Broke an A arm today on mhy T4 and I remember reading i believe that RPM GT2 A arms fit the T4, am I correct? This is the part that I was planning to order. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXRFW1&P=7

Will this work?

the conversion works w the front arms only.
you need #7927 outer hinge pins gt2.
with these arms you no longer use the front hinge pin brace....
so if you were thinking of upgrading to the aluminum one you dont need it....actually you cant use it...

I will answer my own question after I did some reasearch on RC10T4...the front arm work if you buy the set that includes the bulkhead, then you also need the front hinge-pins which only come as a front/backk set as far as I know. RPM has lifetime garauntee on thier parts..yea. This should do the trick.

I converted my t4 front end to a gt2 front end. I think it turns better and have not broke a single arm since the switch. I've also gone to 30 degree caster blocks and it turns on a dime. I used the gt2 arms, hinge pins, caster blocks and steering blocks...Carolinas RC had everything i needed.

If you are trying to get a final drive of 8.5 on a T4 and you are running a stock 87 tooth spur what pinion would you run?

Thanks

26 or 27

(87 / P) x 2.6 = 8.5, P - pinion
