Default Adding a T4 to my collection

I am adding a t4 to my colection for race day. I currently have a b4 and love the vehicle. I am going to put in a High speed servo but was wondering what to expect as far as driving. Is it at all like the b4 or am I in for a complete new learning experience? Does the truck drive differently from stock to Mod? The buggy seems to .

B4s are faster and T4s are better around corners

The T4 should feel easier to drive. With bigger suspension and more weight the truck feels more at home on rougher terrain than the buggy does. Actual test: I took my B4 and T4 and put the exact same set of electronics in them and matched the gearing. I also set the receiver channel (synthesized) to the same channel. I then drag raced them 100 feet. The B4 out accellerated the T4 and got there first.

Switching from stock to mod is the difference between a 4 cyl engine and a v8. Its a whole new world. At our track nobody runs mod anymore because they were only getting half a lap to almost a lap more than the stock guys. You make your call...

I found that gear set on Ebay. If I can find the email I will PM the number to order from the store directly. I believe the gears were $29+ $8 s&h. I made that claim based on an oval track. I was running a stock motor and an oval setup. The motor was hot but I kept up with him.

I was close to the same driver on the carpet roadcourse. his laps were about 1 1/2 seconds faster on avg.
