All you need to go fast is the plastic parts....
Get the FT T-4 & add the plastic chassis ...

General rule is 9 over the wind so in your case a 19 tooth. Go up or down one for track size and/or layout....

I should've been more specific. I need CVDs for the T4.






On another note, could anyone tell me what the general rule of thumb is for gearing stock and modified on a T4? Specifically a Monster Stock with 22,280 RPM, 66W, and 102.4 torque @5V...

Also a 15x5 mod motor that I haven't dynoed...

Thanks,
Erik

Default B4

Hi guys, i got my B4 last week, my first buggy
few questions,
- what is the suitable servo for EP buggy? digital? how about sanwa VB servo, will it be an overkill?

- unlike touring cars, when you build the shock the shock shouldn't return to full length after we compressed it (as said in the manual). Does this mean there will be air bubbles inside the shock?

thanks!

as far as a servo, you won't really need much torque, but you will need some speed for a quick response. look for a fast servo and metal gears aren't a necessity, but the are a little more durable. but they weigh more...

this is what I used for a while:

now i use this, but only because I snapped a servo arm and didn't have a JR spare...

as far as the shocks, yes they should have a little air in them and rebound from 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch...

Congrats on the B4 (good choice).You can't go wrong with the HS-925, hitec makes great servos, I run a bunch of Associated cars. In my T4 I am running the HS-625, and I haven't had any trouble with it, it has a quick response and plently of torque.

Well, I was thinking of expanding my collection and picking up a B4. I was think of getting the RTR to save some cash on the electronics. Since I haven't owned a really buggy since 93 (RC10 Championship Ed), and already have a T4 Team Truck(new factory team status), I was thinking the RTR would be bad, I can always upgrade to FT specs and swap out the electrics. So I guess my question is should get the RTR or just go ahead and get the FT B4 kit.

Hi, although i'm new to buggy but i want to share my opinion. if you are likely to upgrade your car to FT, i would suggest getting a FT B4 straight away, you'll save more cash in the long term for that. I bought FT TC3 last time and did not spend any additional cash for hop ups, except some replacements where necessary due to tear and wear. i bought TA05 recently and spent almost the same price as the kit for the hop ups. that's why i go for the FT B4 straight away

my 2 cents...

Well, as a gift my girlfriend just picked me up a RC10B4 Factory Team Kit, I already have a Futaba 3PM radio with a XXL reciever, she also picked me up a Epic Pro Stock Motor, LRP IPC V7.1. So looks like somebody want something from me. Actually she got it all off of ebay new for 150 bucks and she said she couldn't pass it up. Since I did buy her a T-Maxx last year. Nothing cooler then a chick who is into R/C. She also has a Mini-T, becasue I have the 18T.

The Yokomo shock caps add a bleed screw to help balance the shocks.
Do they allow the use of a bladder?

The Yok. caps are the same as the stock caps besides the bleeder screws, so no you cant use a bladder with them. If you did use a bladder with them the bleeder screws would be redundant. I think mabye the new shock cap kit for the TC4 allows the use of a bladder, or some kind of new bleeding system. Perhaps you should look into those?

New to off road and want to get this thing together flawless. Has anyone put bearings in the steering race? If so Where did you get them and what size are they. Thanks
