I guess, it is official now that the TC4 will hit the hobbyshops this month.

Looks very interesting... that's for sure...

Chazz 09-01-2004 10:12 AM

I must say it does look like a tc3 with a cgm chassis on it and the weaker parts like the wishbone and shock towers are thicker (think i'll stick with my tc3 at the moment)

Factory Team
 
Did they announce yet when the FT kit will come out? Hopefully around Xmas.

StephenSobottka 09-01-2004 11:11 AM

I'm getting the team version right away. I'll update when I can as soon as the other parts are released.

Brian Anthony 09-01-2004 01:09 PM

I went to my hobby shop today and they said that the distributor said they the hobby shops should get them in Oct. as they won't get them till the end of sept. if all goes smoothly.

im not complaining or anything but it looks like the new car might be a little on the heavy side for club racing. The thicker arms and huge motor mount. I wonder how it compares to the tc3 and others in weight.

Chris Reilly 09-01-2004 02:54 PM

How can you be concerned about the weight ? There is far less material in the make up of the chassis. This car is going to be awesome like the rest of there line up. My TC3 needs 8 x1/4 ounce pieces of weight to make it to the minimum weight requirement as it is. This will end up being the car you have all been waiting for. Sell your CGM and get the real deal. All the complaints have been adressed in the new TC4. This kit is mostly brand new parts. Hurry and put your order in while supplies last. It' going to sell fast.

TC4
 
There not going to be able to keep up with supply and demand, but i hope they keep up with parts. That has always been one of there strong points.

The Black Kat 09-01-2004 09:33 PM

I'm contemplating getting the parts nessesary for the conversion...

I hope Associated releases a conversion kit for less than what it'd cost to get the parts seprately....

Arms
Knuckles
Hingepins/Braces/Castor Spacers
Shock Towers
Steering System
Rear Uprights
Rear Camber Link mount
New Bearings/Screws if applicable
$100+ right there

I don't nessesarily need the new chassis...could just mill out the existing motor mount and bolt in the one from the IRS chassis but if Associated makes a true conversion I'd think they'd include a chassis :nod:
