Shiming Blocks on Carpet.

Are most people removing the Block Shims when running on carpet?

Do the diff cases need to be blueprinted or anything else need to be done on the drivetrain on this kit?

I had to do a little work with mine but they definately are better than the "old" TC3 ones. Make sure you pay attention to the shimming. I have one shim next to the pinion on front and rear shafts and two on the other side of the case.

Plastic Diffs = 2 shims on long outdrive

Steel Diffs = 4 shims on long outdrive

Yes...most guys are removing the shims for carpet racing.

Scrad: You shouldn't have to do any blueprinting on the gearbox cases...I say shouldn't but....

Hey Tony
Just wanted to say thanks for coming out this past weekend to SRS. It was fun running against you guys. I didn't get to say thanks before you left. Being able to see your battery thru the body was awesome

For the most part, you will want to remove most of it. This past weekend I ran my car with .025 (1 tab) in the front and rear (no kick or squat). One thing I noticed when removing all of them, is that the arms will only droop so much, and on my car it was not enough to maintain the same feel of the car that was working well when my tires got smaller.

Check out the new videos in
www.radiocontrol.gr

There are some close ups of TC4s.

First there is one which I cannot remember to whome it belonged and then there is Barry's beautifully built TC4 with new shocks.

In the last video you can watch Marcīs best two laps of the whole event, a 12.5 sec. followed by the lap record 12.4 sec.

Default shocks.

I just bought this kit yesterday and I already feel hate for it. lol
Being w/ bag A. I've built a few kits. anyway. The shockcap when I go to tighten down the o ring comes like halfway out of the shock and it's not even tight. what's going on? and also one of the shocks is leakin out the bottom. what is the deal w/ this. lol. I've to it assembled right w/ the book.

I also have had the same problem with the shocks leaking. I followed the book step by step and they still leak. Not sure what is going on with them.

I've built mine without the top/cap O-Rings and I've had no leaking at all.

I had the same problem. I then noticed that I had the large o-ring under the cap instead of the small o-ring. Swapped them and it works good. Large o-ring goes on the shock adjuster for ride height, and the small one goes under the cap.
