I also won a race with my T4 last weekend.
Absolutely love how the car handles compared to the T3'12 that always kinda pushed form mid corner to exit losing cornerspeed while doing that.
Here's a short clip from the beginning of the first main:

Now that is a groove. Is that carpet or indoor asphalt?

I ran kit setup mostly. I put 35wt oil in the front shocks instead of the 30. I used 1000wt in the diff. I laid the rear shocks down one hole and had about 2* rear camber. Car felt much better then my '12. I felt it had more rear traction, but a couple guys are saying they are still lacking some rear traction. Our track is low to med traction.

It's a permanent indoor carpet track so the grip levels are really high.
Hence the heavy shock oil.

Changes from Basic Carpet Setup:
heavier oil f&r: MuchMore 500 0% Rebound
1.5 camber f&r
Front:
2mm Bumpsteer
1mm between shock tower and shock
1mm(instead of 2) on the inner bulkheads
Rear:
diff in the lower position
1mm(instead of 2) on the inner bulkheads

Here's mine from last weekend. It's a new layout and the grip levels were low. It's felt like my car floating around like a hovercraft And I was on Ride tires which aren't the best tires in low grip situations.

The JACO blue was the spec tire for the IIC so I'd use Andrews Hardmans setup to start with and go from there.

Did you get your car yet??? Are you running it on Monday?

How did you get it to fit. Did you grind the battery holder down some. Mine pushes right up against the steering post.
