Looking good, btw does the track width sheet is included in the kit?

No comment all praises for the G4S! The car has better steering than V3R which is my basis for agressive steering. On power steering is great, 30k rear diff oil is too much for our local track. G4S is by far the best car I've ever tried. Can't wait to get the car dialed

Default G4S set-ups

Once we've gotten a chance to really run the car. I know I'm planning on posting set-up sheets for all different tracks where we run. I plan on getting more detailed on what set-ups worked based on track conditions. Also tires play a very important part in car set-up as well as brand of tires. Car set-ups need to include tires mfr. used. Shores and rubbers can be nite and day between factories. I'm really hoping other drivers and racers will look to do this as well. I'll have to talk to Dennis about the best way to make it so all people running the car can access this info.

Wow that is impressive, too bad I never got one. Where did you pick up one second? I would be worried at least a little bit.
I looked at rays laps (jlap) based on 7 races at toledo during the club race series and there is exactly a one second per lap average drop that occurs about the 3rd race and stays consistant the rest of the year and that is the only thing that changed.(that is exactly when we started using it, I didn't even know it until I went back to look) The only thing I can pin it to is the steering change. 10 corners 1 tenth per lap.

All it takes is a few wins on a national level above those another brand name and people will start to believe in the new G4S.

I was looking at your pictures and noticed a couple things. The pivot ball screws are in backwards. The recess in the cap is where the teflon insert sits.
Also it looks like you have the right and left rear uprights swapped. The pivot ball on the upright goes in the front. Other than that lookin good
