I had placed an order through a local hobby shop and I don't know what happened to it either but that was the second time something like that has happened to me . I don't think anything Wolf had done affected it in that case but perhaps the payment method you used failed. Sometimes if you use a credit card and use a different shipping address the card providers could have denied it. Either way , Wolf would have been more than happy to send your order. I had to call my hobby shop and Wolf to clarify the happenings with my order. It took a few minutes to figure out what happened but rest assured , the order is now on its way. At least mine is...

Thanks and regards
I'm sure that everyone would also recommend changing to the aluminum uprights as well. Either the K Factory part or the Wolf Hobbies part will help considerably. I use the K Factory uprights on both of my E4's and they are great! The Wolf parts are less expensive and just as good. The Wolf axles are a great option part as well.(far less complicated and available in aluminum or Titanium)

First crack..
I didn't care to get my first car pre-assembled with all due respect I like to know if somethings wrong it was my fault. My L3 kit should arrive here Monday and dammit but If maybe next month if you still have it.... maybe P.M. me and or I will you... bad timing.

Hey guys,
What are you all using to adjust the aluminum turnbuckles on the E4?
I didn't notice that TM has a wrench specifically for these and I'd hate to use pliers or something damaging like that.

I think I'm gonna make a 7075 turnbuckle wrench like the Lunsford one and see how it turns out.

Isn't it TM has a black fancy looking wrench to adjust those tinny little turnbuckle..? I know all my E4 kits has 1 inside the box...it is a black aluminunm wrench with mutiple sizes like Tamiya type...kinda like 3mm thick too.

Bought both cars used...

The wrench apparently disappeared.
I went ahead and made one.
I'll post a picture later.
