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.

Thanks for the info there... Good stuff

Lufaso, have you talked to Mike Blackstock recently? He's run his TC4 in both stock and mod at the Gate. The car looked awesome in stock this past weekend. Even with minimal setup and practice time, the car already looks as good as a fully tricked out BMI TC3. And Mike's car is still all PLASTIC and he was running STEEL diffs. Anyway, the Classic should be a good tryout for the TC4's that will be there. Maybe we'll even see a new Losi car.

The real test for all the manufacturers and the thing they are most interested in is this months world champs. This will be the true guage of where each manufacturers car is at, especially those manufacturers with new cars.

What degree C hubs come on the front of the car and what seems to be working the best?

The manual says 0 blocks. Wish they were either 2 or 4. But then again, maybe the have a good setup for the 0 in the kit.

Or you might be able to use shims under the front blocks to get a little more ... just a thought

I've been running the all steel diffs and all plastic as well, with near standard roll center. As I moved the setup towards what I normally use on carpet, it became very comfortable to drive and felt great. It is much easier to tweak compared to the old car. That said, I'll probably try to copy Mike B's setup.
I'm sure you will see the new Losi at the Classic.

Maybe he means in terms of tuning. More roll center tuning options with the lower arm mounts & inner camber links, etc. to get the car dialed.
