Doubt it... What I used ti get rid of some of the Play/Slop... was some .7mm & 1mm tamiya silver shims that are used on there cars to space out the sus arms... They work quite well.

Default slopy

Thanks Dave,,
my arms are shimed tight front to back, but have no way to take slop out of where the hingepin/plastic ball go into the pin block, so I guess I should ask if anyone knows of a "Factory Team" (correctly molded) sus. arm block set

I think that the Plastic Ball that AE makes is about .5mm to small in Dia. so this is where some of the Slop is coming from... I was able to reduce some of it by applying a small about of thread lock around the plastic balls..... some what of a temp fix but you will need to re-apply it after a day at the track.. but you will notice some of the play go away...something else to try out

Is this even the trend know for stock? I new it was for mod and 19 turn.

Yes, unless you are running on some crazy carpet that gives no traction and need to get side bite back.

Default Need help...

I need a longer cvd axle. The treads don't go into the axle nut far enough with wheel spacers. I'm using low profile wheel nuts. Is there another car brand that has a longer cvd axle than the TC4?

Does anyone use a wider wheel base just in the front? How does this affect the car's handling?

Default Games Hall Setup

Mostly I think this would be for the UK guys.
ANyone got a good setup, or at least starting point, to run the TC4 on a games hall floor?
You know the sort of thing, Schumacher 20 mm Yellow Minipins, and next to no grip.
E-mail me with any help as I am doing an event back in Scotland, but coming from Canada I want to try to get a setup before I get there.
thanks
