it does not mean track width.

rear sus arm fixed point has two point.

inside point means long sus arm effect like RRR, NT1

outside point means short sus arm effect like MTX-3

as long as sus arm.. activity is good.

But the machine can suffer from traction roll in high grip


i guess long sus arm effect is good for low grip

short sus arm effect is good for high grip.

With all these changes, upgrading from a G4 or G4S to the G4+ seems like it might be costly, almost to the point of it making more sense just to buy the new car. Any thoughts on this?

BTW.. How long do you think it will take to sell 999 G4+es anyway? 12 months? That seems like the product development life cycle of these G4 versions. This "Limited Edition" thing seems more like a marketing gimmick more than anything else.

Good points rmdhawaii.
Well i hope not as part of the marketing hype/sales pitch/attraction behind the G4/s etc has been the fact that the car has and will be going through a evolution with out really redesigning everything from the ground up.
Hence why some have asked if there will be a upgrade kit.
So if you have a G4 Mongoose you could buy teh + upgrade kit instead of the S.Would be silly if you had to buy it the other way around ,rather just buy the kit.
But as i said before ,sure we will find out from TM shortly.

Interesting. So your thinking Razzor is the G$ Mongoose will be able to go from bone stock to the G4S+? Cool. Does anyone know when this option will be available? Also, the unnamed model on the TM splash page still seems ominous. Like there is a G5 waiting in the wings.

We waiting to find out if that will be the case.
A G4 can be upgraded to a G4S with a kit that can be purchased so we would like the same for the G4S to be upgraded to a G4+ if possible

It's not G4S+, it's just G4+. IMO, G4+ is the G5, but TM can call it whatever they want.

G4 to G4S conversion kit is $189. I would imagine that a conversion kit to G4+ from either platform would cost just as much, if not more.

I wish Dennis was still involved with TM, then we would get the info straight from the source instead of SWAGing it.

You would imagine the G4+ would come standard with the ED trans as well. So I think upgrading from the Mongoose would not be very cost effective. I could be wrong but when you consider that you would need the G4S upgrade kit, the UFO clutch the ED trans, suspension arms, rear sway bar, rear bulkheads, shocks and speed shot front end to make a mongoose into a G4+, what part of the mongoose have you got left?

try on here Mark. look back a page.

another thing to consider about the G4+, is that many people are already running ED trans, Speedshot front , new style rear hubs. and it looks like the 4 mm chassis. so the G4+ would be all the upgrades in 1 car, plus some very good changes and ideas. so for one to upgrade their current car to a + , maybe looking at arms, bulkheads and shocks. but more of an idea when everyone has more info
