I bought a set of tc4 arms locally thinking they fit but the hinges fit loose. If I get the tc4 arms, hinges and the tc4 ft allow hinge/arm holder fit?

What are the major difference between them two and will my tc6 axles and dog bones bolt up if I want to swap to them? Was thinking about ordering a set instead of the allow ones and use regular 4mm hexes and wheel nuts.

I posted the above under tc3 as well. Thanks
You can use TC4 arms on a TC3 but you have to use TC4 hinge pins and you have to drill out the TC3 arm mounts for the thicker TC4 hinge pins, you will also need to shorten the TC4 hinge pins. You cant use TC4 arm mounts because they dont fit the TC3 chassis.

TC6 axles will not fit the TC3 or 4. But the NTC3 axles will fit and are a great upgrade

Does anyone know where I could find a 48p spur gear 64t? I want to run close to a 4.00fdr
And a 64t spur gear with a 40t pinion gear would get me right at 4.00fdr.

Nobody makes a 64t 48p spur gear... 60t spur gear is the right choice...

Hey guys, does anyone still run the graphite ft tc4? I'm gonna be making new graphite shock towers and was wondering if anybody had used them before? If so, what improvements could be made to them for strength, handling, and tuneability if any?

Default Servo Recommendation

I just picked up a gently used TC4 roller. I plan on setting it up for VTA club racing. I am looking for some servo recommendations. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Brian S. and I went to Summit RC Raceway in Fort Wayne, Indiana last night for their Winterfest VTA Race. It was awesome! 4 heats of VTA cars! Anyway, I just wanted to post that Brian took 1st place with his trusty old TC4. Proving once again that the TC4 is an excellent VTA platform!

I run a TC3, and have parts for them. But, if I was starting from scratch, I'd choose a TC4 especially since its been re-released and parts are easy to get.
