Paz-yes. Fits both cars. It is graphite. I have the team blue anodized aluminum strap which I like better, but have to run it upside down for these new fatter batteries and my flat Scorpion Lipo, so I made the swap to the newer strap. Its an Associated part.

This is a hobby time is irrelevant.

Hey guys,

I have a TC3 FT. However i have done some stuff to it. i have the IRS carbon fibre chassis. As well as the TC4 Chassis Braces and Towers. Soon ill have the NTC3 steering rack. anything else that would be worth upgrading to preformance wise?

Sounds like you have everything that needs upgrading lined up. Next time you need a driveshaft, though, upgrade it to the newer drive shaft and heavier input shaft cups. You may have already done this.

Blue Factory Team TC3 Aluminum Battery Brace is part # ASC 3974.

I have twisted two driveshafts and broken one input cup on the TC3. I was running a locked front diff that puts extra strain on these parts in a crash.

PaZ-I have both chassiss in hand. The graphite brace will fit both the TC3 and TC4. The hole spacing is exactly the same on both cars.

Try Speedtechrc.com. The front one-way for the TC3 and TC4 are the same go check both. If Steve at Speedtechrc doesn't have one, try ebay. It's a good place to find TC3 parts...especially if you don't mind used.
