Took my T4 out for the first time last night.

Well pleased. For us in the UK the kit carpet set up works great. Didn't get any records not that I would. As I didn't really like the track.

I messed with the settings a little and didn't really improve anything.

Defo a very worthy improvement from the T3 12.

I have added the bumper from the T3 a few other guys have damaged thier chassis with the new low profile bumper.

Some pictures

Mini ripper iv spent the last 15min staring at those pictures. I really can wait to get mine this week.

Can you please do me a massive favour and mesure the distance between the mounting face of the servo mount and the motor. Thanks in advance

Miniripper,

Just wondering, can you take a closer pic of the front bumper area with the t3 number? I would love to get a t4 but the bumper scares me (I still hit the wall a lot).

Also, what are the orange screws on the top deck for? I have seen these and often wondered what the practical use for them is. The only thing I could come up with is that is allows the use of a machined screw so you don't need a bunch of different screws in your bin.

Thanks for the info. I love the pictures! It allows me in the states to live vicariously through you over the pond.

The screws and spacers ur using on ur top deck , I never had luck with every time I came off the track car would be tweaked unless I used blue lock tite and backed the screws out about a 1/4-1/2 turn .

The front of the chassis the bumper as it does not have the bulkhead to fall back on basically de laminates the chassis.

Ill get another shot later for you as ill be at the track in a bit.

The Orange screws are CSK 3x8's with Xray CSK washers. The idea is that they don't allow tweak as much because they cover a greater surface area. I appreciate that they are spreading the load so in theory less surface impaction but that's way to complicated.
All I know is they work for me!

Glad you like the pics.

Yes indeed.

You need the T3 bumper and you'll need the longer posts that you screw the bumper holder into.
