Default Team Magic G4

well the G4S is right around the corner. so heres the scoop. These are the changes from the G4 EVO model.

l Better transmission efficiency
We re-check the car & move all the shafts a little bit to make all the shafts perfectly parallel to each other. This can largely improve the transmission efficiency.

l Better parts fitting
We modify all the nylon parts & metal parts to make them perfectly fit. No more clearence issues.



changes:

1.New alum. anti-roll bar with two adjusters on both sides (Alum. color, no anodize)

2. K1488 Universal joints, but no logo.

3.New front one-way & solid axle—we use alum. to produce the front pulley & front one-way together. One piece design. They are not separate anymore. At the same time, it can be adjusted to solid axle as well without removing the axle from the car(Hard anodized to get the best strength)

4.New K Factory low friction belts—but no logo.

5.4mm Alum. flanged lock nuts for wheels (Alum. color, no anodize)

6.Single bell crank steering system (like other cars)

7.All adjustable rods (turnbuckles) will be made of stainless steel now

8.4mm front carbon shock tower

9.New 3mm carbon radio plate (new servo, receiver & receiver pack arrangement. You can easily install servos, receiver & receiver pack now. No more hassles.

10.Receiver packs included now

11.Special receiver pack plug mount included

12.Small alum. antenna rod mount included (alum. color, no anodize)

13.Large 5mm bearings for belt tensioner

14.New type 3mm alum. 7075 chassis (w/low mount rear belt tensioner)

15.Black color alum. side plate

16.One piece alum. engine mount

17.UFO clutch set

18.New thick carbon rear shock tower with alum. mount

19.New rear anti-roll bar set

Available mid January 2006

the S will be available world wide. The Pro Kit we plan to kit for the US market as it will be done in house. I'm sure if the popularity of our pro version kit takes off TM would consider kitting it that way at the factory. Time will tell.
