If you wanna race get the T4
if you wanna bash get the Speed T
the t4 is a FAR better truck for racing, hands down

Nope. The T4 is still a far better truck, especially if it's a factory team truck.

there are speed t parts that dont handle well on offroad terrain. you'd end up spending tons of money turning it into a xxx-t. the motor/esc combo in that isnt all that great either. if you want to race the motor will be useless unless you are running open mod and can handle an unsensored combo.

xD both can race if you mod the Speed T into a XXX
just change shocks and go graphite arms pretty much
and the turnbuckles, you could even change the front shock tower
and have a true XXX-T know several people that have done this
on budget

That will be very hard to do!!!!!! Batteries their self can cost you
easily $80 for two (nimh) and ESC and BL motor combo at the least
will cost you $140-$160 for anything decent.

fishymamba, a what???? 7700kv would be
ridiculous for a 2wd truck that would be something
to use in a 4wd 1/10scale buggy
He said fast but didn't want a drag truck!!
