Which is fastest, CT5 or 4-Tec 3.3?

Buddy has a 4-Tec with 3.3, I was about to order a CT5. Will he beat me in a straight line?

really depends on who is willing to lean theire engines out the most.

to get most out of those rtr engines, get a tuned pipe and run a fuel with 16% nitro or more, and a low oil content like 12% (not the stupid 20% oil that most hobby shops sells)

Didn't know the 4Tec came with a 3.3. I know the trucks do now. Unless he just bought the engine and put it in his 4Tec

More than anything it comes down to tuning and traction

I think I'm gonna go with the CT5. Looks like the HPi bodys fit them better than the 4Tec. I like the realism.

Thanks,

Default 4Tec v CT5

I just got the 4ec 3.3 about two weeks ago, and it is easily faster than the CT5. My neighbor has one and we have been racing with them. Where the CT5 smokes me is the handeling. The 3.3 in the 4tec is too fast. The CT5 is much mroe forgiving, and with a lower CG doesn't filp over as easily.
