Mine is just the stock mount cut down . The fin part of the cam clamp cut off and the long leg of the lower mount cut to about 5/8 " long .

Thanks,
Scott

Tamiya shocks are just the best... I think the trf 42102 shocks are also cheap...

I have an IRS TC3 graphite conversion car and a Team TC4. I measured across the motor cut out on both and they are the same 7/8 of an inch. IRS still lists the TC3 motor mount in there clear out items ($28.00). I think with a little work it would probably fit???? The TC3 mount also has retainer for the rear drive shaft bearing.
Maybe if I'm bored this weekend I can take a closer look. But Ray K's looks like a good option.

Thanks, Bert. Looking at the TC6.1 shocks, it seems they would be about $100 for a set. Not excited about doing that on a VTA or USGT car.

By far the Tamiya shocks are the best choice ,but the price is out of line to put them on a $100 car . I ran the SpecR R1 metal shocks on mine . They are offered with plastic bodies or metal .They are copy of the Tamiya shock . Not the same quality but work just fine . Price $32 bucks , the plastic ones are $27

If you go to the Team Associated site, there you will find Darkside's TC4 VTA setup from the recent Southern Nationals.

I too own a TC4 Club Racer; the stock composite shocks continually leak. (Tried tightening the top cap, but felt securely in place.) It's still out the box new and I have been considering aftermarket threaded body aluminium shocks.

Has anyone had any experience with the FT Anodized Threaded Shock Kit? Trying to keep all upgrades on the car by Team Associated.

Thanks in advance.

There good shocks, and if you upgrade them with 31120 & 31121 you will have awesome shocks

I have these in my FTTC4 and they are great. I rebuilt them at the begining of last season with all new orings and the shocks are still super smooth and do not leak. Watch the caps. Or just get the bleeder caps and never worry again.

Thanks for the advice!

I'll be looking to order a set soon. Will build with stock O-rings and caps and see how it goes.
