Diff access is kinda cool, the upper part of the bulkhead rotates up. The C-hubs look interesting too.
At least it isn't a trf or t4 clone.

Better pics here:

Awaiting the arm chair designers to think they know best....

"Ooh a green T4... Blah blah blah"

It looks good and something a bit interesting IMO

I've seen someone testing this car at our local carpet track.

The Impressive stand out parts on this car.

Universals are tough....

Diff Quality is one of the best I've seen Smooth and doesn't leak.

Reversed Steering Hub is unique

You can replace the diff to spool in less than 5 min with out rushing.


The car was supringly light. I asked the driver to put the car on the tech scale and it weight 1345-1350 race ready....

He was using Short Sanwa servo, HW v3 speedo, Reedy 13.5 motor, TP battery, Rubber tires, PF speed 6 lw body.

Few quick questions, What is that little "pad" behind the servo mount (looks like a x). Any parts compatible with other TC's currently on the market?

Not really sure what it's for, I'll try to find out what it's for.

The little pad is a receiver mount that is hollow in the bottom to help clean up the elect wiring. At least that's what it was being used for on the test car I saw.

potential a mini deck to put your electronics without interfering with the flex...

I suppose the holes in the front and rear spindles are for aerodynamic disks,for the case of you have to run with 5-spokes wheels. That's a good way to fight the turbulences, just like the nitro cars...

Here you go with the answer for the car, OFNA will support the H4E sedan so all parts will be carried for the car here in the US in the coming weeks. We may be looking to have this in about 30 to 40days and the price will be very competitive in price we think street price will be around $369.00. There are alot of good features for the car that will certainly be a great to have out of the box. We were thinking of other colors but the green has been meet with great response, here's our car with it wired up.

I'd bet it's for "brakes" for the drift crowd.
