Has anyone tried heavier diff fluid in the rear? I have the ars system, plus front diff with 1,000,000wt. It seems fishy in the back?

probably a stupid question but when running a front diff in these cars do you have to go to 50mm drive shafts or will 52 work?

Not sure if it's required to run 50's but that's all I ever see people run on carpet.

+1, was fine in the '14. Haven't tried yet in the '15 but I don't expect it to be any different.

Think he actually means to get the inner link lower. At present there seems to be a lot of scope for adjusting the ARS to get less toe in. But very little to gain toe in.

By replacing the inner post supplied in the kit by an m3 x 8 (or 10 or 12) screw and a threaded ball (like the one used to hold the shocks) you could in theory run with a 1mm spacer sitting on the chassis and get mega change of positive toe in. but you could run lower than 6mm height on the inner link which is the lowest with the supplied inner post.

I know one racer at the weekend had milled 2mm of the inner post to get more change in positive toe

Default X-Ray T4 2015

Hey guys.

I consider building an X-Ray T4 2015 for mod racing. I haven't had a 1/10 Touring car before. I've only driven 1/8 GT8 onroad (Ofna X3 GT and Kyosho Inferno GT2).

The build i'm considering is this:
Car : X-Ray T4 2015
Esc/motor: Tekin RSX Gen2 / Redline 4,5t or 5,5t
or Orca VRITRA VXX V3.3 / ORCA RX3 4,5t
Servo: Savox SC-1251MG - Low Profile, High Speed
Batteries: SMC Race Formula 7.4V, 7200 mah 70C
or Orca Infinite Ultra 7.4V, 7500mah 90C

What choices would be better for a modified tourer, and does this look like a descent setup for a competition car

About getting same as other racers at track, and availability of parts etc doesnt matter much. I buy parts online, and I just want to build a very good racer

Thank you for suggestions

Frank

Xray t4'15

I hope you realise we already have a thread for this car (SEE ABOVE) so really there's no need to post here
