rear hubs and rear control arms for spare parts. I never broke anything in the front.

Just curious to why you switched. I have a tc4 and have a heck of a time with torque steer. The fastest guy at our track drives a jrxs.

My third race I hit the wall hard and broke the caster and steering block. Might want to stock up on those.

I run a TC4 and love it.

You will need castor blocks, and I recommend alloy rear hubs.

For toe blocks you want between 1.5 and 2.5 deg toe in.

0 2 4 or 6 deg hubs are available, I run 4deg and find that is the best one for most situations

Had very good luck using losi xxxs rear hubs they are pretty much a direct fit. and dont break nearly are easy as stock ones,plus you can adjust rear toe by buying ones with built in toe.
