Rick,

I think moving the battery 2-3 mm more to the side will balance the chassis even better. With the 1380 Roar minimum weight we probably don't even have to put weight on the battery side and have a perfectly balance car.

Default Thinking about getting E4js

I want a better chassis for my sidewinder 5700 combo. Is from a Hpi Flux I have. Is this chassis lipo friendly because that's the issue I'm having with the Hpi, hardcase lipos fit only by stretching the upper and lower decks slightly causing tweak. I don' really race but I enjoy setting up a "track' with dots in a vacant parking lot near me. ( the business closes at night leaving the parkin lot empty)

You can get the aluminum lipo tray from YoDog right now he got quite a few available this will sit the battery lower and have enough space to not shim the top deck.

Can anyone give me some rough measurements for what height the battery can be and still fit the chassis without shimming ?? I'm using Zippy 4000 hard case packs. They're pretty low profile but these are hard packs with the humps on bottom. car isn't here yet but If I need to order a tray from YoDog I might as well do it now. Thanks

The zippy flightmax hardcase 4000mah fit perfectly into the stock setup E4RS.
The humps fit nice into the slots of the stock battery tray.
If you want bigger lipo's, then you nee Yodays battery tray.
I have been running the zippy's last year without any problems.
The car was only i bit to light(just under 1300 grams ).

cheers Roy

Thanks Roy, I'm racing VTA so to meet minimum I have to add weight no matter what. I'll see where I'm at once I get car and gear all together.

I have a tough question for any of you. Currently there are a couple of good advertisements for E4 cars or goods in rctech. Especially the one for seller "Weezy". The other Is "cablecrawler" but I don't know if he has picks posted yet. I'm in the market for a second E4. If one of you experienced guys can take a look at the ad and tell me what you think of items and price...I'd appreciate it.

Here's the link to Weezy's ad: http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...ic-onroad.html

Gimme the links and i will have a look at them.
I have a hopped up E4RS008.
A lot of K-factory and wolf parts on it and yes Top parts also.
This because i wanted a red car and now i am the only one in my country
I don't think you need all those parts in VTA but i will help you get a bit more weight and make the car even more bullit proof.
Only waiting till Yodog has his new damper spacer ready so i can order it and maybe the new chassis but don't know that for sure.
Still love my old 008 and not going to sell it ever as it got me hooked on TC racing again.

regards Roy

http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...ic-onroad.html

This is the link for the ad by "Weesy". Lots of stuff. Not so much interested because it's bling. Always like parts that are functional. Much of his stuff is just good spare parts. The cars include a Dave Ehrlich chassis that has quite a few scratches on bottom but still a usable car. Add the other cars in and the price doesn't seem to far from reality.

"Cablecrawler" doesn't have his pictures posted yet but he e-mailed them to me. 2 very nice E4FS cars. One with quite a few upgrades and 1 with minimal upgrades. Here's a link showing what the more expensive car has on it as it was purchased from Wolf Hobbies. (look at the cart on right of page)

Nice ad from Weesy but the pics are to small to see how the parts really are.

The other ad is for a new car(FS) with some of the hop up parts i also have(all from K-factory)
Both look a good deal tho.

regards Roy

I'm looking forward to it to. It'll be interesting to see how a JS fares v an RS, both sporting this chassis. I suspect the only significant difference would be weight, though the top decks might have an influence.

I don't think any well known driver is sponsored here in U.S at this time.
