Dario and TM G4S are shown again to be the best of the best! The G4S is one of the best competition cars on the market today. Just for fun racing at your local club or top level racing, the G4S is always there to make everyone look good and have fun!

Congrats to Dario!!

Hi,

First, Team Magic owes this win to TecroTec, Juanito Hidalgo and his father, they got their car working very well, I copied it for the 4th Qualy, then Dario copied it for the finals....

That was a tough week ! I think the biggest problem was the changing track temp, which changed the grip all the time.....meaning running at different times resulted in different lap times, some cars were good in the heat others in the cooler mornings...

It was a real struggle to get a consistent car, but we should have looked at the other cars before. To qualify 5th was good but we should have been in the top 4, just held up for a couple of laps !! So that meant a semi, which was fine, but a had a cut on the start line which meant, i lost almost a lap and that was that really....

The final was a great race, and Dario's car was perfect, Oscar was very unlucky to run out of fuel and have another cut (I think).

Thanks for letting us know how things went for you Daz. Could you comment please on what if anything was the key to the setup, or was it a lot of small changes?

Looks like local knowledge has gone a long way in such conditions.

Any chance of posting a setup?

thanks for the feed back Muppet
In racing you win some and you lose some but all in all you guys did a good job.
Juanito Hidalgo was also reasonably fast as well as a few other TM guys.
Great to see the guys sharing there info and setup

Look forward to the setup and any other comments you think we should take note of.

while im sure everyone is after a setup from the Euros, it sounds like it was a very hard week of racing, im sure they will post something soon, but lets give a bit of time for the recovery after such an event.

just on a different subject now, i had the smallest kiss of a wall on sunday, it resulted in a snapped front upper arm and cracked rear hub. now im not sure on the hub being done at the same time, but the arm just clean snapped. i know of another having trouble with the new arms breaking. seems the plastic is very brittle, where it has broken, the plastic looks grainy almost too hardened. this would have to be the first things i have broken in 6 months of racing. it was really the smallest of touches , just concerns me. anyone else had breakage issues ?

Looking at your pic it looks as though there were some air bubbles in that arm when it was made. That would certainly weaken it.

Looks like this wasnt a good weekend for Spektrum. During final, spektrum glitch happened several times, luckily, only pvc pipes where hit, not a wall...
Finally found what seems to be a reason for spectrum problems i was having lately.
Gansei, suggest you to check your antenna as well : )

Hi guys, i took my car to its first professional track last week and I was doing great, only thing was my rear of the car bounces way too much, like around turns I get hundreds of tiny hops and I start to lose traction.

also my first lap after a cool down I could always grip 100% after that first lap I always started slipping more and more.

anyways my question is how do I fix this?

I was running completely stock out of the manual except for the height I was at 5.5mm rear 5mm front, and I was running 37 shore all around but kawahara fronts and GRP devil tires rear.
