Default T4 trailing steering block upgrade??

Ok so i went into my local hobby shop about a week and a helf ago,And was discussing racing and what not and i brought my t4 in to juts check everything out on it.Well he told me to upgrade the trailing blocks in front to ones off a traxxas stampede truck due to the stampede ones are twice as big is this possible??I was wondering is that even smart to do for racing and has anyone ever tried this swap out???Also what size tire would i need to run then??

Ok i was just wondering cause he said they would hold up better.And i wouldnt have to use the plastic nut on it.Said the plastic nut strips out and ill constantly lose them.I just now saw that i am missing a bearing in the front wheel and the tire has satyed on the whole time,not sure where that one went.

It might work but I never break them nor do I hear of anyone breaking them. Some people don't like plastic nuts on principle but I never have lost them or stripped them out. You will bind the bearing on the wheel before you strip the nut.

Well my front end itself is very strong i got full carbon,and my rpm wide bumper saves the front end most the time so.I was just told to upgrade,But im not gonna worry about it.I do gotta figure out where one of ther front wheel bearings went when i havent even taken the tire off is the front for awhile.

What do you need to modify to make the 7932 GT2 Rear Hub Carrier(1.5) fit on a T4? Just add the correct bearings or is there something else that needs to be done?

Thanks for any further information

I believe the Gt2 rear hub carrier bolts straight on the t4 and b4 but it will give you a total of 4.5 degrees toe-in per side!! Have any of you guys who have tried them liked them? That is alot of toe in!!

Yes it's a bolt on change BUT you will also need 2 of these 7935 3/16 x 1/2 Outer Bearings for the GT2 rear hubs.

I had them on my T4 when I was racing it with a Novak 4.5 in it!!!!

Yes OFF ROAD!!!

ALL the tracks are "VERY Low Traction" with a 4.5!!!

Worse when I had a 3.5 in it!!!
