My apologies for the false info, we will have to inform TeamC of the typo so they can fix it for the next batch.
I have a question though. Did you get any stickers in your kit? I had none.
No problem about the ratio info. Will a 42t pinion fit? It may be too small. BTW: I did not get any stickers with my kit. Being a painter, I avoid stickers.

Haha. :-)
Right now I have 96/42 installed no problem at all. There's plenty of room to put bigger pinions too.

I feel that's the reason why I had to increase my right EPA compared to my left to obtain an equal steering throw left and right...
So far I have found the kit build to be very smooth. No real issues ( I did get a package of screws for the battery strap that were to short).

I plan on spacing the servo as far forward as I can to also reduce the angle of the steering rod. A longer ball stud may also be needed to get the angle correct. I will space the ball stud on the steering rack up, so the rod is more level with the chassis.

Would like to see some pictures of the car, if possible.:just curious haha.
And could you something about the quality of the car. How was the built of the car.
Are you going to compete in a race event soon?? Im very curious how the car holds its ground compared to other TC's.

Thanx..

If you do a Google search for "Team C tc10" you can find plenty of pictures of the chassis. My local track owner was shocked at how close it was to an Xray T4.
As for the build, everything fit very nicely. My only issue being the limited amount of space for gearing selection. (nothing a Dremel can't fix)
I am planning on running my car in the USGT class at the USVTA National races at Summit Raceway in Fort Wayne, IN and The Track in Winthrop Harbor. Ill.
As for how it will compare...I believe it comes down to the "Nut behind the Wheel"...A great driver with an average car will almost always beat a average driver with a great car.

Thanx for the reply. did a search and the car is also available here in Europe. Was shocked about the price 399 that's about the same price you'll have to pay for an XrayT4. Fortunally I still have some time untill the new outdoor season start and make up my mind about any new TC

Here in the USA, the street price is $410 (approx. 300 euros). That is about $100 (70 euros) less than an Xray T4 2014. I happened to get the "Good Guy/Team Driver" price from my local hobby shop. I can't say what I paid, but it saved me enough to pay for a new servo and a set of tires.

Well I'm not a Team Driver so I'll have to pay the full price. But hey... no sweat, thats just the way things are For the same price I can buy also a S411, TC6.2 etc. and these are all respected brands with a lot of experience in the TC world. So I've to think really hard about this hahaha. Anyway The chassis does look great haha!!!!

Good luck with the chassis!!! Keep the posts on this thread alive

I got the Team Driver price because I am the painter for my LHS. I currently have a TC5, TC6 and an Xray T3 2012. I was just looking for a project/X-mas present for myself.

Well you got yourself a great xmas present hahaha!!! and a cool project too!!
In an earlier reply you mentioned "My local track owner was shocked at how close it was to an Xray T4."

Did you mean the looks of the TC10 compared to the T4 or the performance of the TC10!!

I think some guys have been doing really good in Asia. Not sure what the plans are in the USA.
I race at a club level :-)
