thats nice. looks alot like a 4-tec chassis
yep it does, it looks almost exacly like it!
thats wut mine looks like now with my custom made carbon fiber chassis its alot lighter now and it flies
that is off the hook lol. Last night I broke my first piece on mt tec, I hit a side board doing about 45 and broke the rear shock tower in half LMAO
thats y i started using carbon fiber. its alot stronger and its lighter. i droped like 13 or 14 ounces on that compared to the stock setup. im thinkin bout goin into busness and making them for ppl that has the 4-tec to buy since it looks like traxxas is never gonna have a graphite chassis in stock.
Got my new parts installed. New stuff includes:
-Purple aluminum hub carriers (front and rear)
-Carbon chassis tub
-Carbon fiber upper chassis
-Carbon fiber rear damper stay
-Aluminum steering arms
-Aluminum steering servo mounts
-Aluminum heat sink motor plate
-Front and rear stabilizers
-New rims and tires
Also got a new body but it's not quite finished, I'll post pics when it's done.
Here's the car w/ new body. Still needs a couple of finishing touches.
Nice car rockstar
Ya I think im gonna be getting the hole graphite kit as soon as I get some money
Thanks DJ. I was trying to trade the car for a T/E-Maxx but nobody wanted it so I decided to keep it and dump more money I don't have into it I eventually want to replace all the plastic parts with either graphite or aluminum, but parts (aftermarket) for a TA04 are a little hard to find.
I like your custom carbon work, crazyguy. Where do you get carbon fiber sheets and how much do they cost? My local (65 mi from me) hobby store only carries the "popular" stuff so I'm having to get everything online.
http://arts-hobby.com/ it cost me $76 for the sheet and the diamond cutting piece. if u order carbon fiber make sure u wear a mask andlong clothes. it cancerous and it iches really bad when it touches ur skin
Cool, thanks for the info.
hey DJ hows ur car doin
its ok ive been going out at 2 in the morning and racing cars on my street which is fun and also have been doing some drifting on sand which is on the road amounting to about 15 foot solid car sideways drifts
kewl man kewl. how fast do u think ur goin right now
well my good 69 tooth sour gear got chewed up so I had to put a old traxxas gear on which goes to about 78ish teeth so it goes alot slower then it was before
aww dat sux man, but yea im gonna have to get a new gear eventually im running a a 87 tooth spur
well last night I let my friend run my 4tec while I ran my mii t and I don't know if the kid is just stupid or doesen't know how to run a car but he fricken ran it into a snow bank and now the esc isent running The steering works and thats it, any sugestions?
Might I also add that my mini t goes faster then my 4tec!!!!!!!
