I run BL 3.5t at FBF (200ft X 95ft)... I need more practice to drive superfast, but in the right hands, the car is very capable , with no foreseable breakdowns !!!!!

Thx
If i remember correctly...

The front circle mount is slightly wider than the rear square for hole position...

circle - circle in the rear will give you zero toe at that width...
square - square will also give zero rear toe at the given hole width...

the X mounts are thicker to push the material closer to the rear lip of the chassis as a "bumper" of sorts but if you have some tools you can probably machine or sand down one of 2 X mounts and do X - X combinations which will give you zero degrees rear toe at the 2.0 width, 2.5 width, and the widest 3.0 width...

hope this helps...

So I picked up a used Team kit to get me by until outdoor offroad season. Will be club racing with 17.5 blinky mode with rubberz. How does kit setup work on indoor med to low bite? Any tips and tricks I should know when I go through the chassis?

Lightweight EVERYTHING!!!! 230gram or less lipo pack to keep the car under 1380grams, and use chassis rake to stop traction rolling !

Anyone switch to carbon parts on their team tub cars? Any benefits to handling while lightening the tc4 itself?

What parts from the TC4 can be used on the TC3?

Arms, hubs, knuckles, shafts?

What about bulkheads and shocktowers?

yes to all except: shocktowers needs the supports too, the shaft has thinner cross pins, so you need the cups too (I never tried to swap myself thought)

you can use the 4 chassis braces too, it puts the links onto different set-up holes

Happy new year to all.

TC3 and TC4 use different sized hinge pins so its not yes to all ... it can be done but not a direct swap.

The cva shafts are a direct swap.
