It wouldn't be so bad if it were more solid. But since the thing flexes under the weight of the car, it seems near impossible to keep your fingers away from the heat sink.

Nitrodude.
GS bladders and orings fit Get the 1/10th kit. The bladders are a must have for the shocks in my opinion.

Revolution you can use mugen springs or associated springs. I know guys using both

Yes the stock handle needs some work. Try using it with a VDS body. Ray and brad get totally jacked when they have to pit my car with the stock handle.
I went to the three racing handle on that car. for a standard sedan I could give a rip cause I never run the car with the body off anyway. If you've ever flipped a sedan that was wound up with the body off you know what I'm talking about. It just spits parts off the car. Anybodys car.


Jnims
if your using the red spring adios the brass inserts from the flyweights.

Until now not a single problem with the 635HB servos ... if they last well, i think that they are an excellent value for the money ...

Thumbs up UFO

I must say that this clutch has convinced me to keep this car. I have been having clutch problems from day one, but when I put this clutch in it was like night and day. I have so much bottom end punch now that the car literally jumps off the ground from a dead start. Only thing I changed in the clutch was the spring. I use the extra hard mugen spring.

Whats the smallest pinions and the bigest spurs for this car? I saw a 19t pinion on the site, and on a later page I saw an 18t pinion. Im about to get one and i run on a very small track ( at least for practice). I will be buying an Mongoose, not G4. Please let me know so I can order the stuff when I order the kit.

thanks

For small track use 18T pulley for higher gear ratio. 18T pinion is use for S-Class gear set only.

The 19t comes with the kit. I got the 18t and it was actually larger than the 19. Go figure! The Largest spur is the 52, but this gear will not work with the light weight 2 speed. If you use the stock 2 speed equipment you won't have to worry about it.
