How consistant are your laptimes with the tc4? Have you found its full potential on race day?
It probably won't be as quick as a tc5, but it shouldn't be that far behind them unless you are not consistant and/or you don't have the car setup too well.
The biggest difference is between a brushed motor and brushless, the brushless will have more rip out the corners when its geared right. On smaller tracks the difference between a 13.5 and a 27t brushed motor isnt that big, infact I can still set good times with a 27t motor against others using a 13.5, but I have raced for about 15 years now, so that helps a lot.
At bigger tracks you may find it more noticable though.
Until you find the cars potential, you won't really know how it fairs against the faster, regular guys.
If you race a pan car as well as the tc4 you may find you don't have enough time and focus to get the best out of both.
I've never been the kind of guy to race two classes at once, I like to put all my eggs in one basket, simply because I find that putting all your efforts into one car works best for me... And its cheaper
