May have to look into having an 8000mah lipo around for those special events.

Heck, I would like to see a truggy style wing on these in some way!
Why does everyone talk like this is a issue, my ft t4 runs for 25mins no problem with a lipo in it. Also truck tires last a heck of a lot longer then buggy tires.

E-Firestorm
And you have the T4 of course and the XXXT-CR

The Speed-T can be raced with a few mods.

I guess I just prefer the E-Firestorm due to the tranny having all metal gears and stuff.

Have seen 10.5 motored trucks go 30 minutes plus with a 4800 Orion Li-po.

My 13.5 stock truck can go over 30 minutes with a 4000 mah li-po.

No, the E-firestorm has a diff just like an 1/8th scale buggy. It really is the perfect dif to run a mod truck. It holds oil like a champ too.
