get the TC3 O conversion... i can try and find a link for it...

there ya go. The TC3 and TC4 have virtually the same parts, and I believe this kit may work for it. I would email them and check though...

here is the link to the kit:
Conversion Kit It;s is actually for TC3 so you will have to some modification the TC4 chassis to make it work, nothing to major though. YOur best bet is try to find a TC3 roller and add this kit then you have no mods to make. I have seen the TC4 with this kit, and with a little modification it looks like it workes well. Good Luck with this, keep up updated on the progress.

I currently race a XXX-4 and want to move to something better. I see the Rally conversion kit but the track I run on has a lot of jumps and I am concerned about the rally kit having the travel needed to compete. The RC Product Designs looks like a complete rebuild for offroad competition.

HELP

you're not going to find much better than the xxx-4.

You have 4 options - Pick up an old xx-4 off ebay and get the x-5 conversion
- buy a new or used BJ4
- get the re-released xx4 next month
- convert your xxx-4 to a graphite plus if it already isn't

A brick.

ANY of these would be better than a XXX-4 on anything rougher than a sheet of glass.

There are a few options out there other than the xxx4, if you want a true conversion for a TC3/4 the only one I know of is RC Product Designs. I've seen several of these cars first hand, and they have come a long way since the first models. When they get the carbon fiber chassis finished it'll be even better.

I have a slightly used ZX5, I'll sell you for cheap. I bought it and 4wd never took off at my local track. It only has 2 race days on it and is in great condition. I love the car but there is just no one to race against.

Recently overheard at Serzoni's local track...
"Dude! Can I drive your brick?? That thing looks REALLY PLANTED!"
