Pm me your email adress and i will send you the G4s manual. It has the basic set up in there with set up sheets. Should be a good starting point

What wheel base are you guys running? I just measured 260mm but not sure if it's shorter or longer to what you guys use. It's just a starting point for a small track. Any help/tips appreciated.

I ran the shortest setting and I don't think that I will ever look back. The car did every thing that I asked it to.

Could someone please give me a starting set up for a G4+, I suppose it's similar to a G4rs.....if you run the 4mm chassis

It's just feeling very stiff and heavy and it's not yet complete so i was wondering what i can do to compensate for having hardly/none chassis flex

Default G4s - spring setting

Good to see all G4 TM fan and driver. I new here and nw running with G4S. four year ago, this car so so popular at my country but i think now im the only one running this car at my local track. Need some advice from the expert out there.

I dont have much choice on spring setting for this car coz the shop does have much spare part for the moment, bt im still like to run this car... and advice for any spring that i can use for this G4S.

The car handles terribly ... it slides ans is twitchy ... I struggle driving it and I feel like I am all over the place when Im controlling it. On the straight, every single car overetakes me ...

I dont know where to start so please feel free to ask any questions that I can try and answer that will hopefully help you get a picture of what stage the car is in and recommended changes.

cheers

Same to me also, i think im alone running G4S now at my area, most people was changes to NT!, MTX4R and RRR. Need some setup adive to running this car.

personally i find that the stock g4s silver springs are quite good...

it'll be a good idea if you could post yr setup and also what type of track you're running at...

Here:

It says G4+, but if you see the dates they are about the time the Evo was in action. There's two for foam and two for rubber.

They say G4+ but when you open them up they are for a black magic.

Has anyone got a set up for a G4+ or a link to one???

In the G4rs manual it says to put 1 x 2mm or 2 x 1mm shims behind the front lower arms but i found i had to put a 1mm in front of the arm and a 2mm behind it. Have i done something wrong or does someone else have the same issue. It's the speedshot bulkhead with the flying wing arms. Any help would be great.

Cheers
