If you just wanted to try for Racing, pro is the best choice. If you sure you like the car (after borrowing from friends maybe) and you want both long lasting performance and nice looking, you would be better of building it from options. And yes, it will cost you at least twice the original Pro kit, but looks absolutely nice and advance.

I could do that slowly putting the car together yeah I like the idea I dont care if its more expensive. Where could I find all the option parts for the g4?
I know my LHS supports Team Magic and Trinity but because I am in mexico sometimes its cheaper to buy it online for example a g4 in here cost $500 and I can find one online a lot less. I only buy from them little or flamable things.
Man living here isnt that great for this hobbie everything cost almost double and on work the pay the half

In here, Indonesia, we are selling the pro/E class kit at approximately USD270. You could email Tmagic and asked for the nearest Asian distributor to your country or even get direct from one of taiwan dealers.. you should be able to get a fair and decent price.

Box standard setup sheet is already perfect both for balance and cornering even if you play on 46x22m tracks. Just use same front and rear tires shore. Most of the time is 37-40 for summer.

First thing you must buy is aluminum wheels hex as the original comes in plastic. After couple of hours playing, upgrade the sterring saver block to aluminum one as you will get better movement, alignment, as well as tighter (less slops). From here on, if you decided to really really like and wanted to keep the car for so long... sell the current one and start building from option parts (..just in my opinion). Be aware, for full option car, it will cost you close to 3 times the E class kit car (based on USD270)

Just give it a try and you will amaze...

PS: Never G4 car kit comes with newer revision of fuel tank (75cc, the old one is 68cc). Both tanks have identical part number. Newer one have blue dot sticker on it.

Hey Kmac... Thanks for posting the blank setup sheets over on the Team Magic sit!!! They're a must have for dialing in your cars... Just dumped most of my other cars... MTX3, R40 and NTC3 for the G-4... Got one decked out in true Carbon Fiber treatment... Running both on the West Coast. Hands down, this is the best car on the market today... Just wish more people would give this car a try. Check out the G4 pics on the link below and let me know what you all think. Happy Holiday's and racing!!!

Default Parts

Hey guys,

Southeastrc.com

Has a good selection of G4 parts and they tell you when it can be shipped. I have been searching for an online store that ships parts as fast as Tower and is just as dependable.

These stores have G4 parts.

rcmodels.com = Kinda slow, but they eventually shipped me my
parts after two weeks of waiting. (Doesn't mean
that its in my hand yet)
Horizon = Pretty fast, but kinda high.
Southeastrc.com = I haven't tried them yet.
Shopatron = SLOW. Waited for like three days. Still didn't
ship. CS could not give me an estimated time
when they would ship. Cancelled the order.

Great Job..

I`m wondering if the purpose is mainly to well balance the car as 2x servos + receiver on one side would have been heavier than 1x inline pipe on the other side.

Because this mods not only takes time, but building and changing battery would have also been pain the a?s
