Regards
Ed
THe B4 has almost the exact same handleing trates as a Yokomo Type "D" body or a little bit like the HPI aero2

Default XRAY T1 Factory vs TRF 415

Folks,

If you're interested, MarkP has posted a comprehensive review of the XRAY T1 Factory Kit comparing it with the TRF 414 at 3hobby.com.

Click "Read more ..." when you go there and enjoy!

He plans to write part II of review as he progresses with building both these kits.

Cheers.

Default 415 spool

as to making a diff/spool youl need

yokomo outdrive set for mr4tc and use the front set.
diff pulley for 415 and a bering that goes inside the diff.
that is all you need for a spool.
Trfracer,
Do you use diff rings? Or do you just tighten the diff bolt down enough to lock it up?

Thanks for the input of the spool.

only use diff rings for the diff.u dnt use them fotr the spool.
if your making a spool just tighten the bolt up as tight as possible.
if its a diff then it has to be adjusted correctly.
if your makin a spool use both the bolt and nut and glue it.

Or a (probably) cheaper option is too order a ready made steel spool off of Speedtech, then all you need is another front one way pulley, if you dont want to take your one-way apart that is

Very good quality item, it's what I'm using

Default protoform caddy

I tried it with rubber tires on carpet. I found it to be too loose for that application.

Did you have any problem getting it mounted low enough?

Default Setup sheet

I'm a little confused as to exactly what the Front/Rear Suspension Arm Spacer are at the bottom of the setup sheet.

Are these spacers which go below the Front and Rear carbon stiffeners? If so, why is there then any need for the upper arm spacers?

Cheers, Mark.

Not quite, I belive they are for the spacers on the inner hinge pin, for adjusting the wheelbase. At least that what i use that section for....
