Default T3 Factory Team vs. XXX-T Francis Edition

In your opinion what is a better competition level truck? I've had a T3 FT for years and it's been great. Any idea when the T4 is coming out?

Wait until the T4 comes out. I'm sure it won't be long. Just my 2 cents.

Hope the Francis edition comes with some titanium ball studs that connect the turnbuckles to the rear shock tower and some titanium turnbuckles. Other than that you should be good. An amazing truck, fun to drive and fast! Basically the same thing that I wrote in your post about the B4 vs XXX Kinwald. Once again, I don't have the Francis edition but basically the same.

I have the Francis edition and it's a very good truck. It does come with ti turnbuckles but not titanium ball studs. Those wouldn't be a very expensive upgrade though and I've never broken one of the steel ones. I think when the T4 comes out it will just be better. Just my .02.

Could you possibly give me directions from 95 or if you had their tel # or email that would be even better.

Thanks

i had a t3 and a friend let me drive his xxxt and it just felt a little more planted, faster and jumped a little better than my t3, plus i think it has more adjustment points than the t3, but i think that its realy your personal driving style which one you would end up with, my advice would be to see if you could drive both and see which one you like. just my opinion

Just go with what YOU think. I started off thinking of getting a gas, on-road, kit RC, and then I changed my mind to a electric, off-road, RTR RC (XXX-T). And I love it. I just was leaning towards Losi, and it seemed like a great car. Insticts. Go with insticts.
