I'd still put my silver can powered TT02 Type S against this car any day.

I've heard of the Tamiya silver can. But don't know much about it. They way the 4Tec is it could really only race against itself. Or maybe the Vaterra I ran in last video. Gearing options are currently to limited. I'm still new to racing. But it's done good on the layout I run F1/USGT on. I'm planning to try the new VTA tires that Protoform is releasing. That's what the one group I know of had planned to use if they could get a spec class for it.

Little over a year ago I would have thought racing could work with it. But I've had a mindset change with RTR and racing. I do think a form of RTR racing is needed.

I can't see that happening. While I did expect a brushless version to follow, from what store owner has heard, Traxxas has no plans to. Price would be too high for the limited market touring cars have. Besides, they know that what most will do on their own.

The 4tec, like the V100....is a parking lot cruiser. These cars are onroad versions of bashers. They line up in a USGT or VTA race next to serious cars, they will constantly be at the back of the pack.

I agree that it's not meant for either USGT or VTA. It took me getting into running USGT to fully understand why. Currently there is only 1 RTR designed for touring car racing. The BSR BT-4. But it's not easy to find the RTR version

The director of the group in racing with did do laps with my 4Tec. And thought a spec class could work for it. And I know of a group that was trying to get one formed. But hasn't been able to get people to commit to it yet.
