Has anyone tried the in-line axles for the T4 yet? I'm still looking for a little more steering from my truck.

Default Inline Axles

I ran them on my T4 for the main. Should have run them in the heats too. If you are racing on a tight track they will help, but you should also use the 30 deg. caster blocks. That will make it less twitchy.

Truck racing is a LOT of fun!
I had my first truck race on Friday night at SoCal, although I raced with a T3 rather than a T4, it made me want to get a truck more than ever!
I should have run in Sportsman Stock Truck, but I did not know how fast the Truck would be in the race. The truck did 9 laps in four minutes, and avarage mph would have possibaly placed me in the top three of Sportsman Stock Truck.

T4, is coming!!!

If you order one, make sure to pick up the parts ( hop ups ) you want on it right away. I mainly buy things to toughen the vehicle even though I drive pretty well.

I may have to look into those axles and caster blocks and give them a shot. I will have my LHS put an order in for me. I hope they got my parts in. I left for MS on Thanksgiving and parts were still not in after about 1 week wait. But I know that with the demand for the T4 going high, he should get more requests.

Had my third race the truck. We ran a pro class ( 19T motors, 3300 packs ). Wow, fast! Only a couple of other racers though but we wanted to put on alittle show. It was a T4 (mine ), a XXXT MFE, and a B4. THe B4 was driven by one of our top drivers in touring class, so it was a battle. I managed to win the first heat and the second heat as well. The XXXT wasn't really too much of a factor ( the guy drives really well though ), just a battle with the B4.

When it was all said and done though, the B4 can away in the mains. I kit a post and popped my battery connnectors, but for when I was in there, we were very close, considering the weight of the truck versus the buggy, it was a good match up. Of course the buggy would win, but I wasn't spanked, VERY IMPRESSED.

hmm, not sure. All I know is that I am not big on trinity motors out of the box. Seem to take alot of buying before you get a good one. I liked the motors that promatch produced, great power.

Quick question on your RTR, does your radio have the ability to adjust how much steering is dialed in?

So far after buying a lot of crap from trinity, I am linking my Peak Performance Dynasty motor ( I run in a 19t class ). Great power, unlike my Chameleons.

Some guys by me tested the Epic motors and didn't like them.

So far though I hear that reedy motors are good, so whatever they are using for stock motors would be a good starting point. Also, if you want try picking up a stock motor from the company that pro-match sold there motor division to. There 19T motor was a BEAST out of the box, so this one should be no different.

i have tried the reedy quad magnet 19T, both with a machine wound armature and hand wound armature... it has great torque, you definitely have to gear up to take advantage of its power. ( but you have to change the brushes to maximize its performance.)

i agree... ran my T4 and first time out was race day and right out of the box, it handles really well.

What should i do if i want more forward traction? my T4 was a bit loose on-power ( back tends to slide sideways )

On the T4 it's hard to beat a P2K2 based motor.The Monster stock is more of an RPM motor.
