yes they do , but they are awkward to work with , and a set of hex drivers are easier and quicker to work with.

Should have a combination of hex and phillip heads in the kit. That's why they include the basic small hex drivers.

Good call on the setup station, droop and ride height gauges.

Speaking on these tools, what do most of you guys use:
Integy or Hudy? I have yet to purchase either but it is next on the list
im using the Ofna hex drivers, they were cheap at the time. lol
TM setup station , is very nice.
i have a snap on spanner for the steering rods and camber links. it has a 5mm offset open end and a straight 4mm open end. and small.

yes pick up a set of hex drivers even if they are cheap ones , you wont regret it, I paid $20 for mine and they reach any screw and it doesnt take you 50min and a red hand to unscrew something.


on a second not, anyone know the easiest way to adjust front toe? its such a tight fit in there need nose pliers dont fit and I dont have any tool small enough for right there

Thanks!
on the battery the guys at my track get easily through the heats and then repeak for the main or just keep the pack topped up.
Well we dont run 45 min mains but its ample for the 1/2 hour mains.
My personal car i have made up a 1000mah pack with Sanyo cells.

Default G4 New Back Bracket

G4 New Back Bracket -> US $ 4.35


http://www.teammagic.com.tw/en/profr...2290&pageNum=1#


G4 NEW BAck Bracket(black color) is maybe cast in plastic.

G4S default BAck Bracket was cast in aluminum.

so we can expect G4's rear's more roll and more traction.

is it right? Daz!!

i found my old lunsford turnbuckle wrench and it fits! so problems solved.

now for a second question.

when the g4+ is out and many people have it, is it possible for who ever has it to post a little run down on what parts would be worth it for the g4s and if they fit and part number, im sure alot of people who are staying with the g4s would apreciate it.

like if a new part offers better performance or durablity.

I believe that is available on nitrokb.com. I will check for the link.

But to dovetail his question, since the chassis are stamped with the run number (1/999 or 10/999 etc) if I get frame number 325 and I wreak it, can I order a new frame with that number stamped? Probably not but no harm in asking.

well I have seen the list of parts that work and dont, but I wanted to have a list of parts that have been improved on and which are actually worth spending the extra $40 on that would be great if we had a list like that.

Nah! You're never going to be able to destroy that 4mm chassis.

You're going to have to ask TM directly on this one:

my plug was not loose...

if engine's compression is high and bearing status is very good,
then.. piston high-down activity will continue long by soft finger turning.

it's only my quess
