Dave could you post the whole car picture??? thanks

A good friend of mine uses a Maxamps 8K LiPo battery in his TC3 with great sucess. The battery is a little taller...but isnt a problem and is about the same weight as a GP3700. With 7.4V and a Team Checkpoint 12T double...that thing is sick!!!

Thank so much! That's precisely the kind of input I was looking for, and the weight and size are exactly why I'm interested in the 6000mah or 8000mah packs from MaxAmps (each on par or lighter than traditional cells, and, while taller, not wider or longer).

from previous experience, i seem to find the factory blue screw better. reason being i have a had a couple of stainless ones stip. then it makes it near in possble to get out. only the allen drive bit strips.

FT screws are good.

good price, cool blue color, lightweight

just be careful when using them, if you don't rush it, they don't strip and last a long time... i'm still on my original set of screws since the FT TC4 came out...

Looking for a little help on a pucs problems I am having with my TC4 on a dirt oval, high bite track.

I can drive hard inot the corner but about halfway through the corner and on acceleration, the car wants to climb the track.

I have tried changing springs, (currently silvers all around, except the right front I have a blue spring. 40wt oil all around as well.

Battery in the back.

Right side tires are -1 camber, left sides are at 0.....

I think that is everything?????

Any help would be appreciated.....

So if I understand your situation right, you say you're turning in ok going into the corners but pushing coming out of them? If that's true then you might see what caster blocks are on your car now, when you have less caster, it'll tend to steer the way you describe(more steering into the corner, but less coming out), & with more caster, it'll have less steering going in & more coming out(plus it'll be more stable on a straight). Check & see which blocks you have on it now, & then try adding some caster to see what happens(so if you have the 2 degree blocks, try the 4 degree ones, & if they're already 4's, try the 6's).....

Well that's a lot to address, but I'll give you my 2-cents,
Try the gold springs up front and silver springs in the rear. I use 35wt oil front and rear until it gets really hot outside then 50wt. For 19-turn I would use a 28 tooth at most, (but note the manual says 30 tooth, which seems way too much, try at your own risk). I have the same servo as you but run the Futaba S9451's in my nitro, they are much faster and my reactions seem to be faster also.
Oh yea, make sure you "end points" and "dual rate" on your radio are set out far enough, That is when you turn your steering the tires turn "out far" enough and both have the "same" turning distance for each side.

73375 RPM Heavy Duty Rod Ends Yellow 4-40 (blue)
73378 RPM Heavy Duty Rod Ends Yellow 4-40 (purple)
73377 RPM Heavy Duty Rod Ends Yellow 4-40 (yellow)
73372 RPM Heavy Duty Rod Ends Yellow 4-40 (black)

Each package contains 12 ball ends, and RPM offers shock shaft bottoms and shock spring cups too - although I'm pretty sure those are just for matching looks and are not actually "beefier" than stock as the ball ends are, someone correct me on that?
