hey, thanks blanks596

any change to springs and shock oil?

Most of the MTX-4 screws are 3mm. If the g4s uses 3mm screws they should be the same.

ok, this past weekend I tried something new during a somewhat important race and failed miserably. I used a front spool and my lap times decreased by a whole second compared to my oneway. The car felt a bit easier to control as it had better braking and I had tremendous on power steering through the sweepers, but lap times suffered. I've been practicing with the spool for approximately 5 days and it definitely requires different driving habits (more on throttle) so I was wondering if anyone could suggest a general set up for the spool. So far I've found this set up to be ok, but like I said, lap times suffered.

If any i would only use them on the top of the car you want to keep the center of gravity as low possible by removing weight from the lower have of the car you could raise the center of gravity. I still believe steel screws are stronger. titatanium is more brittle prone to snap rather than just bend. IMO not worth the trouble of replacing.
