Just go thru the REDRC pics about the G4RS WC pics...and found out all these differenet parts.

(1) Side pulleys
(2) 2 speed (1st gear hub) not using E clips, use screw in with cap.
(3) Use longer pins and collet to prevent fuel cap's pin coming out (must do modificaiton for me..)

the pullies are from the G4+ , this is the all alloy shaft and pullies. while looks good, the front lay shaft breaks on impact. the inside front pulley is apart of the shaft. there is no free play between pullies and drive pins for the pullies with this system. but fragile.
the tank pin would be a mod some one has done. i tried once to replace a tank cap. man i ended up buying a new KF tank.

I take back what I said.

It appears there are a few distributors / dealers who have or have had in, the "WC" parts this week.

Yes. As 'Patto' has said the screw at the end of the two speed shaft comes from the ED trans' which came on the G4+ and as an upgrade too.

Good to see Barry, Dario and Marc able to make the G4 go so well in Portugal. I think with a little more luck, it could have been so much different!

On the WC stuff....... I do like the chassis and the rear parts. I think the front parts are somewhat.......cosmetic?!

Regards,
British Menace

I'm surprised. If these shots are showing the cars that are being used in Portugal. These are not the RS.

They are the older car, the G4+ with some upgrades on??

I don't like the transmission on the +. It's so heavy!!!
But then again........... Dario seams to be doing prety well with it.....lol. So what do I know?!

Default What is up with Wolf Hobbies???

Anyone know what in the world is going on with Wolf Hobbies??? I've been trying to contact them about a problem with the chassis on my G4RS for the last 2 weeks. I have left voice mails and have even sent them pics of the issue by email and they haven't responded to either. Our local hobbyshop where I purchased the kit has tried contacting them and they've been unsuccessful as well. I also found out an order was placed 2 months ago by the same shop for TM parts from Wolf Hobbies and the order was paid for but still has not been shipped. Not sure what all this means but if Wolf Hobbies can't provide proper service for their product they shouldn't be in business. I'll be looking for another distributor for my TM parts. This is a bunch of BS.

If your local dealers wont look after you maybe try and contact RC garage in Bayswater VIC as they will ship anywhere in AUS. I would normally like to see a local dealer step up but if that is not the case then........
Talk to Adam
If you still have no luck then let me know

can someone confirm that the WC 3mm chassis is indeed stronger than the regular RS 3mm chassis?

the regular RS chassis will tweak! frt and rear will raise up slightly after usage even without any crashes...

Does anyone know of an australian distributer i can contact in regards to an order i would like to place for the pinion removal tool (p/n:116055)???

It would be good to find out exactly who i can get parts off as there are only so many TM parts at my LHS.

im just having this conversaton with some one else.
the G4+ was too rigid, and as a result was hard to find a sweet spot.
the G4RS was a step in the right direction once again. know i feel any flex or roll with the new alloy bulkheads, are a step backwards. if these parts were made in plastic, then it would be much better.

From what i heard Dario was running both the + and the RS but preferred the + for practice as they where still learning and getting a setup for the WC chassis.
The Wc kit would be more suited to higher traction tracks while the Rs itself is more suited to most tracks that are medium to low traction.
