Take the car off the track and touch the motor

If it's cool, add teeth to the pinion

If you burn yourself, take teeth off the pinion

If it's warm, you're good

Best way to do anything is to just try it, IMO.

All these rules and gearing are not set in stone. They arre all suggestions. They are just starting points. Every motor runs different. That's why they call this a hobby. If it was always perfect then it would be no fun.

I just picked up a b4 off of eBay and Im running 19/81 on a tight indoor track with a co27 and it seems to be a perfect balance.

the gearing sounds about right. Also try a 20 pinion. See if that is any better.

he said "probably buried in this thread somewhere" which using search will clean it up to only those posts related to the 7700, and he wouldn't have to look through all 80+ pages.

Maybe I'm an idiot also. I've tried to find certain posts several times and have had no luck. Whatever key words I enter turn up nothing.

Is there any parts that swap between the GT2 and the T4? When I wrecked my GT2 last weekend it seemed like the T4 parts were different enough to not work right. I kind of thought some parts between the two were interchangeable. It really looks like none are the same.

The T4 a-arms will work, but you'll need to switch the A-arms, caster blocks, and the trailing steering arm,hinge pins and trailing axles.

Ryan Maifield uses the GT2 front end on his T4. The parts he uses are, the GT2 a-arms, caster blocks, hinge pins, steering arm and trailing axles.

Servo horn kit is AE part #9180
Ballstud is AE part #3858 I believe you want a short stud there and with the stud threaded so the ball points towards the back of the car

You might also need a #7336 Servo Mount & Spacer kit if the previous owner didn't include those either

There actually is a front mount, atop the right side of servo saver...but most people just like to use velcro to mount the body anyways.

Also, what servo are you going to be using? If it's a JR590M, the JR servo horn included in the AE servo horn tree isn't going to work.

i could use another 590, but i'm kinda gettin talked into a hobbico digital. lil easier on the wallet and i should go digital. just had put it off w/the other car.

the servo mounts are there, just noticed this spacer issue however. idk what setup hobbico servos are (hitec?). just cant drop for an AR digital for time being.

thank u all for the info.

Why won't the horn work? Just curious.

To add to this question--I've been caught not being able to mount up servos several times cause I don't have the correct screw or washer under the screw. So, I have been trying to decide what is needed to mount up all brands. JR, Air, Ace, Futaba, Hitec, KO, Sanwa, Bluebird...uh..can't think of any others. My point--the horn mounting screws are different for some output shafts. Metric or standard/course thread or fine thread. Little things. It's just little things. I get P.O.'d about this issue too much cause I can't seem to get it figured out. Oh and cap head or flat head. Some use awesome aluminum washers under the flat heads. I like that. But mostly I just want to get the frikkin servo horn mounted to the frikkin servo so I can drive my frikkin cars. (Austin Powers montage) lol

1st go round. no time for setup on it, just throw in my electrics and go on what the previous owner had. i can say even under those conditions i was very comfortable w/the car and fact that it turns. somethin the CR couldnt do consistantly at all with the ever changing conditions to both car, surface, and track preparation.

i do need to do a complete teardown and freshen up the car to my liking. but agian, i'm very pleased. has me thinkin of settin it up for dirt oval for winter. heh
