That is sweet! After every darn run almost I have to re-tighten my roll center block because they move, mainly because I hit to much, but still it's annoying. Looking forward to this change!

Those look like the plastic inserts the XB4 uses where the pin still sits in the plastic holder.

I wonder if they'll retro-fit to the T4'13 chassis.

Also looks like there's no screws through the topdeck into the layshaft mounts (no surprise there), but it also looks like there might be a screw down through the middle of the top deck near the front of the motor, Yokomo-style.

I just bought 2 new T4's so that would be awesome if you could convert to the new mounts.

I see he has 2 screws removed from the rear tower as well.

Is anyone selling the new layshaft mounts yet?

Raced my new T4 last night, crazy grip right from kit settings, spent quite a few heats just trying to dial out grip so it could turn better, then just did a tweak to shocks up front to get a little more corner entry bite, every bit as fast as the old car I had, just now need to work on some mid corner speed, it feels a little slow around mid turn, may play with roll centers to get some more of that.

Looking at those pics earlier, is it just me or do the diff pulleys look a lot bigger?

Looks like both cars are different..... One has the rear low friction belt on and the other doesn't..... You think all Team guys are running prototype parts??..... just wondering.....

I think it's the lack of arm mounts making it look different in the rear.

Probably unlikely as the mounts they are using/testing will need different holes to the current chassis.

They layshaft mounts are an option item that has been out a while. I have them on my car.

What effect does increasing chassis flex have on the car? What can one notice when you have removed screws from the top deck?

RC Market had them a couple of weeks before Xray even announce them, makes me wonder where RC Market got theirs.
