Helllo All G4S crew,
Today was my very first shake down test & tune day....
How did it go?
Well first off we had a few problems, such as the clutch spring nut was screwed down too far, this did'nt allow it to engage drive what so over.
Basically we backed the nut spring back of a tab to flush even and then it felt better.
Then we had second gear not engaging, we then realised the spur gear nut HEX was loose, and this basically had to be tighten as from factory it was not tight enough....
It was a like we owned the practice track today...
Once that was done, then it was fire it up again and adjust the second gear screws to make work.
On the first few laps, i went slow, took about 4 laps to get the feel of car, controller and power.
O Yeah it felt good, everything came good after a few more laps, more tuning in the Mega ZX.12 and it was on song
The track is on an down hill angle, and was heaps slippery off the race line, but i got some nice consistent laps and it was no drams what so ever.
No glitches for the day "Thank God" and the best news of the day,
Was i think a RECORD for South Australia 5 G4S at the same track on the same day......
Some had a few probs here and there but once all sorted most where on song for there race this Sunday!!!
I did notice a few things i need to change on rear settings:
more camber as outside tires wore more, this is due to the track layout an angle....
The setup of shocks, springs and height was good, much better as i let one of the Pro guys with more experience drive mine and he was like "Man ya car is so much better to drive, handle and better power to the ground compared to his.
He then changed his settings to his G4S and was much much happier!
Overall i got about 5 tanks out of the car and all in all, it was a positive day for me thats for sure....!
Lets just say, she is no longer a Virgin
Enjoy, time to clean it now.....
