I think the car is great. I've got a setup that's working very well for me at my local track, and the car is every bit as fast as the others on the track.

I love this car more that anyother that I have owned.. it`s very easy to go fast with.. for the amount of time that I have with it I am much faster with the TC4 than I am with cars that I have had for over 2 years... money well spent on the TC4

the TC4 ROCKS! I love this car. the only thing is that you really have to forget how you used to set up your TC3 and start over. My TC4 is setup way differnt than my TC3. the other thing that rocks is that you hace SO much more adjustments that can be made to the TC3. you can change a couple of things to make the car do exactly what you want it to...

Have you guys got the part no. for the caps with bladders, or what model Yok are they from, and do they fit tc3 shocks. It's a real pain tring to do shock changes at a race meet as the shocks take so long to get even. Thanks

Default Did you do it yourself....

Dave? I wish AE would just revape the mold. It just makes sense and it could shed some grams.

Form what a little inside sorce has told me is that AE might be changing a few things up on the mold by the time the FT TC4 comes out..so there might be a few good changes on it:nod for the better(light weight I hope)

Lets see...

The TC4 is still brand new, as it was ONLY released in October.

It's only really being run on carpet right now because it's winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

It hasn't even seen a summer yet!

Give it time, it takes a while for a car to reach "maturity."

However, everyone seems to agree that for carpet, the new Barry Baker setup is pretty darn good.

I'm sure we'll see some good asphalt setups as soon as people can survive outside in T-Shirts.
