I'm hoping to have parts to convert G4evo to S after the winternats. The factory is putting full effort into kitting S cars right now so their committing all the parts to those. so probably the 3rd week of feb.

The UFO, all I can say is it works absolutly perfect. But you must take special care when assembling the flywheel to the engine as very critical that the pins stay straight. Otherwise the plate disc will drag on the pins. I recommend holding the flywheel with large pliers with a rag around it when assembling the flywheel to the engine.

The UFO with the option alumunium clutch bell is also very very low in rotating mass so it improves engine acceleration significantly

People often over look their clutches(come on its just a clutch right,all the same, not!) 90% of what counts today given all the cars handle very well is Tires, Horsepower and Clutch. Next time you go to a big race walk around the pits and see how many 1/8th guys are working on the clutch, you will find it is almost a constant thing. I think it is important to have as many clutch combinations of tuning components in your box as it is to have shock springs in your box.

hi motorman
you mention the ufo clutch and that a driver/mech needs to have tuning parts for the clutch. do you or anyone else know of a web page link that tells you how to tune a centax/ufo clutch and what does what, eg hard spring slower engagement etc....

thanks
ML

I can't wait for the G4S. I loved the old car, but the only problem is that can't get parts from my local hobby shops. It seems like I am the only one in Canada running this car.
