We sure need a tool for adjusting the tension nut.

Itchy B:

I bought something like that from The Border hobbies a few years ago and it didn't fit the G4. It did however fit onto a R40 i borrowed for a while.

hey Bundy, i too used the stock collet that came with the clutch. i think it might have damaged the thread on the crank. i put the picco collet on and used loctite on the thread, it hasnt come loose again. the problem was the flywheel would come loose, and the clutch nut was backing itself off, then the clutch would stick on, till it was constantly locked on. i havent had any probs since i changed the collet. funny that !

Come to think of it ,I had the same problem with collet but I put a washer behind my collet and flywheel tightened up fine.

I have rebuilt the shocks with the new Special Shock Bladders (Blue) and they have made the shocks more consistent. Only hope it does blow up like the old ones

Car Breaker: Trust Serpent to have something like that, they always seem to have the best support for their products if it be there great website (MyTSN) or tools they release for their cars like this

i dont think the shocks blow up. what happens is the shock bladders turn inside (push the bladders in opposite direction) and they dont rebound to original state. team magic now has new shock bladders, this is what Bundy bear has used in his shocks, to prevent this from happening. but also too this is caused by the piston traveling too far and hitting the bladders. im awaiting my new blue shock bladders to try for this weekend. Thanks to Sam at Raceday Hobbies

The new bladders work much better then the old ones. More than anyhting I think the real problem with the kit bladders is the material, its just didn't have enough rubber in it.
