And someone said the T4 is slow? I have a feeling that as the Team gets more time to dial in the T4 / get used to it..the results will improve even further.
who are you and why aren't you racing at 5280 raceway in denver. it says your in colorado but i haven't seen anyone with a t4 at the track yet.

I had Tamiya shocks on mine which weigh more I'd imagine then the new shorter xray ones.

It's all irrelevant as I can easy make weight, with a 310g battery my car is coming in at 1352g, balance also seems pretty good, probably need 5g on motor side to be perfect.

It is lighter :-) Look at the pictures.

This is my T4 and T3 2011 with a 2012 chassis and topdeck on the scale. I forgot to mount the battery posts on the T4, which is about 2g I guess.

My ride weighed in at 1270 grams race ready with Speed 6 Lw body. Did not really need to use 38 aluscrews on there...
Although i can place the additional wight closer to the ground lowering the CG even further.

Bucketboy can you post some pics of your mod?

Ok it might undermine 1000 hour of testing and R&D by Team Xray drivers but Team Xray would buy me a new chassis if I damage it?................err, no!


PS the new bumper weighs 3grms, usless as a bumper but makes a great fake moustache for the kids
