okok, only now i realise that there is performance gain for the speed shot front. will try to get a set.

Sorry to hear about your battery dumping on you. Hope the fail safe kicked in. Which lipo are you using? I'm still on 1100 mah TM pack. How does your lipo compare to the regular pack as far as run times, frequency of charge, and weight?

Was the track a bit dusty or loose? I also have to go down to 1.2 springs in the rear for loose conditions. It would have been a great win for your first time out with the +

now its the day after, i have had a bit of time to look over the car. firstly the Li-Po is a LRP 1500mah, it lasted all day and some last time with the G4S no problems. i basically swapped the radio tray over into the G4+ so the same setup was used as far as servos and stuff.
so while i removed the radio tray today, i wanted to look over the car and check some things out. first thing i noticed, the carbon plate screw where the side belt tensioner is came loose, and the carbon plate was twisting, the belt tensioner was not square as a result. secondly i found out why the Li-Po drained so fast this time. while setting up the steering when building it, the steering was tight on the ball cups, but i didnt think it was that bad. i couldnt turn the steering with ease , and it was getting harder and harder when off center. so this loaded up the steering servo and therefore the current drain was obviously higher than it ever will be again. it was very hard to turn by hand. credit to the Sanwa servos to actually center correctly every time, with such load.
now to the rear of the car. the rear universals, when pushing down on the car at the rear, were pushing all the way then stopping fulley pressed in to the diff cups. one thing i noticed with the G4+ kit is the missing shim on the axle before the bearing. the pins didnt look good where they sat with the uni's in the short position, looked like it would put too much load on the diff cup so close to the outer end of the cup. so i made them longer by pin position and i think the diff moved on an impact slightly one way. so when i pushed down on the suspension at the rear, the front left wheel came off the ground by a lot. also the suspension got really stiff at this point, and it wouldnt bottom out on the table. so with all these faults (my own ) i still managed to better my own 5 min qualifying time by 3 seconds + and a PB fastest lap of 16.670. so im hoping the car wil be better again next time out.
and i will check to see if the Li-Po run time gets back to normal now. i can only imagine the force and power needed for the steering servo to work with the forces of racing, not only how hard it was to turn just by hand when the car was off the ground even.
WOW sorry for the long post guys
