I always liked the all black look with the machined silver edges Xray had on their earlier 1/8th scale parts. It looked nice. There's a company that does different machining accents on Harley Davidson jug fins called diamond cut. It would be cool to see something done to a TC car like that. Got to love bling bling.

Any chance the outer camber link is dragging on the rim? I've had rims that flexed enough for the rim to make contact and the rear would kick out unexpectedly.

There is not much to see,the botton ball cup is made slightly shorter, the screw collar has the o ring removed and the first 1mm of the bore opened out to 15mm. look at the screw collar without o ring and you will understand

Well ... I was told the changes that one would apply to the T3 don't give same results if done to the T4 . I just recently came to xray from top so its all new to me right now

Set up changes should be no different regardless of what chassis make it is. Heck I use the same philosophy with on road or off road. The laws of physics don't change.

Well, I have my t4 assembled and ran. I have about 25 degrees of throw on the steering before the servo plate starts flexing. I love the car but my only complain right now is that it pushes on power at corner exit, other than that my car is perfect. The car is very fast and durable, I added a bumper top plate to fix the bracing problem it had by not resting against the bulkhead.

To the people who insist on trying to have more steering lock In the latest Xray column for the magazines he explains why they reduced the steering lock to help carry corner speed.
