I also notice there is no diff as such for the front when u put the ed on? whats the best grease for the rear diff?
thanks
the front axle is a one way, or solid spool. there are pins to lock the front outdrives. there is also a small grub screw inside those diff cups to lock the pins in hard. if you run a solid spool up front , be sure to make use of the grub screws or you could loose a pin. as for the rear diff, 10 000 fliud is a good start. depending onthe traction available at your track. the K Factory special bonded brake pads are a good thing to have as well, they have 2 small springs to keep the pads away from the disc. prevents any binding or drag. they work well.

thats where a wish list and reality list comes to work, just title them differently works for me. not that i get anything on either list. birthdays are a good way of buying that deserved present for yourself
pitty mine has been and gone. the M1B has just made the top of the new lists.

The Turbo II pipe will be holding you back for sure. It is not usually used as a full on race pipe. I would suggest you try a Novarossi 2630 or 2601 pipe with the 5 fin short manifold. This will give you much better performance and will increase your top end significantly. With the turbo II you are probably running out of RPM rather than running out of gearing.

As Zoom says,
The pipe I think is restricting full breathing of your motor.
I would suggest the same, 2601 with either the medium (6 fin) or short (5 Fin) header.
Then see what you have on the track.
I would also say try to keep the gearing to 5 or 6 teeth....no more.
I would also get the ED Transmission. It's less arduous on the motor.

Thanks, I'll try with the 2601 with 5 fin header, and see if it gets better.

There is a belt tensioner attached to the lower chassis. Use a 1.5mm hex driver to adjust the tension.

Dude, the attached pic is the belt tensioner. If you don't have it then you don't have a G4S or something else is wrong.

im sure the RTR version of the G4S doesnt have the rear belt tentioner on it. you will need to add this on to the car. 502266-1 thats the part number for it
