in buggy you can definitely tell the difference..in truck it doesn't make much of a difference.

While experiences with the plastic & carbon chasis will differ I find it interesting that if you take a look at all the pro set ups listed on www.rc10.com you won't find a set up where the pro used the carbon chasis.

What stock motor are you running in your T4/B4?

Monster
ROAR
P2K2

I am thinking about going with a P2K2 in my T4 and a Monster in my B4, any thoughts?

I run a monster in my B4.

The P2K is a good motor, but the magnets fall out somewhat easily in off-road applications. So I would stay away from it. The glue just doesn't hold up, and with all the jumps and rough tumbles, they just come loose way to often.

Run a 19-21 tooth pinion in your B4 if using the monster. I personally run a 20 on most days, a 21 tooth when the outside temp is less then 80 degrees. I run the 19 tooth pinion if the temp is extremely hot outside (Above 90-95 degrees). My motor runs to about 170 on a 95 degree day with a 20 tooth pinion.

This past weekend, it bring our last points race, and last race of the year for me, I geared up to 23 for the Main. Motor got up to 250, but no discoloration took place. Heh Last race for this motor, as I'll get new motors in the off season.

For your T4, most people I know run 17-19 pinion gears with the Monster.

Forgot to add... use purple springs on both positive and negative. Use Reedy 767 brushes.

Great insight. I was running 18tooth on my B4 with a regular Trinity Revenge of the Monster and just wasn't seeing the top end speed I wanted. Will move that pinion over to the T4 and see what kind of success I have.

Has anyone tried the T4 MIP Shiny CVD's? Besides the bling does it add anything or are they heavier than the ones in the FT kit?

HeY!!!


Yeah i noticed that to on the website that none of them use it... or else i will run a regular monster (revenge of the monster) in both my T4, and B4.... i run on a small and kinda tight track, i'll run a 19 in B4, and a 15, or 16 on T4... or else i also ran the MIP bling cvd's and they i personally didnt notice anything, but i didnt weigh them to see if one is lighter then the otha.(imo i just think its more of a bling factor) but they are nice.

I have moved onto a new project and that is building the dream stock racing T4. I will race it in the upcoming US Central Electric Point Series on Oct 15th at Speed Racer's Hobby Shop in Richardson, TX. So far here is what I have:

- Factory Team T4 Kit
- Quantum 2 ESC
- Airtronics 94452 Servo
- Spektrum Receiver
- AMB Personal Transponder
- Team Brood Blue Printed P2K2 Motor
- Fusion Power 3700 1.90+ 450+ direct solder batteries
- Downgraded to the Composite/Plastic Chasis
- Yokomo Bleedable Shock Caps
- Lunsford Quick Tune Titanium Shock Mounts
- Battery Strap Thumbscrews
- Trinity Light Weight Slipper Plates
- Lunsford Titanium Screw Kit
- Lunsford Titanium Turnbuckle & Hinge Pin Kit
- RPM Front Bumper
- RPM Gear Cover
- RPM Ball Cups

NOTE: I know the T4 is a great kit and is a top performer out of the box and some of these items will add barely noticeable performance gains, the point is if money were no object what would be the dream stock machine

Avoid the RPM ball cups completely, i dont think they are any stronger. Use either the stock associated, or the losi hd plastic ones.

I've been running RPM ball cups on my T4 ever since I got it, and have never had a problem with them. Plus they look better.

I am not sure of the answer. I got bearings from them for my mini cooper. My mini came with plastic bushings so the bearings are great. All bearings are basically the same. Materials, looks, & type is the difference. They all have the same functions. Rpm or losi hd ball cups are recommended. I have never used the losi ones. I really like the rpm ball cups they are nice & strong.

Will probably stick with the stock as I just found out these options add 7 grams Anyone tried a titanium outdrive like this http://cgi.ebay.com/Titanium-Differe...QQcmdZViewItem or titanium cvd's like this http://cgi.ebay.com/ASSOCIATED-RC10-...QQcmdZViewItem they would save weight but not sure about performance.
