We've got a carpet track here where we race stadium trucks and I've got to say I really like the way the T4!!! drives on carpet compared to the MF2!!!. Especially if you throw some inline axles on the front of the T4!!!, it will outsteer the MF2!!! any day, then you just dial the back in and its awsome. The T4!!! feels alot more precise and has alot less body roll than the MF2!!!. Plus the chassis if more rigid, which is always good for carpet.

Well thats just how I feel, of course I suppose the Losi could be set up to work great as well. I know that the T4 was way more dialed right out of the box, literally running the box stock setup (lowered though of course) it actually handled really good, lol! We do have a few jumps on our track though to, so you do need a softer setup than if the track as totally flat. I modded my rear bulkhead to lower the inner ballstud to provide a more aggressive roll center, and it worked awsome. Adding about 1cm of internal travel limiters helps to, plus red springs all around and 70wt oils works good. It makes the truck alot more stable through the corners. I found the sway bars to not really do to much since they are so thin.
