see ya at SoCal soon... I couldn't get off work in time yesterday...
Remember about a week ago, I posted that I had given my parts list to Mas, and said we might have parts at SoCal in the coming week? Well, we got them... Apperently, we had Triangle, Circle, Square, and three different X blocks. The X blocks were, 2, 2.5, and the original 3. When I showed up on Saturday morning, we had already sold out of the 2.5 X block. So hopefully, we should have more in stock this coming week...

I did not ask Tony about the sway bars, I figure: Everyone and their mother has been asking the same things, so why pester the poor guy even more? hahaha.

Chad told me that the sway bars are almost the same. The only difference, is that for the TC4, you have to cut the bars shorter. I thought, that was some valuable information.


Side Note: Mas talked with Kurt lastnight about the outter hingepins being bent upon time of purchase. He said that they were from a bad batch of hingepins, and that this upcoming batch should be error free...


Losi xxxs, are you using the Factory Team TC3 hingepins on the outter locations?(I thought about installing the Factory Team hingepins fromt the TC3) I have not had a chance to measure, but I am thinking that the TC4 has a slightly larger pin diameter... Using the stock hingepins, I don't have much play at all...

Rear castor clocks?? One thing I did notice is that my front ones have alot of play for a brand new car. What is actually happening is that the hinge pin is tilting back and forth inside the A-arm where the small .050 retaining screw is. Anyone else's car do this? Was just wondering if maybe I got some that were a few thousands too small (diameter). No screws or ball studs are loose, it's actually the pin moving like a see-saw.

i personally thought the arms had some play in them sliding on the pins...not quite enough shimming??

also, ive seen two built now where the batwings, where the camber links mount, when you tighten the ball studs, you cant tighten them, but instead 'snug' them, as the batwing cracks when you tighten them...

Sposed to get my TC4 last Friday but due to Associated only sending a limited number over we decided not to reserve any for our staff and instead send them all out to the UK stores we supply

Gotta wait another week or so for the next batch.

Still better late than never....


Just wondering.....does the blue TC3 alloy screw set fit? I presume it mostly will even if there are a few out

To answer some questions:

Yes, the TC3 caster blocks will fit the TC4....only difference is the TC4 are now symmetrical on BOTH sides of the block, whereas the TC3 were not.

Bubbles: ask away, dood. That's what I'm here for!!!! On a side note to the swaybars; you should NOT have to shorten them. If Chad is, he is doing that for who-knows what reason.

I have the same problem with mine. Lots of play in those locations. I hope Ae will tighten up the tolerances. Otherwise it's a great car.
