I'll try again
Im putting my Factory team tc4 back in service for onroad parking lot modified racing
currently I have a 8.5 motor in it and have down to a 5.5 and upwards to a 13.5
do you guys that have experience with this car, take out the center spline or put the X shaped one in it?
how are yall setting up diffs front and rear?
any pave or cement parking lot setups?
tires? i know fall is upon us soon so I'll have to keep that in mind!

The TC6.1 axles are metric, so you'd have to change the steering hub or bearings. With the inserts used on the TC6.1 front uprights, it might not be as difficult as some other projects. If you know someone with a TC6.1 or TC6.2, you could get them to pull the outer hinge pin and test fit it. I don't know about the length of the shaft when compared to the TC4.

I own a TC4 and a TC6, I'll take a look when I get home.

Upon checking on my two cars, the TC5/6 caster block pin is considerably larger than the TC4, meaning that in order to fit the TC6 caster block into the TC4 arm the arm would need to be drilled out. As far as I can see, the TC6 steering block will fit in the TC4 caster block, but that would probably require drilling out the caster block to fit the 3mm size hardware that threads into the steering block. This also has the problem of the arm on the TC6 steering block being MUCH longer than the TC4 arm, changing your steering throw needs considerably. You can remedy this by drilling your own holes or not running that much steering throw, but neither is optimal.

I think if there is a metric car you would steal hardware from to run on a TC4 to get Cardan Joints, you could pull it off with a TC6, but it wont be as easy as you think. Fastest way is probably to just put the TC6 steering block in the TC4 caster block, fit the hardware, and live with the change in steering geometry.

@ boudin i switched over to a ball diff in the front in both my cars. They don't have quite the pull out of the corners but they are easier on parts and can be found easily. I personally have begun to really prefer them I can hold tighter lines and don't have any noticeable chatter. They just require a little extra maintenance

I have a set, built but otherwise new and unused. Postage would be from the UK but I am open to offers on them (PM ME) as they are just sitting in my TC4 spares box doing nothing just now.

I can't honestly say that I have ever run a car with a ball diff in the front that was faster for it when racing rubber tire. Also, the front end is still chattering, you just can't hear it.

Team AE consistently lets us down when it comes to universal joints.

Looking for a setup for tc4 club tub racing vta 21.5 motor rubber tire on a medium size high grip recently resealed asphalt track outdoors. I have the stock spool up front.

@desert rat. I've always liked having a diff in the front. I've always raced on small tight tracks and I've felt I can dive in to a corner harder and hold a tighter line with the ball diff I may lack a little acceleration coming out of the corner but it's never hampered me. As far as chatter I know they do just not nearly as bad as with a spool.

I also race on a small indoor track and I would echo what gooba has said. The only challenge is setting up the car to not slip the front diff/inside tire coming out of corners. What little bit I may lose coming out of corners I'm usually able to make up going into the corners, so I don't feel it hurts my lap times.
