Now coming from you, who have had, raced, tuned, set up almost every car under the sun, this is a real complimentary certificate for AE and the TC4.

I tend to agree with you. We have done so little to our car, and it's right up there with the quickest for 1/10th of the effort.

And judging by the results I've been seeing of races in UK, it's the TC4 that's doing the business there too.

WTF???? This new steering rack hurt the car? ummm isnt this the same mod everyone was doing to their tc3's becaus it was so much better??!!!


I was pitting next to an Associated team driver and his 2 biggest complaints were chassis flex and steering geometry. He said that AE drilled some TC4 chassis to fit the TC3 rack and the car was better.

I had a TC3 and put a nitro rack in the car and liked it. The pivot points are in front on the nitro rack and behind on the TC4 rack giving different steering geometry.

I was talking to a world class factory driver this past Sunday and he also said that AE changed roll center and shock mount location on the arms. He also mentioned the ackerman change.

Mac,

Practice is your best friend! Also, check with other TC4 drivers at your local track as to what they run for a setup, there will be some who will be glad to share their knowledge. I've been running a Touring Car since January, and it doesn't take long to get the hang of things if you spend the time on the track. There are setups on the web, and in these threads, they may or may not work for you but all you can do is experiment. My suggestion... talk to the guys at the track get some help, and once you have at least a workable setup... drive, drive and drive some more.

I donít know if this is a rhetorical question but I have not found anything in my searches regarding this subject. My question is whether everyone is using 7 cells or 6 cells in their TC4. I currently am using 6 cells mainly because most of the cars that I have are T4ís (3 of them). Is it a given that because they is enough room for 7 cells that is what everyone is using?

6 cells.the other slot is so you can move the battery forward or back as a fine tuning adjustment.

Default Jag88....

Did the AE team driver say if they were going to make those changes in the new running parts?

Default TC4 Steering

I notice a lot of play in the steering rack (left to right/right to left). Is this a good thing (necessity)?

Asphalt Setup

Does anyone have a good setup for asphalt? Large flowing track high bite.



It will be the first time the car has seen asphalt instead of carpet.

Thanks,

Default Battery Spacer

You will want to put the spacer at the back so that the cells are forward.

We split our batteries and put the spacer in the middle. Seems to make the car more stable, easier to drive.
