What thickness will you be getting done..?? The PAL ones I have right now do the trick and they are .5mm/1mm/1.5mm if you could get something in the 2mm range that would be good

It will be metric, probably like you said from 0,5mm to 2mm.
We are preparing also some other carbon parts for this car

Default Foam Tire diameters

I'm looking for some recommendations on tire diameters for the TC4. I'm new to on road, and have been slowly tweaking the standard setup to my mediocre driving skills!!

I am still using the foams (TRC plaid/purple) out of the box.

I see most people shaving them down quite a bit. I understand the reasoning, but can someone suggest a reasonable starting point?

Some info on breakage, for those who seem to be interested. Given my rookie skills, and quite a few board hits, the only parts that have broken are the front arms (I think I've done 4 so far). Good news is that I can now change them in about 3 minutes!

I got rear ended BIG TIME by a modified who was allowed to run in the stock class "for fun", and it broke the rear hub carrier.

Thats it so far.

Tnx

Paul

I've installed on mine a Yokomo large bumper made for the SD, you have to make the mounting holes bigger but it fits the TC4 pretty good, I didn't have enough crash experiences with the TC4 yet but I used it on my SD and it saved me a lot of front arms

59-60mm is a good starting point. CA the sidewalls as this will help prevent chunking. You also might want to go to Cyan/Magenta, this combo is faster everywhere.

Default cyan/magenta

Forgive my total ignorance, but aren't the colors sometimes specific to the mfg? I've heard that the Jaco's have another scheme that seems popular: Jaco double pink/orange front - double pink rear. Would that be the same as cyan/magenta? And is that from TRC?

Thanks!!

TRC and Parma use the term Cyan while Jaco uses the terminnology Dbl. Pink/Orange.

There are subtle differences between them that make for handling differences between TRC, Jaco and Parma-most due to the diameter of the rim and the width of the ornage strip.

TRC and Parma use the term Magenta and Jaco uses Dbl. PInk.

They are all softer than Plaid and Purples.

Hope this helps,
Ray

The consensus is that Cyan-DblPink/Orange and Magenta-Dbl pink is faster than the old plaid/purple combo under all conditions. The Dbl pink foam is softer than purple however the characteristics of the foam go beyond just being softer. The dbl pink gives less sidebite and more forward bite. This helps the car rotate but allows you to still put the power down off the corner.
