Look at the picture again. It should be different. The ball joint for the throw should be in the middle now. So new steering.

There is an exploded diagram compare part numbers.

Those shocks are awesome well though out IMHO, much shorter but able to keep the same pack

Lowering the whole c of g will work wonders for corner speed, which I thought the xray's lacked this will do very good.

I pray the t4 13 will have proper pivot blocks I will pre order now. Motor mount, servo mount all quality, well done xray. This will be a weapon.

If i were to preorder the T4 from stormerhobbies would they charge my credit card right away or wait until my order shipped? I looked on their website, but i couldn't find this information.

Looking at the picture below, Xray may have left the door open (whether intentionally or unintentionally) to allow for a toe block style system to be used without having to convert to an aftermarket chassis. The new suspension mounting blocks already have enough room to span the bulkheads. So all it should take are some toe blocks designed to extend a bit further and capture the hingepins. I am sure if this is possible, there will be many aftermarket companies out there ready to knock out a design for this ASAP. Heck, if someone wanted to give me early access to a T4 I would be happy to fire up SolidWorks and get started on the design myself

I'm sure it will be a great car, but it's definitely more of an evolution than a revolution as was portrayed

Spool and diff's the same, new bearing holders to allow them to fit into the new narrower bulkheads

Quite... as is the norm, massively over-hyped. And seriously, with all that 'major R&D plan' they couldn't remove the nut holding the front of the motor mount with a bit of threaded alloy? come-on...

Why would you do that? U have no movement 1 fixed position for the screw with a nut less chance of tweak?

I think you'll see a massive improvement with the shocks in all honesty.
