Default tc4

Just back from our first proper test session with the TC4.

This car is just out of this world. And I am comparing it with our TC3 with which my son Josh won all 3 finals just as he pleased last weekend. So this car is already better than the quickest car on our tracks.

We ran 4 packs today, actually making very few changes. It was more a case of getting used to the car. We ran on old tyres, and generally testing equipment as opposed to race stuff, yet he still made both the same race and lap times as he did while racing last Sunday.

His comments: The car is so much easier to drive and drives so much more precisely. ou have to put much more effort into the TC3 to get a really quick lap but with this one quick laps come up so easily.

I must say that even looking at it, I could see that it was so much more agile. When he corrected mistakes the car did what he asked straight away and with total precision. Everything seemed so effortless and although it was lapping regularly on record lap times, it actually seemed as though it wasn't going fast at all. Yet the watch gave us a different story.

There's still so much we still have to try. I have a feeling this car is going to end up so much quicker. And Josh is absolutely beaming with optimism.

I asked him today if he had to choose between his all conquering TC3 and this which would he drive in a championship meeting.

There was no question about it. No hesitation. TC4.

Is it possible I've hit it so right already? I'll keep you guys posted.
Yeah jon i agree 100% same with my tc4 compared to the tc3 the first run on the track and setting a fastest ever time' that's almost 'out the box' just put on 2deg front castor block and 2deg rear toe in block and WOW it was much better than the tc3.

I know it's been a while but does anybody have the BMI top plate on their TC4 for the tub chassis?

I just wanted to know if it made any noticable differences because I'm considering getting one.

I tried the BMI top deck on my TC4, for running foam tires on carpet in mod class. I felt it made the car push more. I'm usually trying to get the car to steer more, so I took the deck back off.

I really wish I would have bought a JRXS. I am not impressed one bit by the TC4, especially on tight tracks. I smoked the rear diff the 3rd time out, but I expected that. The fit of parts is sloppy, nothing new there with the associated TC.

Its really riciculous how much extra you have to buy to get a TC4 competitive in my opinion.......Graphite kit, aluminum diffs, rpm ball cups, caster blocks, rear toe block, and fix the binding drivetrain.

Ok, I feel a little better now. In general I'm just kicking myself for going with the TC4...I new better after having a TC3.

What binding drivetrain?

Other than the diff gears on some kits being slightly too thick (likely caused your problem), I've not seen anyone report there is binding in the drivetrain...

My car works great, I'm very new to RC (2 months) but at our track, the TC4 won A and B mains (19T) this past friday night (club night) with mine winning the B +)

I've replaced the front outdrives with lightened steel, replaced the rear blocks with alu and added alu hex's and thats about it.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! How can you say that. The jrxs hasn't even hit the market. Who knows, maybe that car is a piece of crap. I really like my TC4.
