Cool

Also Saxo, remember to take off the excess shrink wrap hanging past the LCD pins with a sharp blade: it will make the LCD alot looser(efficient), and will fit better in the hole. At full lock, you should still be able to see some space between the LCD and the caster block.... Send us a picture when you're done... My phone can't upload pictures.....

I just picked up a used TC4 Club Racer. Does anybody know what comes in the original packaging as far as manuals and tools? Just wanted to find out if I'm missing anything important.

Hey guys, i'm new to rctech, and was wondering if anybody had or knows anyone that has/selling 3racing parts for the team associated tc4? I'm looking around for the graphite towers with the aluminum mounts. Or even just the aluminum mounts. :/

you could go with these guys,

Hi, I am looking at getting a new TC4, either the RTR or the club version. Aside from the supplied parts on the RTR (body, motor, radio, esc) does anyone know if the car itself has any differences? I.e, is the quality/driveability better on the club version, or simply the same car...?

Just wondering if a factory team graphite tc4(flat plate chassis)is still a competitive platform for VTA on asphalt?Or is it past it's prime.

For 13.5 look for a belt drive chassis like the TC5 ...

I prefer the shaft driven cars over the belts for low power motors 17.5, 21.5 and 25.5 VTA but once you get up in power the belts are better as less torque steering.

Default Right wheels?

So for standard 190mm body wheels 0* offset and VTA 3* fronts and 6* rears? Or am I wrong about everything?

Make sure you add the Rc crew chief software to your stable. It will show you the path to success even with the older tc3/tc4 chassis....

@Marcthequad - I race VTA in the Dallas area and we have to use 200mm VTA approved bodies. I would assume the rules are the same where you are, but I may be wrong.
