Where did you end up mounting your esc? Where I have mine now, I thought I was going to have clearence issues with the steering arm hitting the esc. So I ended playing around with serving horn and sort of reversed it if you can tell in my pic...
Yes, it is the elite rc mount. I used the one for Hyper 10SC. Makes switch out motors so easy. The price is a little too much. But I took the hit.

I mounted ESC on top of the steering servo at angle so it does get hit by the steering arm.

The better fix for that is 1/8 wheel adapters and run buggy tires. I have the AKA adapters and didnt like the gap so I've ordered the Ofna ones...supposedly they fit perfect.

Default Alternate Bodies

Just wanted to let everyone know that the T4 body is slightly wider and longer than the stock body.

It should fit, I will post some pictures as I progress on this...

Default finally

ok, finally got my little tt to the track today to see how she does. LOVE IT. it however does tend to jump nose down but only when i am just starting to give it the juice. in other words the baby jumps seemed to upset it the most. it seems to fly fairly level when i get a little run up but when i make a mistake and have to start back up where the marshal puts me down sometimes i don't get much of a run up and she nose dives. what can i do about this other than not making so many mistakes, like that is going to happen.

Going to head to the track tomorrow and lay down a few laps with the new TT! Looks like everyone is liking it so hopefully all goes well. We should have enough here shortly to have a consistant class is anyone doing or done anything to nurse a healthy class in there area?

We will see what it does tomorrow. Alot of guy's are liking it they are just not wanting "another" class. Our area seems to have a marginal turnout for 4wd buggy and t4 so I am thinking that we could run them all together in the same heat just have them seperated for class placement. It does suck to have a short class and have to beg guy's to help out marsalling the next race. It's hard enough to get them to come out even after they race let alone do something they don't really have to!

You can also use Traxxas rear 2.2 truck wheels.(notice the mounting type - their 5-spoke wheels are only for their tires - dish wheels are ok)They are very good if you want something wider than the stock(for street use)

i use the hpi MT Mesh wheel #2195. IMO, best looking wheel for this truck and durable. Comes in white, black and chrome(if you want bling!). dont forget to use the adapter and washer. I just love this truck! Just fun to drive even for a novice like me!

Finally got a chance to run it today! This thing is a blast to drive. RX8 and a sc4x tekin 4.5 is a super choice for the truggy. Little bit of tweeking and should be real good. Ran 5-5-1 in the diffs and 35-32.5 in the shocks with blues on the rear. Going to lighten the oil a little in the shocks and go 3-3-1 in the diffs.
