Default What do I need with the kit?

Hi guys, please help me out.
Changing from Corally Assassin to TC4, I need to learn what parts or hop-ups I will have to order with the kit.
A friend of mine will bring the kit with him from the States to Europe. So I'll have to order all at once.
I will race the car outside, on asphalt tracks, 19T stock.
I have a list, any comments or additions to this list are welcome please !

* Servo mount blue alu
* TC4 caster block 2 degr
* titanium turnbuckle kit
* TC4 anti roll bar kit
* TC4 hinge pin set
* TC spring set
* TC4 alu front arm mount
triangle or circle? or both?
* TC4 alu rear arm mount
X-3.0 or X-2.5 or X-2.0 ?
or all?

Just got back from SoCal with the car. I have to say, more i ran the car the better it got! The drive train is EXTREAMLY SMOOTH!! once you blow the grease out of the bearings it is just as smooth as my FT TC3 that i spent a ton of time dremeling and shimming. There are a couple of things tho...

1rst the car really needs swaybars at SoCal. as bubbles said the car feels kind of lazy. All i did was play around with the shock position and lower the car. after that the car felt better but i am sure it will be awsome once i get sway bars...

2nd, the "x" block in the rear kept coming loose if you hit a dot or board. I think it is just the plastic... I am sure once the FT blocks come out there will be no more problems... plus they look KILLER!

All and all... the car is AWSOME!!! really hooked up out of the box... my setup was pretty much stock... the only thing was i am running blue springs up front and silvers in the rear... the rear shock position is all the way out. I was running Sorex 36r tires all the way around with medium orion inserts and extra hard orion wheels... The biggest thing was ride hight... I started at 5mm all the way around... on my last run i was at 4mm in the front and 4.5mm in the back and the car was extreamly hooked!

Now I just can't wait for all the FT parts

just my 2 cents about the car if anybody cares...

If you get a puppy, he might chew on your current TC4, but if you get another TC4, I'm sure they would get along fine.

No way Losi. Go to the pound and get her a nice homeless 50$ dog. That way you save a life. Get some action. And get a new car and still have alot left over for hopups and a doggy collar.
Im glad my wife doesnt like dogs.

Get your girlfriend a real dog, not those hobbydogs that bark and whine all day and night. Then train it to turnmarshal.

Do you think I'm lying about the ball studs? Pain and simple, they were bad. I was venting, after hours of building, nothing more, and I didn't care to cut up my good servo to make it work. More added shimming than I cared to do. Otherwise, I'm love'n this bad boy.
What up with those shocks were did they come from
