Here goes as i stated in some of my posts this is what i had already,so i figured i would give them a try,im not telling anyone to buy anything.Put it this way when i ran the kit shocks an springs let say at our Fort Myers track laptimes average 14.1 14.0.When i tested the {evolva, xray spring combo} not changing anything but shocks, an different spring combos,lets say xray pinks rear,serpents reds up front laptimes 13.8 13.6.Why i did this is because i have chance to play around with different spring rates.An agian if your the only TM car at an event wouldnt it be nice to have options, same goes for my clutch setup also our next state race is coming up soon, i will testing the 24t pinion from x-ray so, my gearing will be 17/62-24/56 MurnanM RBM3.An if i can use anything to make my car faster, isnt that how it works, an Randy has see my car run.Also my car is setup to run basicly any clutch i want as long as the gear mesh matches, i can run these following cluches Sirio power clutch,X-ray,Capricorn or Kyosho at a big race you can find these options.Love Tm G4rs 09 as stated before, if it makes me faster i will use it, just my 2cents.

The standard shocks can be improved upon for sure.
I think what we are saying here is dont stay home just because the standard shocks are all you have... they do a decent job.

Great .. If Bobby is getting nearly 1/2 a second it has to be worth investigating.

I assume you mean there is excessive play in the rear arms at the pivot mounts ... It does get a little sloppy... I think the KFactory mounts help a little.

Try 1mm shims or if you can find smaller ones then the 1mms put them in front an rear of the arm, it should get rid of that play that you have.

Guys today raced a G4RS09 fr the first time.

Great experience until a-main, i was on 2nd place of a 30 minutes a-main, when my 2 speed gearbox started to fail, ended last 15 minutes on 1st gear ... the 2 speed box seems to be fine "by eye" but it doesnt make the switch to 2nd , any tip ?, ended on 5th place ...

thanks,

Default g4rs 2speed

the 2speed works by centrifugal force and shifts by engine rpm. try adjusting the screws on the 2 speed shoes out 1/4 @ a time, untill it shifts where you want it to. there can be other reasons its not shifting. like gearing. so let us know if that worked or not.

Could be a oneway bearing problem?

It could also be that the inside the two speed housing gets a little oily (a common problem with some cars) from fuel or freshly oiled bearings. Scrape the surface of the 2 speed clutch shoes clean with a knife, and clean the inside of the housing with Methylated spirits, and see if helps.

We have to do this a lot in our Kyosho, and a mate of mine has the same problem every time he services and oils his two speed housing bearings in an XRay NT1.

Kindest regards,
Lars.
