Dirt-Racer: Steering turnbuckles? Which ones do you mean there?

Well errrmm. I think he said something along the lines of he could'nt change the end points and im thinking perhaps he can play around with the steering linkages (turnbuckles) perhaps my terminology is different . And so by doing that the next thing he can do is try to adjust trim?

I did it here! I traded TC stuff for it. It took a while though. But there are a few T4s kicking around on here.

The 87 would be the biggest. That's the T4 gear, and they use the same cover. Besides that's the biggest gear AE offers.

The B4 and the T4 tranny is exactly the same. The only difference is the spur gear. An 87 tooth is stock on a T4. A Losi 90 tooth (orange) spur gear will fit under the B4/T4 tranny cover. I use the 90 tooth with Losi slipper pads from time to time.

Under what circumstances would you use a 90-tooth spur? Just curious.

Gotcha. ...but if he changes the length of the steering links he'll either add too much toe-in, too much toe-out, or too much Pigeon toe!

Pigeon toe, get it? Man, I kill myself sometimes!

Moves one of the heaviest parts of the car back to improve forward traction.

Or you might do it to find the gearing on low turn motors.

At the local track there was a goofy tabletop double/triple right out of a corner. Mods could triple it with ease, but Stock had to double/single it. I wanted a little more oomph out of the corner. It worked. I had a little more acceleration and I was able to clear it lap after lap. The gearing was almost perfect. The motor was only warm after a 7 minute main. I probably could have gone a little higher on the pinion, but there was no need too. My lap times where consistent the whole way thru the run.

And, a 16 tooth pinion combined with Lundsford motor screws=a PITA to set the gear mesh. With a 90/17 I was geared very close to a 16.5/87

They say that with 48 pitch spurs that going up or down three teeth is like adding or subtracting 1/2 a pinion tooth.

This what I just ordered for my T4

Associated Factory Team Green Slime
Ofna Shock Rebuild Stand Yellow
Pro-Line Crowd Pleazer T4 Body
Associated Rebuild Kit New Shocks (4)
Associated A-Arm Front Left & Right T4
Associated Decal Sheet RC10T4
Pactra Polycarb Metallic Green 3 oz
Pactra Polycarb Indy Silver 3 oz
Pro-Line M2 Gladiator 2.2 Truck Tire (2)
Associated Rear Wheel T4 (2)
RPM Wide Front Bumper Blue B4/T4/GT2
Hitec HFX ESC Micro MOSFET
Pro-Line Pro-95 M2 Edge Front 2.2" (2)

Plus tire glue, and a couple of batteries.

At the end of the month, I will order my Futaba 3PM and Digital servo.

Came with a Monster Horsepower Stock. I think that I need to rebrush it at the least. I have a spare New Monster Horsepower Armature that I might put in as well.

I has used a used 8T esc in there, and I don't think that it was set up right, even after I printed the PDF file from the site and tried to go through and fix it. Ran OK last night, and quit working tonight.

I put in a brand new, but low end Duratrax ESC that I had lying around. Set it up, ran the T4. It was very fast and would wheelie. Problem was it would just up and quit. Wait a while and it would run briefly again. I don't know if it is the thermal protection on the speed control, or hanging up brushes or what. The motor didn't seem that hot.

Look forward to using the HFX. I have had great luck with them before, and feel like they are one of the bulletproof escs out there and for the price, I don't think that it can be beat. Will handle down to a 10 turn if I remember correctly.

Gave it a good blast with motor cleaning. It is getting dark here, will run it again tomorrow.
