hi, what Motors do you drive on your E4RS? i have had a GM 9,5t but it is to long, so i need some motor which has a conical backplate like the Dr. Speed from GM. Or did you have any Modifications like a other holder for the middle belt (#503211)?

We have LRP, Orion, Speed Passion and Novak tried on this specific E4RS...all fits without problem (without modification)....only modification we did is shave some aluminum off from the rear side brace and middle belt mount in order to fit lipo like 4800 and 5000....just a ted for 3800 Orion.

Yeah, Marco is more experience with mod type motor...I ran mostly 13.5 17.5 stocker....I would say 6 is very much a good ball park figure for 9.5 motor. I ran the 3.5 with 10 final drive and car ran great.

Yes Marco....my buddy is MASTER or wiring, he cut every single wire in that car to the exact right lenght without looping..then he cut all the carbon fiber piece by hand, and CA the edge of the whole car to the piano black condition.

Thats why it took him 6 months to do this E4....this is not really 100% a E4RS, it is a E4 at the beginning. Now...it is a E4, with E4FS chassis and E4RS parts....is a E4FRSS....

I am very interested to see what G4RS parts can be use on the E4RS...please share.

I have gearing ordered to get down to 3.2 and up to 4.5 for my 17.5. Should be in today.

Try lefthander-rc for Pinions over 47 and Robinson Racing for pinions up to 47 and 78, 81 and 85 tooth 64 pitch spurs.

I'm personally running a 78 tooth and 85 tooth Spurs with pinions ranging from 45 to 50.

Nice! You'll like the new carpet there. Pearl blue 68 Camaro for VTA. I will be in attendance, hopefully racing. I need get some decent 4 cells ready. I'm trying to adjust the wheelbase on my JS without grinding control arms and have come up empty so far. I'd like to use longer shafts and shims to add wheelbase adjustments to the car as needed. I better get my practice in!

The E4JS and E4JR are the exact same car. JR comes ready to run. They sure do look nice.

I am thinking about picking up the e4rs car for this season. I've been running the losi and i've been fairly decent with it but I'm thinking of trying something new. I mostly run on an indoor asphalt track with really high traction. I am just wondering how this car compares to the losi, i know they have similar design concepts with the center weight. Also, is this car pretty good right out of the box or are there a lot of extras needed to make it competitive? Thanks
