I've picked up 2 new in box cars with extras in the FS section within the last month at considerably less than retail. I'd keep an eye in there.

Exactly the solution I was looking for. I am using foams so it is a bit of a trial and error thing really as not so many clubs race TC on foam anymore...
Front diff almost always makes the car easier to drive, probably because it's more forgiving on cornering lines, another reason I like it, though there are times on rubbers you really need the drive of the spool.

I drive on foams all the time at our club, specific class we run on foam tyres, lots of grip any time, no warmers, no traction compounds needed, good fun.

Looks like it, apparently with optional carbon fiber inserts for stiffness.

Hi,

German Version:

Im Vergleich zum alten Auto ist folgendes neu:
Chassisplatte
Topdeck
Motorhalter
Strebe zum Topdeck (optional)
Ackermann Platte
Querlenker mit Carbonversteifungen vorne&hinten (optional)
Innere Aufhängungsstifte
und natürlich die neuen Aufhängungsblöcke

Oh, und Xray hat den Schaumstoff vom Rammer etwas härter gemacht.


Englsih:

New for the T4'14:
Chassisplate
Topdeck
Motormount
Brace connecting to the topdeck (optional)
Ackermann plate
Suspension arm f&r with carbon fiber stiffeners (optional)
Inner Pins
and the most obvious change:
the new Pinholder system

Regards,
David

The suspension arms got the same measurements like the old ones? I mean can we reuse the old suspension arms or we have to buy new ones as spares?
