I'm not going into the "what car is best" argument, but this is the results at the end of a 12 round Summer Series Club Championship on the smallish Aldershot track with only has a 155ft (45m) slightly uphill main straight.
(only Aldershot club members score championship points)

1 - Adrian Poole - Team Magic
2 - Andy Gardiner - Team Magic
3 - Nigel Moss (me)- Team Magic
4 - Iain Hollands - Serpent
5 - Mark Sellars - Mugen (up for sale, getting TM)
6 - Marc Handford - Team Magic
7 - Mark Lister - Team Magic
8 - Dave Skelton - Team Magic
9 - Les Mainwaring - Team Magic
10 - Jon Wilkins - Team Magic
11 - Stephen Mills - Team Magic
12 - Andy Greenwood - Team Magic
13 - Thomas Francis - Team Magic
14 - John Zottl - Serpent
15 - Barry Smith - Mugen
16 - Alex Brown - Mugen
17 - Dave Westwood - Mugen
18 - Mike Hills - Team Magic
19 - Nicola Crockett - Team Magic
20 - Steve Brown - Serpent
21 - Aaron Wearn - Team Magic
22 - Ashley Bond - Mugen
23 - Jamal Ainul - Serpent
24 - Adam Ricketts - Serpent
25 - Colin Taggart - Mugen

All I do know is that the G4S works out of the box with only the option spring set needed (other bits just makes it better)

Nimo,I don't think anyone (me) care what the car is doing over sea's anymore I know i don't It's more about who has the rights now in the USA.I love the car,have ran it since February. TM don't know what thay have done. I will not support a company that dont care about the people that keep them in business!!!! It's not just about g4s it's about everything this company has done over the years. I don't think it's gone to change now.I want support it,sale it to anyone.I'll just put it in the basement with all the other things forgotten.

Sorry just my opinion.

Rcrevolution.

wheel hexes are $14.00 items.

ufo is tm item. the other manufacturers has thier own version of the centax style clutch. So it might be an upgrade to team magic owners but not for other cars.

dual sway bars? last I checked most manufacturer's has front and rear swaybars.


Nimo- glad to hear the cars basic suspension works superb at your home track. I'm sure that the roll center adjustment was added because it is needed at certain tracks and the ed was developed for the same reason.

Judging from the pics of you local track the bite does not look to high putting a lower gear would probably just be wasted on tire spin.

All i'm saying is that as a paying customer i would consider the extra cost for those two items.

Is Trinity really that good at screwing things up?

My response to Nick at Team Magic,

Nick,
As a G4S owner and customer of Phenix Distributing. (via raceday hobbies) The news of TM pulling the product line from Dennis disappoints me. The countless hours he put in to the product, racing and promoting it. To be blind sided by this. Shows TM has no loyalty. The rumor is that Trinity will be distributing TM products now. My prediction to that idea will be the death to TM products in the USA. Who will be giving there personal knowledge and support? The input and support of Dennis has been helpful to all G4S drivers.

I sure hope that Brian and Dave Berry have rides for 2007. In my opinion, these guys are exactly what I would be looking for to represent my company. A first class act all the way for as long as I've know them (many years).

Dennis - sorry to hear about your challenge, but perhaps it is an opportunity.

In my opinion the G4S right out of the box is the most complete and optioned kit out there, and as such will perform well in most situations. So for those situations in which it doesn't, they come out with more options, but nobody is obliged to get them, unless you really need them, but it is good to know we have them.

You are starting on the wrong assumption that everyone who buys a G4S will have to buy those options, which are not must have.

On other brands you have to buy a lot of options to be on the base line of a G4S, expensive or not they are must haves, or wait for the prospec, R, WC, Evo orv the llike kits which are more expensive right of the box.

Just my 2 cents

AFM

Yes, when I was having my first G4E distributed by Trinity. I broke a basic plastic part and wait 2 months until I desided to get the part from HK. So i sell my G4 right after it is fixed ( it is sold to Italy cuz no one wanna buy car distributed by Trinity)

A friend of mine had strip the button head of his Sirio Engine, it took a month and half for my LHS to get the part from them (which is claimed out of stock on Trinity Site for so long) and I never see the parts sell anywhere else in US

the T-spec, eletric car rebatch under Trinity, totally no parts support what so ever. I just toss it right after my first broken part

they sucks in customer support and never really care for their products. the only thing that people should buy from them is items that don't need specialised replacement parts such as eletronic or moter. you really don't want to buy thing like car kits

Maybe Trinity sucks in distributing, but they have many drivers and they can send them to the Worlds. In Brisbane only 5-8 people driving G4S from 120+ participants I don't think its good for TM. Maybe TM (with Trinity) want to give a shot for Worlds title?
