The combination of the longer chassis on teh CR and the original trans makes it a much better truck than the Mf2 ever was in stock form. MF2 does have alot of graphite parts and VLA so you can add the CR long chassis and original or CR rear end and have a nice ride.

I've never owned either truck...

...But I have been asking my friend about it since he's had both and raced them a lot. He told me that both the B4 and T4 have more overall steering than the Losi cars and kill it on clay tracks. If you're on clay run Associated. If you're anywhere else, run either.

Of course this is a very general opinion, but I'm leaning to the Losi since I like their shocks better. Still torn on which one to get though. For now I'll just beat my Slash into submission!

the only way a would agree with is if you are talking about the mf2 truck not the cr truck...the cr gave the car plenty of steering..all i run on basically is clay type tracks and others that run the cr truck that i know also never have a problem getting steering.

My 2 Cents...

Different trucks fit different drivers....

I suggest you head to the local track and see if you can drive some other peoples trucks and see what fits you.

My general opinion is that the T4 will have generally better steering than the Losi trucks... but the Losi trucks seem to be more forgiving in the rough areas.

It all comes down to what works for the particular driver. My signature shows what I race though....

Now that I think about it, he probably doesn't have a CR... I think he has 4 MF2 trucks!

I have never had a stealth transmission fail, even on 11.1v with the mamba max 7700kv system

The losi CR's EA3 Comp. is way more flexible and rides smooth on rough tracks as well as clay.
IMO B4's and T4's are twitchy and the losi feels more planted.

It was really popular before the cr came out. Dont ask me why, becasue I got it when it was discontinued. What alot of people do though for the cr is put graphite arms and towers.
