For stock racing, have a look at the TD4-4 conversion for the older style 410s from MrO Racing in the UK, that's around 250grams lighter then the std car.

Looked really good first time out on Sunday.

I'm afraid the best I can say, is have a look on Facebook.

I just did a Google, and it didn't show any results bar Facebook, which is odd, as I know he has a site.

I'd imagine they are referring to the 2-way slipper, it's listed as an option part.

On average lap times are 2-5 sec slower than Mod, smaller the track the difference gets closer.

Your worst enemy is Motor temps in 4wd Stock 40mm Fan pointed at the motor is the best way.

When I ran my v3 in Stock, i had a 8 racing carbon chassis and a shorty battery that got me down into the 1650g range and I also had a 25mm fan wedged in but it was always a temperature battle, especially in Australia where we can get ambient temps of 30+deg C.

This is the shell off photo. It's the prototype and it's rough around the edges as the design has changed a bit.
The chassis is 112mm wide (at its widest point) and a weight of 1684g.

Ekt, thats a pritty nice track too!
The track i was running in the past, was like simular, but they put concrete all over the track (for less maintaince), exapt on some jumps, so when you crash hard, something brake for sure...
I have to find a new track, as my driving is not that good, so it get to expansive for me on this track!

Looks interesting and very strong wonder what it will be like on our dirt tracks which can get blown out and rutted

I really like my v4 I just got it not long ago. It was a pain to setup at first ended up scraping the mounting pad for ESC/receiver. I have only ran it on carpet but with the slipper pretty tight it has handled it well. It didn't take much to crack the front shock tower I'd like too see aluminum towers. Does the v5 come with the aluminum servo saver in the box?

If you CA the carbon towers and the. Run washers behind the nuts for the ball studs it keeps the tower from breaking. Mine have lasted a lot longer after doing that. Also, I don't think it will come with the aluminum servo arm but if you have one for the V4 it should drop in.

The kit page and manual says it does.
