Default G4 E class handling problem

Hiya......

Just brought a G4 E class, this car is amazing coz i am turning faster lap time than my rody c5 mrx3 !!!

The problem is that there a sharp oversteer into the beginning of the corner ( a bit like a motorbike backend kick), but can be corrected into the rest of the corner. The car is standard setup except for 10.000 wt oil in rear diff, and orange springs at the front, as i have too much steering with the silver springs !!! 45 shore at front and 42 rear.

Any advices to get me going even more quicker would be grateful.

thanks

xtreme888: You could try adjusting your caster or giving the front end some toe-in.

Default Rear diff or solid axle G4 E class

Hello,

As i mentioned before i have been driving 4wds 1/8th with solid axle and front one way........

What are the pros and cons of either a diff or solid axle with a front way? How would each affect the car handlings?

Thanks

Is there a difference in the Pro and E class models? And does either the Pro or E come with a body and tires?

I think the E class does, but the Pro doesn't. I'm not sure though.

I have finally replaced my servo saver. It turns much quicker now. I'm using the aluminum rail mounts and a new stock G4 servo saver. My servo even resets to center. I hope this one lasts longer.

Sorry, we don't offer any direct sale services at the moment.

You can try Border on-line, RC Nut or rc model hk.

It's time to buy the G4. I checked RC Nut. G4 E-class (Pro)--US$ 275.
