What's a good gearing, that I can gear this 13.5 up to, that will give me a similar speed as my 10.5?
Well, right now Im running a 13.5 in my B4. Also 2c lipo, I am geared @76 (losi spur) 32 pinion. I was running @76/33 and I was right on the edge heat wise. Works well for me @ small med/hi bite track. Right around 6.00 final drive is pretty good IMO. Try it out a few laps, check heat to make sure your ballpark, and go to it man.. I'va had a lot of good drivers wheel my car and they love the power. If you have questions about gear ratio check this out- http://www.gearchart.com/index.cfm?f...n=chart.create
a very helpful tool..

28/81 is a 7.5 FDR.
That is what I run in my B4 with a 13.5 and temps are good and power is awesome. You won't burn anything up with that gearing.

Default new to off road

Hi guys, I just picked up my first off road vehicle; Its a FT T4 with a j82 conversion, speed pasion bruchless esc, novak 4300 motor. I am a TC guy by nature so this whole off road thing is new to me, if you dont mind answering a couple of questiions for me i would really appriciate it.

question 1 does any company make a conversion to allow me to use the hex mount wheels on this truck? if so who.

question 2 will i be able to use any buggy body designed to fit the B4 or do i have to stick with the J concepts brand

thankx in advance

Default Even better

Instead of hex`s use the Ae Gt-2 quick release hub....

you can use any T-4 body made , no other buggy bodies available except JConcept...

Does anyone have a T4 Lipo setup they want to share? My truck is excessively loos and I'm trying to cure that problem. Thanks.

i geuss why i am asking about the hubs is because i have a brand new set of jaco foam tires made to fit the rustler, jato, slash exct.. but they use the hex head style mount like tc foams. i thought it would be cool to try them on the t4. we race on carpet indoor and asphault out door but if there is no way then ill just sell them because there still in the packege. thankx for the info though

formerpro4, the hexes for the ruslter/slash should fit on a t4 but not sure if the stub axle is long enough. I know i can put ae wheels on my slash!

What setup do you have on there now?

Might be easyier to tune what you have instead of putting a whole new setup. Is it loose going into the turn or coming out? Moving your battery around will do alot for the handling. If its loose going in then move your pack forward. If its loose coming out of the turn, move your pack back.

I also had a lot of problems with an uncontrollable T4.
I now added 125 gram of lead under the LiPo, and it made a huge difference.
Also check the AE forums to find some LiPo T4 setups :aeforums.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=1433



good luck and greeting from the Netherlands
