Skiddins..Thanks for the heads up...I took that shim out and it still clears...But you still have to shim the post up to make it clear the servo..does that make sense??

Mi4 arrived today, fit and finish are awesome, the ball cups are the real deal, smooth and free with no slop. working the rear diff now, and the front spool must be half the weight of the Mi3 one

I'm one happy racer

Not really, I don't have an Mi4, just thought I'd try to help.

Jeeze! Thats awesome! That should balance out SUPER easy now!

You running a lipo tray? I dont really like the locaters, the cat has them to, it a pita when you have a few packs, but if you get them, use shoe goo to stick them on. I will have to figure out something so the pack wont slide into the pinion

i use one of two things, either my PPD bottom lipo plate with the lipo attached with double sided scotch tape, or double sided scotch tape only, the lipo does not move.

just finished mine. but went the 5 cell route.

Yeah but the chassis has the 5 cell layout. So a normal 6 cell hump tray wont fit, correct?

Looks good!

Noticed you didn't swap the spool (the front belt is not parallel to the chassis). Shouldn't you swap the spool also (as you did with the center pulley)?
