The E4D isn't a new car but a E4JS with a locked diffential in the rear and a differential in the front,drift tires and a different internal drive ratio to the E4FS or E4RS.
The front and rear drive ratio are different to eachother also.
So if you have a E4,E4RS,E4FS or the E4JS you can turn it into a drifter with minimal costs

I am bit worried concerning the batteries since I use saddle pack batteries because I own an old car. I will test them on a friend's E4FS car and then decide about the purchase.

Is anybody aware whether TM will release a new car? I have seen a new E4D car on their site.

On my other car i have all the alloy parts from Wolf and that one ahse a lot less slop in the suspension and wheels.
Now going to try the alloy wheelhubs that are used on the E4JS and hopefully all slop is gone.
If you want those K-Factory parts cheaper then they normally are then use a certain not to mention shop in Hong Kong

Thanks Roy.

Even at the unmentionable shop in Asia (both of them), its still a pricey part. My interest in the KFactory rear hub was the 1.5 deg additional toe. Just wondering if the 1.5deg outboard toe is better than the 1.5deg inboard toe from the suspension arm mount. The outboard toe worked better on my XRay but wondering if that is different on the E4 due to its pillow ball mounts.

As for the second part, that is the only alum. front side rear hinge pin mount available. I find that its awfully expensive for such a small piece of alum. Just wondering if it is all that necessary.

Also, can someone explain the differences in the suspension arms for both front and rear? I noticed that there have been changes. The front arm that I recently got looks different than the ones I originally had on the JS. I'm not sure if they're FS or RS arms but the Wolf site has deferred all front arms to the JS part number. Has all the front arms been consoldated into one part?

About the rear arm, there's the one with the alum. rod in it from the old E4 and the JS all plastic version is there another one? I think I saw one somewhere that said that the alum rod one adds 1.5deg toe. Can someone clarify this?

Again, thanks for all your help.

Use the Wolf hobbies rear hubs,cost even less and the bearing fitment is even better the the K-Factory and they have them with zero toe in and 1 degrees toe in

Just use the stock part works great

Both suspension arms have new numbers and both did loose the alum rod in them

I have tried all suspension arms that are out there but the only difference was between the E4FS and E4RS rear suspension arms

The newer belt is wider, but the K-Factory one are the better TENSION type belt...it is not the width of the belt that made the car better, it is the K-factory one will not get loose after some run. I really don't think the short belts are really need to replace, but it is well worth the money on the SIDE BELT (only) from K-factory.

Thnks Roy but, i'm staying in malaysia. Bit xpensive for u to post the item. The E4 is not using the single steering system. So the holes for the earlier version steering system would fit? And do i have to use the extra posts?

thnks again

If you use the 08 version of the RS top plate you could use the old steering system for sure.
Don't know for the 09 version tho.
You can trim off the extra "ears" from the top plate to match you old plate.
The RS tp makes your chassis a bit stiffer.

Good luck with it
I drove mine last weekend with a Tekin RS and Redline 13.5 and lipo.
Man!!!!! that combo is sick so fast
I not going to try MOD as this one is so fast you never know what past you on the straight
Driving with a FDR 6.94 with the others driving with a FDR of 4.5 and 4.94 i got more speed then they had.
Even a 10.5 driver who was there wasn't that fast.
So with a FDR of 6.94 the car was to fast to go at top speed into the turn at the end of the main straight.
Normally we do that to get a better momentum and speed.
I am going to try a FDR of 7.plus for the next race to get it dailed in more for our track.

I have notice that their is too much vibration on the front end of the car with a spool when turning the wheel, I'm concern that this will affect the handling of the car when cornering since this will cause a lot of wheel hop due to vibration. Anyone experiencing this issue with their E4?

I hadn't noticed with mine.
I may not be able to make it to the track this weekend but if plans change, I'll be there.
We can compare notes.
