I haven't had any problem with that, but put a dab of thread locker on it and you should be fine.

Three weeks ago I wrote here saying what a great weekend we had on our TC3's last outing. Son Josh won all 3 finals just as he pleased.

We tested the TC4 a couple of times shortly after andit didn't take long to convince Josh that it was even quicker and simply better in every way.

So yesterday we ran the TC4 for the first time at the 7th round of our Nationals, and, yes you've guessed - it was the quickest car there by a country mile.

But we didn't win all 3 finals. At the start of the first Josh just pulled away as though there was no opposition. By lap 5 he was already lapping, and T boned an errant back marker and damaged the motor. It was a good and encouraging start, but the retirement meant he would start race 2 from the back of the grid.

Race 2 got under way. Third by lap 3. Second by lap 5. Took the lead for keeps on lap 7 of 22. New lap record in the process too.

Race 3 was a start to finish win.

So you could say the TC4 has taken on where the TC3 left off.

What a car !!!

In looking at all the asphalt set ups I see that most are using a spool. On asphalt what are the performance characteristics of the diff, the spool, and the one-way?? What will each one do to the performance of the car?

And will any damage occur to the diff if I tighten it down enough to act as a spool (i have the lightened steel outdrives btw)?
Thanks

--Mike

Diff= Car works good under braking, the most understeerish of the 3. Low to med Traction tracks, tight tracks

Spool = Car works good under braking. Car needs different setup to get steering into corner. Great on power steering. Med Traction, tight to more flowing.

OneWay = Car can get very loose under braking. Lots of off power steering. Great on power steering. Med to high traction, open flowing tracks.

To build a Spool, use a set of diff rings to trace out and cut some out of a Parts bag header card. Use in place of diff rings. I take the large diff balls out and use an old thrust assy. Then crank 'er down.

This might be a better place to ask..... has anyone put a TC3 rack into the TC4 ? I understand that it's suppose to really help the car.
Thanks.

I have been running a Kimbrough 100tooth spur and anywhere from a 26 to 31 pinion. I have some old Trinity Magic Pinions. I have heard that www.precisionracingsystems.com is who used to make them for Trinity and is now doing it for themselves.

I have never heard of this. I have played around with ackerman shims on the TC4 rack and my favorite for carpet was 2 small shims. I'll measure the thickness when I get home. I am about to start my asphalt testing.

Jack,
would it still be ok to do this with the steel outdrives? Or should I use the plastic ones instead?

And when you say the large diff balls are you meaning the ones that are seated in the large ring gear or in the thrust assembly?

I dont think the plastic ones will last as a spool, they barely last as a diff

Oh yeah, spools are hard on front end parts since there is no give in the drive train up there. If you think your gonna smack a board, try to be off power when you hit.

The steel parts are the best to use for a spool and the large balls are the ones in the gear itself. Hope this helps.
