I have an intellect hard case and it is just physically too big

Any suggestions appreciated

Stangas

I have the 3Racing 3700 hard case in mine. Its a tight fit, but no dremmel or shims required.

you need the onboard toe set at 1.5 then use the K factory 1.5 degree rear hub, or the Wolf Hobbies Rear hubs that will be available soon.

Hey Marcos, set up looks close to mine only a couple changes. What kind of track are you running on?we run on a track that is prepped with soda. i am running the team magic 13lbs spring all the way around with no swaybars. When you shim up the fron roll center in the rear, what does that accomplish. Something i was going to try 1mm all the way around, but never got to it.

Are you going to be attending reedy this year?

I have the e4-fs and recently i bought a speed passion ver 2 motor ( 4t ) to put to the car.
The spur gear is 112 and it seems that i cant put a pinion gear lower than 25 because the motor is touching the rear belt .
Is that normal or the motor is bigger than the other motors.

It gives the car more foward traction. I'm going to try 1mm all around the front and rear this week and see what it does, I can't make it to the reedy race this year (running low on funds)

Go to a 114 spur and see, with the E4's you will need an assorment of spur gears due to the limited room that you have for motor movement.

If I remember correctly with the E4 we are limited to a range of teeth between 140 and 150. So if you add 112 spur and 25 pinion together you get 137 teeth total which is outside the range. You need to find your ratio within in the range of total teeth for proper motor adjustment.

Go to a 116-118 spur and then you'll be able to get the ratio you want for you 4T. I ran a 4.5 on carpet this winter geared at 116/24-25 with no fit issues.

Thanks to Jonny Socko for the reminder. This has been mentioned a few times but the thread is getting so large it is really hard to backtrack through the whole thing.

There have been a lot of questions about pulleys. Not all of it has been accurate. There are two internal ratios used on the E4s. The E4FS uses the 1.8 internal ratio and all of the others use the 2.0. The E4FS uses 34 tooth pulleys on the diffs and 18 tooth center pulleys. All the rest use 35 tooth pulleys on the diffs and 17 tooth center pulleys. All the cars use 17tooth side pulleys. Side pulleys and center pulleys are not interchangeable.

The manual has an error on the part number for the 17 tooth center pulley. The correct part numbers are as follows:

503155 35 tooth diff pulley
503201 34 tooth diff pulley
503197 17 tooth side pulley
503222 18 tooth center pulley
503236 17 tooth center pulley

There has also been a lot of talk about mixing and matching pulleys to compensate for belt stretch. We have tried this and have not had any good results.

Umm... I think my E4 has a 35 and a 17 for a 2.0588 internal. But I didnt count the teeth on them. So please tell me Wolf, since we are running it 4.2 final its important that I know if all my small pullies are 17 teeth or not.
geez man I sure hope it is 35/17. I have the E4 C1 optimized for rubber.
Thanks in advance Wolf.
