Thanks Troy C.
i was not expecting those temps from a mod. and on asphalt. So im guessing 180 is about the limit. Once at that point start taking timing out?

Yup, the gear seems pretty good, you may be able to go up one tooth on the pinion or maybe split the difference by going to a 112 from your 114. Get the best fan on the motor possible and boost it up with the speedo. I would keep the boost and the turbo timing the same. I dont know if the values are the same from my speedo to yours but i would start with 15deg each and work up from their. 180deg is safe, 190 is ok, 200+ and your pushing the envelope.

Hi Paul-Brian from TS,
Quick question about the XB4--do you set yours up on a station??
I understand the importance of a station for on-road but many times I hear people saying it doesn't matter as much for off-road. If you do use a station for the XB I assume its the Hudy 108905??
Thanks!

I see the pictures from ETS and Worlds and its hard to tell what fans top guys are running on their motors. I know the rule in some parts of the world allows 40 mm fans, and for us under ROAR its 30 mm max. Do you have any suggestions? I'm working to make sure I keep my Reedy 4.0/5.0 and HW 3.1 cool for our last 2 series races later this year.

Hi Brian, I do use set up gauges on my car but i modified my touring car ones to work. Im not going to say that it is necessary at all but they are nice.
yup the 108905 is the system and i think you might need the 108928 shim as well for the rear axle's

The best fans that i have found are the Superior hobbies one's, the R1 wurks ones and the Gravity RC fan. i feel that the performance of all three are virtually the same, R1 and Gravity are almost the exact same. At Reedy, Marc, Victor and Christopher all went home with one of those three fans and seemed impressed by the flow of them all. I would definitely suggest getting one of those three if you don't already have.

thanks

Quick question about the new NT1 shocks, I measured them against the T4 shock and are identical from what I can see. The only difference was overall length my guess is due to a longer shock shaft. The specs for the NT1 says they're almost identical except for the shock body and the shaft, what's the difference in the body? And can. Use the T4 shock if I just purchase the new NT1 shock shaft?
Want to know because I always buy an extra set of shocks when I purchase a new kit and already have 2 extra sets for my T4 (3 total), I build them soft, medium and hard so I don't have to do it in the pit and waste time just to not like the feel and have to build all over again.

My vote is for the Gravity RC fan--HANDS DOWN!!!!!

Did you check part numbers? That may give the answer you are looking for.

If you missed the US number one touring car drive Paul Lemieux's call-in interview tonight. Boy I pitty you! It was most informative. Hey! but guess what you can see it on demand and looped on DialedNTV! As quoted by his himself," man this is an exciting rc show that you have!"

The part numbers are different as far as I can see, but I'm not sure f they're different because the T4 part numbers are listed in a set of 2 and the NT1 are listed separately.
IMO they're the same, only difference s the shaft, which is probably longer.
Can't wait till I get the new NT1, the orange makes it look sick

OK, Did a bit of research. The T4 shocks are different, The Rx8 and Nt1 shocks are the same though. Both the nitro and the T4 shocks are sold in pairs. the shock body's and the shock shafts are different but the seals, caps, pistons etc are the same. so from nitro to electric the shocks will not be compatible in any way.

Thanks

Hi, Gravity does sell a fan. It is PN GRC:350, A limited amount are available in the first batch, so they may be hard to find. I know RC america has them in stock.

Thanks
