Just to let you guys know, Associated has posted Barry Baker's modifed setup along with Bob Stellflue's stock setup from the Novak Race on their website.

Default Shimmig

Quote:
I agree. Proper shimming is vital to all shaft cars particularly the EVO3. I think the AE gears are better, but they still need to be properly spaced. Proper shimming will also free up the drivetrain too
How do you shim the TC4 drivetrain?

what shims do you use?
Does asso have a part# for it?

Thanks for the help!!

you use the shims that come with the kit. AE also sells them seperately. Look for the diff shim kit. Speedtechrc sells them.

On how many to use...it's hard to say. I think it differs from car to car. I have three tc3 and two TC4s and they're all shimmed different. You have to experiment a little. Start with the kit recommendation and go from there

Default Thanks 51...

I'll check it out. I can't decide on my setup. The team guys say use anti-dive and anti-squat. My car feels better with no shims and 6 degrees of caster. What's the deal! Why do my setups always differ that of the Pros? Can't figure that out. I must be a pro's, pro!

Word Up! LOL I feel ya. Im going to run this weekend with some of the fast guys with my setup and then on a practice day next week Im going to try the new stock setup and see where it gets me. Cause the Novak race was a tight layout so the setups should suit my track and hopefully my driving. RcKnight, do you have the graphite?

Default Yep...

I'm running all the graphite stuff, but the arms. I'm wanting to check out BMI's upper graphite deck for the tub chassis, but he is in no hurry to post a pic of it. Waiting...waiting...no patients you know. I hope it will make it stiffer.

Does the battery mod put more flex in the chassis? I would also like to find someone to mill out the battery slots for me.

Is there a compatibility list between the TC3 and TC4?

RCKnight...

Why aren't you running graphite arms? They are the most vital bit to reduce the flex.


Nova F1 Racer....

The short answer is no as a large proportion of the car has changed. However someone may drawn up some list. Sorry.

Anyone know where I can get some aftermarket parts for the TC4? I got some Lunsford turnbuckle already.

Many people upgrade to IRS aluminum outdrives. Associated also makes lightened steel ones as well. If you will be doing alot of racing, the graphite kit would benefit you better than "aftermarket" parts that just look trick.
