Has anyone raced at Lesiure Hours Raceway with a G4S yet? If so what kind of set-up works good?

Well guys, i went and ran in the WASP CRF today, after 5 tanks of fuel she has come on song rather well!!!

temps are only 205F but man has it got some power

Gotta say the indoor track that we tested on was rather short, but you still could hit 2nd gear half way then back off.

Also found it rather hard to point it straight as it wanted to step out side ways alot!!!!

Hopefull the weather clears up for tomorrows race at out outdoor track Littlehampton!

Looking forward to see what times i can lap with this monster!

New fuel is being used by Massive Mods 333 - good run time even thou its still pretty rich

well it has been too long, but one more round day out of the way , and then bring on the G4+. i hope its all ready for 1st of next month. just going through all my spares now, trying to sort out what i can keep and what i cant use anymore. then the G4S i will sell once the G4+ is racing, but i will be getting a 4mm non engraved chassis to run it, keep the special one with the certificate

the g4+ was ment to be the car with all the hopups
but in the g4+ kit, the middle pulley mount and the servo mount are plastic and they do a aluminum one, and no adjustable sterring akerman so to me they are hopups
so was tm trying to say on weight and no ceramis bearings either my2cents
apart from that a great car to build
cant wait to see it on the track but
