i wonder if pistons from any other cars will work?

i think ive got all the diff fluids from 3k to 50k... where should we start on diff fluids? im thinking either 7-7-3, 10-7-3, or 7-10-3, or 5-5-3. got any opinions? 7-7-3 was my fav in the losi

also what pinion are you on with the 4600? i have a trinity revtech 4800 coming in, im thinking i can probably gear similar if not a tooth down.

ok guys ran my ts4 again this weekend!!! what a awesome truck! once i got my copperhead to stop thermoing the truck was on fire. if you run the copperhead and 5150 you need to be in to 10t-12t range. 12t was still abit too much for esc i think with a 10t you can turn up setting on esc

10k front 10k center, 5k rear

42.5 front with red losi rear buggy
37.5 rear with white losi rear buggy

had to start in B-main due to esc issues. Lapped the field bumped to the A-main. esc didnt like back to back run... thermo!!!!!!!!

THe TLR22 pistons and Kyosho BB will fit but are about .005" smaller Which is not a big deal, by the weekend i will have Team C specific 5 hole 2 stages ready to test.

I am going to go with 7/10/5

I used the stock 13t with my 4600 and felt like i could go up to 14.

What size track do you run on? I'm going to be placing my order this week and I havn't decided on the tekin Pro4 4000 or 4600. I run on small to large size tracks. I am leaning toward the 4000 right now.

4000 is way more than enough, i am waiting on sensor boards for my 4k which is the only reason i run it with the 4600.

OK, so i got the first set of 5hole 1.1/1.2 pistons made for the truck today! i used the single stripe springs in the rear and dual in the front, have no idea which is which but it seems like the rear needs to be a little stiffer. The pistons feel much better, i am using 250CST front and rear which is light but since the holes are small it will more than likely work out. I think i will end up drilling the rear out to 1.2/1.3 on friday while testing.

Also changed the dif fluids to 5/7/3 and it feels MUCH better!

Did you know if we can install the center gear diff of the TS4 on the T4?

Think he was talking about the 4wd buggy T4/T4v2 but it is not a drop in fit for sure

Marcus, if you need an "independent" tester for those new pistons, just holler.

I never did get to try your pistons on that other car we ran, but I think I will give them a shot with these.

So I finished my build... What an easy great going together truck this was..


I put an old piston on top of the shock end to fix the bottoming issue


Ready to rock and roll! Painting the body tonight!

So this is just an observation ...this thing is light! My 22t with electrics and no body or tires weighed 3 lbs 2oz, my ts4 in the same guise weighed 3lbs 12oz!

Any idea what the stock spring rates are? They are by far too light. Are the option spring that come with the pro kit stuff enough?
