Default 1/10th Electric trucks

I've been running the Slash class at my local track, and I've been thinking about getting an electric truck. I've looked at the Losi XXX-T, and the Associated T4, but was wondering if there was anything else, and if one seems to be better than the other. Losi or Associated parts are available at the track. I've been running paved oval for the past 5 years, and thats been put on the backburner since I started with the Slash. The class is pretty much open, other than a track lipo. The track has a low bite surface.

Any suggestions?

You can't go wrong with either one... the XXX-T & T4 are both top of the line. There really isn't any other top race grade of truck out there.

Personally, I like Losi... but that's just my opinion.

I used to run a T4 and now i am waiting for the Kyosho to come out. The xxx-t cr would be my choice if i needed a truck today.

XTM GV 2-T

These aren't TOP race level trucks, just options IF your LHS has parts.

Yeah the firestorm wouldn't be a bad choice if you plan to bash/race. If all you want is a race truck then get the T4.

This would be strictly racing, no bashing. Thanks for the input! Keep it coming!

Raced a T4 Team Kit (with carbon upgrade kit) for 3 years, moved to a T4 Factory Team (T4 TK was stolen).

Wouldn't think that there would be that BIG a diff between a TK and FT!

FT jumps higher/longer, turns sharper/quicker and drives straighter!

Has to be the FT cause I'm the same driver!!!!

Losi's only know them as the follow me

EXCEPT for the ones I follow!!!

I have a T4, and I have drove Losi's in the past.

For me I think the Losi better fits my driving style, but sometimes they just don't have enough steering. The T4 has the steering, but is a little free in the rear which can make it somewhat hard to hang onto some days. Really if the Kyosho RT5 handles like the buggy (it should) then that would be just what I am looking for out of the car.

So for me I will stick with my T4, and later I will get the RT5 as it should better fit my driving style (I tend to be very hard on throttle).
