Default Shaft Drive TC

Besides the TC4, what other shaft drive TCs are out there? I'm looking into Shaft drive more now that I realize belts are going to be a pain to run on unprepped.

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

I know that the TC5 is out. But the TC5 is belt drive. Besides, I can pick up a TC4 Team kit for $99. I am looking for a decently competitive shaft drive TC that will spend 70 percent of time bashing and 30 percent of time at the track.

HPI PRO4 Hara, Tamiya EVO5 both are good I really like my Pro4. Shaft drive is still a good option for someone with a choppy driving style.

You cant be competitve if your only going to race 30% of the time..
If you want a basher buy a used anything off e-bay..

If your heart is set on shaft drive, a TC4 team kit for $99.00 is hard to pass up.

www.ampdraw.com also has the Factory Team TC4 for 209.99. other than when AE was selling them for 199.99...it's the best deal out there for a top of the (outdated) line out there

the 99.99 TC4 is very basic.

Yokomo still makes their shaft drive.

do belt drive cars really get trashed up running on unprepped?

Cal, aka bite me! The Pro4 is still in existance as is the Tamiya Evo V. Kyosho Stallion as well as the Yokomo SD. Belts are outstanding because the power out of turns great, but line em up next to nitros on a long track and welllllll....

Sad to say, but I just spanked every nitro car this passed weekend with 19 trn motor. And destroyed them with a 9x1. Nitro is only faster in a few guys hands. Most nitro cars just don't keep up or maybe it's the drivers, just can't keep up with electric around the whole track.
