Should be available as we speak.
is there any difference in the chassis between the stock factory team chassis? I can see the changes in the new upper deck and spine but nothing looks different on the main chassis?

The hole for the steering is now a slot.

Well, the hole is not the ONLY thing....heh heh

It is made of a different material....something that allows more flex than the stock chassis.

Different rear blocks. If you look at the one all the way on the the rear of the car, it should be stamped with the amount of toe it will give.

The shape of the holes under the tranny cases are different.

That top plate is sexy. I dig the spine too. I bet that spine on a standard FT chassis/top plate would feel great on some rug. Makes me feel dirty for buying a T2.

i found the problem, the instruction manual for my tc4 had the same measurements for the front and rear camber tie rods, the instruction manual on the internet had a smaller measurement for the rods in the front. I adjusted it last night and it appears correct now...

The standard factory team ones work fine for me as long as you get the VCS2 shock kit ($16 I think in the US).

I'm really happy with my Tamiya shocks. They are hard to find in blue but they are out there!
