Cool thanks that's all I need to know... I retired my orginal E4 for well over a year and start running Schumacher but this last weekend I gave It a another try and wow I did not really pay attention before how this car handles specially in MOD... So I sold my MI4LP PRO and got another E4 RS 09'...

I'm trying to get my E4 ready for the REEDY RACE next month...

Dude, Didn't I mention on Sunday that I had the K Factory spring kit on my E4?
It seems a bit expensive till you add up what they would cost 1 pair at a time.
I'm hopefully picking up the TM kit this week and you can try out some setups at the next race. By the way, the TM kit costs about $10 less than the K Factory but only has 8 pair instead of 10.
There is 3 different KF spring kits. Soft, medium and hard. I got the medium kit. I can't remember the part number though. They are like 21lbs-30lbs.

Rick,

It looks like the K-factory springs but I did not ask you, I will get the soft spring kit and I'm waiting on my E4 RS 09' ..... I also got a front belt tensioner. Man the front belt skips really bad without a tensioner.

Are you going to make it at the Visalia Car Show race? It's pretty cool racing in huge crowd of spectators.

Cheers KIM...

Hey hi guys, i got a question on on spool axle for the front, can E4RS's spool fit on E4JS? How about the drift version of E4? is there a replacement part for the spool for the drift version?

Almost all the components from the E4RS fit the JS and drift. I have a spool axle on my JS so it should fit the drift without any problems.

Spool is on the parts list for RS/FS because at one time you can buy either of them with that option as part of the kit. However the spool is a hop-up part for all the other E4's.

Most parts are interchangable.
Except the parts that make the 09-10 Wide motor version different.

Quick question. I have an E4RS, Tekin RS ESC, Fantom Duo17.5 Motor. IDR is 2.0588. Running a Mazda Speed 6 and R9 body. Run on average, a track that's like 90'x40'. Usually like an 80' straight at the end of a long sweeper. I have access to the Hotwire. What is a recommended Final Drive Ratio for a Semi Novice driver. You know, suck but not as bad as you used to suck. Last 2 races I havent come in last and that's with my old LRP Sphere ESC. 1st time running a Tekin. Also , for such a small, low/medium traction asphalt parking lot track, What is a recommended gear selection for said FDR + or - pinions and spurs. I have a 104 and a 110 64p spur allready to work with.


Now, I have a couple good setups for said track. But not with a Fantom Duo 1 motor. Not the Duo 2. 17.5 When my friend and I went to put the 203?, the latest software on my esc, this is where the idiot part comes in,..... I forgot my sensor cable for my motor and we still setup the base settings and applied those. It would not let us save the advanced settings for like turbo until we saved the basic settings 1st. So we did. Then we did the hotrod part of the settings, timing, turbo, delay. If I remember correctly, we did a delay time of .3, an rpm of 5442/ 20k I believe. Now, we saved the settings, calibrated the radio. I got the cable put once I got my car home and started it up. It started flashing 1,2 and 6,7. Wrong motor type. Okay, So I check to see what it is and it at profile 3. Brushless/F,B,R. Well if it were profile 6(custom settings), why would I not have turbo? Does the ESC need to be redone with the advanced settings now that I put the sensor cable on? I am assuming for some reason it is running brushless uncensored, when it's actually got the sensor cable on and it's not allowing the turbo to kick in. I was running a FDR of 4.26 with my LRP and it was quick. Not fast. Having been told that with the Tekin, you need to gear as if you were running a 13.5 motor. Hence a higher FDR or around 6.0 to start.

Once we finished programming it at work, since we knew I didn't have the sensor cable, we didn't wanna chance giving in a couple fistfulls of throttle. So we just turned it off and when I got home was when I put the cable on and discovered I had no turbo.

Sorry for such a long story but I wanted to give you as much info as I could think of to hopefully give you a better idea of what I did, tried, and failed to accomplish. As well as a possible solution. Thanks for those who read this and any help would be much appreciated. Got 1 week before I get to race my allmost new car, brand new esc with hotrod software. I ran against a few locally and I could be in the lead and by the end of the straight, a tekin guy would just hit turbo and leave me like I was standing still!!!! SO I BOUGHT ONE. Thanks, Vinny

Hey all,

I have an E4RS with std rear hubs and also have kfactory 1.5deg aluminium hubs siting here. Will this give me an extra 1.5deg of rear toe? What are the standard hubs???

Cheers
Phill

I never used option part, but I think that is what K factory designed this alum hub for, giving you extra toe As for std hub, I guess they are zero degree
