TPhalen,

Thanks for coming by the shop the other day and showing me the TC4 And also thanks for the insight you provided during our conversation

Guys, we are still taking pre-orders for the TC4, which we hope to arrive very very soon!

Sorry to disappoint....but, ummm, no, they won't.

Speedo: The drivetrain on mine is killer out of the box. AFTER the first run (gotta blow the grease outta the bearings) you will have a very free drivetrain.

SpeedTech: NP Stevo. My pleasure. I don't know if we did the drivetrain test or not....I don't think we did.

I have to agree with my buddy Tony. You will all be impressed how smoothly the drivetrain straight out of the box is this time! It was quite impressive. Everything was done right

is there any differences between the Factory Team shocks other than they are hard coated? Will they be light grey/green?
Just wondering.

Thanks.

'Sup Eric!!! Did you get yours yet???

Charlie O: They're close....REAL close. We have almost every part in....

Nightbreed: The hard anodized ones will last a little longer...the hard anodizing doesn't wear as fast. Other than that, they will be the same shock. The color will be a little darker than the green in the pix....those are pre-production samples that I grabbed. Gotta have all the cool stuff when it gets in....

TCR: Ya, the motor mount is a pretty complex piece to make. It looks bad-ass and does what it's supposed to do....help keep the motor cool without sagging the chassis.
