Did your G4 not come with the one-way? Did you have to buy yours seperately? Probably doesn't have much to do with the problem you're having, but it seems like a simple problem that can be fixed with a replacement part.

Hey guys I know I have to put the G-4 on a step up board before I go on the track. But on page 11 Step 5 the front assembly setup. The book says 33 mm (inside specs) for the steering rods. This can't be right my car looks like it just hit a crack pipe. 33mm?????

I tried a dogbone off of a Yokomo GT-4 (it's 56 mm vs 52 for the G4) but it's just a hair too long and will cause binding. It looks like a 54 mm will be the perfect length.
KMac,

Yes. Team Magic did produce longer dogbones, and it includes in the newest kit batch. With longer dogbones (55 mm) you don't need those o-rings anymore. But I have aproblem using these dogbones for rear as they're too long for 198 track width. I just replace it with Kyosho (52 mm)

Here's the part# :
K1409-1 G4 & V1 One-Way Joint Cup (2)

Yes, it is 33 mm. But of course you have to re-setup again since mostly people use diferent trackwidth and of course it infects your front toe adjusment. Feel free to adjust it, just remember that those right & left turnbuckle length has to be equal. This is a good starting point to have steering balance.

Looks like you have your tie rods too long. That should be fairly obvious. There's nothing else that you can adjust for that either.

So, just make 'em a little shorter. Maybe you are measuring it the wrong way?


Oh, I just noticed. Those steering knuckles aren't stock. Maybe there's a different adjustment for those and then 33mm for the stock steering knuckles.

Glad to help out a fellow nitro tourer. I see you already have some hot mods installed. Good luck on your maiden run.

Your problem is with the aftermarket steering rack/servo saver. It has the ball ends mounted further out than on the original plastic one. You have to shorten the tie-rods to account for it.

Thanks...... I'm going to put it on a setup board. I totally forgot about the Hop Ups affecting the stock stearing setup. Sniffing to much Nitro Fuel... Hopefully have the car ready this weekend. One last question I know Rc_Alan likes KO servo but what's a good steering servo that you guys suggest???? Throttle shouldn't be a problem, right?? Just the steering because there's not alot of room to mess with, right?

Yes this is true. With the K-factory servo saver, you have to shortened the tie-rods about 3 mm.

I prefer Sanwa VX (Very high torque to reduce posibility for broken servo). And I think Sanwa servo is the most fit in shape for TM G4 steering.

Cool.... Mine is all silver Hey, I notice that you don't use the alum hex wheel and rear belt tensioner. Go get 'em !!! Those are the most important optional parts for G4.
