Can I run the new 18 tooth S-Class Clutch Gear with a 23 tooth second gear on my factory G4 centax clutch bell and still maintain proper gear clearances? This setup would yield a 7.30 first gear final and a 5.27 second gear final which should be good for a tight track. Any other thoughts?

Can I run the new 18 tooth transmission shaft pulleys without changing belts and/or tensioners?

Thanks for your response,
ED
I will be trying the 18tooth pulley setup and 18tooth speed gears setup tomorrow on a real small track. I will report back this weekend on how it worked.

disconnect the rear anti-roll bar then use the rear downstop to limit the rear chassis roll.

Thankyou, is it something that RDLogics and yourself are working on is it Team Magic? I have spoken to you in the past about the steering issues and it ended up being the deciding factor in me ditching the car in the end. However i do have two friends that i race with that have both G4's.

Mr. Motorman,


Downhere in southamerica we always have to buy from USA so due to the fact im thinking on buying a new kit im about to choose going for the mongoose.

Now, downhere we run IFMAR based rulebook but with just 1 exception .... we run RUBBER TIRES. I see the mongoose come with front one way and rear diff, is there a chance to pick up a mongoose with FRONT AND REAR DIFF ?, and buy an extra front solid axle ? (if there exist one for the G4) ?.

Now im runing with my Yokomo GT4W2L but Yokomo left us nitro 200mm guys alone for a while so im looking for switch brands ... and i like to innovate to i dont want to buy Serpent or Associated wich are most of peopole running around here ...

thanks for any comment,

Cya,

Pat

You must buy separate front diff....i'ts not expensive...and since it is similar to Kyosho's there is an optional part from Kyosho to convert fron diff on to solid axle...... it's a simple bolt on part..saw it somewhere in the Kyosho V1rrr thread.
To run it on Rubber tires all you need apart from front diff, is make a lower third hole on rear uprights, to lower camber linkage fixing point (courtesy of Darren Jonhson British National Rubber Champion with TMG4).
When you get the car i can send you about 6 differnt st up sheets for Rubber Tires from British Championship)

Bye Bye

Is this on the rear hub side or the diff side?

see the manual,Page 18.;BAG J;STEP 3
There is a 4x8mm screw #126408
Use it to adjust the downstop(droop)

I thought I knew your problem already from your previous posts. You are using mugen whites (1.9 ) in the front and team magic orange in the rear or 1.7. Also shock oil at 35 all around ,right?

Well,the problem should be the rear spring is too hard. The orange one is 1.8 and the blue is 1.7. You need to know the TM Optional Spring has only 5 loops. The Mugen or Serpent Spring has 7 loops. Less loops means more hard if they are the same diameter. So you better use the same brand's spring in the front and the rear if you believe the number.

I would suggest you to try TM's 1.4 in both of the front and the reat first. It is equal to Mugen's 1.6(close)

I usual use Serpent yellow short spring in front and TM's 1.4 in rear. Cold weather use Serpent 30wt,hot weather use 35wt. FYI...
