The gear ratios match what is in the G4S instruction manual.

They are available and have been for a week or 2. I believe we sent one to winners circle for you a last week,(4/10) I am sure they will have it if you check with them after the holiday weekend. we were back ordered on those for a short while but we filled BO shortages to the dealers who had requested them. Just out of curiosity why are you in need of the yellow one? the yellow one is stiffer than you will need. 90 % of the time we all use the orange one. We have those to plenty of them.

I wanted the yellow one because all of the setups I've read here said to use the yellow one.

Have to say its awesome to see guys share info and collaborate like this
It makes a person feel confident in buying the product.
I am going to be distributing TM in South Africa and will be recommending this forum, thread as well as as the boys in the UK on 3HOBBY
Motorman 2 thumbs up to you and your team for setting a great example of what this sport should be about !!!

Welcome aboard ! I think you will find the people at TM, and the owners of G4's across the world to be an excellent group. Becoming a distributor for TM is also an excellent move. I can tell you as a dealer how happy I am to represent TM and meet the G4 owners across the country. It is truly fun!

You will be amazed when you receive your G4S. Unbelievable packaging and a great car inside. Get that thing put together quickly and get it on the track soon!

Have Fun!

Sam

good choice with the g4s, good solid car, i've got the original g4 fully hopped up and i can tell you its great to drive, shame the importer makes you wait for an eternity for parts whitch made me buy a mtx4 with geat parts backup in australia. a couple of guys at the track run the axe rossie whitch i beleive is the same as the inotech collari. i have run the collarri and wasnt impressed with lack of perfformance , the axe is the same i hear plus the carbies are known to play up ,change tune during race etc, dont know about sts, mega but hope i have saved you some headaches with the axe

Hey Itchy, shame you had to ditch the G4. If anyone else out there in Aus needs parts for the G4 and G4s then check out the people at www.rcgear.com.au for stock AND great pricing.

As for the Collari, I ran the later generation LC12 and found it to be a bit lethargic as well. Really good top end but nothing down low.

Cheers,

Mike.

Seriously, hobby xpress is a joke with supply. There should be a push to change the distributor of the TM products.

I can tell you now that if Eddie at rcgear.com.au can't get it, it's not around. He even races the G4 and now the G4s himself so guess what, he's got everything in stock. Call them on 08 9791-1990 or use the 'contact us' button on rcgear.com.au.

Every time I order, I've got the parts within a couple of days (because I'm too cheap to pay for express post ). I ordered my G4s on Friday and I got it today! Sweet.

Sorry for the shameless plug but I want to see more of the Team Magic cars get a fair go here in Aus, and since these guys can deliver and have an actual shop as well as a web site, you can buy with confidence. There are already a number of people from the eastern states that are buying from him and have enjoyed the experience. By the way, it's not me and I am not supported or employed by this shop. He is a buddy of mine and that developed through buying fom him and racing against him.

I got halfway through building my 'S' tonight and I'll finish it tomorrow! Now I have to wait until Sunday week to get it on the track!!!

Cheers,

Mike.

Got a brand new still in the box G4S in the for sale forums. Not doing much racing this year so it has to go.
