yeah like they said above i wouldnt go with an electric 4 tec. there are much better out there. now if it was nitro id say yes cause the nitro 4 tech is sick fast.

I mainly stick with Yokomo myself but they can get up there in price.

Have fun with it.

Thank you both. I don't plan on keeping it too long. I mainly just want to see if I like these kind of cars, without paying too much. So far I dig how it handles, I just need to get this fixed so I can get a good feel for it.


I'll look in to both of these suggestions.

Anyone know where I can purchase these parts? Or does any have any extra laying around?

Everywhere I look only has a couple pieces. I'd like to pay for shipping only once.

The ball diff. itself is Traxxas part #4280.

Here is a link to the rest of the parts. (4281, 2722, 4360, 2723, 4282, 4287, 4283)

I have my 4-tec with all my spare parts in 4 sale section (its also listed on ebay ). I have 2 #4281 diff screws, new belts f&r, graphite chassis, alloy knuckles, ect. Its probably more than your looking for, but a whole car is alot of spare parts.

Wanna get rid of any of the spare diff parts? While the car is nice, at a good price, i don't plan on keeping it long. just want it to test the TC waters, so buying another one isn't something I'm too interested in. But definitely a nice ride.

No problem. It was my first touring car, it got me addicted. The car is advertised with the diff parts. If it doesnt sell on Ebay (think ends saturday) I will no doubt hook you up with the 2 new diff parts cheap. I will let u know this weekend. Take it easy.
