Default Excessive Rear Tire Wear

Guys,
I'm seeing the rears approx 2mm smaller than the front tires after a 5min round. my setup is

Stock G4S Kit Gears..
Spool up front,
50k oil in the rear diff
Tires are 40 shore Xceed all round..
no excessive toe/camber geometry etc.

could it be the roll bar settings?
Front is at 90 degrees (vertical)
Rear bar is approx 30 degrees (more rear grip? )

I'm not sure why??

2 things.
always start with the front tyres 1mm to 1.5mm smaller than the rears.
Alternative or in addition is to change the front side pulley to get some overdrive

Sirio pipe is long.. only impacts body and it does fit. Brake disks can rub against the front of engine block ever so slightly.

Default Lipo for G4RS 08

Does anyone know of a Lipo of at least 1100 mAh that will fit the G4RS 08?

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Your mongoose is 502x compatible up to G4+ 2007 the 07/08 RS has a different chassis plate.needs flying wings for top mount sway bars and the ED transmission. I upgraded my G4 06 RTR to ED transmission

The G4 5020XX still has life!

Just looking on the TM site and the G4D details are up. Coded as 502090 (i think 90?) this is the gas drift machine(tragic it has fallen to such lows)

Looks like our old favorite except it is a single speed and pullstart with the side belt moved out, other than that its a G4JR. The 4 wheel discs look.. hmmm... interesting.

So all you QLD Aust guys, do you think this could be slipped into the pullstart class with some upgrades (well,... a lot of upgrades, swaybars, 2 speed etc)?
