Excellent...so it will be easy to tell the parts from one another.

Default Yes, I agree CRASH...

the problems are getting fixed, and I'm glad to read it on this forum. My biggest problem is not that there are some problems with the car, it's the fact how they do business. It amazes me how many suck @55es there are here. They would not be talking so kindly if they got lied to on some seller forum. Call an orange a orange and an apple a apple. Why is it, when someone lies on the seller forum, people are quick to jump all over that person. But if a company is dishonest, it's ok. Don't figure! In todays age, company dishonesty is ok. I mean they have to make money and we are all suppose to somehow feel sorry for them. LOL I will continue to tell my fellow RCers what an orange looks like. Enough said.

I saw that on Bakers setup sheet that he has washers under some of the ball studs... Can someone give me a part# for the washers/spacers or what ones I should use.

Hi there,

Got my TC4 a couple of weeks ago, run it once, its very different to my XXXS but i'm liking it.

Just wondered if there is infact any reason for offsetting the servo arm? would it be better to be straight? has anyone tried it?

Cheers

Default I think it's more about...

how far servo throw is. I think you need to off set it to equal left and right.

Default Diff help

I use to think that TC3 diff problems were for guys that were ran mod and fast guys. I have had diff problem four straight weeks. On completely melted , one broke and two irs light outdrives broke. I am changing to the AE lightened steel outdrives. Does anyone know the part number for the diff rings and bearing for these? Thanks

Hardcore diffs are aluminum, not Ti. They aren't as smooth as the IRS ones either...

I tried the kit, but it has d-rings and the new outdrives aren't d-ring.

Had a long conversation with an X-Ray driver and an HPI driver. Interesting.

I actually raced my TC4 last night. Barring my first lap not counting (got banged down below the line so I didn't cross it. . .only thing I can think of. . .) I would have made A-Main and done quite well. As it was, qual'd 1st in B and finished 2nd. Not bad for not having raced sedan for two years.

This car has been the easiest to set up of all the sedans (both nitro and electric) that I've owned. Started stock, made a few recommended setup changes which got me VERY close and then just made three changes (front spring, shock oil and then rear roll-bar) and the car was more hooked than my TC3 ever was.

Not saying the TC4 is superior to other cars. Not saying that AE is the perfect company. Not saying the TC4 is perfect.

Only saying it's been the easiest setup I've yet done on a sedan.

Boomey like.
