Yes as far as I recall.
I think the Sweeps can cause oversteer a bit more easily than Sorex etc.

Are there any real upgradable issues with this car?

All iv needed has all been within the factory supplied adjustments.

Hi,

Will the ball diff off a T2 fit/ work in the T4?, they seem to list it under the T4 parts on various sites?

Thanks for the replies.

Still pretty early days, at the moment even Alex H looks to be using a standard car. The performance of the T4 is already fantastic although I'm sure they will find little ways to improve it.

Maybe a couple of usability things would be nice, like being able to change the spur without removing the topdeck, and a built-in bumper brace.

It's such a fantastic car they're going to struggle with the next round of optimisations

Not without modifications. It requires some material to be removed from the shoulder on one of the metal outdrives, and from one of the plastic dust shields. It can be done though.

Those would both be welcome improvements. The car is darn good out of the box.

It will be difficult for them to improve upon this car. I expect only minor changes. For the T4 2014, I would bet on at least a new upper bumper piece that sits flush with the bulkheads. Possibly a slightly modified motor mount as well. I would like to see the face where the screw heads are, be milled out just a little. To add a bit of texture, so the screws don't slip as easily and also to place the screws in a little further to allow for >50 tooth pinions without hitting the screws so easily. The CSO layshaft bearing clamp design would be a welcome addition too. I don't trust removing all four of the top deck screws over the layshaft with the current design.

What does removing those four screws do exactly?

Either 2.7/2.5 f/r, or I've recently taken a liking to the silver/silver combo from Reflex. This is at NorCal hobbies.

Only thing I didn't like about the box carpet setup was how soft it is and that it rolled too much, think ill try 450 next as skiddins said and box setup will be all you need

Running this setup too at Norcal. Feels better versus the stock progressive rear springs. I tried the 2.7F/2.3R combo but it was too much understeer for my liking. The 2.7/2.5 feels about right.
