True, forgot that one. I've not seen any pics that show which rear bar Dario was using so we still don't know if the wire bar or the blade bar will be included. Once I get mine I'll post here on the differences as I find them.

Thanks for the Photos! Time to get out the dremel... Carbon Fiber dust everywhere ! I wonder if I can use the dremel under water..

anyone know if this kit will improve and carry over ideas from the g4+ evo?

like aluminum rear bulks
carbon fiber bumper brace
what are they doing for the front? one way? solid, lockable, diff?
ZF bearings
more Kfactory parts
ED transmission
improved clutch
kfactory shocks
the improved gold turnbuckles

the picture doesnt show much.


or will they start all over with those types of parts to be able to release new kits and get more cahs out of us?

I dont wanna bash the g4rs 2009, and I hope the people who get them take picutres of all the parts spread out so we see how it really is. Someone should do a very detailed with pictures build to ease some minds.

as of right now it looks like the g4+ evo has better upgraded parts than the
g4 rs 2009 will.

If you really want to know you should get one and try it out first hand. It is never the same when another driver tells you how the car handle or how it looks(SPECIALLY ONLINE). And believe me TM is just like Xray or Kyosho they come up with new versions all the time. I have the NT1 2008 and now the 2009 is out and you want to know what the difference is? I am not going to tell you cause you probably already know ( same car with upgrades) I am now waiting for the NT1 2010 (same car more upgraded parts). The g4+evo can have better upgraded parts but does that make that car faster??? I don't know but I will tell you when I get my G4RS 2009

thats just one thign that gets to me, I know its their way of making money, but if they improve one model to a point where its durable, fast and handles well, their new model should have everything the previous one did and then added parts to making it even better.

when you get a car with parts that make it more durable and its already fast, and you go back to parts that make the car less durable, it seems to me that you are taking steps back not improving.


but w/e im sure there will be tons of pictures and reviews about this car when it comes out.


is there a set date yet? or is it still mid june? which we are quickly closing in on.

I replaced the turnbuckle with MTX4 parts on one of our G4RS cars, and I replaced ball end and all. I did because the turnbuckle was damaged, and MTX4 parts are made a lot stronger. Another member of my club has also had the same experience, and uses MTX4 turnbuckles and ball ends now. My other G4RS will get the same treatment if we experience a problem with that one. My recommendation is to replace ball ends with the turnbuckle, as Mugen ball ends are some of the toughest in business.

Another problem that we and other members of my club has experienced; is that the steering ball ends pop off too easy, and most of us replace those with Mugen parts before even trying a new car on the track.

Is there anyone else on this forum that has had the same experiences?

Kindest regards,
Lars.

I've never had a ball cup pop off but I still went ahead and replaced them with the Mugen ball ends. They are much easier to work on and have less slop all around. If you can tell I also used longer turn buckles on the roll bar. I could not get the tweak set right with out almost unscrewing them from the ball cups.
