My very first car was a 4tec, i got a CF chassis kit and some aftermarket shocks and thats really all you can do with it besides electronics upgrades.

Ill post some pics if I can, but if you want to seriously get into racing, I reccomend you get rid of it now and get something better.

well looks like you got the right idea, both the cyclone and the xray are good choices (but get the cyclone).

Was the 4tec a limited POS?

It looked cool back in the days. I bet it would make a cool brushless basher

Ugh, heavy, fragile...

The best brushless basher is a TA05. Durable, cheap, and doesn't absorb grit like the sprint 2 does.
