Ran into a small problem with the build.

The standard rear arms bind when using the 1mm shims front and rear as suggested in the manual. Using the 0 inserts.

A thinner shim removes the bind but this doesn't match the manual.

Not a big issue but I just want to make sure I haven't made a mistake.

You have to ream arms with an arm reamer and adjust the blocks until they do not bind. 2mm shims should work no problem
Once you get things adjusted and moving freely!
Also polishing the hinge pins makes a world of difference in the arms moving more free.

Loosen the screws and hold the block away from the arm and retighten screws. It should provide some relief to the stress on the shims.

Looking for some one to do a custom T4 2015 build. I travel a lot for work and do not have the time to do the initial build, plus I want it done professionally, graphite polished / CA'd and help pick and add components and tuned. I will pay for the build service. If interested send me a PM and how much you will charge. Thanks!

Greetings and Happy New Year.

I have just finished the assembly of T4 2015 and I have two questions:

1) When I assembled the shock shafts to the 4-hole 1.1mm pistons and inserted them into the alu shock body, I found that there is a lot of play. The pistons do not fit exactly into the shock body (the body is way bigger than the pistons) and at the final assembly the hole piston goes back and forth. Is this normal?

2) The upper bumper holder (part No 301216) has about 1-2mm gap from the alu front bulkheads. Is this my fault or is it disigned like this? In a serious crash I have a feeling that the chassis would brake. Has anybody had any issues with that?

Thank you in advanced.

You'd be surprised how much abuse the chassis can take with no problems.

None of the above is abnormal.
