With out the "retailers" we couldn't talk about how our cars run because we wouldn't have them. If I choose to talk about Sam and his GREAT service for helping me with my racing career or racing enjoyment, then I will. If people don't like it then just kiss my ass. We are all here to help each other, and this is just another form of help. I've heard too many people ask if company X is a good source to purchase from. So yes this info is VERY relevant, and by the way...SAM you do kick ASS with RACEDAY HOBBIES!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, i couldnt have said it better myself. i am very sorry for the confusion i have set. i agree it is the place for things like this to be said. but i suppose i was trying to save others from the wrath to follow. but go ahead and say it if you wish. Sam rocks, Racedays Rock, and the G4S rocks.

Hey this Italian boy will say Merry Christmas all he wants !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your support, I understand what Patto was trying to say, but a dealer hearing nice words about him and his company is never a bad thing However this forum is about the G4S so I understand.

Gosh looked at my last post and obviously trying to take an order over the phone and writing a post is something this old boy can't do anymore!

Tires and rims. If the rubber is GRP then the rubber should be of good and consistent quality. I find that rims make a difference in how firm they are. Some rims are so weak they will break on a glancing blow. This also means they will bend when that cars turns off that straight and other fast turns. I always like a firm rim like the Serpent Jaco and any others of that quality. I like GQ's because their rim is one step above. The rim is really solid and excellent on high traction tracks. The other difference is how well they are glued. Perimeter gluing only for on roads will get the tire chunking and not feel consistent. Full wheel gluing to me is the best. I believe most or all 1/8th tires are fully glued. I think 1.10th should be the same.
Once again my 2 cents

Maybe I better finance that car!!!! LOL That is a very cool offer by the way!

And yes Patto, look who sponsors you dude!!!! LOL

It is all good everyday!!!

Looking at stocking GRP in my shop ,dont want to stock the wrong items.
I think besides Mugen rims, all others have the same offset (1/10)

Jaco make their nitro shoes in a 2mm ofset rim as well. this was the only rim i could use with my old Yokomo GT-4. the mugen offset for the rear wasnt big enough to fit the yokomo. so there are others out there with an offset

This is to everyone that reads this thread, I owe this guy, Pattojnr, a huge appology for misunderstanding his post. I totally went off for the wrong reasons on this gentleman. So this is a "public" appology to Pattojnr. Sorry my fellow racer for my misunderstanding and ignorance to what you were trying to get accross on your post. Like I said earlier, I was in a bad mood and took it out inproperly. I hope you can forgive me for having my head planted firmly up my ass earlier this morning. Thanks everyone for hearing me out.

Yeah sick man, my Hyper 10 if ya click the link in my signature its my drift car purley for that!!!!

I thought if i am going to get a circuit racer, why not go for GOLD

Just a quick question:

What offset rims and tyres suit best for the TMG4S

Front?

Rear?

there are so many wheels to choose from, and they got that many numbers of differant types - just dont want to purchase the wrong set!


Cheers

the car takes 0 off set rims front and rear. tire or brand choice is a personal matter, but jaco wether it be on jaco rims or serpent rims are a good choice as well. good wear and life, with the grip. the serpent rim is stronger, i have used GRP and Kawahara's and the jacos seem to have the better wear to grip ratio, but everyone has their own favourites
