I would also recommend, as a friendly gesture, investing in one of those SS screw kits for the T4. Mine was made by RC Screwz and has played a tremendous role keeping the truck together.

Have fun for they are a blast!!!
You do realise that ss is softer than the kit screws. The kit hardened steel screws should be kept in high stress areas for the most durability.

agreed

my used JRXS-TypeR came with that stainless steel screw set and they are softer and also I found out all that button head screwz hex is too big (button head is fine), my 0.063 tool keep stripping those and I had to repace all of them back to stock screws.

bone stock WTG~

Maybe the SS kits are not hardened but have never broken any of those--unlike the kit screws. Harder is not always better when shear is involved in the equation .

Hard to buy the kit screws too, right? Have never seen them . . .

Hey Folks...

I'm looking to build a new FT T4 Kit and am looking to upgrade some things as I go.

What all can I do to the transmission assembly besides Ceramic Diff Balls and bearing to maximize efficiency.

I've already got lightweight outdrives as well..

I've heard talk about Trinity Lightweight Clutch Plates but can't find them anywhere... Anybody got a source or part number?

Thanx!

If you're building a new FT T4 I assume you're going to put BL and possibly LiPo power into it. The truth is you don't need lightened outdrives, clutch plates, etc. 'cause we all have too much power anyway. Unless you're racing Stock where you're trying to reduce every gram of rotating weight yeah okay, but for Mod I don't worry about it. The best thing you can do to a T4 is make sure your wheel bearings and hub carrier bearings are clean and well maintained. I clean the grease out of mine and run bearing oil. More maintenance but smoother rolling. The only thing I do to the diff is sand the rings with 600 grit sandpaper. Removes the flat spots and adds a little texture to the rings. Make sure there's no binding in the suspension, ream the parts a little if you have to. Add 1 1/2 oz of weight to the rear when you build it and you're good to go.

Yeah Ceramic bearings aren't really necessary. I put them in my car, and honestly, it didn't make a difference. I still have to service the diff the same amount.

Really add the weights as shown elsewhere in this thread. The kit bearings aren't the best for the rear hubs. perhaps upgrade to the B44 rear hubs, or the Quick Hub Change (Not sure that uses a different size bearing though).

Check your arms to make sure that the hinge pins rotate freely. I always have to reem out mine as they tend to bind.
