Yeah, I should have added that I haven't seen anyone with a 5th post on a T4, yet. I think you could make a custom bridge piece to go over the front belt using two of the holes at the front of the topdeck that go into the bulkheads. Hard to explain the idea in my head, but I'm pretty sure that something could be made to work.

You could maybe mount one on the top deck's front hole that is meant for a belt tensioner, but it might be difficult to get it to not touch the front belt, and might be a bit too far back to be effective.

Works great I put it on that side since we run clockwise it keeps body from dragging if fenders r cracked any and I have swapped it to other side when we reversed the layout . it was a quick easy free 5th mount is at bottom of windshield I feel the perfect spot to get more strength

Ok cool, thanks for the advice. How have you stopped the battery getting amazed by the belt and motor?

Why didn't u use the hole in the top deck next to the where ur post is in that pic, I've used a 5th body post once and put it there use a front body post cut down as appropriate then if u need to raise add washers underneath.

U don't need to put a hole in the shell just as long as the shell touches the post it can't collapse in.

Yes, but I found I was more consistent with a PF Speed6, think it depends on the grip levels etc.

I only use lightweight bodies as the cars handling is improved, it's much better at direction changes.

I use two associated 12th scale body posts with set screws and mount it where the two screws go for the bulkhead caps on the rear of shock tower also use the nt1 rear bumper stops on the back of the car

Hagberg's European Championships 2013 he also used LTCR LW body. I dont recall seeing a 5th body post on his car. I do not mind the flex at high speeds as long as it doesn't slow me down?

I really enjoy reading this thread, and watching you guys the masters at work with dialing it in.

I have a question: Am I breaking some unspoken rule of RC by having my T4 as a street queen and running it day in and out on my street?

I very much want to hit the track and keep it in tip top shape; but i need to feel the speed more often then i'm able to make it to the track..

I've noticed my chasis is getting pretty scratched up and I've sparked out many m3 screws at this point and munched up the $13 bumper, Can you guys that are track only post pics of the bottom of your chasis so i can compare.

Forgive the bald tires and the scratched turnbuckles (replacements are coming)


and clearly i have a new chassis purchase coming in the near future, any idea if the T4 2014 chassis will be compatible with the parts

I would probably keep your t4 as a basher and get the new car as your track car. Did I just say basher and t4 in the same sentence?
