The Team Associated T4 RTR truck borrows the distinctive forward-swept front end and rear-mounted shock configuration featured on the RC10B4 buggy, optimized with the new co-planar steering geometry. This suspension design provides maximum front-end clearance and minimizes bump-steer while maintaining desired Ackerman angles. Trailing front axle or optional inline steering blocks and axles can be used to adjust steering response. The suspension arms feature a "captured" hinge pin design so that no e-clips are used. In addition, the T4 includes the heavy-duty front hinge-pin brace and bumper for increased durability. The transmission uses the same 2.6:1 higher torque-capacity differential as the RC10GT. A double-sided slipper assembly (first prototyped by Team Associated in 1989) has higher torque capacity, easier assembly, and lower rotating mass than comparable double-sided slippers. The T4 chassis provides a super-low center of gravity by lowering the motor, battery, and shock mounting positions, enabling Associated's R&D team to design a sleeker, more realistic low-profile body, greatly reducing the large, unaerodynamic "humps" over the rear shocks as seen on older-design trucks. The T4 Ready-to-Run comes equipped with strong, dish-style wheels and high-traction racing-compound tires. The Team Associated T4RS Ready-to-Run 1/10th Electric Truck is the Team's state-of-the-art competition truck, and uses all the same, readily-available AE chassis components as our race-proven T4 kits. The T4RS RTR can also be upgraded as your budget and skills allow with the full line of Factory Team T4 hop-ups.
