What happened to the 4-X thread? I remember there being a lot more posts and no - not getting this mixed up with the 5.0 thread.

Anyways ... seems there's more of the 4-X community on Facebook anyways.

It was here until about a week ago, then it was gone and this weak thread was here. All the good info disappeared.
Maybe a moderator can find it and bring it back!!

I think the thread was started by RC-MARKET and it appears that all their threads have been deleted. Even a search of their user name shows a blank. Perhaps they've been removed from the forum?

The original thread was deleted by site admin, not sure why but they don't do it without any good reason.

Can we ask that they at least merge the info that was in there into this thread?

Can we find out why? There was alot of good info in that thread that's now lost. However the Facebook group has a much better following for the 4x anyway...

Maybe because the reason was to promote the commercial bussiness? I love to keep te forums free of commercial posts, even when they have information the real reason stays put to attract customers.....

I bring my 4X with our own Top desk. Maybe my driving skill are not good enough, I really not able to drive fast with the original Al. bridge setup. That way I tried to make and build with a top desk
