hey mr. sam
i'll break in your car for you if you'd like
there's been some people looking to start to race nitro but the price to start is giving them a heart attack. scott from srs told me also that whenever he tells them about all the stuff needed to get started (kit cost, motor, etc.), they kindof walk away or go electric instead. maybe you should come out and race and show them the RTR or the S and let them know that there's actually a 'race car' that can be affordable out there that is not named "Duratrax"

Scotts sales pitch to potential gas racers is... nitro is expensive... but looky here at this electric!!!! Oh Well!

Hope to see ya friday!

We will have it as soon as Phenix Distributing gets it in. It is priced just about what Dennis said it would. Obviously Raceday's price will be lower than site pricing.

I also thought for $180.00 more one can get the G4S with all the other upgrades as well ( UFO Clutch to name one) and use the present G4 as a parts backup? Make sense to any one else??? Help me here I am Italian so the lord knows I need help!

you are absolutely right , it will be nice to have all the upgrade with G4S.
the only problem is : not everyone can squeeze out USD400 is short period of time ,
at least I can't , I am low on cash and I freeze my bank account because the info was stolen and that guy was using my card info to shop arround before I freeze it

look great the extension wire type on/off is much better then using a switch, I hate to do wiring leave that for PG&E or SBC ,
I wonder how strong is the steering system mounting on teh plastic bracket, any try broke it before?
how about the price? and most importantly, when will it be available in US

I wonder whne 3racing will come out an updated G4S 4mm chassis after I get the kit and crash it

we hit some stuff hard enough at FT Myers to actually bend the tie rods and there was no damage to the steering servo saver or to the servo. 4 guys broke less than 5 parts all week while we were at FT myers and that place has STEEL BOARDS!! Nuff Said. This thing is tough. And we weighed one today and it weighs like 1745 with the body on ready to run no fuel. I was suprised it looks heavier than that. ROAR min is 1725.

car breaker,
you may not need a 4mm chassis, the car is a lot stiffer, thanks to better radio plate/mounting positions. so it doesnt tweak at all, i have crashed tested this and havent managed to tweak my car once yet.

that sound great, G4 is one of the best touring car of crash test reviewed by many magazines, and now it is even taugher, probably if there is a TMG5, it will be nuclear weapon proof

well, I felt threaten for my name as "car breaker" if I convert or getting a G4S

We are happy to announce that 235 MM 2WD World Champion Brian Berry (former serpent team driver)will be driving a G4S for Phenix Distributing/Team Magic for 2006. Brian was winner of the last 235MM worlds ever run, 5 time midwest series 1/8th scale champion and A main finalist at the 200 MM sedan nationals in toledo and an A main finalist in 1/8th at the on road nationals at Kissemme last year.(these are but a few of his many accompolishments) Brian has functioned as the Midwest series director the last few years and we think he will add a valuable dimension to Phenix and Team Magic this year. Welcome aboard Brian and Dave.
