I just bought a T4 RTR and was wondering what you guys would recommend for replacement shocks? I would get the FT ones but I dont want to spend that much.

We usually run 78/32 on most tracks. If its a small clay track I might drop it to 78/31 to get a little more punch.

Just really depends on your motor.

There is no need to replace the stock shocks IMO. Grab a piston set, rebuild kit and green slime and keep them running smoothly.

Check this out.

For the off road shocks, you just use the eyelets, retainers and bladders. On the T4 shocks I also use 2 red O rings as external limiters to prevent the piston from hitting the bladders.

Some of the AE guys at the track might suggest the same place you could put the losi avatar. But that's another story. Just kidding. If money is an issue IMO you could run the stock shocks for a while and then upgrade to the bladders when you need to rebuild them.

1/4 oz on both sides of chassis in the rear compartment. 1 oz b/w the tranny and rear bulkhead. The AE weights fit best b/c they're square. If you use rectangular weights you'll have to squeeze them some to fit behind tranny. Would show you a pic, but that computer is down right now.

Has anyone purchased and used the Associated Complete Tuning Guide (#7468) for the T4?

If yes do you recommend it?

I searched this thread and didn't see anything. Thanks for any info.

I have it, and it is a great aid for use at the track. Although I wish for it being called a tuning guide and the fact that you have to pay for it, that there should be more info then what the give you.


Also this is another great tuning guide and is great on covering the theroy of what changes do to the car.

http://users.telenet.be/elvo/ Also be sure to check out the set-up guide as that is a great for use at the track as well.


This link is also a good read, and is shorter to get though then the other one. It might also be a good idea to read this info first then read the other one so you have a better understanding before jumping head over heels in the other one.

Default B4 upgrades

What would be the most important upgrades to a B4. It is not a FT and is a roller with just the stock servo. I am not too worried about electronics until later, but instead which parts would be good to upgrade right away?

I just got the e-book - a good read. Goes into a little more detail than the back of the manual about the various settings.
