3mm with stronger material...and they should be STEEP...cause it is Rcshopping.com....no one should buy from them, the price at the dealer should be lower...

Because........

1: They can't get rid of them.
2: They were able to get them alot cheaper then "everywhere else on the planet"!

I'll post a picture of mine later. I ended up using the arm and linkage from my hpi savage. I cut the head off a screw and threaded it into my k-factory arm. Threaded the other side with the hpi arm link. Then installed the actual linkage. Should do the job just fine.

Ok, i purchased the G4+ :-)

now it's time to throw the stuff in it.

I'm thinking about the picco .12 red dot to start with.

any pipe recommendations for it? and what kind of header do i need, there seems to be a ton and they dont specify which will fit.

next up servos....

If you get the jlr, get the picco 2607 pipe. It comes with the header and seems to be the best pipe for that engine.

I recommend the red dot evo3 or even better the tune version! get the matching picco 2607 pipe and then for servos futaba 9452 it would be good to upgrade your nimh to a lipo= premium power 1300mah receiever battery then your all set!!
cheers

Too right. They're only missing that guy "Solara" , then they'd have a world beating team...

Thats a strong line up for sure but having a guy as good as Marc but green to Nitro could have its hassles.
