In defense of car Action, it was their READERS that made the choice. The FTTC4 is still pretty popular!

Thanks EA and Rick for all of your input on the car.

I'm now crious to know the durability of the car, how does it hold up compared to say the x-ray or drx? I'm a decent driver but still have that big wack ability into a corner, so I'm curious.

Best Regards,
Corey

Cool. I hope there is an "On Rails" set up.

My wife and I really love our FT TC4's. I think it's a brilliant car. It goes really well in stock. A mate of mine the other weekend said that my car looked the most planted on the track.... Then the rain set in!

Cheers,
Waz.

I am not sure of exact costings yet but i believe it will be a RRP of $595AU.
But as always it will probably be worthwhile doing a bit of a ring around of local shops to see what deals are available.

This has got nothing to do with Rick's view here.

Im really looking forward to getting my TC 5 will be good.

However I must say that RCCA readers choice awards is crap in my eyes. I believe the company that spends the most on advertising is the company that generally wins that award. eg trinity who the hell uses anything Trinity anymore and yet they win all the awards. surely other people have the same view as me.

I use a Trinity DPD and CO27 stock motors, royal oil, a few other things. I think that they are pretty good products. Trinity sure does get a bad wrap though...

I hit my fair share of boards during the past carpet season. Starting with a full prototype car, I broke a few parts here and there. But when we went to the production parts, I broke far less. Eventually, the only part I broke were caster blocks. And this was due to the fact that they were not the production models. The prototypes used had to be modified to work and I feel this weakened them somewhat. There is no problem with the production versions.

But as I have said many times, if you do end up breaking a part, it is not going to cost you an arm and a leg to replace it.

Juho's LRP setup will go up on the AE site soon.

I've run the production car a couple of days now and I'm really excited to race it at the Reedy.
