I got myself the E4 But still haven't had chance to run it been Busy at work. I've been running the MI3 for a few of months. But let see what this car can do on the track. I will be running the TM E4 on stock and 19T expert class at my local track using brushless motor and Lipo batt. This will be the first time I'll be using lipo so I thought this would be the perfect chassis for it.

Car have some flex but I think it would be good if your running rubber tire on carpet.

The car are very good in asphalt, too, with low and high grip, and rubbers tyres.
But, must work in the setup slightly, i run without the central rigidificator, HB springs, and HB sway bars, in medium-low grip track, and the times are similar to the National champioship, i feel better handling from the minute 4, because is good with the tyres, and not overhead its,i make poor fast lap time, but best time is in five minutes.

In addition to the Alu rear hub carriers, Kfactory release a good part comming soon, I know...;-), these guys are working very well and appreciate the suggestions.

I had my girst go with my new car yester day. Im runing modified with 5 cells and brushless and LRp Vtec 27 tires.

The box setup was way to soft for our high grip track. The was overstearing and was really hard to drive. Making the car harder in the front and raised the shocks made it better, but it was when I moved the rear shocks to the most inner hole the car started to feel better. I also changed the rollcenter. I but a 2 mm shim under the inner turnbuckle mount on front and a 2 mm shim on ballstud on the rear hub. I also changed to 1,4 mm swaybars front.

In the end of the race the was really good but pushed a bit. I would like more toe-in att the rear. 2,5 degrees wasnt really enough. Do anybody know where I can buy the new hubb carriers with 1,5 deegres toe-in?

The only negative part I found with the car was the belts. They seem to slip really easy. I made the side belt harder with tensioner but it didt solve the problem. In the first main the belt even poped of the car. Do anybody have any tips how I can make the drivetrain spinn frealy without having the belts slipping?

Cheers
