RC10T4 RSRTR

Team Associated’s RC10T4 racing truck wasted no time in proving itself in world-class competition, with the T4 sweeping the ROAR Modified Nationals Truck title with the Reedy-powered T4 just a few weeks after the truck's initial release. Team Associated is proud to offer the National Championship-winning T4 truck in a Ready-to-Run package, now upgraded to "Race-Spec" standards with a Reedy Radon 17-turn motor, the latest LRP "Ai" digital speed control, and a Team Associated XP2 radio system.

"If you're looking to get into 1/10 electric truck racing but don't have a huge chunk of cash, give the T4 RS a look. Its performance and value will impress you, and you can always upgrade it to Factory Team spec as your budget allows."—Stephen Bess, RC Car

The 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 Ackermann 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 T4RS Ready-to-Run 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.

Features
  • Reedy Radon 17-turn electric motor, installed
  • Team Associated XP2 radio system
  • Blue aluminum shocks
  • Your choice of two repainted body color schemes, red or blue
  • Trailing front axle or optional inline steering blocks can be used to tune steering response
  • Angled bellcrank steering minimizes bump steer to maintain constant steering angles throughout the full range of suspension travel
  • Front shocks are mounted behind the shock tower. All four suspension arms utilize a “captured” hinge pin design that uses no E-clips
  • New 2.6:1 laydown transmission now uses the higher torque capacity differential from the RC10GT. Ultra-compact, efficient, low-CG design.
  • Longer dogbones and axles have been designed into the rear suspension to push the T4 out to maximum legal width for more traction.
  • High torque capacity, double-sided slipper provides finer adjustment, easier assembly, and lower rotating mass than comparable double-sided slippers.
  • Impact-resistant rear motor guard and body mounts. Lower motor, battery, shock and body mounting positions give the T4 a lower CG for higher cornering speeds and greater stability.
