It's fine. Never had problems with the spur and I race mod indoors (4.5T).

I don't understand why people use this car for vta. It's like using a Ferrari for oval racing. But if they want to spend their money that's fine.

T4 #2 is on its way, I can't wait!!! Nothing like having a car together just in time to throw it on the track at a large race.

Ideally sand it with 300-600 grit sandpaper, then 1200 grit and seal with glue.

Wet sand it using some soapy water and wet/dry sandpaper. THen clean the chassis and allow to dry before gluing.

Yep, but I have never sanded my chassis, just seal it with CA glue and never had any trouble.

It'll depend on the person and the surface I guess. I know guys who have had their chassis split layers. I've had a layer chip on a chassis before. You seal the chassis with CA to try keep the layers bonded together. You sand the edges so it doesn't "bite" into the asphalt and split/chip a layer.

It isn't necessary but it is preventative just in case.

I used the method shown on the CRC site, with 320 grit emory cloth and backed it up with 1000 grit paper, rolled the CA on with a Qtip, then smoothed it out with 1500 grit paper. Total time spent was about an hour, but it looks factory, perfectly rounded and smooth.

Here is a link that was given a few pages ago and the one that I used
http://www.teamcrc.com/crc/modules.p...rder=0&thold=0

Anyone running XRay graphite arms on their T4? What changes in handling ( if any ) will the graphite arms do over the factory "H" arms? I have them on my T3'12, but I bought it with them already installed so I don't know how it acted with factorys on it.

Tore the car car down to kit form this week and put back together. Whatever bug was in it seems to have gone away (I Hope) . Thanks to everyone for the help as well as the criticism. Believe it or not both were taken in the best way. I was able to get a good baseline tune in it today and am happy to report all was done on the same spur gear. I am truly sorry for my hostility in previous post's. But I don't think you can fathom how ridiculous it all seemed to me. Thanks again to all of you that chimed in .
