a 8t is to much motor for offroad truck. i ran a kr 8x2 in my losi xxxt and it was insane and to hard to control. completely undrive able unless high traction and you have lots of experience with mod truck i think you will find the 10 a lot esier to drive. not only that a lot eisier on your t4. i would personally get a 11x1 if they had it i like singles in truck alot more than doubles

If you have a lot of money to spend on brushes, and batteries, and armatures, then go with the 8x2 if not go 10x2. If it is for offroad

Do you have a lathe? The cobalts have brushes that last a very long time, but they have to be cut quite frequently.
