Default Advice - upgrade my MF1? New T4? or XXXT-CR???

I am a carpet rug rat looking for a little bit of change. I currently have a MF1 that was fine when I raced it a while back. I am debating whether to just upgrade the arms and hubs on my MF1 or get a XXX-T CR or possibly even a T4.

This is what I have heard....

MF1 - good solid truck, just change the arms, and truck will be much better, maybe even throw on the CR chassis to lengthen it....

CR - Jumps better, a lil' more easy to drive, hubs have had problems

T4 - Faster truck, but harder to drive, has more steering than XXX-T

If you were in my boat and already had a MF1, and you still wanted to be competitive - what would you do.

Any help would be much appreciated. Just trying to get as much information as possible.....

Default Trucks

You can update arms if you think using the variable length will be of benefit. The new CR hubs could also be used as they stand the camber ball stud up instead of horizontal. There is a lot of cross talk on here that XXXT CR chassis breaks easily. It may be early runs of EA 3 material is weak in the truck. The extra length makes the CR more stable.

The MF 2 seems better suited to smoother tracks and many converted it back to MF 1 tranny to improve rough track handling.

T4 is fast and has lots of steering. In the hands of a good driver, all can be competitive.
