Same result as the truck. Weight difference is negligible.

And the plastic chassis won't short out your batts like a graphite one will.

Hey. so then you guys would buy the ftt4 over the team truck? I want to build my first kit and prefer plastic over graphite but if all thats needed on the ft is a different chassis then i guess the extra hop-ups in the ft kit makes it worth while. Thanks for the thread. Dan.

Yes, buy the FT kit and the plastic chassis and forget the rest!

I like it, but what body is it. I realized that it was not a Crowdpleazer by the grill.

What gears are you running in your Stock B4's? I'm running a 21t pinion and 81t spur. But, my accelleration still seems a bit slow. Perhaps I need to tighten my clutch more.

whats a good gear ratio to start with using a Novak 13.5 original motor?
Would 87/19 be okay?
