thanks, I was sorta also talking about the crash kit that was on some sites before that included all the a-arms , hub cariers and things like that and sold for like $50 that around anymore?

Also I have 1 last question, I cant change this now since the car is bought but I need to know.

the Mongoose has the worst problem with servos, the steering one was the worse, it would hit the fuel tank, or the linkage would hit the front bulk heads, was the servo layout fixed on the g4s or does it still have the same servo mounting issues.

If you look at the GRP Tires thread the "K" boys have hijacked the thread and that is what most are giving a go instead of the GRP's and price seems to good also.

Good luck on your purchase!

Revo523 it looks like you been having fun already
Sweet ride.

Rc evolution ,good choice on the S
U wont be dissapointed and you have a donor car as all suspension parts are interchangeable on the mongoose and S.
For the perimeter kit try and give Motorman a pm or email as they are clearing stock.Might have all you need at a bargain price maybe even the G4S upgrade kit for the Mongoose.

Enjoy and welcome to the family

The G4s has the same servo configuration, ie. tow lay-down servo's, but it has a new layout which has enabled TM to give a little more room for the mounting of servo's.

I know how you feel rc as I ran both the G4E and mongoose. But with the 'S' the car's whole layout is 100% improved.

But hey, you can still get the mongoose to work, and well.
TM also does an upgrade kit which upgrades the mongoose into the 'S'. The car would not end up with everything the 'S' comes with, but the kit does supply you with all the important parts.
