The truck handled good right out of the box. It jumped good and landed level.
I flipped it a couple of times going over big jumps, and nothing broke.
Probably not that great for bashing, but good for cheap fun racing if you can get a class of these going.)
Now the chassis is great but yes Associated anything below 1/8 is very VERY fragile....but their target is for skilled racers not speed haulers and bashers. Both racers and bashers spend equal amounts of money either trying to go faster for better lap times or the basher adding more titanium, new extended titanium chassis, suspensions, even better plastics....can't please everyone but part of r/c fun is rebuilding and modding to learn.
I got bored moved on to guns but I still keep a few favs around...)
I can honestly say that the RTR version of the T4.2 is junk. The radio and the electronics included with it are terrible. The Radio should have been binded out of the box. The truck is really twitchy and the light on the radio was blinking (supposed to be solid green). Figured it couldn't have been binded correctly. Tried binding it for at least an hour... no luck. The reverse on the speed controller is supposed to be a two stage, kicking in only after the pulse from the brake is gone. It may activate once every 10 flips of the radio trigger. The slipper clutch was shipped to ridicuolusly loose. Couldn't even drive it on the carpet without it slipping so much that is constantly whined. You should be able to hold the back tires while applying throttle and have the front tires life off the table an inch or two. That's how I have my Losi cars set up. No such luck... the adjustment nut is fully screwed in and I'm still slipping far too much... UGH.
Really frustrating for a brand new item. If you absolutely have to have the T4.2 buy in in a kit version and purchase your own electronics. The RTR's slipper is terrible and the electronics are worthless - opt for the Team version or buy a 22T.)
I can NOT see the t4.2 being any improvement from the t4.1 and I would recommend buying the kit, if you decide to buy team associated at all. It's unfortunate that they leave out all the quality parts in the RTR version.
The only place this car would be suitable is on an open paved parking lot or a large flat dirt field. And that is seriously all the "off road" that this rc car could handle.)
