checkpoint has already released the 19t. the submitted it tp ROAR and it was rejected. they are still gonna sell it just as an Outlaw motor. jonny wacther, a checkpoint driver, was running 19t at the cactus so i dunno if ROAR reversed their decision or not.

Default Just Getting Started In Offroad

Hi, i am florian, i am from holland, i am 16 years old and i race a Hot Bodies Cyclone (onroad) and working on a micro that i want up to speeds of 60 mph (onroad).
I always wanted a offroad and now i have the money for it so i am getting a B4 FT, but i can really use some tips that i could not find on the the other threads :
I heard of putting 4 Asso TC3 bearings in the steering rack but what are the measurments on those bearings and www.speedtechrc.com sells also a sort of TC3 steering bla bla bla... so is this what i need ? -> http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/eb...inid=281&id=232

and further i heard about the shocks that you need to drill holes or buy other caps... what's up with that ?

and i know you get a nice gearchart with the kit but do you need as much gear ratio's on the B4 as you need on my Hot Bodies Cyclone because im am only racing on 1 track and in the great outdoors, and i am gonna also race only 12t & 19t, because then i don't have buy a whole bunch of other pinions. and is the gear ratio just as importand as on my cyclone or not ?

and for a beginner like me that doesn't do major races just jet maybe only open club races do you need a spring set ?, and what shock oil is good to begin with on a outdoor track with jumps & dirt ?

Greetings Florian

Default Welcome to Off-Road

Hollowman

You really don`t need to use ball bearings on the steering rack...
The bushings will work just find....

Same for the screw on the shock cap ..
no need , just follow the instructions & the shocks will perform great, as is...

Pinion size for a 19t should be around 23/81, a 12T try 21/81

The springs that come with the kit will perform great , yet it always nice to be able tune to track conditions , so a spring set would`nt hurt to have .

Begin with the shock oil included with the kit (30w) ...
recommend you purchase a few other weight oil`s for tuning..
Get 25w, 30w & 35w to start off with...

Have fun with your new B-4 , its my favorite ride to race , you won`t be disappointed...

I am considering moving up to a Brushless system and was wondering what a good Stock Brushless Motor/ESC would be for my T4. Any recommendations?

Hollowman the factory team kit comes with ball bearings for the steering. The only thing most people will tell you to change is the chassis, the stock carbon one is to stiff for most all tracks. Unless your running a very smooth track the plastic one will probably work better.

James- Are you planning on running this brushless in a stock class at your track? If so I would just go talk to the guys at the track and see what is allowed. If your running in mod the GTB 6.5 system is great, or the LRP shpere comp w/a 6.5 or 7.5t motor would work well.

Yes, looks like we are getting the official nod to run brushless. While change sucks I look forward to spending a lot less time keeping my comm cut and replacing brushes.

The main players are Novak and LRP. The Sphere and Novak SS+ have stock modes. The Novak GTB Velocity series has done away with the stock mode.

Having said that, I would probably choose the Sphere or the SS+ with the SS5800 motor. The Velocity 6.5 and 5.5 motors are mostly too much for off-road. If you have a Spektrum be sure to check some of the threads here regarding the Sphere and the Spektrum system. There have been some glitching issues in certain situations. I'm not sure if they have been resolved yet.

I run the SS+ with the SS5800. I also run at Mike's. I should be up there this weekend. If you're racing I'll let you drive it so you can see how it feels in stock and mod mode.
