Hey Darkseid,

Are you racing soon? Do you need them quick like?
The reason why I am asking is that I know Sam at Raceday is expecting a shipment in very soon (I'm presuming he is getting more rear arms in?!)

But if you need them now, I have a set you can have! Just order a set from Sam and have him send them to me. Pm me your address if this helps you.

I'm not racing again until 16/17 June so I'm not desperate.......yet?!.....lol

Hope this helps out.

Sam has a shipment that should have arrived already.He will have the new flying wing type a-arms in stock too.
Sam has the best rep on this thread so wouldnt doubt him or his service.

So all I can do now is hope that rc-mushroom is quality. I've never ordered from them before, so <fingers crossed> everything will go well.

i've used rc mushroom before lot's of time's..there stuff is top notch..just don't be in a hurry for shipment...there alittle slow...but dependable...

I'm going with the GQ's Frankie.
They do come in that 'Love them or hate them' orange rim but they're nice and stiff rimmed and the rubber's good too.

I just wanted to tell anyone considering buying this car to do it. I have had 4 race weekends on it and have yet to break a part. It is very adaptable to different conditions and handles like a dream. It easily handles all that my IDM Evo 3 can throw at it.

It puts out some awesome power. Heaps of torque and probably the fastest at the top end of all the others at my club as well. I am using the skyline VR+ pipe right now as I am on a small tight technical track. I would love to test it out on a big flowing track.

Default knuckle arm test.

i tested my G4S in korea local circuit.

i changed my front knuckle arm by G4S'one.

and rear knuckle arm is also G4+ knuckle arm.

But i changed rear wheel hub by NT1's
(NT1 wheel hub is thinner than G4S's)

and.. i run my G4S... and i feel very good like before My G4S..

also i feel more rear grip than before my G4S setup.



finally...

the effect of change G4+ knuckle arm will be front sus arm length grows longer

and rear sus arm length will be short compare with G4S knuckle arm.

(sus arm length = between sus pin and kingpin head)


so understeer will be occured by front susarm grow longer.. (you can it feel like mild)

rear is quick.. But some unstable by rear sus arm shorter.

ill take note of that Gansei although at our practice yesterday i experienced the opposite.
Far too much steering and a loose back end.
Might have beed due to the track being resurfaced but will rebuild car to manual settings and start fine tuning from there again.

Well, I used to say the same thing but then again futureal does a great job on RCtech and it takes some effort to keep the server, bandwidth going etc. I also see that he does not limit as to what you can write in your sig previously and people were promoting sales though it, or even promoting websites (like me). I think $2.99 a month is OK although I am guilty of not paying because I feel that we complement each other RCTech-me-3hobby.net and all of you. Just my 2 cents
