If the RX4 is any indicator on how the '14 will handle, you may be dialing out a little steering!

I would like to hear some comments on it too. I have the chassis on my wish list, just haven't pulled the trigger on it yet?

The RX4 definitely provides more steering, and it doesn't sacrifice any rear grip to do it. I like a lot of steering and found this chassis to fit my driving style well. It also has allowed me to run a more conservative setup than I normally run. I posted my setup on the Reflex thread to help provide a starting point. If you try my setup on a RX4 and want a less aggressive feel I would recommend changing to 4 degree caster blocks and adding a 0.5 or 1mm shim behind the steering links for less Ackerman.

I tested on a smooth carpet track, 80'x36' and grip was medium to medium-high.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are currently out of stock on the T4 Orange/Titanium screw kits, but we do expect them back in about a weeks time. I will repost when they are available.

We do have individual orange screw packs available at:

http://www.pitboxhobbies.com/hsaob.htm

Somewhat limited quantity, but we will have more of those in stock soon as well. Thanks for the interest.

Hey guys, i'm a yokomo guy racing against 3 T4s, lol Always looking at the competition!

What's the changes to the new T4 2014 edition? Are the suspension arms now on a ball? like tamiya and yokomos? What else has changed?

Sadly, we don't know yet as the new car hasn't been announced

They are not on a ball like the Tamiya/Yokomo style. But the hinge pins are mounted to the chassis now instead of the bulkheads. They use an insert in them to adjust toe instead of shims.

Yea Ive gotten some before. But I refuse to pay that much for screws even if they are that good! 200.00+ for a screw kit is not going to happen from me....
