Team Magic E4FS Chassis by Murdock
Team Magic has been known for their high quality touring car chassis’, and recently released the E4D which is a plastic chassis designed for drift. I decided to go for the higher end foam spec model badged as E4FS. The chassis is 90% built. All you do is add shock oil and assemble bumpers and body posts. Some tech specs on the chassis.
E4FS Main Specifications:
1/10 EP Sedan (pre-assembled)
3mm carbon fiber chassis
2.5mm carbon fiber chassis
3mm front/rear carbon shock tower
Main gear–116T 64P
Caster block–6 degree
E4FS Main Features:
Most lipo battery & brushless motor can be used
New 3mm carbon fiber, 96mm wide narrow chassis
New 2.5mm carbon top deck (with two new alum. posts linked to chassis for strength)

Stage 2 (Electronics & Accessories)
Installed a Novak 10.5T SS Brushless motor with GTB ESC. The rear suspension has the shock standing straight up and down. The front suspension the shocks are laying down.
Stage 3 (Hop Up Parts)
Installed the K-Factory Solid Rear Axle, K-Factory Front One way, and K-Factory Aluminum Steering Crank. My steering is Super solid now, and drifts much better with solid rear axle.
When I was mounting my Novak SS brushless 10.5T motor I found there were some clearance issues with the sensor part of the motor. It will only allow me to mount it one way. Luckily I think I will be able to clear the 31 pinion I want to use. Unless you have to have a sensored motor you will get better clearance with sensorless motor.
Lipo battery mounting:
The E4FS has spacer to raise the top deck to clear bigger Lipo batteries. My 5000mah had issues fitting inside the battery compartment. I did get the battery in there, but could not close the bottom tray. Use the kit spacers, and it should fits perfectly.
