That JConcepts shell looks fantastic. Looking at these cars is making me miss my old ones badly. Might have to re-invest for the summer!!

Dude.
A 4.0 in your D4. Is this a speed freak chariot for some crazy speed running?

HAha!!! The car is really fast indeed, but I use 5cells if you can clearly see. This is a very nice electronic setup, lightweight and fast!!!

I'm very satisfied with the car, raced the whole 2008 Championship without any mechanical issues at all and got the 2nd position overall for the Greek Championship. In 2007 I raced a CAT 2000 through out the year and the last race with the D4. I was 1st overall for 2007! The CAT was also a very nice car and had it since 1996!

Let's see what will I succeed for 2009!

As I've mentioned in the past, I hope that someday I can come and race in England together with you guys. I really like your electric off road style!!!

Didn't spot the 5 cells.
The antenna tube kinda 'hides' it.

No one's picked up on your front shock tower, stu!
Pics were a bit dark.

Default D4 Front shock tower

hey fellow d4ers

Ive have created a new D4 front shock tower to eliminate the gear box tops breaking and not had a single breakage as of yet.The protype has been tested for the past three months which you can see on my car in an earlier post on page 1 of this thread (discostu) I now have the final product as you can see it has the outer hole removed on the shock as it seems to be very rarly used and also it has two holes under the mounting points this is for the anti role bar as to make this fit you will need to remove roll bar mount from the gearbox and also you will need to remove the fixing point from the front bumper and drill two holes in line with the lower gear box mounting holes in the bumper.

These will be for sale by the mid april as im waiting on the mounting parts.

The kit will include

1x Front shock tower
4x Mid fixing screws
4x Mid fixing spacer
2x Role bar screws and nuts
2x Bumper screws
2x Lower fixing screws

The kit price will be £20 plus postage

stu
