Default Help Needed For T4 Front Axle Conversion.

I was looking at a T4 on some website and it had a T4 with a Losi front axle conversion listed in the specs.I was wanting to do this mod as it has the bearings in the hubs so I won't have to keep popping my bearings out on my wheels when I change tires but I don't know what parts that I will need to do this mod.Thanks.

You would not want to run the Losi buggy axles in the front of a truck as you would shear them off in every wreck. As stated in previous post the front wheels and bearings in Associated and Losi trucks are the same.

The current Losi and Associated truck front wheels are not the same - they have different offsets. You can put an Associated front wheel on a Losi truck with no modifications (it'll look weird, but you can do it), but you would have to remove part of the inner flange on a Losi truck front wheel to fit it on an Associated T4.

Thanks guys,I really like the idea of no bearings in the wheels but it looks that I should forget about this mod.Maybe someday when a T5 comes out it will have bearings in the hubs and more user friendly shocks to rebuild.

I would look at the firestorms front hubs. The firestorm is practicly a t-4 clone & it has then in the hub & not the wheel.
