Default TC4 steering on TC3

Does anyone know if the dual belcrank steering on the TC4 is a direct drop in on the TC3 ?

I don't see it being a direct drop in. the TC3 has a lot of chassis reinforcement, webbing, in the front of the chassis. I don't think the screws for the steering posts are in the same place either.
Brushes? We don't need no stinking brushes!!!

No will not work.
The mounting positions for the ballstuds are on different sides of the steering rack.

What will work with some modifications is a NTC3 swing arm/rack system.

It will require drilling new holes and dremeling on the stock chasis.

I had a BMI TC3 and it had the holes pre-drilled so it was an easy mod.
