Good for you! The freezer trick help me out many times on 1/8th buggy pipes. I think Nova pipes bend easier than some others, but the ice trick can usually salvage them....


I'm getting ready to paint a couple of bodies for next season. I'm no pro, but I like them to look decent. I was considering trying to do a "pro" type job with all the lines and colors, but I was also thinking of just keeping what I ended with. Tell me what you think of the one pictured. Excuse the battle wounds . It was an easy tape job, that is repeatable, and it stood out pretty good on the track.

Reading through this forum most of the people say that the holes in the pistons needs to be drilled to 1.2 -1.3 mm

I first assemble my cars shocks with the pistons on standard 1mm holes.

now afer a few runs and test i decided to drill the pistons.

I left the pistons on the shaft with the metal washer underneath it. Firstly i took it to 1.1mm and noticed that the bit is is touching the washer.

My question now is if you take the holes to 1.2 or 1.3 does it realy help with the washer closing the hole for that 0.1 or 0.2 mm.

or am i to technical on this?
You are right. Some of the washers they supply for the shock building are slightly larger and you do have to watch this.
Either replace with thin section types that will not foul the larger holes or turn the one's you have down.
I turned mine down. I run with 1.3mm holes in mine.

Agree with you. I went through like 3 Nova pipes and they all dent or bend easily. I waste so much money on them until I switch to Skyline. even with strong crash all I bent is a little on the header and the pipe is never dent what so ever. the same crush will mean a new pipe set for Nova. Nova should reconsider how they make their pipe.

Raced my virgin G4S at a local race here in Sydney on the weekend. The race is a yearly event called the Sydney Grand Prix. Anyway my car and motor went quite well, i qualified 9th, and finished 6th in the 30min final. (not bad for an electric racer lol ).

I was running harder than optimal from tire for the final, so next meeting ill be exploring softer fronts and ill run the speedshot front end for some roll adjustment. The car was faultless all weekend, no damage, no misbehaving.

The motor was a Team Orion WAPS REV .12, with the updated carby, i ran the standard G4S clutch with the Black TM spring & ED transmission.

Glad it worked well for you that is a very good result!

Now for the second time make sure that the plug in the stinger is not in tight at all! You need to allow some pressure to release before all the water freezes!

My humble apologise to Novarossi for causing them to loose a sale!

Congrats' on a successful inaugural run with the G4s.
Not too sure if my spelling is right there but hey-ho...

I'm interested.....how did you find setting-up the G4s Nitro car in comparison to setting up an electric car?
I'm just the oposite.......I run 95% nitro and only this year have I even ran an electric car....mt TC4 (factory)....in a race?!!
