I believe he does. Just contact him via PM.

Thanks everyone regarding the upper deck mount question. Roy, I did notice the K Factory Lipo kit and wondered if it would be worthwhile. I think thats the way I'll go. Thanks All.

Cyrrus, curious why you think it needs to be "updated " for lipo or BL. Unless you have the earlier E4 , your E4FS should have no problem with most BL motors or Hard Case lipo's.

I have it on the car and i am very happy with it.
Also got Yodog's rear suspension mount spacer on the car and believe it or not i am the only TM driver at our track that has understeer now.
Need to adjust my setup a bit so i can get me a bit more steering as i am loosing time in our tight infield now

regards Roy

If you still interested in a E4RS loaded with hop ups and spares i got one for sale.
It is a DE version without the alloy pulleys as they tend to wear to fast for my likings.
For the rest i got some shine alloy bits and a very smooth rear diff and believe it or not understeer.

regards Roy

With front hubs you mean the steering knuckles?
If so, i know some one who has a pair and isn't using them.
He also got the red alloy bulkheads front and rear and isn't using them either.
Let me know if your interested and i will contact him.

regards Roy

Hey Roy, I'm sure thats what he means since Wolf never had red c-hubs available.
I get the impression we won't see those parts made again. Looks like K factory is the only source for alloy parts.

Sad to say but Me and Yodog switch to associated TC6 to be competitive and the REEDY race running open MOD.. His still got some upgrade parts for TM E4 spacers, and lipo battery tray.. I'm not really sure his going to keep developing and designing prototype parts for E4.. But he might for the TC6
