Post should actually read G4 LeMans RTR and G4S RTR.

The LeMans RTR kits comes with a .15 engine ,a outlaw pipe (6mm stinger) ,Lola or VDS bodies.
The G4S RTR kit comes with .12 3 port engine (EFRA/IFMAR legal for racing) ,a EFRA/IFMAR legal pipe (5mm stinger) and a touring car body.

The G4S RTR is targeted towards a entry level ,legal spec racer.
90% of parts are the same.

The G4S competition kit has additional K factory hop ups as std ie:
UFO clutch ,rear ally bulkhead ,c/f shock towers ,ally wheel hexes ,c/f radio tray ,front oneway/spool assembly ,front universal shafts ,larger reciever battery pack ,ally front and rear stabilizer.

If I missed out anything please add.

I was just reading a few pages ago about how Kyosho parts are interchangable for TM. I was wondering, does anyone know if you can use a Kyosho rear hub carrier instead of the TM? I prefer the Kyosho method of adjusting the roll centre with shims. I know you can get this set up with the K-Factory quick change tyre setup but I don't want the quickchange tyre set up.
thanks

the quick tyre set up does have the rear hubs you want. you dont need the whole system , there will be special inserts available shortly to use the new hubs with the existing driveshafts. this doesnt require the quick release wheels to use it. hope this helps

No
The pillow balls on the rear arm are closer together on the G4.
But if you want to make up an alternative rear roll bar then the Kyosho rear arms will fit, then you could use the Kyosho V1/FW05 rear hubs.

I am fairly certain that the mugen rear hubs fit the g4s but you would be better off just getting the new k-factory rear hubs and inserts for std axles.

You could order the G4s belts as spares for now ,not sure wich belts came on the G4E/Mongoose.
Dont worry about any other items ,the ED comes with eveything needed for the transmission and will have a front oneway/spool assembly included.
Id suggest running the spool setup in front.
Good extras to get will be 15t pinion gear and some spur gears.
Look at the gear chart on the following link :
http://www.kfactoryracing.com/produc...e=G4&id=K14122
Id suggest running the car first and see were you are lacking and take it from there.
Have Fun !!

I will have the inserts for the Flash Pit hubs later this week or Monday of next week!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The inserts will be needed even when you purchase the Flash Pit set for another reason I believe. When you have the quick release hubs on the car your present setup station won't take the larger size axle. New setup stations are coming however not till late December I was told. But this is what one can do easily. Put insert in and put normal 4mm axles in hubs. Setup the car. Take inserts out, put quick release back in and you are set!!!! It's really not hard to put the quick release axles in the hubs. $4.00 inserts are better than purchasing $100 new setup stations!

The pre-paint touring car Stratus body will also be available. This is the same body that we have on the RTR.

New M1-B 1/8th Off Road Buggy will be here also in about a week. Team Magic really worked hard on getting this car ready for it's debut. I never raced an off road car before so I can't wait for it to show up. An on road guy seeing his car with all four wheels off the ground might take some getting used to
