You can probably get away with just the front bar on carpet. Most of the carpet setups I've seen for the TC4 have only used a front.

Did anyone else notice that their foams rub on the steering knuckes? I had to shim the axle and grind away some of the knuckle. Now I remember why I got rid of my TC3 and got my xray's.

Hi friends.

You're in luck. I just got a parcel with both bits this morning so here are some numbers.

YOKOMO alloy shock cap set with bladders (pair) YS - 8D.

YOKOMO silicone shock seals YS - 7S.

Hope this helps.

Default toe in mod question

RBLove said to use the front block "O" on the inner and the 3Degree Rear block for about 1.5 of toe. Is this right or do I have to leave the stock Square Block in place and run the "O" block in the rear?

Thanks,

You have it right.

Inner rear block is the 0, outer (rear) rear block is the 3*.

I'm actually running my exact setup from my TC3 1* rear toe in the rear.

0 block in the front rear, 2.5* block in the rear rear.

I ended up keeping the rear square block in place and replacing my X block with a Circle... mostly 'cause it's a hassle to get to the square block out w/o removing the tranny case.

This should yield a decrease in rear toe by about 1.66 degrees... making it about 1.44. Is this too little for foam on carpet?

I sent in my melted diff and broken rear carrier blocks in to AE and much to my delight I just received a new lightweight diff (with bearings in the package, no less ) and new carrier blocks.

Interestingly, the bag with the blocks had *two* steering knuckles and *two* rear carrier blocks. The first two times I bought this part there were only one of each in the bag... so I guess they corrected that.

Happy AE customer!

Thanks, just wanted to make sure I was reading it correctly. Off to go compete with a bunch of BMI Xrays.

Later,

I picked up some carbon hub carrier and steering knuckles from my local hobby shop. They had 2 packs on the wall. One with two sets of each and the other only had one set of each. The amazing thing was that they were the same price!

I am pretty sure that Associated packaged a bunch of plastic or carbon version Steering Blocks & Hubs completely wrong. They always package the TC3 or TC4 ones with 2 of each in the package.

Probably a mistake on part of the employees in that section of the plant or instructions to them by management.

I finially got a chance to run some laps on carpet with my TC4. I think I've found a pretty good set up:

Front: 60 wt, Purple spring, #1 shock tower hole, 4 deg caster block, 1 deg Camber, Plaid Foam

Rear: 40 wt, Copper spring, #4 shock tower hole, 2 deg (0 Block) Toe in, 1.5 camber, all arm spacers back for a short wheeel base, Purple foam

.25 shims Front & Rear Blocks, Camber links inside with 1 shim (.30), 5mm ride height, Battery up front, traction compound only on rear.

Front & Rear arms shimed to remove slop.

The car drives like it's on Rails. Maybe now I can get out of Lastplace!
