Hi Marcos

Did that Core 5000 pack fit with no shims under the top deck?

I currently use SMC 4000 packs.

Cheers

Default Battery tray for lipos?

OK I bit the bullet brought my lipos and new ESC and 10.5T.

Got the lipos to fit my E4 with minor modification, I now have the problem of making up the lost weight. My car must weight 1500g, so i need to make up about 200g.

I can(and probably will have to) use some stick on weight, BUT i like to keep the weight as low as possible and I reckon a different battery plate would be a good place to start.

Does anyway now if I can but a replacement one that is a lot heavier, without all the holes, slots etc and maybe made from a heavier material?

Any advise or links most gratefully received.

The pictures posted on this site dont seem to have any weights on your cars, dont you have weight limlits?

Many thanks

This specific E4RS made the 1535 Indoor carpet rubber national weight (with everything including body)....it has 4 venting fans, novak GTB w/orion 13.5, and Orion 3800 with 2 weighs on the side. It used the low prof 9551 as well.

I just picked up an E4 at the iHobby show last Saturday. Finished the build in almost no time, this shows good quality that everything fit as it should. I had to modify a few parts to fit a hard case 3800 Lipo but now it sits in there like it was meant to be there. I'm very comfortable with the three belt from nitro touring cars (they rolled almost friction free after the belts broke in and T-boning was never an issue).

Question I have relates to the springs, does anyone know what the spring rate is like compared to AE springs?

Also does anyone know if a front diff is available?

I'm not sure about the spring rates. Yes front diffs are available the part number just depends on which car you have if you have 34 tooth pulley part # is 503903 or 503904 35 tooth pulley

E4 springs

1.2mm =10lbs
1.3mm=13lbs
1.4mm=17lbs
1.5mm=20lbs
1.6mm=26lbs
1.7mm=31lbs
1.8mm=41lbs
1.9mm=51lbs

you can run any AE spring just use the bottom shock collar for the tc5 so you can get the correct ride height.

Thanks for the answers. Looks like I'll order the diff and springs. It's also good to know that I can use the AE springs I have.

Default E4RS and E4 differences?

I have a E4 and was thinking about buying the E4RS

Can anyone tell me the main differences between the two?

Are the parts from the E4 useable on the RS, (i have a lot of spare E4 wishbones, belts, driveshafts etc..)

Any idea what parts, if any, can not be used? (Ill need to buy those spares)



And lastly, I am still trying to find anyone or anywhere that have made a heavy, solid battery tray for lipos?


Sorry for all the questions, its difficult to get information locally as the E4 is not used by that many people in the UK as the parts are hard to get here.

Default K Factory Shocks?

Forgot to ask are the K factory shocks a good replacement for the standard E4 ones?

Ie are they easier to build than the standard ones, I always find the thread on the shock top to fine and easy to cross thread.

Thanks Anthony.
