I'm running brushless using GTB ESC so it will be a tight fit.....

I also used the tamiya spring, See how that works. But need to get some more HPI springs.....

I also need to get a low profile servo, standard servo is sticking out too far.

Well so far soo good. sucks that I can't run this car probably not till about next year....
Every E4 is tight out of the box. Trust me it will free up a good 30-40% from new. WD40 will help a lot. I personally used some 30wt shock oil, a couple of drops on each belt worked a treat.

Yes, this is true, but after 10-12 packs the car are more free up. I have a good setup base for rubbers in asphalt, the car have a good aceleration and is more easy to drive with a quit pass trought curves.
Here is my setup, i like if someone probe it, i would like to comment on the good things and bad, of course.
In other hand, i talk with Patrick Jasmin (JPproducts) for make a front spool, more light, i think the car will be even faster with it.

The E4, now, is the champion car in Taiwan for a 23T motor race. Its unbelieve corner speed that I never seen~~~especially the "lightning turns" (i do not know how to explain the countious turns in real English... ). I believe there will be some officelly option parts to release very soon.
Hey... question for you on this page: http://www.rchome.com.tw/cgi-bin/top...art=108&show=0

What's going on toward the bottom of the page? Mainly the last picture. Just wondering. Looks like he's having some sort of problem with the cvd in earlier pics. It appears he put something like heat shrink tubing on the joint? Did it work for him?

Look at the picture above it. It looks like the blade for the dogbone spread which lead to a little bit of damage on the out drive. I suspect the heat shrink is to stop the blade from spreading again.

Saw my first real live E4 at the track tonight (Trackside Hobbies) looked like a very nice car. It qualified second in 13.5 rubber tire its first time out so it seems to have a lot of potential

you know, i hate to ask this but if possible, or if someone knows, how does this car compare to the JRXS-R (asphalt/rubber)? They both seem very "centrally" oriented (the losi more so) but i dunno...anyone?

I get E4 recently and my friend play losi JRX, I find that losi is more stable but less punch due to heavy weight if use the same motor

also, I find some problem on E4 dog bone it easy to break
