Hey, how does that G4 drive compared to your Yokomo GT-4 that you are selling?

Default G4 and Yok

Although my G4 is 80% done I've driven my friends G4 and it's like night and day. The Yok is nice but tends to get away from me in turns. Where the G4 just sticks around turns. I've tried everything on the Yok and my driving style just don't mesh.

It pushes or does the back-end kick out?

It pushes...... I race a small tight track and the gear even with the right gearing just can't keep up. I really like low CG car. TC3's just tear my track up. I tried the G4 and like it. I also love the Mugen MTX-3 both cars are great. Once I convert my V one RR to an evo it should be a contender..... BTW-Nice looking car!!!

I started out with a HPI Super Nitro then a Nitro rs43 SS. So I'm still use to driving a car with a front diff and four wheel braking. I drove a TC3 and I really missed the ability to brake hard in the corners. I felt more at home with the TC3 than the G4. Our track in Houston is sort of like a medium track with tight turns. So, I think the stock G4 gearing is ok for now, until I get a better feel for the car.

My G4 is kind of a novelty to me, because I'm still trying to get use to the driving style.

Thanks for the compliment Nitro P .

Let's see some pics of yours.

Default Tyres Size For E class

Hiya,

This is gonna sound like a silly question , but could anyone out there tell me what is the standard setup split ( diameter different between front and rear ) ? What is the OD ratio for using standard pully, and also what is the starting diameter for both end ? This is a 4 wds car, hence overdrive must falls into the equation somewhere !!!

Thanks

the g4 overdrive is ~1,3.....
don't worry about the different diamter between rear and front tires......
it does really matter only due to the tire wear, maybe rear tires 1mm bigger than front will work good for an entire race, but the overdrive almost not chance using even diameter or bigger diameter for the rear tires....

Nitropimp... I'm using the special 26 tooth side pulley to add more on power steering... I really does work very well... The G4 does tend to push a little bit, but that's due to track conditions change from day to day... I just got my copy of RC Car Action and read Joel Johnson's article... Very good reading, but I must say the Endpoint adjustment-Step 13 is key and your duel rate settings as well... Also where you mount your steering servo ball stud. I mount mine on the lower hole to have a true horizontal/movement left to right... The manual on page 23 says it should be parallel with the sliding steering rails... To keep from going through steering servo savers this is very important and if you mount the ball stud on the steering servo arm on the lower hole, you'll have to adjust your endpoint and dual rate for the lack of throw, but your steering will be smooth and servo saver won't prematurely wear out... If you mount the ball stub on the top hole.. Like Joel Johnson, on page 142 step 6, you'll have more throw, but your servo savers won't last long either and you could ruin your steering servo as well. The binding issue Joel Johnson speaks about is true also and should be checked closely when setting your EPA. This tip is for all G4 owners new and old... Joel might have missed that one... Kmac and Nickko posted good tips on this as well.... It's great to see Team drivers from Trinity backing the G4 in RC mags as well... Oh, I see he likes to use the KO Propo servos as well... Sanwa's work fine also for those who like them...

Default 26mm rear

hiya guys,

have anybody try running 26mm front tires on the rear instead of 30mm ? if yes, how was the car handling affected ? Rear tires are wearing twice the rate of front ( 42` rear & 45` front ).

thanks
