hey whats up yall?
i have a 4tec and this is what i have upgraded to:
11x3 team orion motor
LRP F1 Pro reverse
alluminum shock caps
tamiya slicks w/ hpi star rims
what else should i get that will make it faster, or better, or cooler looking?
i have $60.00
$20.00 are for the body im getting altezza/is200 from hpi.
so i got $40.00
thanks in advance!
different shock springs might make it look better

I think I heard tamiya springs will fit the 4-tec. Make yourself an exhaust out of aluminum piping and a film canister, real cheap way to get a cool look.

go to www.hpiracing.com (http://www.hpiracing.com) then go their R/C Forum, click on HPI Bodies and Painting tips, then in the upper right click search, and type in Fake Exhaust, the subject is For those people who want fake exhaust... There are pics and explain how tos in there. I have one on my car... it's interesting... I dont think you are supposed to run the car with the thing attached cuz my car seems to want to defy gravity since then... Or maybe Im just getting worse at driving http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

i think you should invest in the 0'degree hub carriers , the castor wedges, and the o' suspension mounts... also you might want to look into better ball bearing... try red seal, you should also look into different springs and shock oils spur and pinion gears are also a plus... ask someone at your LHS for a ratiofor great top speed but good acceleration too... i hope that i have helped you
