Dan,The RTR body works "ok" for a free one but not good enough to pay for.. On the gearing..19 wind right,72/31.On the mounts,No flex,cuts down on the slop.

A few companies make light drive shafts. Team Bomber (graphite and trick as hell) IRS, Tobee Racing, and Yokomo to name a few. I might order the super light alum one from Tobee thru Speedtech. It is just for mainly stock racing and 19t. It is alum and is really been milled to be light but it will not hold up to mods!!!!! I had one in my Yoke SD and for stock racing and 19t it was really nice and light. Team Bomber's are nice but are 40 bucks. I also have some old TC3 graphite ones a buddy is sending me in a few weeks.

Another new car Daniel? LOL

Soooooo.....what class are you running? Stock, 19T, Mod? Foam or Rubber? At Hobby World right? Do you have a one way? Do you have steel diffs? Sway bar kits? An assortment of springs? (silver and blue mostly)

If you move the hubcarrier/steering arm, it seems as though there is a lot of flex in the forward/back directions (increased and decreased caster).
Hi Eric,

Run a couple of packs through the car it should loosen up. If not, I would look at how the pinion gears are shimmed. Mine were too close to the ring gear. I have also cut one of the drive shaft "biscuits" in half to allow the shaft to float a little.

As to the caster block slop, I have left it alone. I had poor results when trying to repair the play there (my attemped repairs appeared to bind up the car). It seems to work OK when I leave it alone so I did. So far, so good.

Art,

Rubber 19t man! I kept a lot of my old TC3 stuff around when I got rid of the car. Got the one-way, spool, some diffs (one aluminum), 2 full spring kits, a front sway-bar comming with the car along with some caster blocks.....

Send me whatever setup the guys were running at HW! - theblackkat1@gmail.com

Hey Tony, does the TC3 center drive shaft fit on the TC4? Do you need any mods to make it work?

Correction: I'll have the one-way and the extra spring set (as well as extra bones, arms and other cool stuff) as soon as NVisible gets them in the mail

I just looked in my NTC3 (and now TC4) parts box and remembered....I sold my back-up electric one-way to some dude at Hobby-World

Anyone know of some pin-cushions I can put on the stock TC4 CVD's? I got some aluminum outdrives with my TC4's name on them....
