Ran my MTX with several pieces of the K-factory parts on it today. All the parts work like a charm. I would tell everyone that unlike some aftermarket parts, K-factory is high quality stuff.

Thanks scott that is good to hear. I have heard some people have issues with other option parts. Especially the main shaft.

I wonder if they have the alloy parts in silver or gun metal color cuz personally I don't think blue fits the X4 scheme..

Sam (sfelish),

What happened to you? You didn't show up on final Sunday. Did the evening rain scare you? It was a beautiful final day for Airtronics race at Rev. I needed a pit man, and I would've pitted for you too.

Anyway, my buddy and I didn't find the correct setup for the G4. The guy sitting by you, who runs in expert class, had a good set-up but his engine wasn't as fast as the others. I only managed to 5th out of 10 guys in the main novice. (2 G4, the rest were mugens and kyoshos). Its okay, this is only my 2nd time running in this class, the rest of the guys have been in this class for a while.

Your G4s was the first that I've seen and it looks better than in pictures. I just have to wait till the price drops a little.

Nice meeting you and hope to see you again at anothe race.

Don (dnitro)

Hello from Germany
of these days I run my s-Class first time .. but it was on a track with few seized, so I cannot say yet at these Time. Next weekend goes it on a Track with much Gripp so we look at the future......I wants to hope that the s-Class also go with large tires , otherwise this is a big mistake at the G4s.It is not possible to cut all Tyres.
With the MTX 4 you can run from big to small and he run and run.....and runs

Can send me someone a setup for a track with extreme grip and a long distance of full gas ?????? or give me any Tipp s ???

Sorry for my bad english,it was a long time ago i went to school .

Thanks
Marc

Thanks Don for the help on saturday. We had electrical problems prior to that last heat so hadn't had the car on the track but for a couple of laps. As you saw that setup on the car was so poor I couldn't drive it at all... the rear wanted to beat the front end!!! And had some electrical problems again at the end when that car just took off... so not a good day....

Couldn't make it Sunday... My electrical problem turned out to be a wire on battery and had a melt down. Plus was called about some personal health problems with my mom and had to run home for that... ( 4 1/2 hour run )...
Just not my weekend.... but there will be more... I will be back

Anytime you're ready for the G4S just let me know Don...

Thanks also to RC_Allan for the help and advice....

Sam

Hey D_man,

Or was it the light orange (1.4) and Aqua (blue) 1.6mm Springs?
