Hey guys, just picked up this 4-Tec in a trade, CF chassis and all. At this point, I'm deciding whether I'm going to use it or sell it.
That depends on a couple factors, and my number 1 issue with it is the battery tray. I'm not running 6 cell anything haha. Is there some upgrade or modification I can do to fit a standard 2s lipo in it? There's definitely room in the chassis, but not in the factory hold down. If I can do that, I'll give it a green light and make it go.
Another issue it has is that the ring gear or whatever it's called (my first belt drive, forgive me lol) on the front is not really... attached to the diff. The guy did tell me that it was an issue and he used to tighten something down and it worked. So effectively it's RWD currently. I think I read something about a 3.3 diff fitting in it. Very interested in this possibility, because I'm assuming it's stronger but more importantly it's probably a gear diff. I'll pass on ball diff lol
The guy said it was sitting in his basement for a long time, he used to race it. My plan for a system in it is a CC SV2 and 4 pole 6900kv motor. And I run 5200mah 40c 2s batts in my other trucks, should make this thing scream.
Any other suggestions are appreciated, i think this little featherweight has a lot of potential. Thanks in advance
