Well , got my new car build last night , like all new parts , BUT

Seems like there has been a mistake with the rear battery stop on the inside against the belt. If you use the flex options you can not place the optional stop with the left servo mount and some shims. You can also not use the nut as on all the previus T4 cars as the hole has not been drilled in the chassis.

I have used the speedo capasitor placed abow the belt , so it placed between the battery and the speedo.

The front one on the right servo mount works Great.

Did I miss something in the build or is it a mistake?

I don't have the new car yet.
But I have run that centre link on the '16.
I put a nut through the hole that's almost under the belt to act as the rear battery stop.

Attached is a pic of a friend's T4'17 that he is about to race at IIC this week. Seems to be a decent solution

Agree BUT then you remove some flex because of the battery stop.

Well , lets see some more ideas or maybe a reply from Marin Hudy , i think a pladtic stop of some kind using one or 2 of the flex holes without touching the flex bar

What about using the optional adjustable lipo battery stops, and puting the rear 'L' bracket facing inwards instead?

Scrap that, would foul on the layshaft mount

In that case, I might be going with the 'piece of carbon Shoe Goo'd' to the chassis'

Could you use a hex screw (901310) from the plate into the servo holder so it did not touch the chassis, that way it would not affect the flex?
If you want to use the hole to adjust the flex replace the hex screw with a normal counter sunk screw through the chassis.

Any other ideas

Hi Skiddins

Looking good , have you just super-clued the carbon piece on the chassis ??

Some of the danish drivers have used a 5g weight from balancing a car-wheel.

Lets hope that there will be a new part to be mounted on the chassis

thanks Michael
