3. Amain, Tower, any of the big names. Though I can only talk for rubber, Idk about foams. Plus I get most my tires at my lhs.
4. Really depends on the tracks you go to. I've found that TakeOff CS27s are among the best for me. It may be different for you.
Hope that helps.
Thanks

[QUOTE=Gyr0;8213562]What do you guys run in the diffs? As in, I have a one-way, a ball diff, and a solid axle. Should I run the ball diff in front and the one way in the back? WHat do you guys do? thanks[QUOTE]

Run the solid axle in the front when using rubber tires, you will never get the car to flip fast enough with a diff, Dave W posted a good hop up on making a slipper spool which will work good as well. If your running foams then you can use a diff as you will have gobs of steering and traction. On a small tight track leave the one way at home, it is better suited for a long flowing track as they don't react very well to heavy braking.

No, Either PRS, Kimbrough, or Robinson racing spur gears will work with the TC4

1. Any up grades recommended ?

4. Recommended tires for asphalt and carpet ?

thanks
1. A good bumper and steel diffs, Thats pretty much it. You will wear more parts out with a good bumper than you will break, I guarantee it. If anything pick up an extra steering rack or two, it will be the most fragile bit when you have a good bumper, like the Parma.

2. The factory battery strap works great.

3.RcBoyz or your local hobby shop.

4. Sweeps, they make many compounds for all different onroad racing applications. I don't run foams can't help much there.

Personally, nothing slower than .10 transit speed and TQ needs to be over 100 with metal gears. The rest is your choice. I just picked up some Savox servos... so far i like them a lot.

just wanted to say im running a 76 tooth spur gear out of a traxxas rustler. so what ever will bolt in will work as long as it has the same gear pitch as the pinion.

Now I need to move the rear body mounts in some ( closer together ) They are about 4 1/4 inches apart now.

Suggestions ?

1- Unscrew your body posts, and dremel off the notch on each

B) Screw it back into the top hole of your shocks (if you need them even closer)

Probably not the best of ideas, just brainstorming.

Thinking about getting a piece of 1/2" aluminum angle. Drilling it to fit the two most inner shock mount holes and drilling it for aftermarket body mount posts....

thinking out loud here....
