Spring kits and various shock oils. A good Rubber setup (blue fronts and green rears) and Time.

For VTA you will need to Mod the motor cam to allow for the bigger pinions but there are some great tutorials just search for pinion mod.

See what everyone else of running for FDR (should be around the 3.8 - 4.2) and Gear, Run, Temp

No need to mod the cam. Just run a 72t (64p) spur, and you have a much wider range. I'm currently at a 3.2 fdr without any mods, other than the chassis ( An AE-suggested mod).

I ran the 17.5t at 45 timing, but it got too hot with not much more speed than N timing.... I did blow the sensor board though running past the six minute mark..... I'll revert back to N timing.....

Just replaced the sensor board and wire, and everything is fine... I guess Novak motors need N timing to be at their best...

Someone looking for a TC4 for VTA? or even that other thing...(?) TC?

I don't know squat from TC4's, but this sure looks like a good deal @ only $150.00 shipped, with what's on it -

TEAM ASSOCIATED TC4 WITH A TON OF FACTORY TEAM PARTS

Picking up a TC4 Club Racer later this week for some parking lot racing.

Going to run a Tekin RS, Trinity D3.5 17.5T, Savox 1257TG, and Trakpower Shorty 4400 50C 2S LiPo.

If I were to mount the ESC on the battery side (IDGAF about ROAR legality) would I want to run battery forward or rearward?

I think running your Shorty pack forward is best for front bite, and also avoids damaging the esc in a crash....

Guess I'll start with battery forward. Will allow me to get super short motor and battery wires which is an added plus.

Not sure why you want to run it on the batt side but if you are starved for room with a large receiver like the futaba I turned mine on its side and tucked it under the top place near the drive shaft (but I have the FT TC4) then the ESC goes beside it .

I have mine mounted traditionally, on the motor side. I also run the AE fan kit, so that doesn't help with space either. It's tight, but with some creativity and patience, it fits no problem. I'll try to post a pic in a while.

I broke the steering link / lower servo saver and can't find any info on where to set it. I have it out 3/4 of a turn from full, is that too tight?

I still clip a pipe now & then trying to cut it as close as possible. Ran it today (TQ, finished 2nd) it felt good. I may go to 1/2 turn.

+2.
I also run a good quality servo, so that helps take some of the hits that may happen.

I also run a wide parma bumper to protect my steering system better than the stock bumper.... My body gets most of the damage not my servo......
