Very true, I propably would have already ordered the car, but I heard that Yokomo Japan has been testing with a new one, I just dont want it to get outdated quickly..

Chris and I will be in the Fukuyama booth at the Toys 4 Tots race in La Mirada, dont know if you're in the area at all, but if you make the race, drop by and say hi.

I live in lahabra so it's pretty close by but i'm not sure if
i'm racing there or crystal park so i'll try to pass by if i can.
I'm actually gonna get started on electric again so i can get
more practice with different cars. I'll probably get the mr4bc
if you guys get a 4wd mod class going at socal.

I dont have the nitro car yet, so no need for crystal park for me, electric just seems boring there...

Ummm, smoothness of a 3 belt drive train car can easily be attained on any car when you have good belts that are not tight and good belts that have very little rolling friction. Does Kyosho SP belts come into mind? They are used on Josh Cyrul's G4.

Of all the 3 belts, I personally find that the center long belt plays the most part of getting the drivetrain to be free rolling.

I guess the GT4 comes with very good sets of belts and long lasting too which I believe they are.

It's definately good to know that the good belts are included with the car, one less thing I need to worry about buying...

After talking to a friend, I picked up a GT4 today

For the rear tires, do I need to get a 0 or 2 offset rim? 30mm.

You mentioned earlier that you had a friend who gave you a lot of tips and that led you to getting the GT4. Why don't you ask those questions to him instead? Perhaps he knows the answers.

Finally im running on foams downhere ... i bought front and rears 26mm and 30mm from ellegi and from Jaco (0 offset) ... all i did on the rears was to tight one and half round the pivot balls (maintaining the setup), add a shim between the hex hub and the wheel and i ended with a 199,8 rear width setup and no rub at all !!! ...

cya !
