+++ WOW....You won't regret it!!!!! Ran mine tonight for the first time. Had some teething problems, I need to do some diff and shock tuniing. Drove great in the main though. I was under geared. Motor temp 120*LOL!!!!!Picking up pinions tomorrow. 60T 48p spur 35T pinion. I also think I'm going to switch to the T6 shocks. First time I ran 4* caster blocks seems easier to drive. Can't wait for the next session!!!!

Just thought I would stop in and see what was happening in the forum. Very exciting to see all of the participation and help with the DC4 kit. Thanks to all of you!!

I recently bought one that was for sale here on RCTech. Haven't received it yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it compares to my plastic chassis TC4.

Default DC4 LE

Have put together two of these kits now and am very pleased with the outcome. The difference in the two cars are, one uses the DD towers and the other uses the Associated towers and upper link mounts modified as the manual. I use the Spec R shocks over the associated shocks. Had springs from running R1 so decided to try them over stock. Had two experts drive the cars and they were impressed except for the ball diff. To quick to unload in corners. A group of us are trying to come up with a gear diff solution for the rear. Could improve the performance even more. Nice kit - fun to drive - very planted.

I believe I was the only one so far to successfully get a gear diff into one of these but the the only problem is you cant find the top photon m pro gear diffs anymore . that is the gear diff I modified to fit. but don't ever doubt a ball diff. they have been around for many years simply because they actually work and if you feel it unloads to fast run it tighter

It seems that I have DC4 chassis #13! I'll be building it up for USGT for now with an eye on 17.5 TC when my skills improve.

Dumper,
Can you provide a good baseline setup for the DC4?

Thank you, Jeff. I know Dumper has been very busy, so I haven't been hassling him. I have been working on the chassis this weekend and hope to have it at the track in two weeks. I LOVE the fact that USGT gives you SOOOO many body options.
