I have been using the older G4 2 speed clutch springs they are a bit stiffer tahn teh ones that came in the first kits.I believe the later kits have a stiffer spring.

Gansei once again you showed the guys that you are very capable with the results you achieved.This too with car that was lacking from your crash last week.
You da man

As for me .i just got in from a 5 hour drive after finishing the nationals.
Had a awesome weekend even though I had a some engine troubles and lack of track time.
arrived at nats on Friday at midday and started prepping car and getting batteries etc. charged.
They had controlled practice and only managed 2 tanks of practice.
Lucky enough my setup was good with a little understeer in corners and oversteer out of corners.Decided to run a front spool instead of diff up front seeing Muppet/Daz has been using it.
Ran 42F and 40r tyres and car was very good.

In qualifiers yesterday i got a good run on the board with a 3rd place in my heat with 23rd overall.
Things started falling apart in the 2nd and 3rd heat as i had my engine stall waiting for the start of my races and had to start from pitlane.
Before 4th and final heat i added a shim to my engine and did a quick retune and had a awesome final run but was hampered by traffic.I was stuck behind a slower car but was not going to take a chance pushing past him as i wanted a good finish ,in hind sight i should have pushed as i missed a 15 lapper by .1sec which would have placed me in Bmains but settled for 8th is Cmains.There was just over 3 seconds seperating 9 guys ,that was close racing.

In my main i got a good start and got up to 2nd on the start and then had a guy rear end me ,dropped me back to 7th.
Made up places and took 1st place after 10min mark and was steady pulling a lead untill i made a stupid mistake trying to pass a back marker.I took a tighter line into the main straight and clipped the apex flipping on my roof.
The marshall got me back on the track qiuck enough but had ripped my rear wing off on one side and the car was a handfull to drive.managed to keep going till next pit stop dropping down to 3rd by now and shouted for my pit guy to pull wing off.This was my biggest mistake ,as i entered the back staright the backend started whipping and i hit teh side pipes ripping off the left rear a-arm.

All in all I had teh car dialled but made one mistake too many that cost the race
Am chuffed though as I had the car running awesome
So on to my next club meet ..........

Well done razzor, sounds like you had a handle on things later in the meeting. Maybe you'll have to go to the next nationals race a day earlier to be a day ahead of where you were at this meeting.

Good to see you getting on with the car so well.

G4s Static Weight Distribution

What is the ideal static weight distribution of the G4s mine is 550gr front left and rear right and around 230gr on the front right and rear left. is this correct?

Well, "Ideal" would be 475g each rear, 400g each front. But hard to obtain.
More likely 500g rear, 375g front is a good target.

May I ask how you are measuring the static weights?

my engine is Novarossi LS3 3port.

because engine did not have enough pressure.. so high speed is good.

and i throttle off lately in back straight end point than other driver.

so strong brake and unchanged braking is very important to me.

so i always maintain brake system carefully.


But torque is very poor... i quess it may be muffler problem.

meike muffler's torque feel was very good..

but it was died in serpent cup.. so i changed novarossi muffler (EFRA-2630)

i could not complete engine setting and car setting.

so i must setup my car,engine during the race.

I had the same problem last season with my spektrum system, one other thing you need to watch out for is fuel spillage getting inside the case. Although the claim the new Pro receivers are fuel proof they will short out if any fuel seeps into the connector. You may want to look at switching to the mico receivers since it only uses 1 pcb and is small enough too tuck under the splash guard well out of reach of any fuel.


If you continue to have problems check your transmitter module, I have had 2 Pro modules fail in the last six months.

First, I use ballons ( two ) to cover the receiver, and zip ties it.

Second, I use Muchmore stick pack battery shrink wrap to wrap the receiver into the ( gawddamn ) radio tray. I don't use the another cover ( L shape ) coz they won't fit in my car.

I also cut 2mm on the very top of the radio tray ( screw holes ), so the tray will be positioned slightly higher than chassis.

The radio tray design in G4S is not user friendly
