hi i have a G4 too i think the best option would be K factory Brakes for about $60 it has smoother breaking and does not lock up unless you want it to.
i only have the standard brakes but i am pretty unimpressed with them.

If you got the RDLogics Monggose you don't need much options
you might need to get teh rear shock tower stiffner or the Alu. rear shock tower set if you worry about crashing the car.
Front CVD and Alu. Wheel adaptor is good option too


maybe wait a little longer to get the G4S convertions.

Great motor for bashers and outlaw class... Just don't run that motor with the G4 S-class gears.... You'll be stripping Spur gears all day long... If you're running the old stock spur gears, then you should have no problems... That motor is a monster with goooooooobbbbbbbbb's of torque, so gear for torque and not for RPM... 20/51 1st... 25/46 2nd should work fine... If you can find the K-factory 21 & 26 tooth clutch gears made for the NTC3 but uses the same clutch bell as the G4... "Very Important"!!! The same clutch bell as the G4, then no one will be able to touch you with the TZ-18... The gears are a tad bit larger then the stock G4 gears, but they fit and work with no problems... Part number for 21st tooth is (K1231), 26th tooth 2nd gear is (K1236)... K1231 is hard to find sometimes so if need be, you can use 22 tooth 1st gear part #(K1232)... Your car will be a ROCKET!!! Good Luck

The rear belt tensioner was one of my favorite hop ups.

I would recommend in order of priority
K1493,K1494,K1495 The new belts they live a long time and don't streach
K1443,K1498 The brake disc and new pad set. These improve braking and brake fade tremendously
K1496 The one piece engine mount This will greatly improve the clutch pinion to spur gear fit and will greatly improve spur gear life
K1439-1,K1442 These are the carbon side braces and mid shaft mount, these will greatly stiffen the car torsionally, so the chassis can work in a more consistant way.

You did not say what model G4 you have. Is it an C,E or EVO model? Everything above is fine for all those models. Other part recommendations depend on which model you have. (ie Clutch, gearbox)

Just my opinion here If your going to use an 18 I would consider those as must haves for the car.

PS if your going to go much further than that you might be better off upgrading to the new G4S car. You will be further ahead with less cost overall. See G4S thread

well that makes a difference so let me look at your list again. If any of those parts i listed before you don't have I would consider those to be the most important from top to bottom.

K1473 Nothing to get real excited about
K1429 same If your prone to hitting things it will bend the front of the chassis
K1424H wont fit S class 2 speed gears only prior E class. Diameter is different
K1428 Not necessary but looks cool I have one on my car
K1483 YES,YES YES I use that on my car 80% of the time along with 1482
K1457 is the front 18 pulley The small 18 front will improve front belt life
K1458 If your into alum pulleys, I use the plastic 19 usually, they weigh less
K1459 Same as above
K1422 or do you mean 23 If 23 yes that part reduces rotating transmission mass and that is a good thing.
K1496 YES YES
K1434 Not necessary but looks cool I have one on my car. However it is stiffer so it should improve brake response and consistancy some
K1438 I like thar part it stiffens the rear bulkheads
K1439 Yes Yes Yes
K1418 Your Evo should have come with these.(maybe some did not get them) If your wheel hubs are plastic I would get these
K1442 Not necessary but looks cool
K1410-0 Yes Yes Yes the coating is a good thing and its lighter
K1498 Yes Yes Yes on the must have list in my opinion.
K1497 Yes Yes On the must have list along with 1497-12 Alumunium hard coat clutch bell. Those are so light you cant hardly feel it when you hold it in your hand. Much improved engine acceleration.

There you have 1 opinion.

Hey guys you seem to know what your talking about. Just curious i've seen the G4 low friction hop-up belts, i think theyre white or something?? Do they last longer, are they more durable?

Cheers,
hav

i cannot hit the second gear on my G4 the clutch is recently new but im going to buy a new 2 speed clutch shoe do you think it will solve it its the only thing i can think of that not working in the 2 speed. unless it my engine but thats highly unlikely it has 37 500 rpm that should be enough its a hyper 12.
