I'm thinking black...for the stealth look...

but, actually silver wouldn't be a bad idea..I wouldn't have to get them anodized.. I would just have to strip the orange and polish...hmmm...it would add contrast..hmm...

Any suggestions on anodizing? I agree a silver would look really nice....

P.S. A proper RC track doesn't have boards, it has asphalt and curbs

I heard Canadian Andrew Hardman grabbed the TQ so far in Mod TC in the third qualifier at the Halloween Classic in Ohio tonight, driving his XRAY T4.

Im having a issue on corner exit, on power the rear becomes very slippy. But on corner entry its nice and stable. Im running in vta at the moment so im using the 31mm tyres.

It's vta, I believe that is normal, at least that's what it's like down under.

A bit more front droop. Harder front spring.

Got my T4 Friday. I must say A++ for Nexus. My chassis was flat and perfect. Looking forward to building it. I hope we see some option parts coming soon after. MARTIN get to moving on those toe blocks and motor mount options! Cash in hand ready to spend.

Can anyone comment on how much different setup is for VTA compared to T12?

Last time i ran sedan, we were still running foam tire.
Do most people use tire warmers or is it not really necessary?
