Ok guys I'm still on the fence on whether to get the tekin 4000 or the 4600. I want the 4600 because I want the power but I need to know from you guys whether the motor can be run on a small indoor track and a medium large outdoor.

What gearing would you recommend? Basically what i need to hear in order to make the decision is whether the 4600 heat can be tamed...

Thanks,
Dan

Hey, has anyone run the Pro-line sniper M4 (super soft) compound with these trucks?

I race on a fairly loose dirt track. Big track though. I was in a bit of a bind, I couldn't get the usual M3 (soft) compounds i normally run.

Any advantages and disadvantages to this compound?

Thanks.

Itís probably been mentioned here but what is the advantage of using this brace instead of the stock?

I just got one a few weeks ago, geared at 14 and it's the most fun I've had in a long time. Plenty of speed and punch and the temps are very manageable!

Very strong motor, I just recently switched to the new Revtech 3800kv, 16t pinion. tekin rx8. HOLY CRAP, totaly out performs the tekin 4600, I was very shocked.

Just a thought

It gives you another tuning option. It is not a situation where it is always better or not. If you are in a high grip situation the chassis may start to flex to much due to traction. This will make the car a little twitchy on turn in. If this happens in high traction conditions then put the long brace on and it will dial out some of that and calm the car down.

Judging by Amain yes that is a mod1, why not just test fit it on the truck?
