This question may have been asked already but I have not been able to find the answer. To maintain the same roll centers as the stock tc3 what if any shims do I need to use. I want to run Blackstocks setup from snowbirds and am confused as to whether I need to shim under the arm mounts or not. Thanks

I'LL TAKE ONE!!! Seriously. I want it. Even with the graphite tub chassis, the TC4 still flexes more than I'd like. And the car is heavy, even with all graphite AE parts. Will your chassis make it lighter, protc3? (using foam tires, of course)

Send me one and I'll test it out for ya in mod TC at the Gate.

51 - I assume you had a good time at your first Cleveland?
Yea, I wish I wouldn't have gotten delayed in Dallas for A DAY and got some time to practice. I'm pretty sure if I would have started with the car I ended up with I could have been in the "B".

Actually the smallest one is incorrect. The sway bar thicknesses are as follows:

Black = 0.055
Silver = 0.063
Gold = 0.078

Looks like you had a good run in the main. I dont know what happened to you on the first lap but it was not so good. Looks like you had a solid run marching back up from then though. Hopefully you had a good time....

I got my TC4 today and have most of it together. My fingers are about to fall off from all of the new holes that needed to be tapped.

I will be moved down to Phoenix next Saturday. Plan on running TC as well as my offroads. Scary as I have all the parts for my BJ between my TC4 and B4's.... its going to be interesting come Cactus as I will be ready for a race for once...

Any chance I can get the setups from SRS? Going to do the kit one for a few laps and tune from there. Just have to get used to onroad again as it has been some time..

Default Part 31005?

Associated Molded Carbon Steering Block & Hub Carrier Part #31005

I've got 2 packages of these that have 1 set of blocks/carriers. Went into the shop yesterday and they have the same part number with 2 sets of blocks/carriers.

What's the deal? Call AE and get them to fix it?
