I thing that your tires are too big, did you true them? they should be 60 mm.

look at the plate near the spur gears see how it is broken.

what do you think? both carbon plates for the mongoose by 3racing come out to $23, both kfactory plates come out to $29
you think quality is similar
BTW the kfactory RD wants $60 for >_<

hey

people! go to RCMART they have over 500 parts for the g4

If not...then I guess I'll have to start searching to see if there are any Kyosho V1 universal pieces that will work.
I have used Mugen rear universal pieces to rebuild mine. The swing axel part works fine. the whole unit works if you use there hex wheel hubs also.

I recommend you to don't waste money & time on something that you are not sure if will work. I think call RD and order you parts is better.
