im running #2 with ae 35 now. (had to use a conversion table somone had) i have been running the #2 in the front all summer with 30 wt ae, and the truck drove pretty good. but seeing that most pros are running 35wt with the #3 piston, i almost want to get a pair of #3 pistons and try it like that.

hey guys, in my T4's front shocks the kit says to use the #2 pistons, I was wondering what difference I would notice by using the #3 instead??

#3's are a bit "stiffer", the holes are smaller.

...I think. Never was good at shock tuning.

Even if 2's with 40 'feels' like 3's with 35, it will be different on the track. A different piston will give the stock a different pack. 3's have smaller holes than 2's and will have MORE pack. It will make the front end feel more progressive.

Hope that makes sense

Default On/Off power push on T4

I need some help from you guys... My T4 is experiencing some off & on-power push. I am using a lipo and running the "Factory Team" (A.K.A. Ryan Cavalieri) set-up. I put about 1 oz. of lead up front and 3 oz. in the rear. I noticed the rear is hooking up way better now, but the front still doesn't feel "right" compared to another racer's out of the box T4 RS with NiMH. What else could I do to fix this? I've tried many different front tires and there seems to be no solution.

Its probably a pig cause of all that weight you have in the rear. did you play with the washers under the ball stud on the front bulkhead ?

That setup isnt for a lipo pack with 3 ounces of weight put in the rear too.

I would just put the standard 1.5 oz in the rear, and none in the front. Then put in the LIPO pack with 1 pad in front, 2 in the rear. Also, add lead to match the difference between a LIPO and NiMH on top of the battery bar right above where the battery lies.

Yeah, I ran TC last weekend, but off-road the weekend before at Hot Rod.

Each weekend, I just search out races, or run what I am in the mood for.

Using an 87t spur I went down to like a 20 & up from there but found that I could only get to a 24 or 25 b4 running out of adjustment for endplay between pinion & spur. I had an 81t and wound up with a 26/81 combo that works fantastic at our track. Stock buggy times ( with me at the controls) are a best 24. and change for a lap and I ran a 25 second lap in the T4 tonite. Same motor (GTB 13.5) Hope that helps, for w/e its worth.
