One thing I would like to point out is that all the pro's downgrade the graphite chassis of the T4 and use the Plastic chassis. This is because the graphite doesn't flex which not only makes it hard to drive but the graphite can actually short out batteries as well.

Battery insulator strip isn't going to make the chassis flex any better. A chassis with no flex is not what you want in OffRoad.

Since we were talking about the RC10T4 I thought it was obvious we were talking about 1/10
