I am having a problem with my steering that I was finally was able to pin down. My problem is when I turn right or left about 70% or above I get some violent shaking at the wheels for a little bit, but then it works it way back to normal.

I thought something like my hub or foam tire was rubbing on something but that wasn’t the case.

What I figured out is that the gear that the drive shaft is connected to on the steering side and the diff bind when turn 70% or more and don’t continue to go smooth. I tried to move my gears from the back to the front to see if that would help but it didn’t… The cvds must be pushing on the diff and moving it more then it should to the side and this causes it to not run smooth with that other gear in the dif case… I have tried shimmed and un-shimmed and still had problems.

If I have it shimmed then my drivetrain is not free at all… At least if I am going to have this problem I will leave the shims out and have a much more free drivetrain.

Anyone else having this problem and have a way to fix it?
Travis, I've had this very simialar problem in my TC4. And to be honest , I have no clue how it was fixed. Well it still isnt completely fixed but I did get most of the "chatter" out. But what I did was shim up all the suspension arms and the steering carriers so that there is no play. After that, I shimmed the diff gear/ input gear very nicely so that there is no play in between teeth. This did help a litttle. What I noticed was that the cvd's bind slightly on 100% steering EPA, so I would turn that down a bit. Right now, mine is set to 80%. I noticed this horrible noise while the car is on the stand. But once I put it on the track floor, I didnt hear a thing and it didnt perform any different. 1 more thing, make sure all the upper diff case screws are nice and snug down but not overly tightend and make sure the diff is well lubbed.

Hope that helps,
Paul

Anyone have a fix for the front hinge pins being too small?

Also...I got the fan kit the other day. It DEFINATELY cooled the motor down quite a bit.

There is a Japanese company that will be making a slightly bigger Dia. outer pin set for the front and rear for the TC4 that should be out in January... from what I have nee told they will include the reamer or drill bit to match up the rear hub and front C-hub... ...

Rumor has it that AE has fixed the problem with the molds and new arms will not have this problem.

Default Jack Smash....

if that's true why does AE insist on keeping it on the hush...hush. You would think they would want to keep their customers informed/happy! Not one response from AE's reps here giving us an update. I guess their going to eat some crow on this one. One reason why I'm considering going to another company.

Default Any other...

rumored fixes.

How many TC4s do you guys see at your track? Just one at mine, ME. Racers are keeping their TC3, XXX-S and Pro 4s. This thread seems to be dead.

At the last Carpet Championship round I went too 2 weeks ago there were 5 TC4's in the A Main of 19T, finishing with a 1,2,3.

There were at least 3 in the B not sure about the rest. In 27T there were a least 3 in the A Main.

The TC4 has also begun to dominate our club nights with the last 3 rounds being won by TC4's with several 2nd and 3rd's aswell.
