Oh an also check out the aftermarket section, there are alot of other cool hard to find that stuff that usually has to be ordered from overseas.

They're the outdrives I was talking about . I thought you'd be able to get them in the US. I only use them up front and havent had any problems with the back plastic outdrives even running 19t a couple of times (I expect they would wear quickly though using hotter motors often).

I've seen people using the schumacher ball cups on their TC4's. Anyone know which part number those are so I can order some?

Hi I'm a novice doing parking lot club races and want a critque of my TC4 tub setup. It's based on a mishmash from the rc10.com setups and mines. I think my problem is my turning radius is wide, steering is slow, fishtail a little and I need faster top end speed in the straight. I may try out 2 setups I found earlier in this thread with one guy from japan. When I built it I cleaned off all the flashing, nothing was binding and everything was free rolling smooth.

Do I really need a faster servo? What's the safest highest gearing for a P2K Pro with the stock 72T spur? People told me I should not use stick packs and buy 3800/4200 batts and a Monster or Colbalt motor. What gearing are good for those? Also where do you buy RP 30 tires?

I only have a MRC 969 charger that can only charge up to 4.5Amps. I like to get more serious with racing and I plan to buy an ICE charger, Novak equilzer tray with a radioshack powersupply.

I want to try the Spektrum telemetry lap counter so I can track my changes as I still have no clue what I'm doing mostly.

dtam:
I would try going a spring softer and 10wt lighter oil all the way around;
maybe try a one way;
that servo is fine for stock
the manual has good starting points for gearing, go up/down teeth based on your speed, heat, runtime (well, this shouldnt be so true anymore)

At this point, it may be best to grab a good set up from somebody and practice and race with that for a while to concentrate on driving and learning what the car can do before getting too deep into tuning.

I tried the IRS input shafts on my TC3 years ago and didn't like it. They never stayed true for very long for some reason. I love IRS stuff for the most part but I never cared for the input shafts.

I thought TiR made some titanium ones but I haven't been able to find them anywhere.

Default anyone using Maxamps lipo packs in a tub TC4?

Is anyone using MaxAmps lipo packs in their TC4 (with the tub chassis, not the FT or other graphite ones)? I'm looking for some feedback on fitment, what I'm hoping is that the larger 6000/8000mah packs fit okay. Any reccomendations on strap solutions for thicker packs welcome as well!

dtam, start with 40 oil all around, and silver springs all around. also make sure you have good ride height, like 5.5mm front and rear.. stick with the diff for now, later go to a spool in the front, or lock the diff depnding on traction...

Has any of you guys use Tamiya shocks on your TC4? If so, how are they? Are they any better than the FT TC4 ones with the shock upgrade?

Thanks in advance,
Mark

Default FT TC4 ITF CHASSIS

Has anyone tried the whole ITF chassis kit on the car on tarmac with rubber tyres?

Most people with an FT at our track found out that removing the spine plate made the standard car much better anyway

Over here (england) everyone has just bought the ITF top deck as the chassis does not look any different than the stock one, and nobody is running the spine plate anyway.

What's your thoughts, is it worth getting the whole kit?

Yes i've try the whole ITF chassis and love it.

The ITF chassis does not look different but it flex more than the standard chassis.

The chassis stiffeness depends of the grip:

On a low grip asphalt i like the ITF chassis and top deck without spine plate.
On highest grip track i put the ITF spine plate and the car become more precise, sometimes i put the standard top deck with the ITF chassis and ITF spine plate.
