I can never rule out anything. The new chassis setup is very nice. I will always like Associated stuff and I doubt that will really change any. I go thru so many cars but one things for sure it really lets me see the differances between cars and can for my own opinions on how and why things work like they do.

I've run one but don't currently have on one my car now. It does make quite a bit of difference on both carpet and asphalt.

The chassis plate is 2.5mm, the top deck and spine plate are both 2mm.

Should be available as we speak.

What's up,I posted this in the Rookie ZOne and they said I should try this here. Well I am a noob and last night I finished building the TC4, soo I need advice on the tierods...

Using calipers I constructed the tierods into the length prescribed in the manual 1.82mm, and last night bolted on the wheels. Well the fronts look like they point outward in a Y and probably at 2:00 slanted outward. As if the steering rods are not long enough and the tierods are too long.

Should I just adjust it, eyed to level and straight? are there any set lengths that I should stick to? I am using the team TC4 with all stock equipment, will be running on asphalt at SoCal...

If you made them the length specified, then maybe you misplaced them on the car. The car should have a small toe out when built per the manual. You might re-check your lengths and the placement on the car.

the picture (if you line it up in the manual) is usually a good starting point.

it should look like
V-------V
(|)------(|)

the length is the |------| between the ( )'s

did that make sense? heh.

The lengths in the manual are NOT 1:1.
