Default NEW TEAM MAGIC E4JS II

Team Magic is proud to announce the all new Team Magic E4JS II in the market of performing entry-level 1/10 Touring Cars.



This new car is based on multiple National Champion E4RS II and E4RS II EVO racing cars.

At Team Magic we don’t think only to the top competitors, but also about the club racers and casual drivers, who race for pleasure and friendly competition without having to pay out excessive sums to have high quality material nor have to spend hours of maintenance between two days of training.

For these drivers, we have created the E4JS II which is based on the ultra performant E4RS II and E4RS II Evo platforms, which have already more that proven their ability in competition.

To lower the costs, we did not compromise the quality of the materials, nor the quality of the kit. We opted to reduce the development costs by using what we already had from the E4RS II and E4RS II EVO models, using existing parts such as the E4JR and E4JS shock absorbers and created of a new type of carbon which we called « Eco-Graphite ».

The new parts (upper and lower bulkheads, centre layshaft mounts, steering bellcrank) are realized in the same « HARD » plastic which has already showen its ability on the E4RS II and E4RS II EVO (arms, uprights and steering blocks).



The features inherited from the E4RS II EVO:

Team Magic utilised numerous elements and parts of the E4RS II EVO to create the E4JS II, which is so in no way a touring car of reduced quality.
  • Identical suspension geometry to the E4RS II EVO
  • Centred and aligned weight
  • Perfectly symmetric Flex
  • Central flex points and 3D Flex system (optional)
  • HARD suspension arms, uprights and caster blocks
  • ST hardened steel suspension shaft
  • 7075 Aluminium hard-coated spur gear holder
  • Low-Friction belts
  • Adjustable belt tension via eccentrics
  • Gear differential with 4 composite gears
  • Quick release battery holder
  • Low Friction ball bearings
  • Ultra free pivot balls and ball cups with minimized play
  • Heavy duty body posts
  • High density foam bumper

Team Magic E4JS II new features:
  • NEW – Narrow 2.3mm ECO-Graphite chassis
  • NEW – 2.0mm ECO-Graphite upper deck
  • NEW – 3.0mm ECO-Graphite shock towers
  • NEW – High quality constant volume shock absorbers
  • NEW – Matched and optimized shock springs for TC
  • NEW – HARD plastic lower bulkheads
  • NEW – HARD plastic upper bulkheads
  • NEW – HARD plastic ball raced steering bell crank
  • NEW – 7075 Aluminium motor mount compatible with brushless and brushed motors
  • NEW – HARD plastic centre layshaft mounts
  • NEW – High Quality 48DP spur gear
  • NEW – Steel differential outdrives for an extreme durability
  • NEW – Universal driveshafts

The E4JS II will be available in october 2013 – more information soon !

''Eco Graphite''

AKA, that fibreglass that has a carbon pattern that the knockoff-clone companies use.

I will let RC World Depot to answer about price

I just could say that in Switzerland and Germany, the price of the JS II is about 3 time cheaper than the EVO.

Hello

Not a feedback from users, but from distributor

Since its release 2 months ago, we sold +/- 140 E4JS-II kits in our area. We don't have any bad feedback about it (no users complaints about quality or technical problem). I think if the customers havn't been satisfied, we would find many complaints on the web, and there is "nothing" on the forums.

So, I think users are happy

If there is any E4JS II user reading this thread, please post your own feedback here, thanks.

Wish you all a Merry Christmas

Lionel (co-developper of EVO and JSII cars)

Here's some feedback, "Wicked wee car"

I have the E4 RSII Evo, love it, nice car, was looking at running an ARC R10 in our stock class at our club, then got wind of my local distributor looking at doing another small order for TM gear, he was looking at an RTR just to bash, I said to check the new JS out and glad he did.

1st, They are cheap, a great price tag for a car that looks great, builds great and drives great.

2nd, Ease of Build, like the E4, everything is in its individual bag, making the build run as smoothly as possible, you don't open another bag till you have finished the first, the carbon is of good quality (yes it is a carbon/FG sandwich, but hey who cars lol) and everything lines up nicely, the plastic bulkheads aren't an issue, as the TM plastic is SOLID, the only wee thing on the build was that I left the center layshaft mounts loose on the chassis untill I had the top deck screwed down, to keep them nice and straight and eliminate any binding.

3rd Driving, out of the box setup wasn't the best for my home track as we have like NO TRACTION, and I mean NO TRACTION, but after one run it was on the setup board, tweaked and back on the track on fire, drives just like the E4, so neutral in mid corner, just holds its line, yet so directional at entry, just nice.

All in all, the only thing it needs is alloy hexes, but you can get them from anywhere for next to nothing. It is a great car at a great price, who cares if it doesn't have all the flashy alloy blingy bulkheads, it is solid, drives well and responds to setup change nicely. After the one raceday so far with it, two other guys are looking at dialling one up also, it just can't be beat for value and performance. The best thing is that from a "Fathers" point of view, it isn't going to break the bank if I wanted to get my kids into racing, and they would be starting with a solid piece of kit.

Oh and it doesn't come with sway bars, but the kits for these aren't dear either, and most sellers would swindle a deal for you anyway.

Thanx for the reply guys. Very helpfull. Good to read that its good value for the money and the most important thing about it, It drives great!!!!
My last TC was a TA-05verII R Version and had it for like 3 seasons. Great car but now I want something different.
Looked at several cars like the 3Racing Sakura IX sports. And almost bought it till I saw this car... haha.
The car looks really good...so this gonna be my new car for next season.
Now lookin for availability in the Netherlands.

Thanx again guys
