I've had both and the MF2 is better in my opinion.
reason is it is MUCH stronger. I have never broke anything on my MF2 all winter.

The t4 steers from the middle of the chassis- MF2 steers from the front. MF2 is more consistant in how it behaves- the T4 can be maybe faster but inconsistant and you have to stay up on the wheel or you'll loose it.

MF2 standard setup is good for most everyone. maybe lighter rear springs is it.

Can't go wrong with the MF2.

I would say if possible, wheel both vehicles and see how you like them.

The MF2 is a very nice looking vehicle but I prefer AE products for Offroad. I will say this for MF2, they did put alot of interesting changes into it over the MF1.

I own both the FT T4 and the MF2 and the MF2 is consistently faster and easier to drive than my T4 for me.

Pick up any R/C magazine and find an off-road race coverage. Look at the results page, and take a gander at the chassis column and notice how many more Losi's there are than AE's....You simply can't go wrong with a Losi.

ok, ill be the odd man out.

I was wrenching on an MF2 the other day actually... its a pretty snazzy ride. I took it for a quick spin around the parking lot and it handled really well. some time ago when they first came out i got some wheel time with one on the dirt and I have to say it was a pretty impressive little truck. good response, smooth feel, consistant handling.

on the other hand i was no where near trading in my T4 for one. Im consistantly faster with my T4 (and on the track ive probably had more wheel time with the mf2) and in my opinion its a little bit easier to find the suspension sweet spot on the t4. also, ive never broken anything on my t4 or gt without doing somthing really dumb with it. Im an AE guy
