So I’ve started a nitro project that has been one heck of a rollercoaster but also has been very satisfying to learn about, anyway it’s a thunder tiger ek4-s2. A very elusive, puzzling, and wicked RCMT. When I started this build alike with others I had actually no clue about this truck, it’s history, or what I was getting myself into😅 but boy I’m glad I did it was like getting a hidden treasure, anyways I’ve done some extensive research into my ek as well as it’s history and have become very fond of this truck. I’d love to talk about anything to do with these trucks (mods, custom stuff, advice/experience) keeping most of the bad out would be preferred since these trucks get a bad wrap and I have read my fair share from other brand lovers bashing it lol buuut that’s also usually from uneducated inexperienced unenthusiastic hobbyists and hey to each their own right. Also I should say I’m not brand specific since there are “best for the occasion” of every brand. 😅🥲

Kinda surprised your sticking with the original engine, and haven't converted to a center diff. They were hell on the drive trains. Also if you didnt know the eb4 (I believe it was called. The buggy this is based off of.) Has about 80% i interchangeable parts for this thing.
Yessir I’ve found the center diff setup I want and am fighting over that or a two speed at the moment, really trying to “bulletproof” the diff system so a few ideas are in the air, including a custom setup. And yup the eb4-s2 buggy’s adaptable parts make for an easier time finding ergs, etc. but really on the hunt for triple h and msj love. Which is also the reason for the stock engine still being on it. Although I’ve found a few beauties that would be pretty sweet to put in its place until shelfing time 😅

Just get on with it. While you’re shopping you could get a 1/5th scale and really join the club.

Just a thought.
