Yeah dude you don't want to go with a Slosi, that MF2 drives like a Buick Lesabre. The T4 is like a ferrari compared to it, lol!

What are you guys running in the rear camber link area on track with huge jumps and a really hard surface? I was at a big race last weekend and it was pretty much a 1/8th track so it was really hard on the 'ol 1/10ths. I broke a few rear ball studs, and trashed a few rear bulkheads. My buddy broke ballstuds, bulkheads, turnbuckles, and rod ends! I was thinking of picking up some RPM/lunsford super duty stuff, and some really good bearings. The regular AE rubber sealed bearings just break constantly, what are some good ones? The AE teflon seals? Boca?

do you run the FT or the team truck? the ive only had to replace the rear hub bearings in my FT but thats because they disintegrated if your running the Team truck check out Avid. a buck a bearing which is much cheaper than AE bearings

Ran the T4 for the first time today and i t was better than i thought right off the bat. I was ready to have to make a lot of changes since all i did is built the kit. This is first electric truck i have had since the first rc10T complete with the skinny front wheels! Its a lot closer to driving a buggy than i thought it would be, very reponsive. It did have a little push on throttle which i think changing to the 30 block will fix but i am not sure. Still cant aind a plastic chassis though.

I run the team truck. I know Avid bearings are cheap, but thats not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for the strongest 3/16x3/8" bearing out there, I don't care about the price. I'd rather buy once than two or three times.

By the way if any of you guys run on a rough track, make sure to give RPM
s two stage pistons a try. Check the sig, thats one part that really helped me alot, calmed the truck down over the rough stuff, and with 90 1/8th buggies racing on the same track that weekend it was rough!

Without any biased answers, which truck is better for racing the T4 or MF2.

both are really great trucks. it just depends on your driving style, and parts supplies.

If my driving style is super aggressive, which is why I switched to a B4, what car?

The drive train of the Losi cars seem to hold up better but if you run a B4 you would be better served by running a T4. The B4 and T4 share many more parts in common (caster blocks, steering knuckles, rear hubs, hingepins, etc.) compared to the Bk2/Mf2. Call me a dummy, I have B4 and an Mf2.

That's funny. I prefer the BK2 and the T4.

I wonder if anyone has tried this before? Dremel down the bracing on a carbon chassis to about 3/4 or 1/2 height to allow for more flex, while still getting the benefit of lower wieght. Plus you would save even more weight because of the slightly reduced amount of material on the chassis. I'm thinking about getting a B4, and am debating between the FT and team kit. I know alot of the stuff on the FT I really don't need, and if I just have to switch the chassis anyways, why not just go with the team kit.

go with the FT and get the plastic chassis. as for bracing you can also get glitches with the graphite so it would kinda be a waste
