Cool, sounds good.

I presume I could use this item as a battery bar then:

3483434879786,HIRO FACTORY,3200YEN,SY002B MR-4TC SD ALUMINUM BATTERY HOLDER BLACK

I can't find any pictures of it though.

ok.racin the evo4 tonight on carpet.tight technical track.
ive remover the centre to braces on the main chasis and top decjk to hopefully produce more flex and grip.has anyone done this?
i was gona try the standard 415 suspension arms but after putting them on and seeing how far the front is from the chassis i put the new set back on as it seems to far away from the chassis and will understeer,plus you have no wheelbase tuning.

The only thing I don't particularly like is they both use a rubber ring around the rear cup to hold a loose pin securing it to the shaft. If the ring snapped in a race, bye-bye pin and bye-bye front drive.

Both ours also use the bomber shaft, which is a v good piece of kit.

The rear uprights are good if you use threadlock on the bearings to hold them in tight.

To replace the battery bar, either use a Yokomo MR-4 bar and enlarge the holes a little (outdoor car, crashed many a time, never lost a battery) or use a TT-01 alloy bar modified a little (indoor car, not crashed but equally never lost a battery).
can you bring both cars so i can have a look at your mods and the bober and square stuff?thanks

We didn't use an ali one, just the standard composite one. 10 times better than Tamiya flimsy plastic. Stick an Evo4 sticker over where it has 'Yokomo' in the middle bit and nobody'd ever know.

Not as yet. I've ran with a ball diff in the front as well as the one way, both with the plastic composite material. I am ordering the Aluminium One-Way gear just as a precaution and for bling value, but I haven't had problems with the plastic. Have you?? If so, what sort of problems have you been having??

The IV comes with a front one-way diff and a rear ball diff but if you want brakes just buy a rear diff and put it in the front
