The ones i have are 2.5-2.7. I guess the production ones were changed to 2.5-2.8. So that would be the ones you would have to get.

Interesting, the available items are either 2.3-2.6 (kit) or 2.5-2.8 so they must have changed their plans.

So if we can just have some 2.7-3.0's that would be great

First day with the t4 and I set a personal hot lap and, in practice, was running consistenly .5 of a second quicker than i was with my t3 11.

Went up to 450 oil in the shocks and one step stiffer on the progessive rear springs.

Kit setup (apart from 2k in the diff) felt kind of lazy. On my last run, when the car felt its best, I used -.75 rear hexes and 2.5 rear and 2.0 front camber.

The car is really good but still a bit numb...thinking linear springs all around would help this but, our current layout has a few quick chicanes but, on a more open, flowing layout the setup I ended up with today would be better.

I still feel like I should talk up the new car. Set track records today (modified) in all but 1 heat (30 run tires dont equate to consistancy). I didn't do this by setting fastest lap (did set fast lap every run), I did it from consistency of a car that is super easy to drive while still being fast. After my first run, I had 3 people come up to me saying they now plan on buying the T4 and one guy straight up went in and bought one off the shelf after seeing the possibilities. If anyone is thinking that our track record doesn't mean anything, I shall point out that this is against a multi-national champion, snowbirds winner, and Vegas Tq modified driver. Car is legit, and has made our fairly low traction track seem easy to drive and honestly has made racing fun again for myself.

If anyone has any questions about the car, I can sure answer them or find someone that does. Just pm me.

Do you guys change the T4 rollers every year? I bought a 2010 T4 Chassis because my friend changes his T4 every year. What's the different anyways? The roller to its previous year?

I have a setup question. I am getting a huge push when I hit the brakes. If I go easy ans smooth into the corner it handles good but I get hit from behind as everyone else at out track is point and shoot so I have to adjust.

When I hit the brakes late in the turn the car pushes and just slides forward. Trouble is, sometimes the rear end will completely break loose as well! Very confusing!

Our track is tiny! 25'x55

I am running a stock carpet setup for now.
