TC4s are winning every weekend in UK.

We have only run one National meeting with our TC4, winning 2 finals out of 3, new lap and race records.

We have no complaints about the car. It's a poor man that blames his tools.
What class are you guys running? Have you tried running mod? using 8x2 V2s and Reedy PTs / TI Worlds? Let me know, thanks

I ran a one way in my TC4 on carpet with rubber tires, it helped me carry abit more speed through the corners.

Around 9 to 1. If your name is Spashett you could probably manage with 8.5, but for us lesser mortals, around 9.

I would have thought that with Scandinavian drivers taking 3 Euro championships in a row with TC3 and TC4, you just might have convinced yourself.

Perhaps when X Ray win a Euro you'll convert to a TC4.

Hy!
I saw on your TC4 pics that you were running a 8T corally Gold with a V2 endbell
I have many corally black motors an really love them, they're the best I have but why do you run the V2 enbell?

Is it when you practice or do you like the extra effiency (runtime) the V2 enbell provides?

I hope you don't mind me asking this!

Thanks!

I agree with you for foam tires but you need a one-way for rubber tires otherwise your car will push like a dump truck.

LOL jack smash.....i would pick myself up a one-way but why the hefty price tag? i mean isn't $60 a bit overpriced?

over here in the UK they are abuot 50, even the xray one is 40 and i thought that was overpriced.....

although..i don't know why you guys are understeering with rubbers...i had to get rid of some of my steering last time i ran rubber on carpet although i think that was just because the car was digging in to much while slowing down for the corner...

I should rephrase: You can get steering without a one-way but at the price of cornerspeed.

And those things are pricey because the one-way bearings are so expensive. I still dont have one for my car yet. Probably wont need one until summer when the traction comes up on the asphalt.

Default Anti Roll Bars

What does everyone think run with one or no, racing on carpet, with foam tires purple springs in front, copper in the rear, 50wt oil all around.

Roll bars = faster corner speed.
