Can you explain how you modified you clutch/pinion bell set-up to fit G4s. What parts were used?

Good to see the F430 back on your avatar asw. On holiday I found a 2 sq metre shop off Poppies Lane ( off Legian ) with a used G4S for sale with other bits and pieces.

Regards,Mark
the FEMCA 2008 will not be opened in jakarta.

it is high possibility that FEMCA 2008 will be opened in malaysia
(it is my quess ^^)

and.. i did not see asw 7576's F430.. and he did not ride F430 me!!!

See there is a UFO2 upgrade kit that will be available too K14137-1
From the photo it looks to just be an update to an ED clutch bell and their yellow spring.

With the UFO already being the best clutch on the market I wouldn't expect a significant change.

i changed shock spring, shock position, width, toe-in, camber.. etc on..

But car activity was not changed.

maybe.. too hot ground temperature disregard the car setting.

so i changed tire degree and test it.. (unbalanced setting)

then.. my g4s go well...

i record my best lap in that circuit.. 16.874 sec.

i record number one best lap among korean RC Driver in today.

the 2nd best lap driver is NT1(Mr Goo) 16.965 sec.

(he is winner the recent korea serpent cup. i did not join the race for FEMCA sequela ^^;;

Very good gansei.

By "tire degree" do you mean "tire shore"?? If so, what tire shore did you start off with and what tire shore did you change to??

I used the spektrum micro and found it be much more reliable than the std pro receiver. I have since switched to Futaba FASST due to module failures but never had a problem with the micro receiver.

I am using the Pro recivers as i was warned against using the grey coloured ones and also not to try the micr reciever by a lot of off road guys.They swear the pro reciever is more reliable.
Being that i ru stick i have only teh Spektrum option at the moment untill i can get my hands on the new Sanway system for my Super EXZES stick radio.

yes tire shore!!

i started front 40, rear 40.. and tested front 37, rear 37..

But my G4S had much understeer in cornering.

i changed many setup to lose rear grip(Traction)

But rear grip did not lose..

when i turn max steering and full Thorttle..

My G4S did not spin turn........... --;;;


so i changed front 37 rear 40.... then.. understeer was solved.

i learn tire setup is very important and tire effect is big!!!

i made a hole on serpent hole.. and tested it..

But serpent clutch shoe weared unbalanced..
(maybe i made a hole wrong)


UFO G4S clutch had problem in shoe..

the shoe was very thin against serpent,mugen one.

so G4S shoe's life is too short (about 2-3 weeks.. of course my standard)


i know as UFO2 solved the shoe problem.

But it did not released yet..

so i will test Knack Clutch System(MTX-4) in this weekend.

Yes I use the SR3500 Receiver.
I use it along with the Pro module.

I do still use the 'Pro' receiver too in the spare car. Funnily enough I'm putting the pro receiver in the race car as I've had some........"confidence" issues with the SR3500.

What I mean is, occasionally when you turn on the SR3500, ie the car. It does not communicate? Other times it takes maybe 10 seconds to link up with the transmitter before I have control?
Although once the SR3500 is in communication with the transmitter, I don't have any problems!!?

It's only when I first switch the car on (power up the receiver) that I see this. It's strange. I have tried re-binding the SR3500, but does not seam to make a difference.

What probs' have you had?
By the way. This SR3500 was one SPEKTRUM sent me to replace the one I bought which would not communicate over 300mm (Yes, 300mm !!) away from the car?

So now I have the Pro receiver in my race car and the SR3500 in the spare car. More confidence than anything else.
