I took mine to SoCal today and played with it.

I started at stock setup with a one-way in and the medium sway-bars at front and rear.

Car pushed so I made some adjustments. Was a bit unstable in certain areas as well.

Anyway - ended up changing to gold springs and 50WT in the front with NO rollbar. Everything else was as above.

Car was hooked.

Unfortunately, I broke an outdrive on my one-way so I drove 1/12th for the evening.

I'll be driving it again next week.



BTW - I was passing X-Ray's, Corally's and HPIs all day! And keeping up with 19T in the infield as well.

i remember some people asking about putting on a TC3 steering rack and then people saying why would you want to do that when they were changing on the tc3 to the nitro tc3 rack.

well it cant be that bad of an idea seeing as how Jonas Kearup is using it at the LRP TCM.

Do you know how to drive?

I happen to really love my TC4. It's been my most succesful car yet.

Ok.

Some basic thing to start out would be to :

1) Stiffer Front Springs/Softer Rear Springs
2) Heavy Front Damping/Softer Rear Damping (Shock Oil)
3) Try moving the batteries back, although you may loose some steering.

Did you try a front swaybar yet? That should defintatly work.

ive always found rear traction to be greatly affected by rear camber. Make sure you have around 1 or two degrees to start with. That combined with what paul tc-4 said should do the trick

ne 1 know how the TC3 rack goes on the tc4? IE is there milling and drilling involved, or is it a straight swap? Be kind is this turns out to be a dumb question. I dont have my tc4 around to check it out.
