As I guess this will be the go to thread for 4XS tech advice please may I introduce myself.

I have been a Carisma Works Team driver for several years campaigning the Carisma Mini Buggies and I am proud to have been part of the R&D Team working on this car in the UK alongside my team mate Phil Sleigh.

We have had the prototype cars for over a year and in that time we have learned many tricks and tips about how to build the car and make the most of this fantastic package.

Most of these tips and tricks have been fed back to the factory and will appear in press releases from the factory but I am sure there is lots still we can offer.

If anyone has anything they want to ask please fire away, the Carisma team is a tight family and we will be following this thread closely to offer the best advice we can.

Hi guys
I am running this car in Australia, I recently attended the Colman Cup held at Knox Victoria where some of the best drivers in the state raced.
In the qualifying the car was on the box setup with the center diff having 80k diff oil instead of 100k.
I managed to qualify 7th, During the break period I changed the front camber links 1 up for more steering and put some flat counter sunk washers on the top deck to give more flex.
In the finals the car was great
1st Final 4th
2nd final 3rd
3rd final dnf sensor wire failure. I managed to finish 5th overall not bad for the cars first outing.
I would recommend this car the quality is great. The car is strong had a few crashes in the warm up no breakages and the price point is right.
Amy questions on setup or build tips please feel free to PM me and I will endeavour to reply

Subscribed. Although I am already sold on the YZ-4, this car is a well designed piece of kit and I hope to see many of them on our tracks in the future!

We took our 4XS to our local dirt track in HK and had an initial shakedown.

We mounted Proline Holeshot tires

out of curiosity why did you go with 5x1.4 mm shock pistons, I have never seen this on a 1/10 scale off road car....

I don't know why this was chosen, but from my observation the piston has a tighter fit inside the shock bore, allowing less oil to flow around the sides of the piston. On the bench the damping feels correct.

I liked the six-hole pistons in my B-Max, the four-hole pistons in my RT-6 not so much. Currently I am running two-hole pistons in all my Yokomo cars and AE trucks, while others are digging their three-hole pistons... I guess individual piston set-ups work better on specific tracks, depending on how bumpy the surface is and how many/big jumps there are.
IIRC the more holes the more pack, but I might be wrong...
