Ran the car for the first time last night. Car was working great the driver needed help. I ran diff putty in the front and noticed a huge diffence in the car. Seems to rotate much better through the corners. I need a little less forward bite but time and tuning will take care of that.

Its all to do with moments of inertia. And it's on track that the performance counts. You can be innovative all you want, but if it doesn't perform (and hence sell) there is no point...

Having said that... Truely centralised weight is a different story...

I don't know, my TA06 is just as fast as anything else I've driven...

I sort of thought forward bite was something you couldn't have too much of. How would you describe the behavior of a car that needs less forward bite?

Greetings to all. I from Russia and consequently my English am bad. There is a desire to buy e4rs9-2 but while in hands hasn't turned doubt. All owners of the given model I will ask to answer a question - in the steering mechanism and a forward suspension bracket there were the same backlashes or all is made now reliably? Simply you compare Х'Ray T3 and the own model on a subject backlashes - tears come in to my eyes

I've had the car for a few months now... I have added aluminum steering knuckles (xray T3 or Photon). I've had it since December. Its been on carpet since then but am finally getting it on asphalt. I have a 13.5 in it now. I was running boosted and the casr was hadling pretty well. What issues I've had with the car are from my tuning ability. Haven't had a full track day at the track with consistant track time yet. Will probably be putting 7.5-10.5 in for mod. The car has a few chassis stiffening options that will help with the speed from mod.
The biggest thing that I have replace have been the tiny bearing in the C-hubs. There one on top and bottom. Just like any other kit the car will surprise you on some of the hits it can take.... but on the other had you hit something just right it might brake a unusual part.
I like the car a lot and really looking forward to opening it up on the Asphalt track this summer.
Let me know if you have any specific question and I'll do my best to answer what I can.

I am considering buying the TM E4RS2. Some guys at the track have had the older version and weren't sure on this one.
The only TC I have owned is the Associated TC5. I was considering the TC6.1 or the HB Cyclone.
If I do decide on this kit what are some good parts to stock up on?
I also was noticing the weird angle of the bell crank to the servo horn and the one pic with an extension on the horn. Is this an issue with building the car?
I plan to race it in USGT or 17.5 blinkie.

Hello

Bellcrank angle / servo horn position is exactly the same as Xray cars... and there is no problem with. You can adjust it with shims under pivot ball. I personally use a servo saver instead of servo arm, with spacer to obtain the angle I wish.

Parts to have are rear uprights and front steering blocks.

Keep in mind there is no "older" version of the E4RS II, as this car is 100% new and has no common parts with the 3-belts E4RS.
