I found BuiltRC Just put up 8 of the 4000kv on Ebay. Snagged 1 up. Can't beat BuiltRC's shipping. Super Fast.

The minispikes are pretty much the standard tire to use on the carpet by anyone that runs near the front.
Imho it's the Schumacher Mini Pins that reign supreme on carpet, not the mini spikes.

So anyone run both the HW 4000kv and 4700kv, would it be worth it for me to switch to the 4000kv for more bottom end or isn't the difference that big ?

No, they are worthless. Taxxas ends are far better.

Jerry, I know you asked me last night about this. I looked it up, and Im almost positive I used TRA5347

Those Traxxas rod ends will not work with the existing screws. The holes in the pivot balls are too small.

I have heard that as well. There is a guy that runs minipins on his sc104x4 and does really well and I've also seen them on the back of 2wd shortcourse trucks and buggies, but the the spike is used almost universally on the well worn carpet I race on in 4wd sc even though the hobby shop is well stocked on both the spike and pin versions. Not sure the reason, but it does make me want to give the mini pin a try and see if it will provide more grip.

I replaced all my rod ends and installed HA balls two weeks ago. They are slightly better, but most of the slop on my truck is in the front hub/steering knuckle area where they rotate on the kingpins and in the center drag link assembly. I've replaced the hubs and knuckles, installed titanium kingpins and the hard anodized servo saver and still have considerably more slop than my brother in laws sc10 4x4.

I find this very odd that you say these are worthless. We use the HA 7075 aluminum balls on all of our TLR vehicles with a great degree of positive feedback. That is why we released them for the SCTE.

No doubt about that. I've driven and wrenched on his truck more than he has and there isn't much comparisen. I regret not putting more effort into talking him out of getting it in the first place.

Wish I could give you an accurate comparison but I've only used the 4700 as well. There are those here that swear by the 4000 that I imagine have used both and will hopefully chime in. I'd say if your funds allow it you might have to pick up a 4000kv yourself to compare and then unload one of them on someone at your track. They are both excellent motors.
