Some f these bodies you guys are posting pix of are great! Time I started to get something together on the body front I think. I especially like the looks of yours Frankie.

I'll be pleased when we get back on the internet after moving house.
inquired with the company to provide us and I was told "........................... we can't find your address on our computer"

I guess that means we're not actually living in this house then does it????? OMG
And yet they provide to the house next door !!
This is what comes of having a house in the country.

Nothing wrong with colour pink Paul. Remember the old GTR XU-1? At least all the Pro class could see you coming!

Okay, Just need to shade the flames and color the body. I need to paint the head lights and grill as well. Almost done. I will post pic when I have it all mounted and film off and a few G4S stickers next. Need to mount spoiler of coarse. Does it still look like Hulk??

Frankie, dude that is a sweet scheme. That will be an easy body to paint with just cans. I need to look at the colors a bit more though. Are these your final colors or just an example? Or are these your sponsors colors? I need help here bro to brain storm a bit. Talk soon bro! Later ALL!!!!

Hey Patto,

You were right on with the O ring thought. The o rings had gotton old and 'grown'. This was pushing the gears out and once the diff' screws were tightened down, this was causing the roughness and binding in the diff'.
A couple of new o rings and it was good to go.

OMG... I must be the only person on here having problems and my car hasn't even turned a wheel yet !!

Thanks for that Patto !

Menace

Dude, sorry I haven't got a hold of ya yet. Any luck with set up sheets? I have a few to send you but need to find them on the PC.

I personally have never even ran the G4S yet. This weekend will be the first for me as long as the damn weather stays decent. It was nice today, about 45F out, but of coarse with wind, so more like 35F Bro I am soooo sick of winter this year. We still have snow on the ground from 2 months ago! JESUS!!! This is why I have been painting this body a few hours each night. I keep getting inturupted or something pops up to slow me down. This is why I haven't had a chance to get a hold of you bro. Don't think that I was ignoring you or anything dude. I would NEVER do that.

Anyway, let me know if you need help with setups still. When do you head to Cincinatti? I sure hope the weather is decent there. Talk soon bro!

Hey....no worries Serpentd. It's fine.
I'll be interested to see what you come up with set up wise thats all.
I know just what you mean about the snow........

Anyway. There's two reasons why I'm bugging people about set ups.
One.....................................OMG the snow and the ice storms and the lack of practice without travelling 400 miles

The other is that I come from England where they do not treat their tracks nor are many of the circuits there more then low to med' traction. Also I primarily ran in the nitro rubber championships..........so even lower grip.
Now this is the first year I'll be going to more than just the 'odd' race, and with the high traction tracks here and running foam. Although I'm getting used to them now. I nead some help.

I'm not due to travel to Cinci' until May 4th but I may get to a warm up race either there or in St. Louis.

Hey good luck with running your new G4s this weekend. I bet your excited aren't you?

Later man.

Menace
