The rail mounted ski doo ones are what I have on my 146 2" track are great.  Don't bother with the cable variety. Most times all you will need to do is run one down and you will get all the lube you need.  Bare ice I will run two.

Your G 4 has a stronger bulkhead and weaker rails then your G 3. Not an issue just pointing out what the folks that race them are finding. Rail scratcher as mentioned are standard needs with a 2" track. I needed more lighting on high beam, extra fuel capacity and a sensible windshield for -20C and beyond. Great sleds your going to like it.

Ditto ...  I find the same thing

I'm with you on wishing for more fuel. I'm lucky that I "can't run out" as my riding partner is on a Pol RMK so he needs to find gas way before I do.  That being said I wish I could carry a gas can just in case. I am running the 2 position slim bag with a shovel on top which leaves no room for a gas can. Anyone have a solution that allows you to keep the slim bag/shovel?

Doo makes scratchers with and without replacement tips (tunnel only).  How long does a set of non-replaceable tip scratchers last?  Granted, the amount of use will determine life expectancy so lets say the scratchers are down for 500 miles. 

 

I'm debating whether to get rail mount vs. tunnel with replacement tips.

Mine were done after one season.

I had the tunnel mount on my renegade before converting it to a 146" T motion and putting on the rail mount.  I prefer the rail mount over the tunnel mount.  They definitely kick up more ice and it is further forward on the skid.  A lot of the spray off the tunnel mount go out to the sides and never end up in the suspension.

I have 2 sleds with the tunnel mounted. 10,000 miles on each sled, no replacement tips needed. I have the rail mounted Doo ones on my backcountry. I like them better as they are further up the skid for better cooling.

I also have rail mounted scratchers. Broken 3 sets. I don't like the looks of the tunnel mount but I am considering for next year.

depends on how “lazy” you are, I’ve ran my non-replaceable metal ones on my 15, they have about 300 miles on them... but when I get to a super low “rocky” area, or a road crossing, I’ll stop and put them up and cross the road(s) or rocky area, then drop them back down. They still look brand new and no worn metal, and they throw snow like mad into the suspension and track and make a huge difference in operating temps in hard pack conditions

That's pin it or die type stuff there.. Nothing worse than coming around a corner and seeing a freekin pond that's the entire way across the trail and 50 yards long. Oh and of course the lip at the exit point on the pond is about a foot high straight up and your wife is right behind you on her sled and you say "PIN IT and KEEP IT PINNED!"... and she says "what?".

Tic knows how to pin it!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
 

I’m sick of snow
