before my wheel base setup: front 2mm reduced, rear 2mm reduced
current(g4+) my wheel base setup: front no reduced, rear 2.5mm reduced.

and i put rear sus arm in inner bulk position.

-> this will effect like long rear sus arm acts

rear bracket drilled hole was lightweight mod (done 2-3 month ago)

But could not feel difference.. just fun mod.. too bored..

Hi gansei,

From your pictures, a few ideas for you.....

1. Top rear link, have you tried using the original kit plastic part (at the bulkhead end), depending on your track, it may be worth trying.....

2. Front carbon stiffener, this is very stiff, compared to the original kit parts. I like a little more flex, so I remove most of the thick carbon square on the bottom. To see if you would like this, you can try running the car without the 2 screws that attatch the carbon stiffener to the front bulkhead.

Good Luck.

thanks for your advice..

i will try number 2 advice.

But number 1 advice.. i could not understand exactly..

is it rear upper arm you mean?

original kit plastic part only adapted stock rear knucle arm.

But i am using G4+ rear knucle arm. (i buy and put it in my g4s one month ago)

As i have mentioned before, i shop overseas because, we have tried to support local hobby shops, but in time they are either slack, say they cant get or just not interested in making money!

No wonder why the internet market does so well, its either a massive warehouse, or a dedicated supporter of the product!!!!

Anyways i hope it updates in time, thou its great to see the G4+ land in AUS, funny enough i have a cross breed now LOL
At least you can call them in Aus and at a sensible time too - And yes they have all the parts on the shelf as the owner races a G4S himself. As for RC Mart - Good luck there, have you seen their thread?

Anyhow, back to the goodness of the G4S and G4+.
