I am a bit amazed at the number of problems some people seem to be having...

I've had My E4 for a couple of months now and have run everything from 13.5BL to 5.5BL 6 cell... and the only thing thats happened is that I've stripped a belt because I got a rock caught in it... I even had the steering knuckles in upside down and it still performed well

How about a few more people posting about how WELL the car goes...

Hey I totally know what your talking about. Same here... I've had the E4 since release and I've only recently broken a rear CVD Joint. Car has seen its share of crashes. Very little wear and tear on the car. Car has been running great. Car still looks new other than the broken cvd.

A+++ for quality and durability. Car handles like a dream.

I would suspect that it is cheaper for a couple of reasons - they don't have to pay for the mouldings for the parts that they are using from the original E4 and from looking at the pictures they are making the pulleys from plastic instead of alloy. Normally the manufacturer don't pass on the cheaper price - where did you see the price of the FS and is there a release date yet?

Havnt driven any car yet,besides my E4 27T stock..the car is AMAZING!!! is that enough m8 . i think the car is real good, i havnt seen any problems yet.small ones but doesnt affect the car so much that it would be a disastre (spelling)

that bothers me is the BIG gap between the rear hub bearings ant the hub itself...i can see how the bearing moves in the hub...im running 2.5 toe,and im almost out of toein whan i turning the wheels out..i hope they have solve that one...(CA drop on bearing,outside, and let it dry,then it would be ok.

How's the car working on outdoor asphalt? What spare parts do you recommend to get with the kit?

I donīt had problems with the car, it works really well in outdoors with a proper setup, the car is fast and very easy to drive in any condition, but the pilots always want something more, and to try new ideas emerge.
I testing the car, in some vary conditions, only with 4.0,4.5 BL motors and good IB cells, for now is slightly slower than my old car, but i think i needed to work a little more, i feel lack a bit of acceleration and aggressiveness.

I not broke any part, but a good spare part are, front and rear arms, lateral belt,
and more blades ;-)

I like to probe, the new steering for FS in the E4, and i think that the new differential outdrives are in plastic and not have blades, is possible a good idea, too.

I have managed to get a set of team magic springs - can I assume that the standard springs which are described as 1.4 * 7 is the same as the 1.4 in the spring box?

Thumbs up

The springs for the G4 car works great on stock shocks. there is one thing, to get lower RH, the K-Factory shocks is a must.
