Does the Mugen sway bar work well better in dusty conditions or on high traction? I've been racing without any rear sway bar in high traction conditions.

FYI - My second daughter was born April 19. She and her older sister are gonna keep me away from the tracks for a couple months, then I'll start racing again.

Hi Don, and congrats. 2 girls hey just like me, and trust me it will be longer than acouple of months they will keep you from the tracks.
just kidding, hope your racing again soon.

Hi All,

Congratulations to Paul Coleman, Sam and Darren D. on having a good weekend.
Excelent job Paul did on getting to the A main ! Outstanding !

Sully.......if you still nead a manual I have two.....for some reason They are not brand new (2 or 3 months old) but you are welcome to one. Drop me a pm if your interested.

Don (dnitro) .......... Congratulations are having a baby girl ! I had a baby boy in Jan 07. Another girl to melt your heart!

On the rear roll bar.................. I would try running the TM one. It really does help to stabilize the car at the rear. You'll also find the car will have a little more steering.......the car will rotate alot better.
The reason why some have been using the Mugen rear bar is because the TM blade, even when set to 90 degrees (Blade straight up/down) it is still quite soft. The mugen bar is stiffer. (Roughly, the 2.0mm Mugen bar is about equel to the TM blade at 90 degrees).......so the options of 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5mm are all (obviously) stiffer.

Keep your eyes peeled as TM are, I believe, working on a new stiffer rear bar!

Regards to all.

Menace

I just ordered my GS4!!! Thanks Sam!!
Got one more question. Does the ED transmission accept a front diff on the pully? Our local track is very tight so majority of the guys run all diffs in front of their Mugens and Kyoshos. Just want to make sure before i order it.

Hey Neesh............ welcome to the family.
The ED trans system is a great upgrade for the G4 and a deffinate improvement on the stock transmission.
In the kit you will get a new front oneway/spool with the new 30 tooth pulley on. Similar to the axle supplied in the G4s kit.

If you want to run a diff' you can get just the front 30 tooth pulley on it's own.
K14122-9

Is the part number. Just ask Sam. He's got EVERYTHING you nead !

mtx-4 and g4s are both great cars, but the g4s does come with a bit extra parts stock that you need to buy extra if you want on the mtx-4
