Well, Ive never owned a 4 Tec, but I would assume somehow raising the chassie/suspention for starters. Then look into tires. Before others with it or have actually done it offer better sugestions. But I would gess that would be the place to start.

I converted a TC3 to a rally before. Never hada 4tec but I think the same steps would apply. I had to extend the shock towers to use longer shocks. I used 2wd buggy rear wheels on the front and rear. Just a starting point.

The 4 tec is belt drive, so you would have to come up with something to shield the belts from off-road debris.

longer aarms -for width
longer shocks -for suspension
rally or offroad -tires for traction
different body -for tires and suspension to work
more money -for the belts and pulley's you will be ruining
