I would go the 5.5. 4.5 may be abit to fast for a 2wd stadium truck and will just be spinning out all the time

Cheers

unless your name is Drake or cavialari (sp), both those motors are too fast.
go with the 7.5...

agreed, from what people have been saying on the various boards even the 6.5 can be a handleful in stadium truck. 7.5 may be your best bet. If you must have faster, max I would start with would be a 6.5

I had the 5.5 in my T4, the problem was too much on the bottom end for my driving ability (or lack thereof). Neat on the straightaways but I could get passed by a 27 turn in the tight stuff cause I had to baby it through. Switched to a 2 star Neo and sphere and much better. Im back to a novak now and dont know what IM going to run lol
