I'll 3rd it
i have had a pretty bad time of it the last 3 meets, but when i look at the style and the rage with in the G4S just sitting here on my desk, it reminds me how much fun it all is. the great days certainly make up for the distant bad ones. i do hope they are a thing of the past.

We have 2nd round of the National series in 2 weeks and will be having a club prep and set day this coming Friday/Saterday.
To help all our club guys get everything sorted and ready for the nats.

Last nat there was 2 G4S cars entered this coming meet hope to have 4 running.
Response to cars ability has been slow locally but the guys are seeing the potential and interest is getting there.
I think things will only get better out there for the G4s Razzor. Best of luck. Thats a really good idea........bringing everyone together like that to make sure everyone is prepared as fully as possible. Something there we can learn from I feel.
Lets extend the 'family theme out to the track. Get fellow G4 drivers in preperation meets like this.
Excelent idea I think!
Razzor........Have you used the 2.3m bar in your conversion?

Can you suss me out some of those hex tools like yours? I'm also keen to get some other replacement parts such as ceramic bearings.
Way to go Zoom......nice to hear people putting themselves out to help people like that. Sometimes in the heat of the day we forget or are just too selfish to think of our fellow racers.

Nice work Zoom. You are a credit to the family !!

Menace one great thing about our club is although we run different chassis the guys are always willing to help out seeing that it keeps the competition tighter.Pointless being top dog if you dont have competition to push you and make those wins worth while and also on the occasions when losing we still win with good tight races that gets our adrenaline working.
Afterall we do it for the fun of it, the win is a bonus

Must say the Serpent distributor for SA is a club member and a wealth of info and thanks to him we learn a lot from his practice days and workshops.
Going to the nats we are a club and stand together irrespective of what car we run.

Im fortunate to have 2 supporting rc families,this G4S family and my DMCC Club family.

Finished my mugen stabilizer conversion.
Using a 2.2mm bar.
Gansei see you using a 2.1mm bar in the pics from Kawahara Cup is that because you needed a softer setup ???

Med/High traction track what would be a good starting point ,the 2.2mm or a 2.4mm ???

i used rear stebil 2.3mm in Kawahara Cup.

and i tested 2.5mm in 3 heat. But i did not like 2.5mm.. lap time was down.

i suggest 2.1mm ~ 2.3mm.

good grip -> 2.3mm

bad grip -> 2.1mm


razzor... your G4S's Twin muffler is cool!!!! ^^

Ok Duh It's been too long since I put the UFO together. The manual has a typo so it's useless. The thrust bearing outer races have center holes of 5.2mm & 5.0mm which one goes on which side? The manual says inside for both LOL
