Default Team Magic G4 Family--The Joy of Driving

You may know that Team Magic is going to release two new G4. One is Le Mans G4 & the other is G4 S. I believe there will be more drivers enjoy driving the G4.

Very true.. Nickko, long time no hear from... I have a few questions... The current G4/Mongoose uses S-Class gears and the material of the spur gears were prone to stripping when using the 25 tooth clutch gear... Has this problem been addressed with the up coming car??? The material used in the S-Class spur gears needs to be alot more duriable... Two... Will the new car have a bell crank steering system??? Some are posting that it will.... One last thing, will we be able to adjust the front roll-center in the new G4S??? Nice to see you posting here Nickko and keeping us informed...

Is the new G4 S an evolution of the current G4 EVO or a completly new car?
Will there be any parts interchangable with the TM G4 EVO?

Good to see you here, so we have inside information.

hope this help ...

Your car doesn't have the "S" class transmission system, yours has the previous standard system. Will mail you about it.

Default Radio Plate

Nick Ko,
Looks like the upcoming S version will share most of the Evo model, will we expect an upgrade for radio plate only? like we want the battery on the side and the receiver underneath, as of now im looking at the prototype the side plates are shorter to accomodate the battery and the throttle servo to move few millimeters backwards to gain room so i was i thinkin if we want to change the radio plate we will replace the side brace or possibly the chassy as well due to placement of mounting screws.I hope there will be a special radio plate for evo versions that dont require multiple parts to purchase

Pato doesn't have the S class but he is right on what he is saying, I have been using S class gears for long time and I never stripped one of them.

We will have upgrade kit for the current G4 racers. We think it's good to drive a car for a longer time & you can still make the car very competitive. That's why the G4 has the most items available for you to tune the car.

Anytime is a good time to buy a G4.

Thanks Nickko,

I look forward building the car and racing it. Racing will have to wait a bit because the season just ended and the wetter in The Netherlands isn't to good from November till March.
