She Schuie part# for the ones i have is U1704, they come in a pack of 8 for $6.99.

You can also find them combined with Schuie ballstuds. Those are the more expensive packs ($12.99+), but the studs are metric.

Type U1704 into the small search bar on the left after you click the link.

The sway-bar mounts are different.

The TC3 arms are longer and the inner hinge pin is smaller than the TC4. The TC4 A-arm mounts are wider than the TC3, that's why the arms are shorter. You may run into an issue with the dog bones coming out of the outdrives b/c of this.

Is the TC4 RTR still competitive? I am on a limited budget and I was also thinking of the Hot Bodies Cyclone S, but I don't want to buy a new chassis after it breaks every race day. I will be mainly running in the 17.5 stock class while I learn to drive a 1/10 Touring Car and I will probably move down to 13.5 max car so will the TC4 be ok? 90% of the cars at my local tracks are high end TC5's, Cyclone's, and XRay's which are all belt driven and too expensive for me right now. Thanks for any input...

The TC4 will be fine in Stock (17.5bl/27t) I've had always been at the pointy end of the field against high end TC's. If you're running 17.5 on a very large track you'll run into problems when it comes to gearing, which is one reason why I got a TC5 now.
With torque steer apparently it isn't much of a problem in Super Stock (10.5bl/19t) so a 13.5 won't be as severe but in Mod it becomes a problem.

With the TC4 RTR for Stock, you can just put in a 27t with a different pinion and you'll be able to race Stock, the RTR comes with a 17t motor so it can safely handle brushed Stock and Super Stock Motors.
You should also note that AM radio gear can't handle brushless (I found out the hard way), so you'll have to upgrade your radio gear to use a brushless setup.

I have the same AM XPS2 Radio for my 18T and I have been using brushless just fine. Maybe it just depends on brand of brushless system. By the way...thanks for the info on the TC4. I probably won't be going past 13.5 anyway. It will be my first TC so I don't know if I will like it or be good at it so I didn't want to dump a lot of money into a car at first.

The TC4 is good for stock racing. Super stock might be a little harder with the car's torque steer. But if you'er a novice, amongst novice racers, then it shouldn't matter. Nor should it matter what the other guys are racing.
