There is no online manual for the G4S.
TM site has the manual for older G4.
Only G4S relevant downloads are the exploded view pdf and parts list.

Thanks for trying.

Team Magic needs to clean up their site - especially when it comes to the G4S. The information is spread all over the place - and I do mean all over. IMO, they're not helping sales if people can't find information on the car or think there is a limited amount of information posted at the site. That is what I thought at first until I started clicking on everything G4S related. Just my 2 cents..

have to agree with you.
Also they have been concentrating on the M1-B buggy so much lately too.

They have a new G4s site but nothing on it that isnt known.

Thanks razzor

Yeah, I saw that site. While I was there, I came across this little gem. Do you think that this is the right approach to take? I mean, look at Team XRAY - are they disrespecting the NT1 with all those top drivers? I don't think so. I think they are generating sales!

rmdhawaii , thats been there idea and they leave sponsorship etc for the distributors to do.
I personally dont think its the right way but cant complain we have a decent support base going here on RCtech.
The eurochamps win and results from the worlds hasnt really helped much with exposure and the car is still looked at as a bigboy wannabe.
The issue with Dennis Richey and Trinity also hasnt helped but hey im running the car for the long run
Been scoping and drooling about the G4 from its debut.
Has to be the best looking car out there

Oh, I see. But it would be good to have one or two top guys traveling the world driving at different tracks and showing everyone that the car has the potential to beat any car out there. Having the distributors sponsor guys is okay I guess, but that adds to their overhead which in turn needs to be charged to someone -> dealers -> racers.

I think the win under wet conditions did not count in some people's eyes - and at the worlds... How did the G4 do?

I never saw a G4 in any of our stores and you don't see a 720 either. We have XRAY dealers, but they don't really stock XRAY on the shelves. One store has 1-2 kits on the shelf, but no parts out on display. IMO, store owners want to stock inventory that they know is going to move. It's really kind of funny how all of this works. I'm still trying to understand it better.

Thanks for the response

It is the wrong ? way what they do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
here in germany there is no TM team Driver and in the german Ntas only 5 G4S under the mugens Kyoshos Xrays and Serpents..................
Here is no helping hand and no dealer at the Track for the G4!!!!!!!!
This is not the way to win new drivers for the car.......!!!!!

We will see............so i will look for an other car next Year.......

g4-racing.de i agree and feel for you bud.
Would be wrong to lose another G4s driver to another brand

I hope and think that TM needs to look at this especially if they want to keep the piece of the pie thay have as new brands are popping up soon too.
If they want to better or even retain the interest they have know they will have to look at sponsored drivers.

There is talk of Motonica releasing a 200mm soon and if Dario Balestri is running there 1/8 chassis we might be losing him too.
There is talk of a few other brands coming in to the 200mm touring class.
Then there is the TM 1/8 car they are developing and with out top drivers how are they going battle getting sales as 1/8 is hard class to break into.

Time will tell and I hope for the best

Dude, no prob!!! Maybe we could shoot for the August race. Dude, that's a ways off so we can play it by ear. But in the meantime, I will do some research on hotels and what not. Maybe by then we can get a few other guys on here to go to that race as well. It would be a blast! Talk with you soon bro! Later.

G4S only qualified 2nd at the worlds (same 'lucky' guy that won the Euro's).

I agree with the point though - If TM raised the profile there would be better sales and support. The only way to raise the profile in the long run is to have some guns driving and winning with the car. Since the guns currently get paid to drive some other brand, there won't be any guns running the car for free or at their own expense.

I think the car obviously has the right stuff since it is doing OK in sales even though it doesn't have guns driving it. I don't think there is another car on the market at the moment that I could be faster with (and no, XRAY is not on the market yet). For average Joe's like us, the car is a lot easier to find a sweet spot with than some of the others.

Just my 2c.

i changed to G4S from V-ONE RRR about 6 month ago.

after i got G4S, i always won a prize(1,2,3), and no retire and.. faster in lap time.

most of car suffered by overgrip, turn upside down in 2006 IFMAR.

But G4S is not turn upside down. (because low level center structure)

of course i think TM did not marketing well.

But TM's CAR had mysterious attraction .


this is my RC career from 2004.

i started RC in 2003... But i had not won a prize in 2003
