You guys think running 30w front and 25w oil rear with blue fronts and silver rear springs is to soft for running asphault ? I'm using tamiya's with 2 hole pistons .


Oh forget to say track is pretty big , fast corners but also have some tight ones.

Not at all, specially if the track is low to medium grip and bumpy. I recently ran 40 wt w/#2 pistons f/r and I am soon to try 30wt

I just reset my car using Barry's setup from Vegas. Basically I gave up looking for one on my own. I was not happy with the feel of the TC4 until tonight. All I can say is wow! That is a great starting point. It is much more responsive than the foam setup included with the kit. I think the feel comes from the soft back with the 2 degree caster. It feels more like my 12L, which I love.

Can anyone who has started or is using this setup tell me how to add steering in the sweeper? I would assume the caster would be the place to start normally. But I really like the responsive steering and slow speed handling now. The only thing I need now is practice and some good stock motors. Oh and I was using the silver front sway bar which I'll disconnect next time to see what happens to my lap times and the feel of the car. I imagine the steering will increase slightly. Laptimes went from 10.7 (Sunday) down to 10.3 in the mains today. TQ was a 9.7-9.6 so I have a lot of room to improve still. Now I actually want to drive the car instead of benching it and racing the 12L.

Try running a longer camber link in the front to add steering in the sweeper. Or maybe a stiffer front swaybar.

Yeah, be careful with the blue screws. I stripped a few of them, luckly there my motor mounting screws on bottom of chassis so I don't really ever take them out.

Pick up stainless steel screw kit for it...WELL WORTH THE CASH. Few of my buddies at the track said that was a big problem with the tc4 and the cheap screws.

Thats good to hear. I put together a Mugen MBX5 and it was kind of hard. I always try to replace to stainless screws but only if i take the org. out. thanks guys. not to many guys in my club run the factory Kit or
the rtr tc4 they use the JRXS (booooooo) :P so i am kind of in the dark. I really like team Associated i love thier 18t and 18b with the tekin brushless system in them. fun stuff.

Thanks
