Saw the car run today in person. Kyle Skidmore was out running with us today and was getting some practice time with the car for the worlds.

The car looks good. Well constructed, and the changes are easy to spot.

Can't wait to see what it does for the "regular Joes" who run the TC3.

No it is not on general release yet, although it is not far away.

Many of the team drivers now have their cars.

Dave - sorry to be off-topic, but can you PM me the differences in the three different Ride Stratus bodies?

Thanks!

I saw a factory guy run the TC4 on carpet on the weekend. The car has more steering then the TC3, other then that it looks the same.

I don't remember if this was answered before. But does the new kit come with 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0 rear plastic suspension mounts? Or are they only available as a Factory Team Aluminium Option?

Looks like it only includes the 3 degree rear block. You can buy all of the blocks in plastic or aluminum.

Ultimate Hobbies says it has it arriving today. Any way can I get one because it only says "Arriving 10/04" not "in stock"

I am 2nd on the pre order list at Ultimate Hobbies in Orange, Ca, they will call me as soon as the car comes in, and i will post it when they call me. Although i heard there were some problems with one of the tooling machines that makes part of the front bumber, & that is what is causing the delay, no production = no shipments.

Continuing with tradition, I'll post the setups I use at http://home.comcast.net/~mlufaso/rc/TC4/

Keep in mind, I haven't tested much with the car. I've been running it very close to box stock conditions, so check back after the Halloween Classic.

I Got a chance to look at, and see the new car run yesterday........In my opinion, it's a pretty good improvement over the box stock type tc3......Im curious (and hope) to find out if the vertical ball type suspention alone will yield benifits.......since (in my opinion)thats about the only thing ("performance wise" on asfault) that seems to be any different than the BMI chassis I currently run...........
