i dont quite understand Gansei what you are asking ?
the most noticable difference, (if thats the question) seems to be getting rear grip on lower traction tracks . and while the flying wing arms are more fragile, seems to be the new rear swaybar is the difference for lower traction tracks. while i went to the nationals, i did have that rear bar as hard as it could go, it was a very good tool for a VHT prepped track.
also there seems to be a lot less flex in the 4mm chassis, while the nylon front speedshot brace regains some of the loss of steering. the shocks are completely different also, alot harder to get the shocks right, as i think the bleed hole is too high and doesnt function properly, so its hard to get the shocks consistent. if you like a stiff chassis and braces, as the side trans braces are carbon and alloy, then traction will suffer a little on a lower traction track . but i tried some new things with the car a few weeks ago, was very happy with the results of playing around with the G4S shocks. less holes , heavier oils and hard springs, makes for a dynamic car, alot different to what i have been trying in the past.

Not all this is entirley accurate, some is interpretation too.

Geez Menace, took you long enough to chime in. Thought maybe you had a bitterness still with the all the BS going on. Wouldn't blame you one bit. I still can't get the taste out.
Mike B. sorry to hear about your crap too!! You are right, this is your living and I would hope that you would be treated with the respect that you deserve. The level that you are at you would think that professionalism by your sponsor or the "behind the scenes people" would be reciprocated. You pimp their product so you can put food on the table and presents under the tree and in return you get a big fat c ya and no $$. You deserve better.
A lesson for all of you looking for a sponsorship deal next year. If Mike B. a veteran ace with one of the best attitudes around didn't leave with a smile, what do you think you will depart with?
Just my opinion, it may suck, but it's still mine, they can't take that from me.

Default G4S / G4RS

Hey Gansei, you can now test the difference between the cars.
i dont have the G4S anymore so i cant tell you the difference the steering hubs make. i know they have less material to accept the quick release wheel system. the inserts used arent quite as strong as the G4S originals (one mould), but i dont know if any geometry has been change with them ? maybe you can test for me ?
