Or actually I should say, what did you use to mount it? Thanks again.

After taking advice from on here I got a tornado fan myself. They call it tornado for a reason!

The best way to mount it is to use a servo post and screw the post in to the spare hole on the bulkhead. You can then just attach the fan to the post. Simple, effective, light and very secure!

Stupid question:
Does using 302525 instead of the plastic parts from kit affect the handling noticeably?


Also, has someone tried out the graphite a-arms and found the improvement in handling worth the money and time to install them?

I'm building my T4 and I noticed there is excessive play on the shock ball ends.
Just too much play for a touring car.
I miked the steel ball insert with a xtra one from a T12 and its the same.
It seems to be the plastics,the shock cap and the ball end.It also seems to fit T4 only.I guess its a fluke?.Must be a bad plastic mold?
I wanted to run the new car this weekend..Oh well

It says:

"Both front are rear shock absorbers have front and lower ball joints by purpose larger to provide a little of play of the shocks once mounted to generate more traction."

The play is intended by Xray.

EDIT: too slow

This may be a silly question, but in all my previous xray cars I told to drill a small hole in the top composite piece of the shock. Is that still a good idea with this car?

There is already a hole in them.
