i got my type s at rctech in daly city, cali which was one of the first dealers to order from yokomo. Good thing i only live like 10 min drive away from there. They currently dont have any in stock tho. As for the car racing against the current top cars. It's a very nice handling car. But a lot has to do with the drivers skill to use the car to its top performance. I've raced a ntc3, v one rr , and many other cars, and by my setup i have beaten them and lost to them in some cases. The GT-4 has a good history of top finishes and now i think it can still be one of the top cars. Price wise to me i think the Gt4 cost less too, compared to the top name like serpent for their new 705.

Default Im Back on Full Solid !!!! WOOOOWW !!!

Guys, as some of you may know, i ended about a month and a half my "full solid configuration" and went to front solid and rear diff configuration.

Now, this last weekend i participated on a race (2nd one in Brasil). The track was medium size, 75% high speed 25% twisty layout with a lot of grip. The format was a 15 minutes of classification and 30 minutes final. I got classified on the 6th place and during the waiting for the main i was discussing about full solid configuration with a guy (MTX3) and he dont believe that its a fast setup (well, he said fast but with too little control for his style of driving).

Well, the thing is that, I DONT KNOW WHY (well, i know, just selfish pride), i took my Yokomo and changed the rear diff for a solid axle, and maintained the side plastic pulleys.

The bottom line its .... I ENDED ON THE SECOND PLACE !!!! ... WOOOOHOOOO !!! ... the first place was a MTX3 (the guy i was talking to prior the race), the third another MTX3 and the 4th and 5th was NTC3 cars. Now the guy with the MTX3 want to try full solid configuration too. BTW, we are running here with rubber tires 24mm.

My friends, IM VERY HAPPY, since i changed to front solid and rear diff im having more time to get practice and my driving its better and now back to full solid i think i re-feel more comfortable with this fast-and-furious setup.

SO ... IM HOOKED UP AGAIN on the full solid setup, i think i have now what i needed, more "hands" due to more practice time.

Modellor, you were right, the best was to go back to full solid setup.

Note : I just have 1 thing to check. Even when its not annoying and i can race with the car as is, im feeling a little push to the right during first acceleration and again a little push to the right when the second gear kicks inn (im using the shoe-type 2 speed kit). The setup have 1 Toe out in front, 1 Camber in front, 2.5 Camber on the rears and 1.5 Toe in on the fronts. Front gray (almost white) springs and rear white springs. Side pulleys are stock plastics. This last weekend i were running with Sorex 32's front and rear during the morning and Sorex 40 front and rear the rest of the day and during the finals.

Thanks for your attention guys !!

I don't think they have any info on the GT-4W anymore. It's basically the plain vanilla, base model version of all the other GT-4s you see. No hopups, no fancy stuff. Just the car. Still a good car.

Sure it is. The only difference is that the newer versions come with all the hopups. You can customize your car with whatever you want. They're all the same cars and can share all the same parts.

It is upgradable to the latest version and beyond that still with the current crop of aftermarket manufactures taking the game to higher levels.

No actual upgrade kit available. Just buy the parts separate and put them on .

Sell your car and get a GT4S. It is much more cost effective this way.

Still not worth unless you don't plan on upgrading it to GT4S specs. $100 is a great deal though if you plan on leaving it stock.

The GT4S already includes pricey upgrades like a 7075 chassis, belt tensioner, front swaybar, front one way, Centax clutch, shoe type 2 speed, and threaded shocks. Plus a bunch of more upgrades too.
