However, my son is using the same receiver and his works perfectly. Not one single glitch. We both use 4PX Ďs. Iím thinking now it may be a QC issue. Iím going to see if GL will replace mine. Meanwhile Iíve purchased another micro for my GLR. Iíve been using a genuine Futaba standard receiver but will test my second micro in that car soon.
Havenít had the signal loss since January. Never at home. Just find the controller a pain. Thereís too many ways to make a single adjustment. Itís always felt twichy.

The problem now is I canít tell if the car has an issue, I think it does. Or if the bad driving is caused by the controller.

I knew the mini96 sized track was gonna be a challenge for it. But itís almost 2 seconds slower then every other car I run on it.

I got off to a bad start with Futaba. It took a month of trying to get a 1/10 receiver to bind. Got 4 others still canít.

Hi folks! anyonw know hwat happeend to GL F1 from Facebook? Page and the user have vanished it seems. I placed an order with them about a month ago, and items havent arrived yet but it's not suprising. Just curious if anyone know what happened? I've got my radio, just waiting for receiver and motor to get here then im good to start firing up my baby!
Unfortunately i had a bit of an accident a few weeks ago and i can no longer bend down so will be fun when i can evnetually get the thing running... hopefully i don't need to marshal myself too much

GL Facebook works great:

Not sure why you can't see it.

If you bought over from HK and choose anything different than Fedex or DHL, get ready to wait...

marshal should not be that much.. just start slowly ;-).

I’d hoped going with the 14mm rear tire would show some improvement. But so far no. I’m sure the humidity isn’t helping. But I’ve reached the end of my patience with the 4PL. No setting adjustments help. It either has too much steering and drives like a hammerhead shark. Or not enuff to make the turns. It’s now been 3 months since I’ve been able to actually drive it. And unfortunately, i still have no idea of when we might start back.

Ez laps transponder fits perfectly here. Iíve had to trim the back of my body few times. I have a feeling when we do finally get the class going. We will be running the prototype LMP body.
