Only questionable item is the rear roll bar.

about the WC chassis...3mm is fine as long as it's stronger than the current RS 3mm chassis.
price? no idea but hopefully <100?
maybe thats normal ??I was looking at that servo but went the 9452 instead go to futaba website they will give you an answer last time I asked something they responded quickly. http://www.futaba.com.au/browse.asp?ContainerID=1645

i would think all parts would change over. the G4+ and RS use a spacer on the rear of the arm where the low roll bar used to be. so just maybe you can use the old bar as well. length of hinge pins would be the factor in this. as the back plate is redesigned also. i would imagine the price being over $100 as there are alloy bulkheads and new front bulkheads as well. as for the alloy bits, can make the car rigid and remove grip. requiring a new setup all over again. i liked the plastic x brace from the JS really helped the cars flex and was a huge notice with out changing anything else.

as for the polotics...... maybe helped the reason for the change i have made.

Hi Paul, I agree there is not going to be much flex in the car with the new alloy parts so its a gamble to upgrade and then relise with the upgrade you just lost grip as for bad business I have relised theres not much you can do when there the one holding all the cards you just have to go with it or change all the best with the new change mate!!

eh...cant seems to find anywhere on the site where i could email them?

i was actually looking at 9452 and 9551 but bought 451 instead as one of my frds is selling for the price of the 9452.
personally i prefer the 9551 as it's smaller and lighter!

how's yr 9452? reviews?
my main concern now is whether my 1500mah lipo got enough 'juice' for my 451s to last a 1hr mains?

i do believe WD , that the BLS is brushless and there fore has less current draw against similar brushed spec. so id think it would be better to be brushless.

Shouldnt be a hassle the 451 dont constanly work like the brushed or coreless servos so don have near the drain of the non brushless servos.
On a 1500lipo you will make 1 hour easilly.
I ran 45 mins on a 800mah with no hassle.

where did you get these prices from ?
at times they quote a higher price than what they will actually sell for.
when the G4+ first came out, they were Quoting around the $900
then the price came down to around the $650 mark. so give it some time and im sure it wont be that expensive. but you never know

Lol...........

Remember people.
The full retail price of a G4RS is $659 !!!

Who has ever paid that much for their car?

Also, some phycological stuff always goes on when pricing stuff that isn't even out yet.

Say it's going to be $100............ people say too much.

Then sell it for $60 and everyone thinks they got a good deal.

Say the part is $50, $60 or even $65 then bring it out and try selling the same part for $60 then.............. you'd never sell any or at least not as many!

Just my thoughts.

Just wondering if someone could help me out with a manual for a G4s. I've gone to the MAGIC website and all i can seem to get is just an exploded veiw of my car. I have an eagle racing G4 team kit and it came with a great manual but i just bought the G4s second hand and it came with no manual. Even if someone wants to scan it then email it to me. Any help would be great.

Thanks, Brad
