Probably not hugely useful for you guys over there but CML Distribution have just published Olly Jefferies setup from a carpet race last weekend which he won be a country mile.

Last time I checked Olly had just stuck his TC4 into joint 5th place at the World Champs with a 1st, 2nd, 1st from the first 3 races.
Knowing Associated, I am sure they want to get the data right before they post it to the public. Concerning the lack of information, there is a very good possibility that the quality of set-ups that they are looking for have not yet been found. Sending professional drivers, like Barry, out to tracks to test, is really the only way they will figure it out.

Got a real good look at his car and it was your basix TC4 with all the graphite components. Nothing trick at all.

I am not positive. I know this was said somewhere in this fourm but my guess is about 30 grams.

Hope that helps.

Some of the slop is due to a moulding problem that Associated are aware of and trying to rectify.

For a plastic kit, the TC4 is pretty stiff.

I second that. Polished hinge pins and aluminium suspension mounts did nothing for the slop. It's still there. And all new parts. But the car still drives good. I guess...
