Default Missing part

I picked up my G4S Friday evening, and have finished assembly. Only one problem . My kit has a defective part, part #502153 (rear outdrive?). Mine looks fine, I even put it in place without noticing it ISN'T THREADED. I didn't notice until I was trying to put the wheel nut on.

Is this something Motorman can send me to expedite the process, or do I have to go through LHS? I would like to get it asap so I can get it on the setup board, and break the new engine in. I hope to get in my first onroad race next weekend.

nitro the sway bar was custom made and the CF brace was modified I presume to get more steering. In europe they don't spray the tracks so those guys are always looking for more steering. The chassis is very suseptable to being bent that way. I can almost gurantee it.

Motorman, email sent. I gotta say, I think that overall this kit was my favorite to put together ever. The fit and finish is awesome. I'm used to having to work to get the suspension arms/hinge pins ect. in good shape.

i havent run my g4s, but i saw that the gap between the brake disc and engine is super small.

Your right it is close, but i have never had it actually touch the engine. With regards to the brakes i do recommend using a pen spring between the pads about 5mm in length to push the pads of the disc so it doesn't drag and slow you down...Hope this helps

No, K factory brake disc is same size as original.

If you want to opt for K factory brake plates, its up to you. The pads come with springs to seperate the plates just like in real cars.

There is nothing you can do with the disc being too close to engine. Don't worry, it wont touch, I have raced it two times.

yes, indeed they are very very close. my frenz OS was hit a bit, about 0.5mm, but it wouldn't damage ur engine. so dun worry too much. but on the other hand, d other frenz using nova, hehe, its even worse, slightly deeper cuts.
