I'm wiped out-I'll try and get some on the web in the morning!!!

I'll try and answer questions on the BMI thread too-but to be honest-I havent driven it except in my basement settinf circles and such-so no real ideas yet.

The fact that it tweaked out so well and even circles are big pluses to me right off the bat.

OH-to remove slop in the steering rack-I did use the teflon shims sold by kvrc-I think the 0.015 thick ones and tightened down on them hard. Thaks for the tip on that guys. I also sandwich baged the pillow balls in the one plastic hingepin block I had to use. Hope it stays slop free.

one thing that annoyed me was the shocks, i can get the rebound the same on all 4 but just hard to keep the oil in the cap and in the shock body at the same time, managed it on 1, that shocks is perfect..other 3 are a bit bab, need rebuilding but im gonna get some bladders first (any recomendations?)

and for some strange reason the chubs, steering blocks and rear hub carriers are all definatley graphite, the shock towers and chassis might be (they look a mixture of both )

a couple of the bags look like they've been restapled, but the seal wasn't broken and it didn't look like it had been peeledoff and then back on (or a new one put back on)...really weird, i aint complaining obviously but its strange
anyone?

im gonna get some pics up of the tc4 later, anyone got any ideas of what i should get -alloy hinge bin holder thingies,clamp on hexes, graphite conversion, lightened steel outdrives etc etc.....btw im defo gonna get a spool, one-way is way overpriced at $50

Default TC4 fast

Hey Guys,
The TC4 was great, but I know I can even go faster.
Running on carpet.
The sway bars and Eric D.'s set up helped me go from 2 laps off the pace to TQ and A-main win.
I just put on rear blk. sway and used copper rear springs. I did not have a 2 set of purples springs.
I even run CRC's foams R6 ft. and R4 rear. ( like double purple and purple jaco's).
I ran 4 mm ride height like he said.
Car was great, now I want to get rid of a little chasis draging in corners, any ideas?

Merry Christmas to all.
jsaves

Eric's set up

I hope run it no later than this Thursday. Its ready to rock!!
And yes-you can pull the motor out with the top deck on and it uses the stock TC4 motor mount and cam!!

yeah i know, it was to dark (bad lighting in the lounge) and it needed the flash....but i can only have the flash on a certain setting..and if i want to take close up pics i can't have flash on if you get what i mean.

camera is alright in daylight, but when there is bad lighting and i need to take close up pics them im buggered.

edit- I will try and get some better pictures outside tomorrow in daylight if the weather is alright..thats if you guys want me to
