Wow not much mention of the new shocks. After years of people requesting new shocks how are they? Are they the bomb or what? how do they compare to the Tamiyas?`

Dude, what servo did you install? I have a brand new Savox 1257TG which couldn't fit as the body was excessively rubbing the servo saver arm (302526) It was way too tall. Beware of tall servos (the height from the ears to top of the body, hope you guys get what I mean). So I reluctantly installed a faithful 1251MG low profile unit.

I would really like to know of other servo options for this fabulous kit. Thanks!

I managed to get about 50% rebound when building straight out of the packet.

They go together easily. Also seems like the edges of the bladders are slightly thicker (the point screwing the cap on between the cap first touching the bladder and the cap being tight has greatly reduced) and I think the cap has limited travel so it's harder to pinch the bladder.

Can't remember what Tamiya shocks are like as I haven't used a set in years but these latest Xray shocks are simple to build and appear to be very smooth once built.

I did notice that the pistons seemed to be almost slightly undersized when first put together.
I'm assuming that after spending some time soaking in the oil that they expand slightly.

Drove my T4 today at our club race. All I can say is that it's an awesome car. Comming from a T3 2011 with 2012 chassis and topdeck, this car was faster for me.

It's was more stable, easy to drive and had plenty of steering The track I drove on was low - med traction. We drove with ride 32 tires (control tire for our nationals and ETS). My car was tail happy in the morning but after a few changes I had a very good car. My friends that were comming from the T3 2012 copied their setup on the T4, but that wasn't perfect. After they had driven my car, they started to copy my setup And they are better drives than me (top 5 guys from Belgium), so they what a good car should drive like.

This was my setup: http://f.cl.ly/items/163b0Z3l002W3y2...2019:56:52.png

I build the car completely like the kit setup and went from there. With 700 the car was too nervous on turn in and less predictable. The 2000 oil calmed the rear down off-power and made it more predictable.

Short, low front link and a long rear link. I tried the short front link and my car had too much roll in the front. The rearend was less predictable and my overal steering increased a little imo. The car was more stable with the medium front link. And after adding a 0.5mm link, the frontend was a bit calmer. I could push the car pretty hard and it was fast in the chicanes.

I should have tried a 2mm shim on the rearbulkhead, but 1mm was also great

Not to distract you from those and I am not sure where you are located. i f you are in the states I have found these to work great for storing my tires. They can be found in most local hardware stores like home depot, menards, and lowes. They hold a complete set of tires. There is a seam on the top which I seal with shoe goo and vinyl tape.
