Call um yo self Dave , tell um I sent you and you will get a great deal...

Prefer you to use your own local race or hobby facility first, that is the best deal for racing in your r/c community after all..

I would if there was one

unfortunately I would say 98% of our tracks in our country are not hobby shops/track like in the US.

sounds like there is not a race facility or a hobby store in your country to support ?

When i lift myFT B4 and look at the droop, left to right is not the same front or rear. I take the shocks off and disconnect the camber links and its still off. Could my chasis be tweaked? On the track its still fast tho

possibly a bent hinge pin or some molding flash on the inside of the arm interfering?

Check for loose screws or stripped threads on ft top plate #9566


Check rear arm brace #9571 for same

also look at rear U brace #9564 & chassis under rear tower...

Most likely the chassis is straight...

Default B4 rear hubs

What degree are the rear hubs that come in the Factory Team kit? Do most people switch these aout and if so to what degree? Thanks in advance.

Stock toe-in is 3 degrees per side but the hubs are zero degrees. The toe-in is inboard where the a-arms connect to the chassis.

Associated will be releasing new arm mounts this summer that will allow you to change the toe-in (2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4 degrees per side will be possible)

Until they are released your option is to do what most have done for the the last year or so. Many racers are buying Racer's Edge 0.5 degree aluminum hubs to give the car 3.5 degrees per side. You can also buy 1.0 degree Racer's Edge hubs to get 4 degrees per side but that is generally too much on the buggy.

I understnad that folks who run the SC10 are using Losi hubs that add toe in. Don't know the part numbers though.

Chedda Bob makes a metal toe block that adds toe-in, keep in mind, adding toe with blocks shortens the wheelbase too.

I don't really know squat about brushless stuff and my question shows it.
I have a T-4...I just bought a Novak 10.5 motor and a 5000 40c batt.,and a Novak GTB.
The kid next door and I have been playing around with it in the yard.All was fine until we tried it again the next day.It will not move unless I give it a lil shove.I have been told I have prolly burned up the rotor.
Ok,, my next question is ,the motor says Novak 10.5 brushless on the side.Thats it...It has a purple ring around it.What do I have?And what do I need to order to fix this ?
Also what other type of 10.5 can I get.?Are there adjustable timing motors that will work with this speedo?.What types of BL motor are there out there?I have heard of sintered or none sintered etc .
And I was also running a 16 pinion and the stock spur on the T-4.Too much ?not enough?

regards

You should be running around 87/24 with a 10.5... If you have to push it to move it's more then likely the sensor wire which i don't think can be replaced on the older style Novak motors. Try resetting the speed control and recalibrating everything once you get a new pinion. With a GTB you can run any sensored 10.5 out there.

I'm gonna hazard a guess and say that the local track will benefit from the guy coming out to practice and race more than they would from selling the kit. Markup on kits aren't huge (and if they are the majority don't buy them) but track owners make their money in parts support and race/practice fees.
