I just finished my car for next year. I will be working on a mod setup for large asphalt track with med traction. I just received the TM spring kit and will post results in the future. The lbs on the springs seem to be off a little compared to other brands. I have a spring compressor gauge to test.

I would like a better look at that motor cooling fan setup, where did you get it.

I too want to know about your fan set up as I like yours better than the one I just finished. I also just loaded the new Tekin software and let's just say I am looking forward to this weekend.

Its a very simple setup, clean and super glue two fans together side by side...let dry and mount using a spacer between the fans and the mounting point. I mounted mine to the front hold down brace of the rear spur shaft. Run the two fans in series and put a plug on the end. very simple but effective. I take closer pics if needed

Stunning car
Where did you get the red top bulkheads from??
Or did you just polished the original alloy one and painted them??

cheers Roy

Well I ran today. Not good because of traction rolling. First run I was on an A Main run... traction roll. It was like that all day until my "scrub" main. The car is fast enough. I got some good compliments on the car and I was not the only traction rolling. By the main I got the car to push. Throughout the day raised the camber links on the bulkhead 4 mm front and back, went to a 24lb front spring, 17lb pound spring rear and the last thing I did was mount the rear shocks on the inner most hole and the front shocks 1 hole in from the outer hole. The shock position change is when it stopped traction rolling. I used SJ-R 36R and still traction rolled with that hard tire until the end. I still like the car and it's fast if it stays on all four wheels...

So I guess the issue of traction rolling was not necessary due to a poor setup, since others were experiencing the same problem. Was the track prepped well?

If you went out of the groove let's just say "you knew" you were out of the groove. Yes it is very tacky as your tires get build up on the outside edge. All cars traction rolled at some point or another but some got theirs under control. It was a throttle control thing but it slowed you down obviously because you had to slow down. The car was fast but as the day went on the traction was crazy. Go outside the groove and you either pushed or the rear got loose.

I started with 2mm over ride height front and rear then ended with 1 front and rear. I am going to start over when I practice/run next time. I think it's the track actually Brian as at some point everyone was rolling including the following each other Xrays. 3 degree blocks... yes.

Wow tons of traction can cause havoc for everyone. I would try more droop as it will allow your car to roll alot farther before it traction rolls.

Sounds like you have it fast though and thats great to hear. Keep working hard as you will get it all figured out. Alot of extra learning as the E4 is just alot different than most cars. Thumbs up to for not just running a car that everyone has and stepping out of the box a little. You will figure it out and be rewarded for that.
