FYI, I think there is a thread i saw if you search that had this topic in detail. Kind of like the old "which is better.. chevy or ford".

depends. do you want to whip out a soldering iron everytime you have to remove wires? im sure there is some kind of .01 voltage loss but.. heck.. i dont mind.

.... now back to the TC4 ....

how many of you hardwire your batts? currently i use corally connectors but i was just wondering if there is any actual advantage in hardwiring the batts (i know there is less resistance)

is it worth hardwiring them?
I hard wire mine. as far as i know it is just less resistance which is good enough for me!

my soldering iron is on all the time anyways! besides it looks cool...

I hardwire. I have had connectors come apart on me and am not going to risk it again.

If I had 200 cars running at my club the last thing I would worry about is the price of the rug.

Default I think the NTC3 bumper is great...

but they should have flipped the rubber flanged gromets, so that it would hold the plastic bumper down. The foam bumper should then have been recessed for the flangged gromets. Makes more sense, otherwise the bumper keeps pushing up/down. Then make a stiffer foam bumper to hold it all in place. Just my two cents.

Hey Rcknight, in the directions for the nitro tc-3, they have the gromets flipped so it holds the lower bumper down.....

Default Rubberneck Racing Bumpers

As for bumpers you cannot beat a Rubberneck racing bumper. I have one and it is awesome. It has saved me from a lot of broken parts.

I tried the RPM TC3 Nitro bumper setup and it worked but it just was not as nice looking as the Rubberneck racing bumper is.

Later,

Hi I was hoping someone can help me out with a few questions. I have a ntc3 and I was wondering if the tc4 shares the same one-way as the ntc3. Also what color shock springs does the kit come with, and does the kit come with optional caster blocks?

Ntc3 one was does not work with tc3/4. TC4 comes with blue springs and 0deg castor blocks. No other castor blocks come with.

It is the same one way but the outdrives are differnt. you can buy the outdrives by them self. I did the same thing. the NTC3 outdrives are for a 200mm car where the electric is only 190mm.
