Davin, I run down at Harbor with Blake, Paul, Snowy et al so I did hear about the efforts on your car. Man, I feel for you. The T4 is a pretty darn good, wish you were enjoying it.

Is there any way your top deck could be cracked or delaminated, allowing the chassis to flex too much? I'm guessing you checked that but..

Justin, good luck to you and Matt at the Hudy event!

I got my T4 together, and I'm impressed. I re-oiled the bearings before installing them ( didn't need it ), and I'm amazed in how free the drivetrain spins without even being broken in yet. I have the carpet setup on it now and I have sets of 2.7s, 2.3-2.6s, and 2.5-2.8s for tuning today. I also have a pile of different spur gears in case I didn't assemble the motor mounts correctly.

With VTA 25.5 with a 3.58fdr speeds, do yall think I may want to try the progressive springs on the front?

Top deck is fine. I wish I was enjoying it as well. I have loved every Xray I have ever owned. But this is starting to get the best of me.

Davin, I will send you a T3 2011, and 2012 for your T4, plus all my T3 specific parts. At this point I want to see your car and see what is going on.

So did you fix your stripped out motor endbell so that you can run 2 motor screws or are you still trying to only run 1. Be honest now???

Yes I did. I would not be so frustrated right now if that was the case. I received 2 brand new end bells from EA this week. Bryon Ehlert stripped a gear as well yesterday. When mine went bad The motor had not moved one bit and the screws were tight enough that I almost stripped the head on on while taking it out.

that would make me check to see if these part numbers are bent?

303054
303053

when you flex the chassis in your hands, what does the motor/pinion do in relation to the spur?

The only other thing I saw that you guys have in commen that I have never seen anybody else do is putting your cars in a refrigerator after you run.
Everybody here in St Louis that is running a T4 from usgt class to mod kids to adults and not one stripped gear.

That was more of a joke than anything else I don't always do that. Im glad everyone else is having good luck .

I think from here Im just gonna drop it because I get the feeling people just want to make me out to be a hack who doesn't know what he's doing. It's not fair for either party involved. Hopefully I can get a trade worked out for a decent 2012 and start to enjoy myself again

Thanks for all the input guys
