Try ARC spur gears. I've used a couple and they were just fine.

Hey Kevin,
My favorite are the Leespeed gears. Eric Anderson has them on this site. http://www.teameamotorsports.com/ind...product_id=122

I like Xray spurs, but Serpent spurs fit as well. The Serpent spurs aren't offset, which can be good or bad depending on what pinions you use.

Leespeed, RW, Xray, Panaracer spurs will fit with no modifications and I imagine there are several more.

Hi guys, T4 2015 newbie here. I recently bought a brand new kit (haven't build it yet) but are there any "Known" issues with the kit that requires to ask Xray to send replacement parts? or any other known issues with the kit? I also bought a Xb4 2015, heard there were problems with the rear toe and Xray was sending out replacement parts to fix that issue. So just wondering if the T4 has the same type of problem. Thanks.

Some 2015 T4 kits had bad QA when it came to the shock parts bag. I would build the shocks first to make sure everything is there. Otherwise the kit is solid and builds like a dream.

Which aluminum chassis does the group like? How many are there for the 2015 car? Xray and Avid are the ones I know about. Any others? What are the Pros and Cons of these?

I actually never got the Xray alu chassis to try but I'm currently running the avid alu chassis and love it. Lots of steering and corner speed with the avid chassis. Fit and finish on the avid is great as well. Of course the Xray quality is top notch as well, though I think the Xray chassis is a little heavy

I have driven the XRAY chassis for several months, and switch to the Team Tamale. the finish of both are great. The Team Tamale offers a little more flex then the XRAY. The Team Tamale chassis is 20g lighter than the XRAY. They are both excellent choices. Avid is also an excellent choice as well.

How did you adjust your setup for the Tamale chassis, if I may ask?

Default Front Arm Pivot Pin shims

Does anyone use shims on the front arm pivot pins? The pin that holds the chubs on. I have a little more play than I like and was wondering where to get some shims.
