Default Team Associated TC4

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

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)

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Will there be a Factory Team version TC4?
Yes, but not for a year or so.
