Wait a couple months and get the kyosho truck. The K shocks are well worth the wait.

Default Choice's Are Slim,Thanks For the Help!

I really see that a lot more racer's chimed in on the T4.Our new layout on our track, was built with electric's in mind and a lot less Marshalling.So durability should not come into play i.e. no large jumps and the surface is hard as concrete and smooth as glass. As far as brushless,which ESC and motor combo works well without being to over powering?I'm using 4500 mah nimh batteries. Grip on our track is ok as long as your blue patch.Novak or Castle which brand do I go with? Thanks For Your Imput it Really is a Great Help!!

Red face KYOSHO!

Probably will have a hard time getting parts right away!

Go with the xxx-tCR or the T4 both are really good trucks and proven to be competitive! go with your flavor!

I have three spheres and they werk awesome. I would suggest a 8.5 to 7.5.....Prolly the 8.5 would be best.

Novak and LRP are good.....Speed passion isn't as good so i am hearing from my buddy's who bought and stopped using them.

I will not comment on the mamba's unless your looking to cut corners on price.

I've had a couple problems making my GTB's smoke. My new LRP sphere is making me happy! It feels smoother to me too.

I'm hearing a lot comments about Novak, LRP, Castle and SpeedPassion, but Tekin is looking like a good ESC. Anybody had any experience with the R1 or RS ESCs???
