#1 - Front spool
#2 - A fast engine
#3 - Lots of tyres!

The car out of the box doesn't really need anything else....

I would probably add a spring set and rear universals and your all set.
I can recommend the JLR picco tuned and 2607 pipe.very powerful!!
cheers

Yes. When the 'S' was only out a while. People/drivers noticed they couldn't get a stiff enough setting from the stock 'Blade' type sway bar ans started to use the Mugan 'wire' type sway bar.

It's reasonably easy to fit to. Just make a groove underneeth the rear cross brace. Drill two holes in the rear of the bottom wish bones and there you have it.

Using this 'wire' type bar. Darren Johnson for one (UK British Champ' with the G4 for 5 years in a row!!) had great success.

Hope this helps

Regards,
British Menace

P.S. Since the new top mounted Blade Bar has come out this has much more "Anti-roll" stiffness/ resistence then the stock blade found on the 'S'

Just a little harder, I think, to set up.

You know. One big mod you can do which really helps............and seeing as Darren has switched to X-Ray now.

The two screws on the rear of the carbon top plate. Which fix the top brace to the side brace stiffeners. The holes in the top deck need to be made over sized! Make them about a 4 to 5mm hole. Then put a washer beneath the screw you put in and don't tighten it down !!!!

It should just rest on top of the washer!!
This will allow the top plate and hence the rear "pod" of the car to flex and roll more and hence increase you grip

One thing though this does reduce the cars resistance to getting tweeked in a crash/ accident!! So watch the tweek on your chassis if you use this

Regards,
British Menace

This car uses the ED transmission. It is made by K Factory. You need to go to their site. Her is the link. at the bottom of the page is the gear ratio chart.
http://www.kfactoryracing.com/produc...4122&pageNum=1
K14122 is the Part # for the whole tranny. If I remember right it comes with 16T/21T pinions stock. These are the middle range pinions. Part #'s for the additional pinions you add a dash & tooth #. Example: K14122-15 will get you the 15T pinion K14122-21 will get you the 21T pinion Etc. Hope this helps.

I've noticed they do come really tight. I'm wondering if they locktight them at the factory??

Are you using the special tool or other tools? Just wondwering because I found it a little easier with the K Factory tool.

Does it look on straight?........maybe crossed threaded?
