Thanks.....
Just about everything except for chassis, arms, arm mounts, steering & bumpers.

You can use TC3 arms on a TC4 by drilling out the inner hinge pin hole in the arm, and you can use TC4 arms on a TC3 by drilling out the arm mounts and using cut down TC4 inner hinge pins.

Here's a listing of the parts for both. Print them, then grab your highlighter and you can cross check them pretty quick.

These do not belong to me but if you look close enough you will see some nice features.

Both of these cars have killed the new high dollar touring cars of today at some big ROAR races in 17.5 and Mod.

Marc, go back to post #12038. We've been down this road before, or go to the AE website. Both manuals are still listed for TC3 and TC4. I have a NIB TC3 Racer kit, with the Alfa body, partially assembled.........It could be yours!!!!

Stay Warm
