Any good running engine is fine.But the more you run and the faster you get ,your find that you may have to power up.I would run it until you fell that the motor is holding you back. just my 2 cents

I have posted D-man's setup with the added tips from Dennis on my website. I think that is easier to find and read for those that need it or want to refer back to the setup quickly.

Hi all,

just had our first national at mendip, and G4S won

the car ran real well all weekend, and the clutch and engine were perfect too.
all the G4S that were there looked good, you just needed a good engine too.
i will try and get the set up sheet posted on 3Hobby.

Great result Daz! Must have been the extra practice you got in OZ to blow out the cobwebs

Nice job Darren, more and more people switching over to the G4S in the US are telling us they are going just as fast or faster than they were with their RRR's. This is a good thing and shows the car does have what it takes once you find the sweet spot. The G4S version is also solid compared to the previous car which is even better.
