I see on the Demon Products site they seem to have the car covered completely with spares and what not.
I think CML are TM agents here in the UK also.

OK, Muchas gracias, Marcos, these are the setups you post some time ago?, my base setup is very similar to the second, tomorrow and the sunday go to the track to test, i print the setups and test in the track.
First, i go to test some ideas, and new parts, and next i put your second setup, i like more.
I mount, the Alu K-factory rear hubs with 1.5š with the pivot block in 1.5, too, i think the car having more traction.
I have done the same thing that Marcos, but with HB sway bars.
A friend, buy the Kfactory sway bars, and the feeling is very similar.

Olivier, now i have a mixed car, with E4 normal chassis, E4RS top deck, RS motor mount, is lighter, RS rear diff (but now go to mount the original diff, because the nylon diff, have a much wear in the axle), i run with 4.0, 3.5 and 3.0 motors, nylon pulleys in side belt, Nylon c-hubs and RS news shocks.
The car run great, excelent handling, also with Lipos and 4.0, is more fast than the best touring gas cars, with 400$+ motors, but i feel, i need more and best setup to go at 100%

Greetings, TM boys, Luis C.

Sorry, I do not understand the question.

I use, the lightweight battery tray from RS, in the E4, without problem.

SMC 4000 mah lipo makes for a perfect fit in the TM E4 FS-C1

Ok....between E4FS and E4RS, the different are the follows...

(1) Rear ARM are different on FS, front both use the same arm
(2) Ball diffs F/R on FS, Ball diff R on RS and Spool on F
(3) 3 degree on RS and 6 degree C-hub on FS
(4) Single steering pod on FS and Dual on RS
(5) Upper and lower chassis different between the 2. Thicker on FS
(6) Mid pulleys are diff....same on side pulleys
(7) No bumper steer spacer on FS, 5mm on RS
(8) Steel front alum rear CDV on RS, both alum F/R CVD on foam

Can someone point out what else are different...? Other internal or chassis different between the 2?

Apparently, WOLF is probably the only place in the planet earth has FS parts and kits, not even Team Magic Base in Taiwan has 1 single parts and kits. And by adding the above parts together....buying a kit is a lot CHEAPER then upgrading/stocking the FS parts............is that correct?

Thanks everyone....
