Was asked on the T3'12 thread about driving it so....

Got to run it this evening for the first time.

We ran a layout that was pretty unforgiving so some corners were taken with care. My fastest lap of the evening was 0.47s behind the 5 times UK Mod champion, Chris Grainger.

When I first put the car down it felt superb, very consistent and easy to drive.
It seems to have more steering than the '12 and the steering is very smooth, but the extra steering is going to take some time to get used to to be able to drive it as fast as I want.
I ran the Mazda Speed 6 in quali, this has been my standard carpet body for a while as it felt consistent, the LTC-R was a handful.
I tried the LTC-R in the final with the T4 and managed to go 0.2s quicker than in quali with the Speed 6.
Couple of the others actually added more rear toe and thicker front oil to make it just that little bit easier. I might try the rear toe next week.

It was kit carpet setup except for 2deg rear camber and 1000cSt in the rear diff.
The back didn't step out all evening despite the extra steering!
I left the setup the same all evening (except that bodyshell) as I wanted to see what the handling did as grip came up.

The finals are video'd on a webcam, I'll post a link when the final gets posted so you can see.

Do I like it? yes
Absolute setup will require some slight tinkering, but I know it can be competitive with little effort.

Sounds like everyone with their new T4 chassis say its a hugh improvement over their T3s. I'm very optimistic about my upcoming events with my T4 once its delivered and built. So excited!

Saw one in person yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised. Typical x ray quality and the shocks do look nice.

Hudy battery tape, I never even consider using anything else.

You only need to use one piece per meeting, just keep re-strapping the batteries after every run.

I bought a roll over a year ago (do alot of racing) and still on the first roll!

Hudy battery tape is the only tape to use.

Yup, works really well.
Major changes I made was 3000cst in the rear diff, 2.5 rear spring and outside hole on the front camber link.
Other than that, kit setup and the car felt awesome.
