No, on the contrary, nice that you found a way around the "bug" in my
previous update (I had forgotten that Rolf actually already put
QuarkGluonVertex in FeynCalc) The newest update should however work nicely
as illustrated by the notebook attached to my previous post

W.r.t. Gstrong it's just a typo of mine. In the original FeynArts model
file "SMQCD.mod" the symbol GS is used; but this symbol is already in use
by FeynCalc, so FAPatch changes it to GStrong; I've changed that to Gstrong
now (not that it's all that important).

Notice that what you see as k1 (with "Default Output Format Type" set to
"TraditionalForm" - done automatically on loading FeynCalc) is actually
FourMomentum[Outgoing, 1] (try FourMomentum[Outgoing, 1] // StandardForm).
That is, FeynArts keeps track of which particles are incoming and which are
outgoing. FeynCalc simply counts all particles as incoming. Therefore the
change of sign.

Hmm. So you tried out FeynmanParametrize1, FeynmanReduce and
FeynmanDoIntegrals... I added these functions some time ago and wanted to
develop them further, never had the time and didn't do much testing either.
They are really to be considered experimental at best. As long as you are
at one loop, why don't you just use OneLoop and get your amplitude in terms
of standard Passarino-Veltman functions? OneLoop is heavily tested by
both Rolf and myself.

I attach a notebook (an unfinished calculation) to show you in which
direction I was going with FeynmanParametrize1, FeynmanReduce and
FeynmanDoIntegrals. Notice that, as always, you can get information about
what's happening by setting $VeryVerbose to 1,2 or 3 instead of 0. Bug
reports, bug fixes and improvements are of course very welcome.
