There wont be a new G4 for some time to come.......................
There will be the new Electric car and a new 1/8th scale coming soon. Maybe your friend is getting mixed up with that one?

There are still alot of plans for "improvements" to the G4. But no new car.

Does anybody know of a website that has setups listed for the G4S? I know that there are a few in this thread but I can never seem to find them when I need to. I always come across them when I am looking for something else and then forget where I saw them.

Does anybody have any good setups for a parking lot track with low/medium traction that is more technical than flowing?

well i think im ready for the silly season
order has arrived in Adelaide, so i have gearing options and tires.
and i have some more tires coming here for the weekend after.
a new conrod for the EVO 3 and all should be good.
i have problems getting the Mega plugs here, so no i havent tried them. but the ninja plugs do work fine. they are easily accessable here. i dont think Sam had the IDM plugs yet when i placed the order. so yeah i think i have things covered. but as racing goes, anything can happen and usually will

howdy Charles, im very sure the rs300 is same size as the nomadio reciever. they do fit, but i believe they guys are trimming some plastic from the cradle. tight fit i know, but there is always the rs310 micro reciever ?

they all look ok, but the brighter the better so you can see your car clearly, no matter what it hits.

Hi Paul,

I was looking at the rs310 and even thinking of changing my gear for a dx3.

I had a bad glitch last saturday that cost me the race and i'm not sure where it came from. I was 2 laps ahead when i came in to the pits for my first fuel stop. I pulled out of the pits and in the first corner my failsafe kicked in and stayed on.
Usually the failsafe is a sign that the battery is weak. I have an superbrain charger and when i put the battery on the lead, the lcd showed 6.4v. It's the first time i use the 800mah team magic pack.
Because of the placement of the electronics, i really couldn't do anything at the track in enough time to come back in the race.
After the race, i turned the radio on and it worked for a second then the front wheels started freaking out for about 20 seconds (back and forth very quick) -- then it stopped. Back home the next day, i turned the radio on and the car worked perfect.
I'm thinking that fuel may have gotton on the sevo wires and caused the car to freak out. To not take a chance, i pulled all the wiring out, wrapped everything in shrink wrap and re-installed. At the same time i wanted to change the receiver just incase but couldn't fit the jr. I put my novak xxtra back in and I'm crossing my fingers for the next race.
