Yes, the holes for the mounting screws are the same distance apart and the Tekno chassis is flat, no turned up edges. The Tekno mudguards are pretty much a straight up design. They don't bow out to the side much.[/QUOTE]

Thanks kufman. good to know, will have to pick up a set.

No. The tekno chassis is much narrower.

No, the Tekno chassis is narrower as said above and the front corners of the chassis are pushed forward compared to the stock chassis.

Thumbs up Setup changes based on new chassis

For those who are successfully racing this setup- can you share your info.

Springs/shock oil, wheelbase position , diff oil etc.

Naturally the lengthened chassis will create more on power steering in addition to the improved chassis layout(more forward weight).
The only things I can think about from the start would be to increase front shock oil to 40w (1.3x8 pistons) and 35 in the rear.

Lower front diff oil to 7k with 3k in the rear. Thinking about the rear, maybe soften up to black springs with a thicker 2.8 sway bar.

First time at the track this weekend with this chassis, now if I can get new arms and towers (just like everyone else wants).

Thanks for any feedback.

I just got my V4 together. I am not a fan at all of how close the esc sits to the pinion gear. I am going to fabricate a ESC mount that sits where the brake servo would go and mount my esc there. Other than that I like the slimmer profile of the car. I have a Proline Slipstream body on the way. I have always liked that body and from what I have seen its a good fit.

Here are a couple pictures of the rig. Ill post up pictures of the esc mount later this evening.

Here is a picture of just the mount. Its made from 2mm aluminum, I tapped the screw holes on the bottom so it mounts directly to the chassis via the screw holes that were made for the servo. I painted it plack when it was all done.
