I moved the rear shock in on the bottom since I was losing traction in the rear and it was wanting to come around on me. I may try going back to that setting.

The ride height in the front is alittle higher than the rear since the spring position with no limiters is causing it to be that way. I may put a limiter in to make it more level if necessary though I rather try more external changes first.

I will look into getting a more anti roll effect out of the vehicle ( th RC offroad handbook on AE site has good info on how to do this ). I figure if I can do this, it will make the car that much better.

You could cut some coils off the spring up front, although this will make the spring more stiff, so you might want to start off with a soft spring before cutting...

For anti-roll, there is a swaybar for the rear, although I do not know for sure if there is a swaybar for the front.

Will see what I can do to get stiffer.

Looking again at the front of my vehicle I think it may be higher since I am using RPM lower cups. Will compare and see.

What do you guys think of the graphite kit? I am thinking of getting one as I don't bang boards much.

Excuse the question if it has been asked before.....do the T3 rims fit the T4 and is the offset the same? ProLine has not made any T4 rims other than those in the kit.

well, racing didn't go that well this week. Broke two bulkheads and 1 front hingepin brace. Was catching a glitch from somewhere on the track, really sucked.

Well, went out and bought the trinity front hinge brace, RPM mini bumper and some other parts. Also picked up some Imex G-Hawg tires to do some monster running

Figure I need to do a diff rebuild too so I also picked up the lightened drives as well. I am thinking of doing a tear down of the vehicle since I have to install the drives, clean all the bearings and relube, so we'll see.

I hope the hingepin brace will hold up well. That bulkhead just snaps so easily. I mean I know I hit with decent force, but the second break wasn't even that hard of a kit. O well, at least it was a funny crash!

I am looking to get alittle quicker turn speed, right now I feel the spring settings are about as good as they get so I am looking to try other things, maybe lean the shocks in front and back on the shocks towers. from what I read, it will give a progessive feel to the shocks.

FT T4 probably won't be released at a minimum of a year or two. I am suprised that they just now released the FT Nitro TC3!

Anyone know if the Trinity Front hingepin brace works on the T4 when you use lunsford Titanium hinge pins or the stock ones? I picked this up as I couldn't find the factory team brace and I am hoping it does work.
