i have just ordered a g4s just wanted to see if you could tell me what the durability of these cars is like, they obviously have the performance but being an 1/8 buggy racer i tend to be a little hard on the gear, im currently running a v-one rr evo which has seen some big hits and drove a way its bullet proof but parts are hrd to come by so now i am looking forward to being a magic driver just nervous about strength

It's a ver ydurable car. No worries there.
I'm not saying it will never break but I would say it's as durable as your old rr.

The parts are now alot easier to get hold of too.

Where are you from?

schurcr, the stock gearing is 16/21 pinions on the ED.
For a start id suggest getting a set of pinions and a 521st gear spur as Bm suggested but before changing the gearing try the the stock gearing so you have a point of reference.
Note the clutch would also effect the feel and punch out of corners.

Welcome to our family and feel free to ask any questions and share your experience and findings with us.

There very good. I like them.
They have a very slightly larger rim to them, which helps with tire distorsion a little. They also glue the rubber on really well and I've never had a problem with the glueing on them.

They seam prity durable too and not too pricey.

Hi BimmerDriver,
Here in the U.S since Team Magic America was launched, we are signing up dealers all over the country. This is making Team Magic products more available at least in the U.S.

These dealers have not only Team Magic products in store, but also a long list of high quality lines.

Where are you from BimmerDriver?

BM,

I sent you a PM about two months ago regarding local hobby shops in my area that may want to become TM dealers. Did you ever get it? If not I can send again.

Thanks
Don

Hey Don,
How are you doing?
I didn't get that pm you spoke of.

If you can try re-sending that would be great. Thankyou!

How are you and the G4 getting on these days?
