Natrually you will need to have the Sway bar and fittings.

On the clutch setting up. Just ensure when all is assembled that you have "some" end play to your clutch bell! Some run more then others. But make sure there is "some" movement!! Otherwise you will blow up your thrust bearing VERY quickly!!

Shoot.. Forgot. You'll also need to make sure you use the RS Carbon Brake bracket as the "S" one will not allow for the RS sway bar........sorry

A good alternative to the RS stabiliser is to do the Mugen sway bar mod.
Its simple and you wont need to buy bulkheads etc.. just Mugen 2.2/2.3/2.4 sway bars and the ball ends and balls to mount it.
Have a look at post #5635 and part numbers on post #3742 of the G4S thread. I have bumped it up

We just file a slot in teh bulkheads for the bar to locate and it works very well.

This is a GREAT mod, I have it, and I think that the 2.3 is a all aound setting.
I will try to have some pictures of my car.

Have you tried to shave some material from the front blade, to made it softer? It also work great.

Have fun

thanks in advance...
Have you got a part number for that speedshot bracket it looks sweet. I just got the new speedshot bulkheads but don't have the brackets to fit to it so now i can't finish my kit

Also that other part looks like it's made of nylon, i thought it's made of carbon fibre?

I thought it is the same as the G4RS front end...the carbon fiber piece and the bracket.

the speedshot bracket is the same; however there's 2 types...
the RS is using nylon while the G4+ is using alum.

the carbon fibre part is the speedshot X-plate.
same for RS and G4+ but JS using nylon.

Bugger i just bought the rear roll bar set up for $20 but if it doesn't work out some how i might try it. What's the part number for that front alloy bulk head brace, the one the top arms are joined to and the carbon brace under it.

Is that called the "speedshot bulkhead brace", pardon my stupid question i'm only catching up to the G4s now

I just ordered the speed shot do i need that alloy piece aswell or will it come with it? I'm sure there will be more stupid questions comming as i'm trying to put together a 1/3 G4s, 1/3 G4rs and 1/3 G4+ so it will be interesting how it turns out. I'm hoping it will be the "super G4"
