OK guys I know some of you have had time to shake down the TC4 how good is this car all around? I will be racing with foam tires, and with all of the problems of a new car what do you think about this ride over all of the other great cars on the market.

Thanks

Hey,

I'm still running a stock Team TC4 and I want to run some foam mod (10x1). Will I melt the stock plastic diffs?

Melt? Maybe. Breaking the outdrives is more likely to happen. I tried with a 12 turn and made it 1 lap before I broke the front outdrives.

Man! The FT car seems really nice. But it has a very bad point I think. I can not fit my Airtronics 94257 servo into the car. It hits the spine plate.

This really sucks!!!!

Outdrive breakage? Did you hit anything?

Another question. Anyone have a low-bite spool or diff setup (rubber tires)

hey DW, I was going to try your suggestion with the front arms on the back but when putting everything together I wasnt happy with the way everything ligned up. I also noticed that the XXXs hubs need a lot of filing to work. I still have to break out the dremel and take care of them. Im going to try that carpet setup that I sent over to you next time out. I won't be able to get out for a bit probably not until November.

OK. I did get the servo to fit with cuting the servo ear to clear the drive shaft.

BOB: If you have the Losi rear hubs that arent offset, the only filing that needs to be done is the plastic boss that is there for the setscrew. I know when you try and line it up, it looks like there isnt enough room for it all w/o alot of work, and the bracing at the front of the arm looks like it will hit the hub with full suspension travel, but it wont. I included a pic of my car for clarification. It sucks you wont get to run for that long... i look forward to every day i can wheel. Keep us updated on your findings. : )

For those of you looking for a lighter mainshaft, swap the TC4 drive cups for TC3 drivecups, dig in your parts box and pull out the old school TC3 carbon mainshaft... its a direct bolt-on... i still have three of the shafts in my personal stash.

A pic of the whole car to show the angle of the front arms on the rear of the car. Yes, those are steel screws, i wanted the car to be up to weight, so i added a little bit of strength in the process.
