I hope all my updating is done before then.
Depending where your at in MI it would be a I guess a 10 hour ride or so. Last time I was up your way I was about 10 years old and we went to visit my uncle in Flint. I think it took as roughly 9 hours or so from Harrisburg PA area. Harrisburg is roughly 1 hour from Frederick MD.

Ok its time to post about the E4FS rubber setup car with the one way that I just received. I traded a friend of mine for it. Car is brand new and never been run (just built). Now I read almost every page on this forum and not sure about all the other cars but mine is bone stock out of the box. I checked out the Wolf site and everything matches up with the E4FS with the One Way setup that is listed for rubber racing and has the 2.0588 reduction.

Ok It took me all but 2 minutes to figure out how to fit the DUO brushless motor in this car. I did put in the Tekin and will lightly sand the back of the chassis at the endbell on a bevel so the motor will fit perfectly and will make it better for the DUO motors as well. Still very minimal sanding needed and will be a 5 minute job to make look factory. The best thing so far is when I put the wheels on this car it is so free compared to my TC5 and some of my other 2 belt touring cars and this is will stock belts and the bears not being cleaned out at all.

After going over this car for just 10 minutes I very confident that it will work great for me. I did notice with the stock springs and oil it is a little bit too soft of a setup but not a big deal. Just super happy with what I see so far.

I looked at the car before I traded for it and didn't notice half the stuff that I did since it is mine. Can't wait to get it on the track in the next week or two.

Well my E4FS is getting closer to getting ready to run. I have not been in too much of a hurry as I want to make things right from the start. I been messing with the battery fit and have it down to the battery I want to run so I now I have that problem solved. Pretty much any pack that is 20mm to 23.5mm thick will fit. With the 2mm toplate raised 23.5mm thick battery for is the thickest I want to go.

The only other thing is when using the DUO motor for sure my amount of motor movement is small as the motor hits the brace that the side belt tensioner is on. I have many different spur gears and pinion gears so a little bit of a pain but still not a problem.

I did hook up the speedo and run some runs testing out the nes speedo and new programming. Everything is smooth and the belts are smooth with no skipping under hard accelerations and then smacking the brakes and then hard throttle with no problems. Will see when I hit the track if it stays like that but shouldn't be a problem with the excellent belt tensioners that are included in the kit.

Guys,

Finally i received my E4RS2009. I still dont open the box as im with too much work.

I need your help on a base setup for :

- Asphalt Outdoor.
- Rubber.
- Clean track with little dust on the outside areas.
- Little bumpy on some sections.
- Just a little technical on the infield with a 195 feet back straight.

Im using Novak GTB Speed + Novak 13.5 SS PRO Brushless motor on NiMH Batteries (no lipo allowed until January 2010).

On the setup tips please include info on FDR for the car, i will switch to 48P spur and pinion as i have many 48P material laying around and no source of 64P locally.

I will only have chance to practice on Saturday and will have my first race with the car on sunday lol !!. Las race i used a Hotbodies Cyclone with 3.91 FDR and i won the race, help me to be close to that lol !! (here we race 8 minutes each heat and finals).

thanks a lot guys,

If I have a chance tonight I will post some pics of my new E4FS. I have some stuff from Wolf on the way so I think my first time on the track might be possibly Thursday or Saturday. Will see how it goes.

Yes ... I should have a new side belt tensioner and upper deck mount here soon.
Direct from the Wolf Man

He did mention about the new tensioner so I might call him and place one on order so when it has then I can get it right away.

Was looking at the new Novak Ballistic for 17.5 and possibly 13.5 because the way the endbell is it looks like a great fit for the E4 cars and since it is so tapered at the the end I bet you can get full throw on motor movement. What do you think?

Do you have the Wolf battery tray? I ordered one of those and he was saying I can gain a little more room with his tray for the batteries. If thats the case it would be great because my Yeah Racing 5K pack fits but with the stock platic tray I can't get the tray fully closed even with the topdeck raised 2mm. The way it mounts in the front makes you raise the pack some at an angle to get it in and this is part of my problem. Not a huge deal because I know of many other packs that will fit so I will just buy one since they last so long.

10.5, 13.5 17.5 and I think 21.5 as well. Like I posted on the Ballistic thread I never ever liked Novak products but this one has me looking hard at getting one. Man saying that if you knew well is going to make hell freeze over.

I have to think they would be killer motor in the E4 for fit and maximum motor movement. That small end looks great for fitament in an E4. Black in color don't hurt either as I like black anodize.
