I'm curious about something. Did they make a running change to the servo mount on the T4? I have 2 T4's and on one of the cars the aluminum piece looks just like this (see pic below). On the other it has the small locating nub on both sides. The side that goes against the chassis and the opposite side. Anyone else see this before or did I end up with a part that was machined wrong?

I bought one of mine in December of 2012 and one March of 2013 (both from Amain) and they both have one nub on the bottom. Top is flat.

I bought one the week it was released and it only had one. I bought anther one about a mutha ago and it had 2. Also on the second one I bought it had almost all aluminum shims. The first one I bought was mostly composite. So I guess they made a few changes.

Early kits have a located on one side, later ones both.

I've had 4 t4 kits now 2 early s and 2 later ones I found my kit changed in the march time.
I preferred the single nub and found the anodising heavier around the nubs base if that makes sense so it doesn't sit flush in the carbon.
I cleaned the join with sand paper

Now, could someone point me in the direction of the panty sand extractor?

Extraction not required. I appreciate the feedback. I was worried about that and the overall length too. Attention spans are getting shorter and shorter (myself included). It's my second vid (better than first at least) and they can only get better (hopefully).

I do enjoy watching and filming the sedan crew though. They always put on a great show. Hopefully the gang in this thread won't mind me posting sedan content vids here in the future. If not, let me know guys..

I like it Dan. Gives me something to look back at and watch how bad I am.

Anyone got spur size recommendations for 17.5T blinky and 10.5T blinky?, I have every 48p pinion from 15-40 tooth, just have no idea what size spur will be ideal range wise on the T4 I just got, and I'd rather not have to buy a heap to figure out what will work, thanks.

In 64p, 96 tooth spurs are popular for 17.5. Around 3.8 FDR, so 48 tooth pinion.
So, in 48 pitch, 72 spur, and 36 pinion.
