Default The way I see it....

if our not going to use your TC3 or if you have spares and extra Hop Ups/high end bearings - use them in the TC4, if you can't wait for the FT version.

Graphite Diffs. Blue print it right away
Since the knuckle hubs are still plastic/composite use the Losi Knuckles/C-Hubs

Use the Ti Turnbuckles from the TC3

And since the material is composite, which may be softer than the coming Graphite chassis. An upper deck may be needed (calling WarpSpeed.......)

But until we buy the Team version, we will never know. That's the most painful thing.
On the other hand, the team TC3, in capable hands can blow away any tourer for that matter. Oh well, guess we are all suckers since we love the TC3 so much!

Peace and Happy Racing!!
Lem


ps: i already made reservations

I don't agree guys. How many of you know, or are, a racer with two and three TC3s? A lot!. The AE "diehard" fans will readily support the platforms. AE may not make the bulk of the revenue up front, but they will get it. People will purchase every hop-up (AE or otherwise) and scaled down version, AE has to offer. AE has a cult following.

Will there be a kit to convert from TC3 to TC4?
No.

Can I use my TC3 shocks and shock springs on the TC4?
Yes.

Yes, but new holes will have to be drilled. No body comes in the TC4 kit.

Can I use the TC4ís chassis on my TC3?
No.

Can I use the TC4 shock towers on my TC3?
Yes.

Can I use the TC4 drive shaft and drive cups in my TC3?
Yes.

Can I use the TC4ís MIP CVDs in my TC3?
Yes.

Can my TC3 rims fit on the TC4?
Yes.

Are you planning on a rally conversion?
No.

Will there be a Factory Team version TC4?
Yes, but not for a year or so.

Will there be an RTR version TC4?
Yes, perhaps around the first month of 2005.

What new parts from the TC4 will fit on my TC3?
Chassis braces, steering knuckles, rear hub carriers, shock towers, shafts, drive cups.

Default TC3.0001

If Losi Puts an extra hole on the shock tower and calls it a xxxx-s then I will sell all my losi stuff that day. As a die hard losi guy I am confident that wont be the case, However, with assoc. new tc many fans of the company will jump ship when the new daring cutting edge losi comes out. Mark my words

Default Socal Raceway = Super Dialed Losi's

I guess I don't have to worry about getting beat by the New TC3.0001 in pro-stock that is a releif because the TC3 is a good car already I would have been worried if they would have made real changes Losi domination will continue

I don't know what you guys are bickering about. How much could they change, really? The problems the TC3 had have been fixed, and a few new options to make it better. What more do you want??? You can't make a great (and still winning!!) design that much different

we dont know if it has been fixed. It is all speculation on what we have seen in pictures. Give it a few months of hard racing and abuse then you could talk about the problems being fixed. Hopefully they have been though.

As for the worlds race, I think there are three guys outside of the associated and losi camps that could win no matter what chassis they use. Hara, Cryul, and Surikarn.

Associated is not gonna make their car look pretty because you want it to. They'll deisgn & use what works. I am confident that they will release a new car that can still beat a Losi on a given day. They already have a GREAT car. A revolutionary design...WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO DO? CHANGE IT COMPLETELY....No! They'll make small tweaks to it until they find something that works better. They arn't gonna completely ditch something that already works really well to develop what could be a flop! Thats stupid buisiness. Example: I know they have made a bunch of different shock towers out of CF, experimenting with what works better BEFORE molding the production pieces because molds cost a lot! They wouldn't spend that much on molds for something that hasn't been proven to work...Thats stupid buisiness bro!

Not flaming you....Just pointing out my thinkings!

BTW: It doesn't look like a CGM!? Even if it did....Yokomo copied Assoicated in the first place
