Chassis, both towers, cvd bones, 6 turnbuckles, 81t spur, battery strap, and all 4 arms.

chassis on the t4 is longer than the b4. b4 body wont fit well, battery strap would have to be of the t4 variety.

otherwise, guy above me has it pretty well laid out.

*edit* I am going back into my hole now. I repeated what he said.

this has been discussed before....its more expensive to buy all the new parts to convert the t4 to the b4, or vice versa, its more cost-effective, to buy another b4 roller off of here for around $100, and swap your electronics out, and hold onto your t4 for when you get more money and make them both ready to race

AE > Kyosho (atleast until they get their 2wd truck out) > Losi

Default T4 or B4

Just get a B4FT and swap the electronics and make sure you keep the T4

it can be converted to a B4. But it will be $$$. Your best bet is just to find a good used one instead.
