This move by me and TM had more to do with the company you mention than you will ever know. They are nice people but after 5 years of promoting their company free gratis I feel I paid my dues. And I'm not talking going to one or two tracks in california and racing their car on a 50% ride. I'm talking about promoting it all over the country at my expense, (lets get this straight at my expense) And as for support level 90% of the people supporting them could not even get an email returned. You feeling me here!
ONE... I don't know you nor do I care to know you... If I was refering to you I would have called you out by name, but by your sarchasm and just being a complete idiot... The world does not evolve around you nor does the G4S... While you may post like you're the inventer of penicillin when it comes to your imput on the car... There are other people here that have had an important role in this car development besides you. I will give credit where credit is due, I don't kiss up nor kiss @$$ period... Nickko knows me and so does David and I will always support them and people with class and integrity... When I talk to Robbie Collins and others from Team Mugen and Paul Colman and others from Team OFNA there's a level of class. While you have supported the car and gave your imput to TM and I commend you for that... Many others have too... Many people have been behind this car like myself for almost 3 yrs now... I never put you on blast here in the treads even if we disagreed... Even with some of your replies to questions, but this one... Come on now... I'm not a child and neither are you... Post like you have some class and some sense. Your knowledge is valuable... and again, I don't want to bring this tread down having to reply like this to statments said by you. The big picture is that we both support the car and TM. period

It would be very nice that if someone has a question, even if it's posted a few pages back to answer it or point that person in the right direction... .02
If the input and replies are positive, this will only help and not hurt the thread.

Well you have clearly not even bothered to read as little as this page, as the answer was discussed.

The roll center IS adjustable.

The suspension geometry is just fine thank you very much. How are you comparing the two anyway. If a car handles it just handles. Just ask the 1/12th scale guys who are going back to a suspension design that was developed in the early 80's.
Suspension geometry looks dated thank you very much.

I would agree it looks dated as it has not changed, neither has a NTC3 but big bad barry seems to be able to TQ with the dated suspension on that car still today. Point is if it works good why jack with it.

the rear bar and bracket were reworked some to improve the concentricity of the bar alignment and dual adjusters were added to make it easier to balance.

Uneke
also the cg of the battery pack did not change as it was bolted to the bottom of the top deck before so the cg of the battery pack stayed in the same place. Its rotational center changed some and by moving it forward and to the side it added a little front weight and balanced the side weight. In fact moving the weight outboard actually helps the car some as the CG is so low on the car the outboard weight helps it roll more on a right turn. I always remember feeling an right left imbalance in the car before. I'm hoping the battery move improves this. I guess I'll know pretty soon. Those who have used Lemans top decks as some of you have already what did you think??

Hey lighten up Francis. LOL No I think the post just came out that way. I don't think he meant you. I look forward to seeing you again.

On another note: we have requested a part number for a crash kit with essential plastic in it.

Francis: the other good part is that we will have K Factory for all cars not just G4. Including 777,MBX5,V1R/S-RRR,MTX3/4,NTC3,B4T4,REVO,FW05
