Howdy

the 4-tec was actually one of the best RTR car not so long ago. it's not race ready as you said, but it's a good beginner's car. It's extremely durable.

However... bringing up your 4-tec to the specs you described below will cost you way more that buying a race-ready kit, and it might still be less competitive.

The options below ARE a good choice though:

Part #4710 Ball Bearings (5x11x4mm) (12)
Suggested retail price $36.00

Part #4875-Sway Bar Kit, front and rear
Suggested retail price $4.50

Forget the aluminum and graphite parts, and enjoy your 4-tec as it is for now! The day when you want to upgrade, ask yourself if you still want ot buy hopups, or change cars

Welcome to the RC car world

Later
Paul
