After thinking about it . I bet the 0 front camber was digging in in certain corners making my car feel loose ( cause sidewall was coming unglued) with new tires with med-high traction car was spot on with first set up

I am looking for some replacement wheel hexes for another make of touring car and I was wondering if someone can tell me what thickness the xray hexes are on the t4 (part number 305350-k) are they 4mm or 5mm?

Thanks in advance

Repaired my T4 with a new chassis and some other small parts and the car is back on rails. Drove it last weekend at our clubrace and finished 2nd. 2 seconds behind a former 1/8 nitro world championship finalist.

This may be a dumb question, but what exactly does the one piece rear suspension holder do. The description says it gives you more steering in high traction tracks. So does take traction from the rear, or give the rear more traction to push the front through a turn?

I think it in the end makes the rear of the car wider once u reset the toe thus taking away traction in the rear

I don't think it changes the width of the rear, it replaces the two roll center mounts with a solid piece. It must do something to effect chassis flex.

No, not correct.

The one piece block in the rear will take flex away. Not much flex is there to begin with, but it is now connected. you will still add spacers for track width and toe.

Default Found this nugget of info in the instruction manual....

"OPTIONAL: #302050-O -T4 Alu lower rear suspension holder - Orange.
For more steering, we recommend using the optional one piece alu suspension holder. For high grip conditions only, as it decreases rear traction."

Should have noticed this before, but didn't think about cause the part wasn't released when I got my kit.

Isn't this part same width as the rear one piece mount? If so it would widen rear track width. But if itsas narrow as the 2 piece mounts . I stand corrected its a flex tuning part

Ok another question, more like a poll. What bodies are you guys/gals running (speed6, ltcr, p37), light or regular weight, and why? Reason I am asking, when I first built my car and ran it the track is small, and the turns are real slow and the car is on rails. When I go to a larger track with faster turns the rear will break loose at times. I have been running a LTCR lightweight usually. Somebody mentioned a speed6 seems to keep grip on the rear better.

LTCR is a very 'pointy' shell, lots of steering. Great for tight technical tracks where you want your car to be a little more agressive in the front. Speed6 is (IMO) a more 'balanced' shell and sacrifices a bit of that front bite for a more stable rear which will help on faster, flowing tracks.

Regards,

Simon

I find it works better with the T4 than most other chassis, but it seems to dart in and then loose mid and exit in comparison with thd Speed 6. I find a better compromise is the Hot bodies subaru type C body, as it turns in a bit better than the Speed 6 and has unreal mid corner which suits the T4 chassis as it seems to lack this.
