All genuine G4RS Shockies have threaded ride height adjustments.

Kindest regards,

When making up my own cells, I slip short lengths of heat shrink over each end of the batteries to prevent grounds touching each other. It spaces each cell apart slightly and is more durable than the harder shrink that TM uses.

With a lot of help from my mates at the LHS here in Canberra I have finally got around to getting the new Motor into my G4RS 09.

She is now good to go and "Run In" (Thanks Team at Stryke RC here in Canberra)

Hope you all like and enjoy and I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
