i hit the hubs as it is with standard set up and reduce my epa to stop it. so how would moving the link give me more steering throw if it physically cannot move anymore?

Thanks

If you're using the standard setup, it shouldn't hit the hubs.

well maybe not hitting it but its damn near close, and i have had to reduce my epa. anything to do with the servo im using? its a savox 1251mg? i can remember when setting it up i had to reduce my epa as it was hitting something and causing the chassis to tweak

Thanks

That's just the servo moving instead of the steering rack moving because of too much EPA, it was designed not to hit as it was said to increase corner speed.

The shims on the ball joint in the middle of the steering rack (that link to the servo) should hit the steerings arms, before anything comes into contact with the steering knuckles/C hubs etc.

No....the spacers where the link mounts to the bellcrank bridge limit the throw because the arms hit the spacers. When you move the link to the bellcrank arm you eliminate the spacers that also act a steering limiter. You'll be able to get another 4 or 5 degrees of steering throw...

I don't believe they have bladders for the t4 yet? They worked just fine on the t3.

They do not fit T4 shocks. You can "fit" them on but as soon as the suspension gets worked it will suck the bladder down in. I would LOVE some properly sized ones from Reflex, along with the 6-hole pistons that were discussed recently

The RSD's work really well for me.
But you have to remove part of the top collar so it screws down further and clamps enough. (make collar about 5.8mm on linisher or similar)

Default A fifth body post?????

I was interested in adding a fifth body post to my t4. I am planning on using the hole that was pre drilled in the front of the top deck. My question would be will adding the post stiffen the chassis or effect the cars rotation. I can reem the hole in the body a little larger to allow a bit of flex but is it needed?

I put mine on top of the steering post (the side is outside of sweeper just in case I want to run a crap body ) works great and don't seam to tweak chassis like the top deck would (possibly cracking top deck also)
