman makes a good post about the gears on the Mongoose thread on page 11... Check it out as it may help as well... The key is gear mesh and to make sure you're not engaging to late with your shift point. I hope I didn't confuse you much.. lol Good luck

isuzuguy.. I have the G4/Mongoose gear ratio chart... Tried to upload it... Didn't work... PM me and I'll send it you. All you have to do in plug in numbers/gears you're running or want to run and the chart will give you your ratio... You can even plug in the side/brake pulleys as well... ie 18, stock 19 and even 20 and it'll give you your gear ratio. If someone know how I can upload it... It's in Mircosoft word, let me know and I'll upload for everyone.

Try lower your shock oil and use 35 rear 37 front or 37 all round for the tires.

yes that is exactly where I would go first. 37's all the way around and soften the shock oil 35 or 40 is a good place to start. your front end is way to hard for unprepped asphault. change front droop to 0
