Nope not really, I've got the FT TC4 and all I did was used the TC3 drive shaft cups with the TC3 graphite shaft and it all works fine....

The instructions tell you that some of the parts required for some of the setups are not included in the kit and must be purchased separately. The X3.0 block is one of them.

The most common combo was the Circle blocks in place of the Square block, and then a X3.0 Toe block.

You don't need Yokomo shock retainers to use the TC4 springs. Mine work just fine with the aluminum retainer that comes with the TRF shocks.

We are about to start are carpet season and this year its foam tires instead of rubber tires. What tire diameter is a good starting point for club racing? Any suggested starting points on rollouts for 19turn and stock. I have done some math based on the ratios I run with rubber tires and it seems like I'll need some smaller spurs or some big pinions to achieve the same ratios with the smaller tires. The track is 100x48. Finally get to run my FTTC4 this Saturday ( been saving it for carpet..LOL)
