Nice build Al.

Keep an eye out for the wide nine-ribbed gear cover though, the one you have on there is from the World's era cars and trucks.

Nice to see some proper TQ21 rear tires. 8)

Did you send your T-4 to Novak for repair or did you fit the orange on/off switch?

Daylight finally Al, congrats for that nice Graphite, I also like those old AE stick packs, I had the later yellow ones when I was racing as a kid. I wouldn't mind a tad more light on your pictures, keep up the good work and sharing 8)

Thanks Geoff, I knew there would be something, I think I have that gear cover and will change it out. The t4 was gone through by my lhs guy but I have one that has the correct on-off switch but didn't acquire it until after I had this one redone. It does kind of stick out and I may change it.

and if i could be a little picky..................... :wink:

on your steering bellcrank, you should have those small 8-32 aluminum nuts to attach the screws to the chassis (no washers). the bellcranks ride on those.

See, I was being nice and not pointing out every little thing since this was his first showing...

But since you're dumping out the can of worms I opened...There's the issue of the motor guard (not originally in the 6030 kit), and the servo and Rx are far too new...

Sorry Al... :oops:

All in good fun. :lol:
