here is a good starting point that I think alot of people run.

the only thing different that I run is silver Springs in Front and Two washers on the rear bulkhead. every track is different but it will get you really close.

Thanks for the quick reply. I had a 6.5L the past 3 races but you just can't lay that power down on this track.

Sup,

I would like to know what would be a good starting point for a brushless 17.5 T4. I'm bout to order from Amain, so I would like to see where to start. The track I'll be runnin at is an indoor hard packed track w/ a 80 ft or so straight. If anybody knows the track, it's SMAC track in St. Louis. If this helps as well the tire of choice is usually Double Ds or holeshots.

thanks

Cant speak for all motors, but I ran a 17.5 LRP Vector in a T4 at smac and B&L and I liked 28/84, or 26/78 they both come out to the same ratio, depend on what gears you have, I also ran a 17.5 speed passion motor and it like alot more gearing 31/78! but 28/84 for most is a good start I think, but Im also a nitro racer most of the time

On my B4, I'm geared all the way up to 35/68 with a slipper eliminator. My motor temps only get to 98* after a 5 minute run and 102* after 7 minutes. The problem is trying to find another smaller spur that's still the right pitch.

speedtech sells down to a 66t 48p spur gear. Will work with the turbo hub for sure.

This is correct. Take the spacers out and measure them they are 3.20mm when new and knock them down to 2.90mm. Not as much presuure/squeezing of the O-Rings. Shocks work Better and seals last longer. Use very flat surface and TAKE YOR TIME. It's worth it.

The reason the seals pop out is because of a
mistake made in production .
They were suppose dip the shock in the coating then and then let it dry by standing the shock on its top .
Instead they stood the body upright, bottom down when drying the coating ...

The excess coating pooled inside where the seals go ...

That's a good setup...but not really lipo specific. That setup has a 16 oz Orion NIMH pack in it... It's still a good baseline setup though.

Has anyone experimented with a no ballast lipo setup with the T4 like what Cherry posted for the B4?

some of us are running weight under the battery within the tray. We weight the battery and add the difference.With the above mentioned setup this does very well.

Just to add a little, you can do that and it is the safe way of doing things. Or if you are like me, I just add the weight (1.5oz) to the rear and go race. The biggest thing is that it is more of a feel thing, but normaly if you add weight it will be a little easier to drive the car.
