Post Alu steering posts!

Hi,
Where can I find shorter alu steering posts for my Xray T4?
I know CSO fits but where can I buy one?
Are there other brands that fit?

Thx for replying.

Just received my T4-14 and as this being my first tc I'm looking for input on a servo and speed controller. I'll most likely be running 17.5.

Thanks

Hey guys I'm relatively new to tc racing and just got a T4 '14 just have a couple of quick questions.

1. Is everyone using the stock bumper?
2. Do aluminium steering arms make any difference?
3. Does the carbon stiffener for the bumper make a difference?

Thanks in advanced

No u want to make a front bumper from a harder foam block or but a RSD front hard front bumper . also either use a brace to support the top of the bumper (bump stop) or use a T3 front standoffs with T3 (thicker) bumper . if u don't use the bump stop u can potentially rip the front screws they the chassis..
Also no the aluminum steering parts r not any better . they only add a few grams in place of adding lead weights . I have ran plastic for 15months and haven't broke A SINGLE PART and have tossed this car out of the track many times .

I just took the T3 hard bumper and cut it down to the same height as the T4 bumper using a serrated steak knife. I left it a little thick intentionally then hit it with a little air sander in the garage to clean it up. The side I cut looks as good as the factory finished side after sanding. I already had the T3 hard bumper lying around, otherwise I would have bought the RSD one which I have on my other car. Getting a relatively straight cut is fairly easy if you take your time and don't try to cut too deep in one shot.

1. No, read some of the other posts, I bought an Reflex Racing front bumper.
2. They are supposed to help sharpen up the steering on asphalt, but Alex Hagberg said they made it slightly worse on carpet.
3. I assume you mean the graphite upper bumper brace. Yes, fit one!
