The c/f parts are lighter in color and are more grey. They have visibly more fibers in them.

Which TC4 setup sheet from the Assoc site do you use for VTA there is more than one.
I found a Barry Baker setup for the TC3 on that site that I use for outdoor asphalt VTA and the car is "DIALED" !!!! I recently acquired a FTTC4 like new and I also have a carbon tub TC4 and I'm not sure which to try first. I'm going to start the season with the TC3 as it was very competitive last year. I was thinking of trying the TC3 set up on the TC4 as some where to start. Thanks for any suggestions.

Ordered a TC4 Club and Speed Passion 17.5T for some future spec racing. I was thinking of getting an Ofna JL10e, but local parts availability for the AE made it a easier choice.

Are they spacers available to bump from 190mm to 200mm? I have a 190mm and 200mm body, and would like to flip back and forth with the HPI tires I already have.

I have a set of mounted HPI's 4702 that I presume will make the car 190mm.

Use a drill bit the size of the bushing and carefully drill out the teardrop, Key word "Carefully", best if you have access to a drill press. Don't go for the full size on one pass, Use larger drill bits until it fits, Good luck!!! Yes it is doable!!!!

Is there a way to change the width of the car by shimming? I have both 190mm and 200mm bodies and would like to run both.

Default TC4 + Solid Front Axel = chatter?

So I decided to swap out the front TC4 diff and put in a solid axel for the front. With the Xrays, you can get the ECS to minimize the chatter. How do you address this with the TC4?

To remedy the front chatter , I have been using the Losi lcd's (#losa3344), but it requires some dremeling of the caster blocks, or you can instead use losi caster blocks....

By the way, it's been six years and no sign of excessive wear yet!

Thats good to hear bertrand, I read some of your olds posts about the LCD's, I have a set waiting to go on the car with losi carriers but the chassis is tweaked to hell so until I move my ass and make a chassis the car is on holiday
