Nice work Kodak. If you removed the blue ties you can always use some tape to hold the wires to the back of the servos. Thats what i did and it make it very neat.

Cheers, yeah the blue ZIPPIES are gone from the early pics, will use some Heat Shrink wrapp to tidy and keep all together.

Then i guess will tuck it just above the servo away from the tank etc.

It does get tight, but i am sussing all avenues to see what fits best!!!

Hey guys...

I was reading Darios worlds setup and he ran mugen purple rear spring and gray front. I have no experience with mugen springs so I was wondering if knew how they compare to TM springs?

Thanks in advance.

Also, watch for Team Trinity/Magic at the winter nats... we have a great US team for this year with myself, Mike Blackstock, Mike Dumas and Trinitys Chad Phillips. Should be a great year for the G4S after a very succesful 2006.

One thing i see you may want to do is sleeve the arial wire where it goes throught the carbon fibre top deck. This should remove any chance of glitching. I drilled mine out abit and put fuel tube through it or you could put abit of arail tube through and glue it.

i am also using mugen spring now.

mugen spring's wind number is many than G4S's

larger wind spring feel soft in early pressure.

it increase stability. and it can help comfortable and mild driving.

i think G4S normal spring is suitable for technical circuit (short circuit)

and mugen spring is suitable for loing circuit (smooth corner)

Hi Bobby

This the chart for Mugen springs

Purple 1.6mm front springs 4 coils = 25 lbs
Purple 1.6mm rear springs 5 coils = 21 lbs

Light blue 1.7mm fronts springs 4 coils = 31 lbs
Light blue 1.7mm rear springs 5 coils = 27 lbs

Dark Blue 1.75mm front springs 4 coils = 32 lbs
Dark blue 1.1.75 mm rear springs 5 coils= 27 lbs

This is the chart for TM's springs

tm gray 1.9mm 52.0 lb/in
tm orange 1.8mm 41.5 lb/in
tm blue 1.7mm 31.0 lb/in
tm aqua 1.6mm 26.0 lb/in
tm silver kit stock 26.0 lb/in
tm purple 1.5mm 20.0 lb/in
tm pink 1.4mm 17.0 lb/in
tm fuccia 1.3mm 13.5 lb/in
tm green 1.2mm 11.0 lb/in

I'm currently using Mugen's MTX-4 complete shock assemblies (4 front ones, which are the same lenght as TM's. Rear MTX-4's are longer), and I've found they give me a more consistant operation throught a hole day of racing over Tm's stock shocks.

Good luck at the Winternats for you and the whole team......
