Well I compared my 13 pin location to my 14 "center" location . and noticed the front track width is 1mm wider on 14 has anyone tried [.5•] [•.5] in front ? Now this is kit setting I'm comparing .
Also on a side note I tried installing "14" hinge pin mounts on T4 . ... Well I will say the ff & rr will bolt up to T4 with only pin length mod (-2mm) the hole location on fr wider on "14" and will not mount up on T4.
So i will be purchasing a chassis to complete the conversion im thinking

Got my cars Friday night and built them both yesterday. Builds were awesome! Only problem I had was on one of the kits 3 out of the 4 wheel hex's wouldn't stay on the car. With the screw as tight as I could get it without stripping out the head they still fell off. Not a big deal really as I had extra's anyways but odd none the less. Can't wait to try these bad boys out!

Has anyone had any problems with how the motor is mounted,looks like a lot of strain put on the motor,might be just from not being used to seeing them mounted like it

Get some ProTek M2x5mm socket head cap screws from Amain. Should fix you right up.

The TOP Photon also did the same, which I ran for two odd years and never had an issue with it, and none with the original T4 either, though I did have the mounts slip once and loose mesh/drive, but I did take a fair hit from memory.

had a blast last friday,my first time on carpet in 11 years and i loved how much grip there is,i did have a few issues which slowly got sorted through the night which is why im down in the d final,the car was still loose on corner entry at the slower turns which was fairly easy to put up with,so im going to try hagbergs sorex carpet set up and see how that goes next friday,in the vid im alot faster than the guys around me but i kept making small but costly mistakes,i was slightly overgeared which when sorted should help the lap times

It's the small mistakes that seperate the A to where u were,

I watched that video was u the orange car?

That didn't look like a hagberg performance so not much point in putting he's setup on ur car.

Everyone complained t4 was safe xray released the 14 I drives around on its nose, the worlds best drive there car around on its nose.

Start with 1 change at a time and feel its difference. Last Friday I helped set up a 14 then drove it in round 3 it was really good.
4 things were changed from kit setup to calm the rear down.

Has anyone flipped the servo mount over,180 deg,with servo on the right,to run with shorty packs...? How did car behave...? I know caution needs to be exercised when countersinking the other side of plate...
Thanks ...kirt

I have one on the way...to run in vta as well...in a way,it makes even more sense to run a high end chassis in this class...one of the few "allowances" in the class...given restrictions on most everything else...and besides...no kill like an overkill...!
