hey try the steel pinions they have worked great for me the aluminium ones that I used before just wear to quickly,
also update: I ran 4x5min qualies last night with a 20min main and did all of the above with preventing stripping of spurs gears and my gears on the RS ran perfect, I made sure I put a good amount of locktight on the engine mount screws as I run a one piece and not one sign of movement even after a fews spills here and there.
thanks for the support guys
cheers

try a softer tire for the rear or a harder tire for front for a start.
then maybe you could try laying down yr rear shocks more or stand yr front shocks up more.

anything else think you've got to let us know what's yr car setup.

YEs. I would deffinately try softer tires first. Especially if your on a parking lot track. Try 40 or even 38 Shore tires all round. You may be set up too stiff too. If your running stock shock piston hole sizes, you need to be around the 40 WT mark. -3 degrees camber and -3 degrees toe in too at the rear is a goos starting point. If your on a bumpy track, go with 5mm front and 6mm ride hight at the rear. Smoother tracks you can go a little lower.

Also. Is your clutch set too aggressive? Do you put the power on when you go around the corner? And thats whu your rear is comming around.

Make sure your suspention is free when you disconnect your shocks. The arms must be smooth and free from binding.

Lastly. Make sure your droop screws are not set too high.
When your car is ready to race. Place the car on the floor (or set up table) and raise the rear of the car, slowly. The car should rise around 3 to 4mm BEFORE the tires come of the ground!
The front should be slightly less around 2mm.

Try this and see how you get on.

The latest batch of G4RS come with a different version of the UFO2 clutch, it is more like the older "push type" clutch ( just like a Kyosho 3D clutch with the 3 flyweights, does away with that "heavy" aluminum housing )

Here are the Teflon version of the same flyweights http://www.kfactoryracing.com/produc...33-8&pageNum=1

At the moment, I am using these with the weight in ( only 1 hole in these ) with the red shoe, crf spring and the same gaps as socko.

No more uneven wear and the shoes seem to last longer

I would think;

www.wolfhobbies.com
www.rcmanufactory.com

One of them should be able to sort you out.

I hope your testing goes well
