Questions?? RC10T4 Problems???

I am looking at getting a new truck. I have heard so much bad stuff about the new XXXT that I am going have to jump off the Losi train. I have been running them since 95'.

How is the RC10T4 Factory Team working for you? Any problems with the fit of the parts? How is the new tranny holding up? Hows the performance?




Thanks,

no, no, no. try the xxx-t cr! that is one of the most competitive trucks at my local track. the people that are driving them seem to be winning over the factory team t4's. the truck is pretty solid and light. the car with its different longer wheel base makes turning a breeze and stability something you dont need to worry about.

IMO The T4 really seems to be a solid truck in general. With the correct setup of course they are nimble, jump effortlessly, get crazy pop, and seem to get plenty of power to the gound without any trouble. I have never assembled a factory team T4 so not sure on the parts fit but the trannies on the T4's ive seen and driven are smooth as butter. All this from someone who runs a xxx-t. Nothing against losi, I'm sure there are plenty of people who love their CR's, but the T4 is definately a good truck.

im a losi guy too and the t4 is the truck to run at the track, the cr's seem to have something over the other trucks on the track.
the t4 is a great truck. id personally think about it and see what your lhs has for parts. that can help too.

I can't speak to the factory team version, it's got to be a bit more fragile, but I love my MUCH enhanced RTR version plenty and it's super durable; I never had anything break until some yahoo out of towner plowed into me at full throttle during practice and broke my front right wheel hub assembly.

It's a J82 now, and I'm digging it even more.

i raced a xxxt for 8 years and think they are great. i just got a t4 2 months ago and race it 3 times a week. never broke a thing yet on it. the diff is simple, smooth and the grease doesnt fly out of it like the losi does. the parts fit perfect. the only thing wrong is that you cant tighten the tranny screws too tight. just snug them down and use glue or blue locktight on the threads. not having to worry about e clips is a big plus too.

Thanks for the tip on the tranny. Is that because it will cause binding or the case will crack?

I'm an AE guy (as you can see from my sig) and I love my FT T4. It's easy to build, good quality parts, awesome tranny & diff, and tough as nails. You have to hit something really hard to break anything. I've won all but 2 races with it this year at my home track, but the Losi truck is also a real good one. There are 3 Losi trucks that run with me every race and all are very competitive.

T4 FT is the way to go....I got one for my son when he was 8 and the kid punishes the truck and it keeps coming back for more. He hasnt broken many parts which surprised me. I put a Novak 13.5 in it and it is a great truck.

it causes the case to bind if it is too tight. i havnt had a pomblem just snugging them down and ca glue for thread lock. another thing is that you dont want to grease the servo saver at all. tighten it down like the instructions tell ya but no grease or the front wheels jiggle back and forth in the ruff stuff....another great thing that the t4 has over the xxxt is carries more mid corner speed which is great for sweeper turns.
