I am 99% sure the chassis is longer than the T4 chassis. I don't have one yet, its coming later this week hopefully.

I may be wrong, but I am almost positive its based off the T4 but the chassis has been extended. Best bet for those who are curious is to call team assocaited and ask their tech people. I am sure they could tell you for sure.

But when I get mine I will post pics as I am sure others will as well. I know there was a build thread on RC tech, may want to check that out.

Put mine together today and the chassis is longer than a t4. Put it next to mine and i bet it was about a inch longer wheelbase but that was just eyeballing it. Dont have pics sorry.

It is too long for ST class. Here are some pictures of mine. I put every single factory team part on it that I could, minus titanium nitride shock shafts only because the LHS is out. This truck has titanium turnbuckles, FT shocks, top plate, steering assembly, hinge pin brace, a-arms, rear chassis mount, milled motor plate, ball differential, 30 deg ft casters, CVDs, ball bearings throughout entire truck.

Truck is ready for racing today. Wheels are balanced, tires doped, crossweighted 50/50 to within 2 grams, 50/50 left to right, 35/65 front-to-rear weight distribution (scaled). I am running a Tekin RS Pro, Novak 13.5, spektrum pro w/ sanwa exzes plus, Reedy 5000 35C, Hitec 5955 TG.

In comparrison today the only major difference we could find between the two kits was the chassis. There are some differences but nothing major.

T4 arms will break if you hit hard enough, but if you don't wreck much it isn't a problem. With my Factory T4, I broke a rear a-arm about 2 months ago and I don't even remember the last time I broke a front arm. I swear it has been at least a half year since I broke a front arm or more. I don't wreck much and go often without getting marshalled. I am about ready to replace the front a-arms though, they are starting to get sloppy at the hinge pin!

That's because it's for Racing, not Bashing.

I wouldnt really worry about it too much, the body and bumpers do a good job of covering everything up. The only way I see you busting arms is if you totally blow into something and it breaks the bumper on the way or you just happen to land just right onto something.
