Sorry about the spelling but you get the point !!!!!

I would hope that this link will allow everyone that is going to race the Rd Logics G-4 the ability to understand the car and share some racing tips that the average Joe can't figure out.
and allow everyone to make the car a major contributor to the rc racing scene with a vengeance !!!

K1482
Mongoose Hard Coated 18T Side Pulley,
K1483
Mongoose Hard Coated 18T Brake Pulley
setup which causes alot of slack in the rear drive belt.

If you invert the tensioner and take off about half of the aluminum material on the otbd side and then countersink the inbd brake shoe and install a countersunk screw it will allow just enough clearance to allow the whole operation to work effectively.

One major tip on the battrery mount so hopefully it won't happen to others.
use some washers the orginal G4 had some slack on the top deck screws that mount to the battery brace & in some instances would slip thru & guess what your car would runaway LOL but it is not funny when it happened to me pissed me off that i bought a 710 & sold my G4 even though it handled awesome thru any chicane.
ybslow nice pics.
but iwbfast lol

Default Servos?

What servos do you guys recommend for teh mongoose? Are the Air94360 wth the heatsink overkill for a nitro sedan?

There weren't any Mongoose cars in the A main. The guys from RD Logics were all super cool (The company rep pitted next to me, he's a cool guy, see his car in action below)




That's a nice chassis shot!

I tell ya, the car had the coolest looking belts I've ever seen on a nitro car! Very free-rolling too!

I have not seen anyone using the ball diff instead of the gear diff most guys who don't like to run a one way use the ball diff instead.
