Should I use composite dogbones on a one way with a stock motor?

Also, since the outdrives on the one way are metal, I suppose using the dogbones with pin cusions is pointless?

Thanks

the combination of metal outdrives and composite dogbones really isn't good. I had the plastic outdrives with a front diff and i kept breaking the composite outdrives, so i started using the aluminum ones.

Sup guys need a big help here

I have a rtr tc4 bought it for drift
But my friends upgraded their tamiya to novak brushless motors so were playing drag racing for onroad cars now
I bought my self a MM7700 for this tc4
W/ fm radio ofcourse

My question is

What battery should I run this brushless?
Please don't say lipo
I'm looking for at leas 6 cells only cause my old charger can only charge 4 to 6 cells
Any ideas?

Do I need to change any parts on this tc4 rtr/ since this MM7700 is fast?

Thanx guys

3800's will be fine. They will feel like theyare newer with the brushless set up!!

All TC4 parts are interchangeable

Foam. I know Im a little behind the times but I try to get what I can within my budget due to the limited means I have with my school job. Hopefully in the fall I will have enough to really step things up

Default Factory Team Edition goes bye,bye!!!

Hey guys,

Thanks for all the help. I am getting out of racing. If anyone is in need of a nice backup roller (Factory team edition) I am trying to get rid of mine. I will let it go pretty reasonable. It's on ebay and in the for sale forums.

Thanks again. You guys saved me a few times.

Josh
