Thanks
I guess nobody knows this???

haven't heard anything about it - only that the FT version should come out next year and I would assume the RTR would come out after that.

the B4 RTR came out first, something like 3-4 months after the release of the B4. Probably it will be the same for the TC4...

What happens when you change springs and they have different lengths? Coppers are longer than purples so does that you run more droop with copper springs? I think this method has some flaws.

I also broke a cast motor clamp, very weird. So I stole the one off my TC3 and didnt have any problems with it.

I would like to get the aluminum one but its $25 , give me a break.


The funny thing about that droop setting is that it doesnt really measure correctly. I did this method with newly rebuilt shocks. After I did the method, I wanted to see how accurate it was. Turns out that I had a droop of 8! Thats why I just take my shock off to measure droop with a tool.
And I'm pretty sure I was doing it right also.

Default When I build the shocks, I make sure they are

ALL the same length. The springs should also be the same. Seems to work for me.

Associated said on their site that the RTR TC4 should be out the beggining of 2005. So I would expect in at the end of this or next month.

As far as Xray v. TC4 I agree the Xray seems like a better car even just from an engineering standpoint. But the LHS has Zippo on there shelves for the Xray and a ton of AE parts even rims for a DS. I really hate thinking I might break some thing and have to wait two weeks for a replacement so I'll go with what is carried! I looking forward to leaving the darkside even though my xxxs g+ is the first car I was ever competitive with and I'm really wanting the TC4 but AE better get on the ball releasing the FT v.

I dont think that the X-ray is that much better of a car. I just think the TC4 hasnt been on the track long enough to make an impression yet.
