Default T4

I like the all black look I can't wait!!!
Also may have a lot of driveshaft chatter with that many degrees of steering

I hope you're joking, he was

$600 is roughly what we would have to pay in the UK for a T3'12

To Exotek and/or the other companies who make conversions etc.

Your first job looks like making a pair of new shock towers, firstly so we can use the 5th body post at the front, but also so we can have the standard spaced holes from the T3'12.
That way we can interchange between the new shocks and the current items instead of having to buy entire new sets of shocks etc just by changing the towers

I spent a few hours at the track last night with my car running it back to back with my T3'12. Our track still had a decent groove in it from our big race last weekend that we had 128 entries at but it had dried out a little and the car I TQ'd and won with was a little off of what I ran Sunday in the mains but was still very close.

On the 2nd battery the T4 was already running the same lap times as my T3'12 that I have been running there the past 4 weeks. Everyone always says that a new car is faster. Well before the big race last weekend I replaced all plastic on my old car, bearings, axles, ecs, etc. So it was as new as could be and shimmed to get any slop out. New car was easier to drive also and made tons of traction all around.

All in all I think almost everyone will like the new car. We shall see how it fairs next week with 4 of them running at IIC!

Eric, are you bringing both cars (T4 and T3 '12) to Las Vegas? It would be good to hear a comparison between the 2 of them during practice in Vegas.

I would doubt it if he can already do that much better with the T4.

Yes I will bring both. I will run the T3'12 in stock due to it not being available. The T4 will run in Super stock and is OK for that per Scotty. Ive already asked about it.

Andrew Hardman will run in 13.5 and Mod along with Drew Ellis. Paul will just run his in Modified.

Don't worry. Xray is most likely going to release a T4R which will probably cost under $300.00. It won't have as many orange anodized parts and it won't have the woven carbon fiber chassis, upper deck and shock towers, but it will be the club-level car.
