For some folks, perhaps. Just a shame such insular, bigoted and immoral institutions were erected in the name of that event.

For conversion to rally, what's the maximum ride height for the FF03 before binding or driveshafts falling out? Can this be extended by adjusting the shock length, or some other part of the...

Cheers to Capt N Slow and RC Infos, lots of useful info there.

All those mods just to obtain more flex make it look like a new car - I'd call it the E4EF (EF = Extra Flex). I wish TM would produce...

Comet RC of the UK seem to have closed, their website is down. That leaves the UK without a Team Magic distributor for the moment - I'm awaiting a reply to an email I sent TM about the situation.

Nice - I'll be converting one of my E4JS to drift, and this mod is of interest to me - what pulleys did you use, and what did you do to make them fit?

The Tamiya route has a number of options - the chunky 501 ones, the lighter 511 or the plasticky flexible Durga/DB01 ones.

I saw your postings on oOple about it.

I'm running one too - I put the b44 servo saver in, but used the carbon bridge as the thicker plastic one fouled on the front gearbox. I had to shave the...

You should consider doing a bundle of the spacers and the new chassis (no point bundling trays with the new chassis!).

Keep us informed - I'm willing to test the new chassis on the E4JS. I'm near...

I'm looking forward to it to. It'll be interesting to see how a JS fares v an RS, both sporting this chassis. I suspect the only significant difference would be weight, though the top decks might...

E4JS - setup, hop ups etc

I just wanted to post about the E4JS as it doesn't get many mentions and after a few meetings, I've got it going really well.

My setup is for medium grip carpet on Sorex 28JB rubber tyres in 17.5...

Given the budget, for new, I think Mi1 or Sakura Zero S (this would be my first choice - dirt cheap, newb-friendly gear diffs, spares cost buttons, can take parts from the full-spec Zero), maybe even...

That's my (inexpert) thinking too - the difference between adding anti-dive and taking away anti-squat is if the car is accelerating or decelerating.

Anti-dive has greatest effect in deceleration,...

Well said. I wouldn't mind taking a WGT around the Moto Arena, though!

When I heard the BRCA was introducing the new class, I was quite excited. Until I saw the cost of the kits - less than a top spec TC, but definitely more than the 2nd tiers ones (TA05 etc). Compare...

Capt'n Slow - cheers...
