yeah.. that's a lot of difference per lap. with the same engine and pipe some more. frankly speaking, if u see result attached, none of the two [email protected] finish the race.both having locked 1-way bearing (1st speed housing).. if TM fix this problem in the next version, i wont hesitate buying one.

FYI it has been fixed. TM changed the source of the oneway bearings and if you look at the G4RS 09 thread, those of us with new oneway bearings are not having any problems .

Please note that all Machinaria kits come with the new oneway bearing.

its a well known issue. the chassis plate it self is very weak against torsional stress. if u twist flat, it would end up the same. that's why TM comes up with a solution. G4WC option chassis package!!. its a costly upgrade but with this upgrade is getting u closer to G4+evo.
some even opt to A+C side brace + alum servo mount just to get extra strength. it works too but not for long.

Thanks for the info. Kind a bummer that the stock chassis can't stand up to normal racing. The car is fast, but things like this certainly detract.

Separate question: will any non-kfactory clutch shoes work in the UFO2. I need the grey shoe for this weekend and I haven't been able to get any info from wolfhobbies on the order I placed last week.
