Hi Guys,

We have all the TC4 spares and hop-ups we received up on the website, including graphite components, factory team parts, teflon shocks and more. Click here to go directly to the TC4 pages

Thanks

Steve Wang

Default Turnbuckles

The kit lists turnbuckle sizes as 1.00" and 1.25" but the FT options list them as 1.30 and 1.125. Why the change and does it matter?

I think it is because a "TC4" turnbuckles package isn't yet out but AE make some FT Turnbuckles in those sizes.

They will fit fine and actually be stronger as there will be more of the thread inside the ball cup.

Can anyone explain to me the logic of packaging the steering blocks with a rear hub carrier? I can never remember breaking both of these at the same time. It burns me to have to purchase these together and overpay for the one part I broke, and now they only come one per package. Everyone I know always ends up with bundles of hub carriers when all they need are the steering blocks.

I also feel that they should be packaged seperatly, but about the only one per package. It is likely an error. My lhs got them in liek that and i had them check with ae, there was a batch that was send out wrong or something like that, you could probably email ae. If it is that way, then sorry im wrong.

I agree... the steering blocks and rear hub carriers should be sold seperately... and the 2.0 and 2.5 X blocks should be available in plastic.

I've already broken two rear hub carriers, which means i've spent 2 x $8 to replace them... which is way too much.

yeah i know it really is crap that to get a $2.50 part you have to spend $10 on parts you dont need xrays good like that (selling parts indivudually) but not many shops have them but tamiays the worst you have to buy huge trees of parts

I have done a pretty cool/interesting spreadsheet of weights of all the carbon v's plastic v's alloy parts, if your interested email me at coxycrc@yahoo.com .

I also agree the toe blocks should be made in plastic, the alloy ones and so heavy to the plastic ones.

I have been using Losi castor blocks in the front mainly to get rid of the slop from the AE ones. The losi ones only need a slight flie to sit them in the arms and there is zero slop. I also take out one of the arm spacers and replace it with a Tamiya 1mm spacer, again zero arm slop with this little bit extra thickness.

I must say the polised hinge pin set is a real good option. Takes out a lot of slop and is way smoother.

The new chassis def makes the car pretty stiff. I think the only thing I can't get yet is the roll bar mounting kits. Not interested in the bars as I make my own, but the mounting gear seems to be the hardest to get.

You should always run AE wheel nuts in backwards.
