Default Orion Vortex BL

Does anyone know if the Orion Vortex motor will fit in an E4?

It just fits, you need to remove the top transaxle support to get it in.

Have just noticed there are quite a few simularities between the 416WE/416X cars setup sheets and the E4 chassis.

Has anyone tried to put a 416 setup on there E4?

The suspension geometry may be similar but most TC's are set up based on the same principals so the adjustments may seem alike.
Did your Battery tray and outdrives arrive?

Not yet I suspect they are getting processed by customs / postal system. Customs is really quite variable sometimes it's 2days other times 2 weeks just sitting in Vancouver. So frustrating.

I just have an existing 416we and was curious what changes people have found necessary to get existing setups to work on the e4 platform.

Where here in the US can I purchase this E4 car and about how much? I've just found out about this car today and didn't feel like reading 221 pages to find my answer. Oh how durable is this car? I race off-road 1/10 & 1/8th scale and I want to try on-road 1/10th for the first time. I have a Xray M18 that I have raced with some buddies but never owned a 1/10th on-road car. Or is this car to advanced for me, if so what do you'll recommend for a first time on-road touring car. Oh the guys here are using 13.5BL for touring. I have test drove some of the different cars they have but looking for something different. Maybe this isn't the best idea but that's why I'm asking.

Wolfhobbies.com - If you are looking for brand new, I purchased mine used off ebay for 40% off.

The durability of the car will completely depend on your driving and the people you are racing with. Last race my front nuckle broke due to being t-boned mid corner.

Would say if you are going to race 13.5bl you are getting yourself into the deep end of the pool. Faster the class you get into the higher your initial fustration level is going to be.

I'm using tamiya black short springs no modification necessary on the E4 stock shocks but I will upgrade to the tamiya shocks soon.

the way the E4 cars handle the infield/turns/switchbacks is IMO what sets them apart

When I had my E4FS and ran 17.5 I was able to keep up as the 3 belt system didn't slow the car up. I'm looking at going back to the E4 again. I really liked running that car as it always handled well for me.
