Default Belts.

Those yellow belts were the old K Factory belts they had before the new G4s low friction belts came out.
Some people had some problems with them shredding.......I never had that problem and they really did turn well.
I believe they were produced using Kevlar...not certain though.

Default May do

You build well Hodak......so praise where it's due I say.
This will be my 3rd G4 now. I got one of the originals back in ....?....was it 2003?
Can't remember now
Anyway.

The car come such along way since the G4C I had then.
Do you have a special room set up for building your car Hodak?
Just curious because we just got a new house and I'm using the basement to do all my RC stuff in.

Would you believe i build the car on a japanese large coffee table, with a old bed sheet to protect the table and for the advantage to see any parts i drop.

Generally i sit in front of the TV, put a cool DVD on and work away.....!

The missues, she is cool as she does support the new craze, she thinks i am a KID.....

Any as for i build well, well i am getting support from a "birdy friend" & have done research on other forums like 3.hobby.net....!

thou cheers on the kindness of words!

Gear differential action is adjusted by filling the gear differential with differential oil of a specific viscosity.
Differential oil is rated with a “viscosity” number that indicates the thickness of the oil, which determines how much the oil resists flowing. Differential oil with a higher viscosity (for example, 100,000 oil) is thicker than differential oil with a lower viscosity (for example, 40,000 oil).

• To make a gear differential LIGHTER, fill it with thinner oil.
• To make a gear differential HEAVIER, fill it with thicker oil.

EFFECTS OF FRONT GEAR DIFFERENTIAL ADJUSTMENT
Lighter Front Differential (thinner oil)
• Decreases understeer
• Decreases stability under braking and acceleration
• Increases chance of traction roll
Heavier Front Differential(thicker oil)
• Increases understeer
• Increases stability under braking and acceleration
• Reduces chance of traction roll

EFFECTS OF REAR GEAR DIFFERENTIAL ADJUSTMENT


Lighter Rear Differential (thinner oil)
• Decreases on-throttle steering
• Less acceleration if the grip is there
• Less predictable car (cars with very “loose” diffs have a tendency to understeer heavily under throttle and turn-in oversteer as soon as you lift)
• Less on-throttle oversteer (snap-oversteer)
• Less turn-in understeer
• Less stable under braking
Heavier Rear Differential (thicker oil)
• Increases on-throttle steering
• Better acceleration if the grip is there
• More predictable car (cars with very “loose” diffs have a tendency to understeer heavily under throttle and turn-in oversteer as soon as you lift)
• More on-throttle oversteer (snap-oversteer)
• More turn-in understeer
• More stable under braking

TRACTION CONSIDERATIONS:
* The higher the traction, the lighter the diff oil up front, and the heavier at the rear.
* The lesser the traction, the heavier the diff oil up front, and the lighter at the rear.

thanks for good information.

But i could not understand about TRACTION

what do you mean by "The higher the traction","The lesser the traction" ?

The higher the traction means "high grip"? or "high speed circuit"?


i want to know about the exactly meaning of TRACTION Word !!

ByTRACTION I mean GRIP.....as Paul said

High Traction Track = High Grip Track
Less Traction Track = Low Grip (loose) Track

thanks for your reply...

i think that front diff must be harder than rear diff.

so i quess that it is good front 100000, rear diff 10000 in low grip Track.
and front 50000, rear 40000 in high grip Track.

Default Car setup tips needed

Hey guys.

I hope i can get some help

This is the track i will be running at this year and it will be my first time out there. I am hoping that you pros could help me with a base setup before i get out there?

http://www.jacksonrcracing.com/onroadpics.htm

The track seems a little small with tight turns. Hopefully you can give me some setups just by looking at the track.

Bud you could work with the setup Gansei posted earlier or use Muppet's setup of of 3hobby.It would be good enough to get you in the ball park.
