I had the same issue with my nt1. I put a .2mm shim in between the top deck and the servo saver. Haven't had an issue yet

A short vid clip of my G4RS 09 in action at yesterday's club race.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3-Dmyn3fso

I only placed 8th in the A-main, but considering the level of competition (we had two sponsor-level drivers, to give you an idea) there was, I think I'm happy with my A-main trophy .

But the 5 years old stock OS 12TZ I'm running (with bad compression to boot) really gotta go. Looks like I'm stuck with it for the remainder of the season though .

Default CF top deck relief for front belt.

Hi all,

I was assembling my 09 last week and did not like the interferance between the front belt and the top deck so I relieved it slightly with the dremel. Then I see Balestri's car at the euro's and notice a much larger relief than mine! Under acceleration this interferance should be minimal as this will be the slack side of the belt, different story under brakes.

Just a little tip for you guys when you next have the top deck off.

Wow, I like the track.

That is a long back straight and a tight midfield.

I bet the car only hits second gear on the straight-away.

Being completely new to Team Magic, I have a few questions:

1 - what pinion and spur gears are standard with the G4RS?
2 - what shock and diff oils are standard with the G4RS?
3 - is there a stock setup sheet anywhere?
4 - do TM make shock and diff oils, or do most use other brands?
5 - are there any clutch options for the TM? stiffer clutch spring? harder shoe?
6 - are there any anti-roll bar options (ie, thicker bar)?
7 - is there a TM spring chart anywhere? What are the standard shock springs that come with the car?

Did you even drive the new xray before you jumped ship again?????

Hello Magic Men!

Does anyone know where I can find a roll out chart for the 09?

If not what sort of F/R split are you guys running?

TY all.
