Joe,

Some things to try:

Flatten the front swaybar and stiffen the rear.

Narrow the front end of the car a little. Try and run it 196mm. Make sure the steering doesn't bind on the arms, if it does then trim a little material from the arms.

Do the shock mod(1.3mm holes in the pistons) and try that.

Cheers,

Mike.

thanks mike, i already run the rear swaybar at 45deg and the front flat,
i think narrowing the front is whats missing so i'll try that, if it's not enough next thing will be the shock mod,just have to see if i have a 1.3mm bit in my tool kit
thanks again for the help mike
p.s the kickass mod sirio will make life a little difficult for me i'm thinking
cheers
joe

i had invested in 2 G4 mongoose's, one second hand and a brand new kit supplied by CASAVAL RACING TEAM. as i spent so much money on the 2 cars, i am not able to get the G4s upgrade for quite a while. i have read the posts here on this forum and did some other research. i decided i was going to try and modify the mongoose to get better weight distribution. i did make the changes in line with the G4s, and i found it not too hard to get the car balanced. i made a battery pack 2x2x1 and ground the radio plate, which took out the switch mounting. i then used the plastic holder for the original battery pack to mount the reciever. i changed the wiring so that i just use the plug as like the G4s. no switch. the only thing i needed to do is raise the fuel tank mounting pin at the front as the tank hit the battery. after a race meet i found the steering to be much improved, and equal both ways. the tyre wear is also even. this is the easiest way to greatly improve the mongoose. i am going to try modify the steering later down in time but dont have the same urgency to do so anymore. here is the link for photos. http://www.users.on.net/~dianellacc/index.htm
this is well worth the effort. no parts needed, or the cash for the G4s upgrade.

I switched to the G4S too. Way easier to drive and more predictable and balanced.

I still drive the mongoose in empty, smooth parking lots. I'll keep it for a while because I've got tons of parts.
