Well the track we race on was originally a tennis court so just imagine 2 tennis court and you have the dimentions. It has a green and yellow lead and is made by tamiya. I also run with a HPI ESC and a 3600 intelligent battery. By the way i don't understand what the wind of the motor is. Anyway thanks for the help!

Ok.... sounds like you have a Kit motor (Spec. Stock) I have found that they are very reliable motors. If your internal ratio in the car is 2.0588 like mine is, I recomend starting out with a 50 tooth pinion and a 96 tooth spur gear.
That will give you a 3.95 final ratio. Then what you will need to do is take the temperature of the motor through the slot in the can and try to keep the comutator below 180 degrees ferenheight. You want better acceleration rather than top speed with that motor so do not over gear it or you will lose spring tention and performence. Also try to keep the sum total number of teeth of the 2 gears between 146 and 153 teeth.Good luck my friend!

It has been far too long since I have logged on to answer some of the questions on this thread. To make it easier for people to respond without having to repost long quotes I will break my posts into individual issues.

Snowbirds:

I want to congratulate all of the E4 drivers for their efforts and results. And thank all those that chose to run the E4 instead of just following the crowd. we met a lot of people there but one that stands out is Ryan Cooper. He is just an amazing talent. Great Driver, Great setup man, and great all around guy. He really is the type of person that people in the RC industry are looking for to give sponsorships to. After meeting him and seeing him drive we couldn't wait to offer him a sponsorship. We predict great things in his future in R/C and want to help him on his way to being a headliner. Getting into the A-Main at Snowbirds is something we all would like to be able to accomplish. Not only did Ryan get there he made it look easy. Welcome aboard Ryan.

We would also like to congratulate "the Mikes" (Fischer and Pease) for their efforts. They had more than their share of hard luck but hopefully it counts as paying their dues for future Snowbirds visits.

Major congratulations go to Dave Ehrlich. He made the show in both of his touring car classes and finished 6th in each main. We are always in awe of Dave's driving and setup skills and consider ourselves EXTREMELY lucky to have him on board. In the last few months we have made tremendous advances in developing the E4 product line. None of this would have been possible without Dave's efforts and your support. We want to thank all of you that buy from us instead of spending your money offshore for making it financially possible to continue the development work that has made this car a contender with any top level car available. With your continued support we will continue to reinvest in this platform to get it to the top of the podium.

The xray axles are not what corn was talking about. While at snowbirds they were trying new axles which were the normal 2 piece axles. Took all the slop out of the car. Wolf and dave are working hard on producing parts for the car, and they have helped the car out alot. From what i hear be patient and there should be parts soon.

Wolf thanks for the kind words. ill be in contact for the reedy race. Lets get a bunch of e4's up there. later y'all

Sorry to inform you but all that slop in my car is due to the bearing holes being too big for the bearings. The slop you are refering to is taken up once the wheel is bolted on. There has to be atleast .005" too much gap and the bearings float around in the uprights. Changing the axels will not fix my slop issue. Its the plastic, not the metal.

Thanks.
That honeycomb axel has a threaded hole instead of a threaded bolt for wheel attachment. All you would need is a 4mm button head screw and nothing sticks out if the center of the wheel.
