Default RC-Alan....and your advice

Alan............You don't own the G4S . Anything you say about set-up is hearsay, and not from your own practical experience racing it. You smile at people and wish them well, and then you snipe at them with your comments when they disagree with your opinions about something you don't own. I don't go on the Kyosho forum and pretend I know how to set it up. Alan.....talking to other people is not the same as racing it or owning one. If you wanna help with the G4S great. Go get one. Race it......and contribute in a helpful informed manner.

RayJ... Again I don't know you, but I'm sure if you show to the Nats. you'll meet me. It does not take a genius to understand the G4S... I've seen the G4S and drove the car... I've had both the Mongoose and the E-Class 2 each... I've had the car for the better part of 3 years... Helped RD-Logics at the last RCX in support of the Mongoose... Gave much feedback and shared my thoughts with Nickko from TM as well... What makes you think I don't know the car??? I know the car. Period. You know that Bell crank steering system that's in the G4S... That idea was around for the better part of 3 years... I to had a working proto type put together 2 years ago and I showed it to RD-Logics back then... I posted the pics on the old E-Class thread... As well as Web-shots... http://www.webshots.com/search?query=rc_alan&start=40
Thanks Data... That update was a long time coming and I'm happy TM got it right with the G4S... I know the car better then you think... Much better... Please don't tell me I haven't contibuted to the G4 family... I've done more then my share to help TM and everyone involved... I can bash and talk $#%@ but I won't. I don't have time for this $#%&... Get your setup and gearing correct... And like I said that 18/23 clutch gearing ain't gonna work at CP... I see my postings make you unhappy... Well, to bad... I post to give honest help and feed back... To the contrary, I've gotten nothing but thanks yous and thumbs up... I've never got a post or a PM from someone saying the info I shared was bad or it didn't help them... Put your damn car on the track and race it... You need to contribute to this thread like you have some sinse. Get a life... Hey It's your world... If you want to talk Man to Man... You know where to find me.

Phenix Distribution would like to welcome Bobby Flack former Kyosho driver to the G4S Team. Bobby won the first midwest series race running a RRR. He put his G4S car together this week and Tq'd and won the Toledo club race 2. G4S finished 1,2,3 Bobby, Ray, Brian. We have one more tune up club race before midwest series race 2 in toledo on the 7th then on to the nats.

I ran my G4s again last sunday (second race meeting). This time I used a bone stock novarossi S3 that I bought second hand last year.

I broke my personal 5 min qualifying record. I was able to make 18 laps in 5:06 and I also broke my personal lap record whch is now 16.3 seconds.

So I ended up 2nd fastest qualifier and was 1.6 seconds off the TQ. In the final I ended up with engine problems and lost some laps so I finished 5th.

I am feelin the love for the G4s!!

Cheers,

Mike.
