You can use the short (std) arms if you use the TA04 SS front arms.# 53578 Hard arm set, and std rear arms to get the proper wheel base.
Did this on my ex EvoIV, was a lot stronger for a board track.

Yes, I have done the same as well. But it's not very adjustable after that...

And for the people who think shaft is faster than belt in stock, just look at all the races around the world to see what is really winning. And ain't shaft cars. But, to all the tamiya racers have fun spending another $400.00 on a car that is no faster than the EVO4. Tamiya's best handing shaft car is still the EVO3 version.
I hate to be the one to point it out but it's not the cars winning races, it's the drivers. How many big named sponsored drivers does X-Ray have vs the number Tamiya has?? The numbers don't match, plain and simple! The belt vs shaft debate will go on forever, give it up.

dont agree,equipment has to be as good as the driver.
otherwise why get all these drivers saying ive gone up woteva amount of positions since i got this car?yes bc its newer of woteva but equipment matters.

WOW that is what i call LOW, the top deck is lower than the motor and look low it is compared to the spur gear......those shocks towers look like 415MS or MSX shock towers, interesting to see what the final product with some more detailed shots would be...

Interesting mention about shock towers. Maybe for a hint to some of you guys with both 415MSX and Evo4... The Evo4 shock tower "if" placed on a MSX... would sit lower than the MSX tower.

Nice to see lower CoG. And the transponder mount always a personal to be attached. Looking forward to it!
