New question. what LxWxH servos will fit in the T4? I have a Hitec 625-MG which is listed at 1.48" high. It is up against the front of the battery tray. I don't believe a taller servo will fit. Any comments or suggestions for getting a more powerfull servo to fit?

Here are the specs for the HS-625MG as compared to the HS-5645MG. It is slightly slower than the 625 but much more powerful. Being that it is digital it will center better. Same size, same weight.

0.15sec/60 at 6.0V
Torque: 5.5 kg-cm (76.37 oz-in) at 4.8V
6.8 kg-cm (94.43 oz-in) at 6.0V
Length: 40.6mm (1.59")
Width: 19.8mm (0.77")
Height: 37.8mm (1.48")
Weight: 60g (2.11oz)

HS-5645MG
Specs
SPECS: Speed: 0.23 sec/60 at 4.8V

Speedsterblade, thanks for all the input.

I had always figured a lighter buggy amounted to more speed. But, perhaps there is such a thing as too light. I guess that's why some are adding weight. Well, I'll experiment a little on my own.

Who makes the Alu. motor guard?

isnt so much as "lack of weight" as it is where the weight isnt or lack of balence.

trying to figure this out, for some reason the rear of my t4 feels "soft" but there is quite a bit of tension on the springs in the rear....i have trinity 30 wt w/ green spring rear, trinity 35wt w/ silver spring front.

Sounds like you have the old style threaded shock bodies. The new bodies are threaded further down. My truck is the same way.

WOW!! Finally somebody who runs what I run!! lol
Everybody thinks I'm crazy but I like soft setups.


For the guys with the shock bodies not threaded far enough down.. you may have the original gt threaded bodies. They are not threaded near as far down as T4 ones. I believe the shock body itself may be just a hair shorter as well.

Where does one get a set of all the different springs. I have a T3 set, of all the spring, but they are shorter. Does anyone the part number?

Ideally, you should ligthen all you can AND try to get the weight balanced and/or distributed where you want it. If you have lighten it some then you can move weight around where you want, without adding more weight than you originally started with. I try to get as much on the rear as possible for foward traction. but adding a bit to the front is prolly needed depending on how much steering you need or if it's not jumping right. You can also just buy some aluminium bulkhead or front suspension parts to get strength and weight on the front. ..i'm just using lead tire weights.
