New Graphite Hubs:
Xray have recently released some additional Graphite hubs for the T4 lineup. The 4° Graphite C-Hub has been out for some time and is known to improve steering on entry, and in general makes the car turn better. This has been the go-to c-hub on asphalt for many on the Xray team, though it is not needed on high bite carpet. The Graphite rear hub tends to make the car more stable, especially on corner entry. We are still working on gathering input on the new Graphite steering block, but for the moment feel that it should improve steering response. All Graphite parts are approximately 1g lighter than the Hard or Medium options.

Option Parts to consider:
XRA301196 T4 Graphite Upper Deck 1.6mm V2
XRA301226 Foam Bumper – Hard - highly recommend
XRA302165 Composite Front Suspension Arm 2-Hole – Hard
XRA302169 Composite Front Suspension Arm 1-Hole – Graphite
XRA302803 1.3mm Front Anti-Roll Bar
XRA303169 Composite Rear Suspension Arm 1-Hole – Graphite
XRA303802 1.2mm Rear Anti-Roll Bar
XRA305137 Steel Solid Axle Driveshaft Adapters - HUDY Spring Steel - highly recommend
XRA305242 Composite Drive Shaft Replacement Cap 3.5mm – Orange – Strong (QTY 4)
XRA305351 Aluminum Wheel Hub – Offset “-0.75mm” – Black (QTY 2)
XRA306191 T4 Graphite + Aluminum Fully Adjustable Battery Holder
XRA308264 4S Spring-Set Progressive C=2.5-2.8 (QTY 2)
XRA308276 4S Spring-Set C=2.7 (QTY 2)
XRA308286 4S Spring-Set C=2.6 (QTY 2)

XRA302384 Composite C-Hub Left – 4* - Graphite (ECS)
XRA308039 Aluminum Progressive Shock System – Set (QTY 2)

Specific to Carpet:

XRA301141 T4 Aluminum Flex Chassis 2mm
XRA302375 Composite C-Hub Right – 6* - Hard ***Modification may be required if they don't have the "ECS" stamp.

XRA302376 Composite C-Hub Left – 6* - Hard ***Modification may be required if they don't have the "ECS" stamp.

Also, is it recommended to configure anti-squat at my rear (aim is to gain more rear traction) without having anti-dive in front? Will having anti-squat at my rear helps to gain more rear traction?

Thank you.
What helped me this weekend with rear traction on a low traction track were the following changes to the stock asphalt setup
  • Rear shocks in position 3
  • Change rear rollcenter by replacing the outer 4mm shim with a 3mm one and the inner 1mm with a 2mm one

Hope this helps.

Default Conversion of XRay T4 2016 to 2017 kit

Just browsed an online hobby store which has a conversion package (mainly some new hop up parts) to convert XRay T4 2016 to 2017. The URL to that site is https://www.t2shop.de/epages/61746328.mobile/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/61746328/Products/01-300023-CK&Locale=en_GB

I'm wondering whether is it really feasible to fully convert a XRay T4 2016 to 2017 as the 2 cars' lower and upper deck are different, and some new minor changes in T4 2017.

Anyone tried that before?

Pretty much you need the chassis, servo mount, and the motor mount.

I would not bother at this time, the new car is out in 2 to 3 months, so you will be better of converting to the 18 then, I bet it will not be much more expensive than the conversion to the 17.

Default Xray t4 16

Going VTA on my t4 2016, does the xtreme racing 60g center weight fit on the 2016?

Questions?? Spring ID

Hey guys, I am looking for information on the factory shock coil springs that came with a used T4 2016 chassis I recently bought on this forum. The car came with 3 sets of 25 mm long springs that are marked with 1, 2 or 3 silver paint dots? I have looked high and low on this forum and the web and cannot find a rate chart for these springs.

Any help is appreciated.

Not familiar with any brand that uses # of dots.
Do yourself a favor and just invest in Xray springs. If you are carpet racing, get a set of 2.5/2.8 progressives, for the front and a set each of 2.5 and 2.6 for the rear.

Agreed.

This is the setup I normally run and I'd venture to say that most Xray and many other brand cars are using on carpet right now.
