thats the yokomo cf center shaft for the TC4.

in my personal experience it didn't hold up very well... ran it may 31st till 3 weeks ago when one of the dogbone ends starting spinning due to a broken pin.

running mostly 19T and stock...

Default I would like to get me an old

TC3 Team Bomber one. Is the Team TC4 one still avaiable from Team Bomber? The RC Maniax cf shaft looks nice.

The Team Bomber shaft is a much better shaft the Yokomo one is lighter by a gram or two... but the Bomber one is a brick S#!t house .... and is pinned in 2 spots at each end..

ROLL CENTRE SPACING. It's one of the things we have been playing with quite a bit lately. Running TC4 with BMI chassis we first ran with .5 shims all round as we had found best on the tub TC4. This was good.

Yesterday I tried lowering the rear RC by running the rear without shims. Result - lower roll centre at rear = more grip at rear = less steering. Next I'll be removing the front ones too, to see if I can get more steering and more grip. So far it's been best with 0.5 (that's 2 notch) shims all round.

There is of course another possibility. I am presently running 2.5 rear arm mounts. I couldleave the F and R spacing as it is and go to 2 degree mounts. this should loosen the rear - and give more straight line speed. Definately worth a try.

What impresses me most is how much these small changes effect the car's characteristics.

Andrew: 20 runs on a set of brushes is REALLY economical. Consider: most of us change them in 5 runs, if not less. It sounds like you are getting really good comm wear for that many runs, but i would say you could definitely afford 3.50 USD every 20 runs for brushes.

John Bull before you make that drastic of a change, try using the 3.0 block with the circle front. It will give you 2.0 toe in but with the wide stance so you keep the stability. I have that on my car and really like it. As far as the spacers, thank you. Thats exactally what I wanted to know.

dedub-I know youre right. And I can afford to get the brushes, I just was thinking if its not necessary theres not much point. Long live uber economy!

If i were to get the team kit, what hop-ups would you all recommend getting? i was thinking maybe the carbon component kit and two swaybar sets(for front and rear). is there anything else i should add?

Default TC-4 parts on a TC-3

Ok lets try this again.

Will the caster blocks from the TC-4 fit the TC-3? I was hoping to try out the 6 degree blocks.

Thanks.

They should fit fine. I would get the Graphite kit, the sway bars, 4 deg blocks, Yok shock caps, Sqyare's lightweight spur adapter. If you can hold out for the FT kit then I would do that or maybe consider BMI kit
