you cant race with a mamba max just to let you know, unless you are racing in a club race that does let you race with a mamba, so talk to your track owner to see what they allow first before you a buy a brushless system.

Neither, people with the T4 will say it is better, people with the XXX-T will say it is better (don't get the T3) The T4 and XXX-T are two of the closest trucks out there. Go for the one you can get cheaper or like the body of most (BTW this thread will probably turn into a flame war)

either truck is good the T4 or the Mf2,, me personally i chose the Mf2 i just feel it rides better, smoother and handles better and takes bumps better. plus by looking at both kits the losi looks of higher quality.. BUT the T4 has a smoother tranny... BUT again if you did not buy it yet WAIT a little longer cuz theres a new losi truck coming out late july definetly by christmas. the XXXT-CR it has an improved tranny a new steering assembly which will improve handling and also improved rear arms for better stability.. BUT lastly the Mf2 and the new XXXT-CR will be interchangable so if u do decide on the Mf2 you can upgrade to the CR parts.

Ive heard many people say its pointless to go brushless without 4 wheel drive cause you either wont get traction or you will wheelie over.

brushless is the only way to go anymore. if you set your slipper correctly it will be fine, so yes you should definantly still go brushless.
