The white H4E was already tweaked when it went full throttle into the chicane and broke the rear arm. It was a HARD hit.

It has been noted that a strap requires lotsa of tension to hold down the battery securely and most likely will tweak/preload the chassis. The traditional method of taping down the battery does not require much tension and consequently no/very little preload occurs.

Default So is that considered a weak spot?

So does that look to be a weak spot or just one of those going so fast that no matter what car it would have been it would have broken also?
And so the actual winner of that race was a H4E?
Thanks.

I finished my build. I just need to get her on the setup station and clean up the body. Build went great no problems at all. The quality is great and the machine work is awesome. Can't wait to get her on the track.

It will be interesting to see how long you keep this one.

Wow I can officially say we have sold our first order of H4's my last one was sold yesterday to fine state of Neb. So now it's waiting time for a new order which should be about two weeks. Option parts should be coming soon also and from what I hear is spurs in different pitch and gear numbers but I don't how soon that will be, stay tuned.

For all you other drivers that got one enjoy the gloating

Okay, I am sold, ..was going to get a Spec R1 - Pro Spec, but for similar price the H4 is looking pretty nice.
As soon as they come back in stock going to pick one up.

Price, durability, availability of parts, and performance.

A lot of the large name carriers as well as my local hobby shop carries the Ofna brand... so betting parts will be easy to come by. Parts availability is a huge factor. ..i also like the dssign -especially the ability to quickly access and adjust the differentials.
I have not seen or driven an H4 in person... so.my assessment is totally based on what i've read and user reviews. ...i had narrowed my choice to the two cars like i mentioned. ..the spec r1 pro spec does look really nice too. -worried a bit about parts and support for it in the long term though?


Thanks for the word that they are available at tqr-
I go in and get off work early tomorrow. -so may be placing an order after work.
