I just picked up a GPX4 RTR. I'm having trouble getting the 4 AA's to fit in the battery box. The batteries themselves, fit fine, but the connecter between the pack and the switch stops everything from sitting in there right without bulging in one direction or the other. Someone got any ideas on how to make it fit right?

yes the radio and battery box design on the RTR is awfull. I had to do some major dremel work to make everything fit. a five cell hump pack fits better and lasts longer so I suggest you pick one up.

That's next on the list, plus I need to get one for my hyper 7 as well.

Also, can someone run me through how to adjust the clutch, I couldn't find anything in the manual about it.

there is a little hole on the clutch bell that allows you to stick a allen wrench in to tighten or loosen the clutch spring. I have mine set about flush on a mt-12

I found the hole in the clutch bell but there wasn't a screw or similar in there.

After years of loyal service (and good performance ), i laid my NTC3 FT to rest and ordered a GPX4 Pro.

One of the fine things about the NTC3 was that Team Associated's Set-ups were available online and they always proved to be a good starting point to find the perfect setup.
My question : are (Team) setups for the GPX4 available online somewhere and where can I find a blanc setup sheet ?

Default Hobao or Ofna

Hi to all. New guy to the forum and 1/10 onroad. My buddy and I are looking to try some 1/10th onroad after having 1/8th buggies, boats, planes, ect since '93. We are fans of Ofna/Hobao after having some of their buggies.

My question is...is the Gpx4 Pro from OFNA substantially different from the one we can get from Hong kong? The only diff I can see is the lack of a pipe from Hong Kong. Though it seems for the price diff there may be more...

Please advise....We are anxiously waiting to order.

thanks

The GPX4 from Ofna came with all the aluminum parts and a pipe. I posted some pics of my car earlier in this thread. I think the one in Hong Kong comes with plastic supports and limited graphite, not sure though. This car is great you will love it. Very easy to setup and the drivability is exceptional. Good luck.
