Kevin........ did I meet you at Scotty's race in April? Either way.

Well, the car is great. Peter Robinson won the Carpet Nationals. I won the Asphalt Nationals. We were both in the A-main in Vegas for stock, I was 4th and Peter 6th. I do not think you will have a problem running stock with the car. Just ask questions.

Man, I didn't think that race was happening. I thought it was at a different track. Oh well. I raced a 24 hour enduro 10 years ago so it should be interesting to see this one.

Yeah the rev4 and 4.5 share the same chassis. The pod has more room for the brushless and get brushed motors out the bottom.


As for setups I think front springs .20, side springs white or new unpainted .23, center red, damper tube 10,000 wt.

I'm sure some team drivers can give an exact set-up.

Hope that helps

You have the cut off the bottom of the steering arm/spindle, thus lowering the axle down. I just cut and sanded off the bottom and measured how much I took off with a caliper. Not to hard to do.

Lowering the steering block I get. Do you also have to cut the top of the Kingpin down and shave from the top of the suspension block to get the rim to clear? Anyone have a photo of their completed lowering job?
