Default Ek4 help needed!!!!

Hi folks,

after many years of pause to the rc car hobby I recently took my Thunder Tiger Ek4 from the shelf willing to drive it.

Soon I realized that things have completely changed, the midmad forum has gone, TT obviously hardly stacks parts any more and in general the trend goes completely electric.

are there any guys here from the midmad forum or other Ek4 pros that can answer questions regarding diffs and 2 Speed tranny?

thx in advance,

Michael

i am un-familiar with the model but something that may help, go to a site called "way-back machine", and type in the address. sadly id doesn't really work like a google browser. this link should bring you to the EK4 portion of the midmad sight, https://web.archive.org/web/20071003...4/ek4main.html. have to use this all the time to get into the "Monster GT Forums" lol

interface is kind of weird, on the top click the year you want the archive to look at, if there are vertical bars in the year section, it has something for those years and you are in luck, then after you select the year, click one of the dates to look at on the calendar below. that date is when the sight was archived and the wayback machine has access too look at that archive. some links will not work, pictures tend to have a hard time, and some forum threads just dont work for some reason.

Basically I also like to order rc equippement overseas (Asia, USA) as long as I manage to get a good shipping quote.
Sadly the Austrian customs department is working a little slow since the last three months... all the parts have already arrived in Austria but being held back there ((
