yes you will have to use a hitec horn or one of the alumunium horns made by dynamite or the like.

And is the front drive suppose to be so undergeared?Back tires rotate almost 2 turns to the fronts 1. 1.75 to 1 back to front.Bought the car used just don't seem right to me any replies would be greatly appreciated

sounds like the two side pulleys are swapped. the rear one next to the engine should be a 19 tooth and the larger one goes in front. also check to make sure the brake is not binding or the clutch

It was the clutch shoes on the 2speed were stuck.2 speed clutch bell is too small for clutch shoes.Car came with assortment of different gears and extras.new gears fit on new clutchbell but not on the one that fit the shoes.There is such a small difference between the two bells can't be 1mm. between the two did the manufacture change something or what?got everything working now but was wondering if the new bell needs smaller shoes?Tanks for your solutions.

Motorman- Are you gonna have any of the new steering bell cranks at the GLC and if so will you have extras?

I would be very interested in trying one.

Default Spares?

I am new to the G4/Mongoose, and nitro. This is my first nitro car.

What should I have on hand for spares on a typical race day, for both the car and engine? (R3)
I have already broken a universal, (about 4 tanks through the car so far) so will be picking up the V2 universals before I get out again.

Currently the car is stock.

Thanks
