Default pinion durability

i think that ED aluminum pinion(also stock pinion) too fast wear away.

when i was v-one RRR user, i used K-Factory aluminum pinion. but that was strong!!

how about you think?

If you don't like the original rear link set up on the G4. Which hasn't actually changed since the first G4's came out. Then get the "flash point" rear uprights and top links. They have the pivot at the upright end on top of the upright. This takes away the anoying binding you get with the old pivot balls if you didn't get them square.
You can also make more and smaller adjustment's to rear roll centre's.

Don't think you have to buy the whole "Flash point" set up...... you can get the individual part's too.
Contact Sam at:

www.Racedayhobbies.com

He'll sort you out and have the part's to you in a "Flash".....ho-ho

I've just ordered this flash point stuff myself..........cool

Yes the older K-Factory pinion lasts almost forever, the newer is lighter but also shorter lifetime. But still at least twice better than the original Kyosho pinion

Thank's Razzor.
".......a picture paint's a thousand word's".....lol.

On the subject of using the Mugan rear roll bar on the G4.
Has anyone tried of using the front mugan bar at the rear?
It look's as though it would be stiffer. Or even the front roll bar off the 720?

Just something I was going to try.
Anyone got any thought's?

Menace.

I was thinking of a Serpent roll bar but havent had teh time to look into it ,maybe on saterday.
A buddy is the Serpent distributor ,so ill see what he has maybe laying in his spares boxes.
Mugen is hard to get here ,our club is 90% Serpent ,thats why I went with the G4S to be different.
As the saying goes "Variety is the spice of life !"
