I can't answer TC, cuz I only race off-road. But in my opinion, for the T4, you will probably want to run the CO27, P2k2 (Although magnets like to fall off on this one from my experience.). These motors have more torque, so they'll tend to perform better on a small course. If you run on a large course where you can mash the throttle quite a bit, I would suggest the Epic X Motor.
From there, it's all what the motor likes.
Generally, purple springs, and either F Brushes or Reedy 767's seem to be the popular choices. In my experience, the F Brush normally makes it so that you run 1 fewer tooth on your gear then when you run with 767's.
Hope this helps ya out.
Question for Brood. What is your current lead times on orders? Have a race on August 4th, and one on August 19th, 20th. And trying to figure out if I'll get an armature in time for either event. (Already placed the order)
