thank guys, glad you like the products,
mike, how the part fit the v4?
delivery time no bad (1 week -10 days)
cheers

Joe ,the service puts us brits to shame at times,not fitted it yet ,just running in a new engine ,so will drop it out later this week
for some clutch adjustment and fit then ,looks perfect though .
Besides the rear tank brace,which I know you have planned,now the servos are sitting solid and rigid,the steering is loosing
some lock due to flexing of the tall hollow parts that the linkages attach to,any thoughts  :) :)  even an internal alloy brace
would be a goof fix,that the long screw drops down into :unsure:  Mike ;)

The mcd carrier I am using is a mk1 ,I think the mk2 is the same there is a cut out where the brake plate drops in .this means the std
Jofer one is to long and  the hole is out (hence the second one ) but you still have to mod the carrier so it's a v4 plate with an evo 3
hole  :)

Some pictures of the x4 brake plate dropped over the V4 plastic plate (mainly for Joe ) and fitted to am Ultimate part number carrier
on my x4 Rally .  I am presuming that any new hop up carriers that leave the factory will suit the "4 series from now on " but who knows
in the meantime you have to use V4 Plastic parts for an alloy carrier ,or if you have ditched the enclosed centre diff holder for alloy ones
then want to do Jofer trays he is going to figure it out soon .

thanks for the pics mike
tomorrow i hope that i finish the x4 alloy parts, and post some pics, the alloy engine carrier.., well it is a problem, v4 and x4 suppose to be the  same chassis and engine carrier, but the v4 brake plate doesn't fit (in the pocket and hole alignment),its a little confusing part, i believe  mcd is coming out with a part that really will fit V4 and X4 brake plates in the future .(so we have to wait for that to happen before i start to play with a special part brake plate evo3/v4 combination )
cheers

Joe,no Problem,I think I follow  ;) you need to see a new type Alloy carrier and how the X4 and V4 brake plate fits ,In the meantime
anyone running an Ultimate part number carrier will need to modify it .
I will see what the std set up is you have done ,and if I may suggest options for any other mods people have done  :D  Thanks Mike :)

Spoke to Joe yesterday,he has done a tray set for the X 4  that works with the new centre diff set up holder and will post pics soon,
It looks good  :D :D.
He is also looking at the tank tray and steering cones over the next few weeks , the rear tray would be very expensive made from one
piece of 7075 and if the engine mount piece got broken an expensive replacement . So the other option is a three piece design which
is cheaper to produce and if need be for maintanance  :D
What he says does the customer want first the tray or the steering cones ????? well feedback please guys  ;) ;) :lol:

Personally I think you should make the things that MCD have not as yet released... definitely the steering cones, and i would also like to see some alloy front hubs.... and i still think that an alloy roll cage support would be a good idea.

Recieved my Latest alloy trays today ,thanks to Joe , for doing me some specials to fit my modded rally drive line ,and thought I would be
different to go red,they look Superb !!!! :D :D :D and tie in with the red head engine and Rhino red servos  :lol: :lol: .
Trouble is need a maintanance check over and clean first before fitting ,so engine and trays out ,sort it tommorow .
King Cobra have a set and are looking into supplying them as well for uk and europe dealers ,so if you are interested let them or me know  ;) ;)
