hello, to balance the chassis using one lipo of 3800 or 4000, how many grams have you ballast the chassis and in which side?, thanks.

Try in the middle of the chassis over the battery for the best balance.

tim,
I just raced my E4 for the first time yesterday and the out of box setup was very good, a bit soft but very controlable. I didn't have any springs to tune with and the air temperature was dropping fast, from 60F to 40F. I had Sorex 24R with Tamiya soft inserts and it ran well. CS27s worked well when it was warmer. Camber was -1/-2 F/R, r.toe 2.5, f.toe 0, ride height 5.5f/6r, 30wt oil all around, 0 droop.

Gearing: I use a 4.5 FDR with the 13.5 (96 spur/44 pinion). For the 5.5 I would start at around a 7 FDR and gear up from there.

The manual uses CAD drawings and the steps are numbered for execution. There are no set up tips, hints or suggestions. I found that this was one of the easiest cars I ever built, everything fit pefectly (with the exception of too much thread lock on a couple set screws).

Anyone use Tamiya shocks on their E4? Curious on how the stock E4 shocks compare to the Tamiya 415/416 shocks.

you can run any AE spring just use the bottom shock collar for the tc5 so you can get the correct ride height.
Perfect advice! I also trimmed the lower shoulder so the pieces met at the top and bottom of the spring retainer instead of just at the bottom. It helped gives me all extra space I needed.

I'm thinking of getting a E4RS. Just want ask:

Can I use the front Spool(503234) that comes with the kit and put it in the rear and buy a separate front one-way(503131) and use it for the front? It's to be used as a drift car.

the rear diff pulley is on the center, the spool is off to the side , the belts will not line up in the rear. The best thing you can do is to make the rear diff a slipper spool.

sorry , in the rear diff take out the diff balls out and glue some header card( business card) to the diff rings then cut them to the same diameter as the diff rings, then tighten the rear diff and you should have a rear spool.
