Why do you need extra low arms??
Do you use to long springs?
The RS arms(new type now) are low enough to do the job
About the K-factory parts, the E4 Alum. 7075 Middle Shaft Mount (k2103)
isn't all that needed.
It is nice and bling bling and perhaps gets you car up to weight without adding some lead to it but it is also expensive.
Give me a hoaler about the bulkheads as you know i can get my hands on some red one for a lot less then the K-factory price
The 3 degrees alloy C-hubs might also be a option instead of the middle mount.

regards Roy

Front arms are all the same as far as i know.
Rear are different between the FS and RS if they are still the original arms.
Also the alloy part in the arms are gone with the new type.
Nice car by the looks of it

Hey that is a good looking car With the fs chassis I prefered the plastic bulkhead, a little more flex and what not. Sorry again about that arm man
Also I had flipped the steering crank around to get rid of bump steer. The guys at my track who where running the car more regularly than I was had real good results with that. Have fun with her and treat her right, she will be missed.

Anybody have any news on the updated car ?? I keep looking at the TA06 but I still believe the E4 is a better design. I know in VTA and GT it's perfect. The tweaks in the upgraded version should make it a solid performer. Somebody give those folks at TM a kick in the ass so they don't drop the ball on this chassis.

I feel the same way too. Just looking at TA06 in comparison with my JS, the JS looks way better. The laydown shocks is just a gimmick, there's a video of someone running the TA06 in Japan with the shocks in the normal position with a front shock tower. I also don't like the front belt rear gear tranny setup. That is so 1st gen RS4. Add to that it has a layshaft way up there when everyone has their layshaft down as low as possible. It just looks very clumsy and there is no comparison to E4.

Really the closest thing to the E4 is the old FSR car.

Don't get me wrong...I'm no Tamiya hater. In fact, it's the only NEW car I'd consider buying BUt....little things caught my attention like
1. No consideration for batteries that use banana plugs.
2. Wire routing looks even tougher than the E4. Anybody notice the pics of Satoshi's car where the battery wire is contacting the lower belt ??
3. Even the Tamiya junkies are questioning the layout of the IFS. It just seems wrong. The angle of the shock lever is odd.
4. Compared to the E4, the chassis extensions for the servo and esc seem quite wide. I guess thats why they had to angle them upwards.

Bottom line....the E4 is a really good chassis. Compared to many it's a breeze to work on and the layout just makes sense with little compromise. Little stuff already has fixes like that bulkhead at the left rear that makes motor movement a bit tight.
It seems to me that the changes to the newest version will make the car even better.
I think I'll stick with it. C'mon TM....give us your support.

What really is needed is better parts support. Really the parts prices for TM is a bit outrageous. I can get Serpent parts for 25% less. Why should TM parts be so expensive. Its not like they're XRay. If their parts were as durable as XRay, I wouldn't mind the cost by they're not.
