i believe that you can use some of the 2 speed components from the serpent if you want to make the 2 speed mechanism lighter on that car , my friend Henry had the reflex and i had to give him some serpent parts at a race to fix his car and they bolted right on. something you might want to try.

that spur gear might break by the constant torque of the motor plus the heat that it generates, by how much you took out and made it weaker, honestly your are not going to notice a big change in you car's performance by drilling the spur gear out, you be better off getting something like a lighter flywheel or a hollow shaft for the 2 speed. also you might not be taken off the weight equally of the spur gear and as it is spinning the spur gear might not be balance and you will be doing more harm than good. Possibly adding vibration to your car. just my opinion.

your car gear ratio will go down while you run by calculation as some of the Ts will disappear. the mod spur gear looks good but it will not work afterall.

1. lighter receiver pack
2. lighter servo
3. lighter pivot ball
4. lighter body paint

The G4 is supposed to be one the lightest touring cars in the market.
