Droop screws on the TM4 were a major reason for me running the TM4. I use droop regularly on my 8th off-roaders and touring cars. It is a quick adjustment that can balance front and rear grip to your needs. For off-road it has the added benefit of being adjusted to suit bumps and jumps.

"In my opinion droop is one of the more powerful adjustments that we can make to our car. It can dramatically affect the handling of a car with a couple of quick adjustments assuming you have droops screws."

All,

Vendetta Hobbies will start to carry Team C parts. Parts are not listed on the site as of this email (kits are), but you can email them. I also added them to the first page.

Been running my tm4 quite a bit lately at the new local indoor track. Very impressed with the car. But there's one thing that I'm looking to change. The car has an insane amount of steering, on and off power. Anybody have suggestions on how to tune some out? It just seems like the car has a crazy amount of steering travel. Didn't seem bad at first when I was running the wrong tires. Had a bit of push and that actually helped. But now that I'm running tires that grip the track, it can be a handful in the corners.

Track is a fairly small, tight clay track with a decent blue groove. Running bar type tires in super soft or mega soft compounds. Even though the surface is clay, clay compound tires don't seem to work at all.

For the time being, I've turned down the steering epa 15-20% in both directions. This has helped, but I just don't think it's the correct answer to the problem. Also, if I get out of the groove or overshoot a corner a little, it's really difficult to get back on track because of the wider turning radius combined with lack of traction outside of the race line.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Does anyone still run this? Is there anywhere to get parts reliably in the USA? My son wants to try racing and these kits are at least somewhat reasonable for a 4WD buggy currently. I wouldn't mind trying it, but not if I have to order from China and pay a fortune for shipping each time.

There are several around the midwest running these. They are fast and they have a great setup window. With the exception of the shock springs, mine is a box stock V2 and I can tweak on it to get the car to steer from nose to tail fairly quickly. If I want more steering I can get this thing to rotate right at the Nose, If I want it to rotate in the middle of the chassis, just a few tweaks and its a different handling car. itNow to get the rear end to bite in loamy conditions, I am still working on that but Throttle control is always the best method here. Parts can be ordered online.

I still run mine, I am chasing setups but I think its time to stop screwing around with it and start driving it. It is a good car! Plenty fast

I miss mine, that was the best 4wd buggy I have ever owned. Really sensetive to roll center adjustments though.
