98 T3, I suggest that you search Ebay and buy a XXXT MFE, it's a kick @$$ truck and it's much more balanced and handles much better than my T3... Just a Suggestion

I own a T3 as well as a XXX-t mfe, Like LosiFromHell, we race together and have done much thinking on the differences between the two. 98 T3, the T3 is an awsome truck on and off the track, but with newr versions comeing out from both companie if you are in a sertain budjet range for racing I would suggest trying out the XXX-T mfe, its a great Truck like LosiFromHell said, but they are two totally different trucks. If you whant durability go with the T3 if you wahnt speed and a just plane awsome running truck, go with the XXX-T

yah even though i am a losi hater i would have to agree. the T3 is by far a better bashing truck but yes the MFE does have a few thngs that make it a better bashing truck. you can modify your T3 to be better than the MFE or the T4, but you can do ths with almost any truck. you can even do it to a traxxas rustler,! like this guy did. you can widen and lenthing the T3 so it is the same or better than a T4. the main reason that the T3 is not a wide or long is because it was built before ROAR changed the rules!

This is just me talking here, but i was was wondering what do you mean by streatching the body? You mean increase the wheel base? If so (from what i hear, the T4 is longer than the T3), wouldn't it make it less responsive in the corners (maybe not to much...these are R/C cars and you can get servo's that respond quicker).

I'm just kinda scratching my head on that one, i used to race real cars, and the shorter the wheel base, the harder and faster you could go through the corners (also providing your setup can handle it as well). I know the wider body would be better though, it'll distribute the weight out better and get a little better traction. But thats just me, i'm still kinda new to the 1:10th scale here, i'm used to the 1:1...no offence.

honestly a T3 can kick a T4 in stock because it is not as wide and long. it turns sharper and tighter and cause stock motors are slow [honestly compared to mods] the T4's ablity to have higher corn speeds doesn't really matter! mod on the other hand the T3 can fp pretty easy in fast corners and you have to sow down more.
