Thanks Dennis for the affirmation.

Looks like that was some hit!! The individual part numbers for the pieces are coming but as in your case very slowly. Hoping they will be available next week so others won't be in same position.

And the result has been the following ...



I was finish the heat but with a very unstable car. I believe that the alloy piece is too fragile and it bends with facility. I have been unbind it but I think that the material lost its rigidity.

In addition I donīt find as spare part and will be necessary to buy again the complete kit.

Best regards.
that is why I suggest a Nylon one-piece top, it is more impact resistant, durable and cheap to replace.
I am crash test master, i know what a crash can do.

That is a bad crash and yes, it seems that part of the upper deck support is not strong. If you had the plastic top support, either the hub or upper/lower arm would have broke, which would have been good because those are easier and cheaper to replace.

I'll stick with the plastic for now.

Default Say it isn't so!!!

I just got off of the phone with my LHS and was told my parts may or may not be coming from Team Phenix due to Team Magic switching to Trinity for distribution. I'm not a happy camper. I like the personal touch from Motorman, and 25 years in R/C tells me that when certain large companies get their hands on distribution of rc products, prices go up and supply goes down. I would not have purchased a G4S had Trinity been the distributor 2 months ago.

Default rollbar replacement

G4S's rollbar is too low and can't protect engine in the crash..

so i changed G4S rollbar by V-ONE RRR rollbar (kawahara option part)

Very dissapointing but not surprising.
Motorman put them on the map and this is what happens but we dont know reasons behind it.Maybe otorman can give hes response.

Default G4S rear upper arm

i replaced G4S rear upper arm to V-ONE RRR's part (bearing include ver)

for smooth arm moving and easy to change rear camber.

If G4S gonna be distributed by Trinity again, I will sell mine and get a MTX-4 ASAP. that is for real.
I had the first G4 under trinity. I sell it 2 month after my crash. NO PARTS SUPPLY at all

Trinity SUCKS
