toe front +1
camber front -2
toe rear -2.5
camber rear -4

ride height front/rear 5mm/5.5mm

too bad weather has been crap here and I cant test how well the car grips up.

I also added a new futuba S9451 digital/coreless since last time I drove it so lets see how this handles.

It looks radical, very different. My instincts tell me its not right but I've never tried it so it'll be interesting to see your report when you use it for your next race.

Hi rmd'

There is a small 'flange' that the pressure plate/ clutch pad sits in.
It is this flange, the thickness of the plate that Gansei and Daz are talking about. Stock, they are around 1.7mm thick. If you cut this down to 1.2 it will increase the amount of wear the pad will take before replacement.

The new U.F.O 2 clutch on the G4+ comes with this mod already done

Hope I've explained this right.

Menace

Interesting setup Gansei ,let us know how it works.
Only ???!!! i have with it is that you using so much end play .3mm.
I usually shim under the inner bearing till bell binds a little bit and then remove a .1mm shim and then check it spins freely.Too much end play damages the thrust bearing from what ive been told and to date that has never happened to me.

Thats what i was thinking but lets see what Gansei thinks.
I also think it makes the gear engagement a bit harsher.

"Too much end play damages the thrust bearing "
=> never.. it is a only formulas theory.

i already tested the clutch setup before 1 month.

But there are no the thrust bearing DIE!!!!

my Best lap was 16.92x in Kirina circuit

But after change clutch setup.. i recorded new best lap '16.8xx'

of course, i can't say the reason clutch setup was great!

But i feel more driving force after changing clutch setup.

i will test it more...

and.. i heard from japanese Driver in recent days.

that japanese driver favor to setup clutch to meet early like my setup ^^

Default NEW TIP

i changed ED Brake system By M1B Brake Disk.

ED Brake Holder easily be dig(damaged) by hard Braking.
(i already changed new two Brake holder!)

But M1B Brake Disk reached area is wider than G4S's one.

※ if you try it, you must cut brake pad holder (left one, near to brake pully)
because brake pad hoder little touched with brake disk.
