that's exactly the problem! Nice catch.

Be very very careful to make sure you're using the right sized pieces. . .

The only time I've had a problem with an AE shock leaking out the bottom is if I didnt get everything seated into the bottom of the shock properly or if I cut an O-ring with the shaft as it went through. Check the seals out and you will probably find your issue. I have found that if you "thread" the shaft through the seals it lessens the chance of cutting it.

I think so, just buy another set of blocks and put them on the back. The sets are the square, triangle, x and circle ones and fit at both ends.

Tony, when is AE going to give us wheel nuts that are low profile like the IRS ones? The nut doesn't screw on far enough for the lock to touch the threads.

Peter, I agree with your problem. I dont think its needed becasue you could put the nuts in backward like I did.
But, It would be nice to see some.

Default Too much steering turn in...

how do I get rid of some? I don't have a high end radio so I can't dial any out. I'm not running shims in the blocks. Should I go to 2 degs. caster instead of 4 degs?

Try running a front spool or get harder tires in the front.

I believe it's Trinity that has low profile wheel nuts, packaged in 4's.

Or you can just change out the Axles to ones that use M4 nuts ..
Square Makes them and they are about 1 gram lighter per Axle.. but Kind of pricey for 2 sets 38$

Just took the TC4 out for its second club night, have to say its feeling really nice now. Haven't had to do too much to it and only done 6 races total (with 3 non-finishers of my own doing/electrics).

Condition is Med Grip carpet, 19T stock and twisty tracks on foams. I'll try and get a setup sheet online later in case anyone wants to give it a go.

2Fast4U2: Unfortunately we only make the option blocks in aluminum. You can buy the standard blocks in plastic, but that only includes a 3 deg rear toe block.

Peter Busch: Well, we use the 'hi-profile' nuts for all our other applications...however, we are looking into low-profile ones. I agree....I like the low-profile MUCH better. I'll keep ya updated on this one!!!!!
