I had mine geared at 116/35 with a 7.5. You might start there or maybe 36. Our track is the same size.

Thank you. That should get me close enough to the ball park I can figure it out from there. Much appreciated!

I posted this in the new T4 thread but will add it here too. I have a pre-order for the xray T4 2014 from Reflex Racing that should be in your hands within the next 2 weeks. The price is $530. If you are looking to order the new T4 please contact me. You will just need to put my name in the comment box and will get 2 day shipping on me. I pre-ordered this and something come up where I need the money more than this car right now. I will leave the 2 day shipping I ordered with the kit so you use my name is like a free $30 shipping coupon!

Default setup

help

i have been running basically kit asphalt setup with.
21.5 blinky TC
2mm shims under inner links
2mm bumpsteer
kit springs and oil
1600 diff
droop ride height all kit
car is good on muchmore tyres 32,36 and really good on muchmore rush 36 and is ok on ride blue 32's
home track is medium to high grip

state titles this weekend and control tyres are ride rex34 but with carpet insert
temps low 30's celcius
track is again medium to high but more flowing with mid 15 sec laps.
first heat last weekend practise race all good then next heat snap loose on corner entry. tried second car and it is the same.
changed to rush 36 and car was good. so it is the tyres.
general feeling is i am overgripped in front as it is squealing a lot even last night when temps dropped. tyres are shredding and not smooth.

tried.
anti dive, less front camber 1 deg, more rear 3 deg and a bit lower ride height and it helped but was still not good.
then removed rear inner shims and bump shims and was a bit better but getting hard to drive.
car was ok quick for a single lap but would still snap out and spin if driven a bit harder.
then went to 2000 diff but was getting colder by then and really didn't notice
if better or not. everyone slowed a bit.

any suggestions. thinking of starting again with kit setup in first qual and go from there.

I would probably try widening the front-end a bit to about 2.25mm, using the spacers at the pin, max. You could also try going to thicker front oil, maybe 400 or 450, and possibly lower your steering endpoints on your radio, sometimes called dual rate.

Can anyone tell me if a bodyshell from a t3 2012 will fit the t4 14?. I am thinking at least the rear post holes will need redrilling due to narrower chassis?, thanks.

Requires different holes.

From the '12 to the '13 the only change was the rear holes. You might need to expand the front bumper a touch with pads as the t4 bumper is smaller in pretty much every way.

I don't believe the '13 and '14 are different.

The complete conversion came to around £95.
I've ordered one for my old T4
