What about battery holders? Do the old T3'12 battery holders fit the new T4? Same mounting holes? I've got a set of carbon fiber battery holders from Team SR and I'm wondering if those will fit the T4 as well.

Yeah. They will fit. I use my aluminum ones from my T3.

The carbon tsrs do not fit without some modding.

Hmm, ok. I'll just order a set of the Xray ones since I'm gonna put a massive order in anyway.

Thanks.

That's good to know. I was going to put some on my Mod car. Guess I will just get the aluminum ones again.

Xray has carbon adjustable battery mounts for the t4 available. I'm sure rca has them in stock.

hi all,just continuing on my set up issues,here is the set up i started with
http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...D=430&setup=t4
the changes i made were a drop from 2000cst to 1000cst in the rear diff,front springs changed to the 2.3/2.6 progressives and laid the front shock in another hole and i managed a new pb (dont get too worked up it was only 1 second) but faster none the less,went from a 14.69 to a 14.41 with a lot more consistency to my run,during qualifying i only had old rubber which was worn through to the belting so to go a sec faster on old worn out rubber cheered me up,so had a look in my tyre box of a few old tyres and found 3 tyres slightly better than the ones on the car,i hit the second final and had my best run so far with the t4 ,still alot of work to do to get the other half a second, some of this time is still me as after ten years away im still improving my skills,so next up will be shock oils,most run 400 but ill try 400/450/500 to see what works better,if anyone has any suggestions towards ackerman and why or if i should change what i have,its better in the slower corners but is pushing going into the banked sweeper(that might just be the tyres) so next meeting,new boots will confirm if im going in the right direction,thanks for all your help so far,you know who you are

Hey guys,

I'm looking at building a T4 for our upcoming onroad season. I was planning on getting ECS's for the front, the CF upper bumper brace, and front gear diff. Are there other things you guys would suggest I consider getting?

a spring set will help with tuning and maybe some roll bars,having a spare rear diff with a different oil will help as it reduces time trackside ,easier to change a diff than having to change the oil aswell

Default Region 4 Race

First weekend out with the car on asphalt @ the ROAR Region 4 electric road Regionals (2013 ROAR Region 4 Electric On Road Regional's) and all weekend i was chasing more rotation and more steering. My setup to get the car into an A main final podium position was a bit odd ball from what some other guys had, but it definitely was one of the fastest sedans according to track times.

http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...D=440&setup=t4

if you are chasing more steering or rotation, switch the shims in the rear arms so the arms move closer to the front. Car will rotate a lot better

no need for the ECSs, but definitely get a front gear diff and put 1M or 2.5M CST in there. Also, grab the upgraded diff out drives (http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Adapter-Set-2). Springs are a must, 2 sets of 2.3s 2 sets of 2.5 and one of 2.7s (the stock kit comes with 2.7s in the front).

I am guessing you are talking about making the wheelbase shorter. Yes that will for sure make the car rotate but it will make the car twitchy and faster reaction.

you could try a lower weight oil in the rear diff

my first move would be decrease rear camber and take shim out under inside rear camber link or add outside if you are not at max. Then if still needed shorten rear links.

That is how i drive and setup my cars, need to know if i barely touch the wheel she is turning. Watch some of the best drivers in the world, their cars do the same thing. They barely move the wheel to steer through corners.

I thought about dropping 2k in there but just didn't have any

Rear camber was already 1 degree and rear links were already short. I thought taking shims out lowers roll center, therefore making the car push more?!?!
