Finally able to run the TS4 this weekend. changed the diff fluids to 10-10-7 and the truck was really good. We had 12 trucks in the Amain at Backwoods RC Short Course Shootout with a full compliment B main also. This format was very different qualifiying sent the top 5 to the Amain in each heat then they had an LCQ that sent 2 to the Amain. In the main you would draw a number for the starting position, I drew 6th in the first main and finished 5th with a few bobbles. The second main was a bit harder starting 11th I got a good start and moving through the field. With 45 seconds to go I was in 4th and on 3rds back bumper when my esc said it was done, finishing 6th. I made a few small chassis changes through the day and my car was very good.

In all I am very happy with the TS4 as this was only the 2nd time I ran 4wheel anything.

Traction is great isnt it!!




We now have a European distributor! They placed their first order last night and they will be fully stocked at all times with the goods! This works out great since USPS decided to jack international shipping through the roof, they went from 15.00 to 25.00 in less than a week! EuroRC will have their first order in about 3 weeks

Check them out and if your overseas show your support! www.EuroRC.com

I find myself with 4 of these trucks so if any one wants one PM me, I need to thin my stable. I also have a lot of spare parts all new in the package.

Took 2nd in pro4 at round 5 of the GA indoor winter series. Truck was almost perfect, but I'm going lighter in the diffs to get my corner speed back up. I have 7,10,5 and may got to 5,7,3 or 5,5,2. I found that the truck seems way better with a thicker rear sway bar.

I tried the same front and rear but didn't like the truck driving from the rear. It doesn't fit my driving style. The best my truck has cornered was my first setup of 5,5,2 but I wanted to test other things. I may just go back to that bc I like a lot of off power steering.

Drive pins are replaceable. You can get what's basically a bicycle chain breake and it will press them ot, the replace with a pin of the same size. I've had to do it on my nitro multiple times and will have to on my ts4 soon.

for outdrives, there's special hardened outdrives available. (TS412 Hard Connecting Cups)
I got some, have put it into the most wear spot (center diff front, stock one wear out pretty bad at that spot),
only driven 2 practice days though (around 10packs), not any wear shown yet.
Need more testing.

I knew some losi ten-scte drivers use torch and motor oil to do a secondary harden job, because those losi outdrives wears out even worse.
Personally I never tried it... because I don't have any of those equipments, nor I have a pit/garage to be able to set fire on, nor am I trained to do those potentially very dangerous job...


pins can be replaced easily, go on ebay or amazon, get one of those motorcycle chain breaker for $30-40.
the pin is 2.5mm diameter (if I remember correctly), and the chain breaker piece can do as thin as 2.2mm.
even amainhobbies have those pins (2.5x10mm?), or you may get a bunch(perhaps 100pc per bag) from the industry like mcmaster (durango drivers get cheap and good quality 3mm hinge pins there)
