Unfortunately as far as I know its not quite the right size.

Haven't Team Bomber made a TC4 version now though? I thought I'd seen it somewhere

right guys, at the recent BIWS (british indoor winter series) my car seemed to weigh a tonne, didn't loose much speed but it helps to have a lighter car....my car weighed in at 1630

my setup:

KO 2343
KO 302 reciever
novak GTX

im also running the fan kit and steel outdrives (lightened ones)

graphite kit is definatley on my list (or most likely the BMI kit) and im gonna give the battery tape mod thingy a go after i get the graphite chassis.

but are there any other ways to lighten up the car?

Default Bomber shaft

The tc3 bomber shaft will work you just have to use the old drive cups. I have it on my car now. To bad it never gets used!

Has anyone tried the Lunsford Titanium Hinge Pins? Are they worth the cost? Is there a big weight difference from the stock, and would they be better than the Associated polished hinge pin kit?

Be careful if you buy the Lunsford. They apparently didn't realize that the inner and outer hinge pins on the TC4 are different sizes. The kits I saw were all the same size

I found them on Lunsford's site. I think that they look like the right size now. They probably fixed it. Will there be a worthwhile weight difference with these?

RCManiax has released a carbon main shaft

I've just received some of the new Square parts this morning (steering bushings, screw set, bumper support, drive cups) I just have to go to the post office (it's snowing quite a lot here!)

I don't think I got ripped off since I've never heard of a Kai kit win any races...... I can't believe I doubted my TC4. Which belt car do you think is better anyway?
