almost all of the cars in the market are copies of something, you just buy quality wise....

Yes agree with you, so that means your bell and shoes are the right ones.

I would take that of your hands but I am waiting for the G4II bro. I think you should keep it. I don't think is a good idea to get rid of your cars. I have many cars and love them all, it is true some are better performers but they are all my children.

well as of right now I am getting out of onroad thats why i dont want to keep it.

the closest off road trackto me is 25 min away the closest on road is an hour 30min with heavy traffic.

so for the time being I am done with onroad.

if I was gonna stay with onroad I would get the g4II as well, I would wait until its released and consumer tested before I bought one, and I am offering the g4rs for almost $100 of price so hopefully I find a buyer.

I remember when I first bought my Revo I got the firts batch and it had the issue of snapping the rear nylon ball end connectors.

ohh come on don't be silly!! that is nothing, I remember when I bought my audi s4 2008 and 3 months later they brought out the 2008.5 . My point is dont procrastinate . If you don't want your car to break dont drive it I probably went through a million replacement parts between all my cars put together.

im not worried about my car breaking, its just anooying to drive that distance in that traffic with prices of transportation going back up.

the ride to the off-road track is a nice relaxed drive, the onroad track goes through new york city and I cant stand that traffic, tolls, gas. it makes sense to go with off road for now and I cna use the money from the g4rs for other things

i wanted to ask opinion with my chassis here.i twisted my chassis by few degree i think in one stupid incident. when i lay this chassis on a setting board, front left is not touching the board. if i twist it back to almost flat, would it effect my chassis handling?

after getting as flat as possible, you could do the tweak check and tune yr chassis accordingly...
try it on the track and see how it goes; else better to get a new chassis!

i also discover washer holder underneath front speed shot X-brace plate chipped off! unlucky week for me

hmm..i love my last setup, took me about 1 litre of fuel to get it right.
maybe i will try to counter droop distance on the other side of the chassis and see how it goes.

crashes suck, and luckily the G4S and newer kits were extremely durable, I only broke one part on the g4s and that was the front shock tower have going into a barrier and dipping under it at 30mph.

your crash with the chassis tweak and x brace is the worst damage crash I ever heard of on a g4.

my accident was also similar to yours just that i hit the barrier dead on and totally dead stop from almost full speed. the x-brace fixed with eproxy. i never had anything broken with my g4s long time ago,but then again it didnt fly and crash like my RS did.

Looked awesome! Changed gear right on the apex of some corners without even looking like loosing grip. I'm getting one!

Kindest regards,
Lars.
