That is similar to the original Kyosho V1R, the car is fast, and can get results, but you will have to work on your driving 'cos it is behind on technology and the weight is higher up (my V1R used to grip roll easily when off power).
The G4S will make going fast so much easier and more consistent, 'cos you will not have to fight the car.

I feel your pain. I had the extension with briken wire on my old G4S, I think is the problem of how they align the wire make the power souece connection prone to breakage, one have to be careful withwiring to avoid such accident

Dam ,same happened to me but I was lucky.I was get a glitch every now and then.checked all electronics ,no problems.
Then when i was running ,as the car entered the back straight it pulled over to the side ,thinking it flamed ,I ran over and it was still idling away.
Checked through everything thinking my specktrum died ,I figured out it was the battery.Stripped and soldered pack ,verything OK.

Ran car with the front diff and 30000w GS oil ,wow what a difference.Corner entry greatly improved.
I ran a new Maga DSII engine ,so was messing around with gearing on the ED and was surprised how much different I needed to change gearing compared to my PR12.The Mega preffered a much longer first gear.

Day came to an end when it started raining just after mid day.happy with the gearing I had played a bit with setup and found with the new front end that the car liked the std roll centre (outer hole) and caster forward with 1 thin spacer.Back end of car ran 2 deg camber with the quick release setup compared to 3.5 with the std rear upright.

Current setup:

width front: 198mm rear: 200mm
spring front:1.6mm, rear: 1.5mm
shock oil: front: 60wt, rear: 60wt GS oil
shock piston: front/rear : 1.3 X 2 hole
front toe out: 1, rear toe in: 2.5
front camber:2 rear camber: 2
front drop: 3, rear drop: 2
front diff: 30000wt rear diff: 3000wt GS oil
steering rod position(in knuckle arm): inside
body: Mazda 6 (preference is Blitz Mazda 3)
front shock positon: 3rd from top
rear shock positon: 3th from top
rear stabiliser: 75deg
front stabiliser: 0
tire: front/rear: TM 40 front / 35 rear will change to 40

clutch: clearance 0.5mm, end play 0.2mm, spring black 1.8mm,
clutch nut locking length .6mm,
shim weight 2
red weights
black shoe
1st gear 17/52
2nd gear 20/45 but I think 21/46 would be a better combo.

Ed system.

i think rear diff 3000wt is too soft.

it feel like very quick in corner entry.. But corner out is very slow.

and rear grip is some unstable.


Because diff oil is too soft, diff action will be much in corner out. (like wheel spin)


i suggest that rear diff oil is between 10000wt and 50000wt.

and front diff is between 100000wt and 50000wt.


rear diff oil will be soft in low grip,

rear diff oil wilb be hard in high grip..

of course same to front diff (50000~100000)


if you think hard diff cause to slow corner entry..

it can be solved by shock,toe change setting.

You think I should go to a harder front diff oil and higher rear diff oil too.
Ill give it a try.
Only hassle I am having out of corner is when I apply power the car understeers a lot and when I went forward with the castor it helped a bit but still cant power out of the corners like I used to.

Razzor,

You are on the right track. Gansei has given you the good oil (pun intended). The rear diff oil is way too soft. The stiffer the diff you make in the rear the more steering you will get coming out under power. 3000wt oil is suitable for offroad since they have the 3 diffs to work together. I would suggest about 15K to 30K diff oil in the rear and 50K to 100K in the front.

Cheers,

Mike.

Great stuff guys ,thanks.
If I am going well now and can get better then I cant complain.
one more question what would the difference/advantages be of using the red clutch weights and shoe compared to the std black ones ?
