Dotman, I said previously that I turned it to 85% which is the correct setting. I did turn it down to 45% which stopped it but the car would barely turn.

Ah...I turned mine down which got rid of the chatter and my car still had plenty of turn in. Actually, removing some steering made me faster too.

I punched the stock pins out of the driveshafts that come with the kit, and put IRS pin cushions in - it is a perfect fit.

I finally got to drive my TC4 tonight.

The track finally opened up and I had to familiarize myself quickly with the new car before the race.

Right off the bat, I put on the 2 degree rear mount.

The front end was too heavy with the batteries up front when running the oval course so I shifted the batteries back to unweight the front somewhat.

The little bit of traction compound on the fronts proved too muchand caused some chatter in the inner front tire and I did not add any for the rest of the evening. Smooth running from there on.

The springs from my FT TC3 were eventually replaced with softer springs.

The car was a blast to drive and I look forward to practice next week.

*Cough* *cough*. They're on my car right now.

I installed the thickest swaybars, to make sure that everything fit properly. The bars had a slight issue fitting into the aluminium ball studs. There were many burrs still inside the part. I figure that even if I don't end up using the Gold bars, at least they would fit if I wanted to try...

After measuring 0.080in sway bars, they're darn thick! I mean, with my silver springs, I can lift up the right tire, and the left tire rises!(I am assuming 0.080, because I got three different sizes... )

I also noticed that the bars seemed to be poorly cut. It's not too much to worry about, because my kit was kind of fresh, along with being the thickest bar being used...

Tomorow will yield much testing with the new stuff. YAY!


Jay, SoCal tomorrow?

Boomer, SoCal tomorrow?

Dave, I need to send you a PM. I'll talk to you in the morning. Too tired right now.

Default Cvd's

One idea for the chatter of the cvd's is what i had and that is thread lock, one of mine was binding, just strip the cvd down just rub the inside of the axle and the coupling with some very fine wire wool this removes any tread lock and be careful when you rebuild them back up that should sort out the problem.

Default ESC Problem

Hey guys, I just took my v7.1 out of my TC3 where it has been working fine and put it in my TC4. With the switch off, when I connect the batt the red led comes on and stays on. Turning the pwr switch on makes no difference and pressing the set up button makes no diff.


Any Ideas what happened??????

DO you still have the manual?

www.RC10.com will have the manual to download.

Check for a loose wire at the switch.

Thanks for the tip on the switch. It had a broken connection inside the plastic switch housing.

Paul_tc4:
The binding on your cvds is something I was warned of. It has something to do with the pins. I switched while building the car and never had that problem. Alos, in the rear, go with the aluminum outdrives on the diff. I had problems initially with the rear diff (sounds like different problem), but when I put in the aluminum and different CVDs in back, I haven't experienced problems. Luckily I was warned up front.
