Teamassociated.com information on the new RTR's
"Team Associated’s RC10T4 racing truck wasted no time in proving itself in world-class competition, with the T4 sweeping the ROAR Modified Nationals Truck title with the Reedy-powered T4 just a few weeks after the truck's initial release. Team Associated is proud to offer the National Championship-winning T4 truck in a Ready-to-Run package, now upgraded to "Race-Spec" standards with a Reedy Radon 17-turn motor, the latest LRP "Ai" digital speed control, and a Team Associated XP2 radio system.
The T4 RTR truck borrows the distinctive forward-swept front end and rear-mounted shock configuration featured on the RC10B4 buggy, optimized with the new co-planar steering geometry. This suspension design provides maximum front-end clearance and minimizes bump-steer while maintaining desired Ackerman angles. Trailing front axle or optional inline steering blocks and axles can be used to adjust steering response. The suspension arms feature a “captured” hinge pin design so that no e-clips are used. In addition, the T4 includes the heavy-duty front hinge-pin brace and bumper for increased durability.
The transmission uses the same 2.6:1 higher torque-capacity differential as the RC10GT. A double-sided slipper assembly (first prototyped by Team Associated in 1989) has higher torque capacity, easier assembly, and lower rotating mass than comparable double-sided slippers.
The T4 chassis provides a super-low center of gravity by lowering the motor, battery, and shock mounting positions, enabling Associated’s R&D team to design a sleeker, more realistic low-profile body, greatly reducing the large, unaerodynamic “humps” over the rear shocks as seen on older-design trucks. The T4 Ready-to-Run comes equipped with strong, dish-style wheels and high-traction racing-compound tires.
The T4RS Ready-to-Run is the Team’s state-of-the-art competition truck, and uses all the same, readily-available AE chassis components as our race-proven T4 kits. The T4RS RTR can also be upgraded as your budget and skills allow with the full line of Factory Team T4 hop-ups."
