Bump, anyone? Maybe a website w/ setup sheets for the tc4? I could even use a tc3 setup sheet for vta.

I would just start with a rubber tire setup, and go 1 spring rate softer to start.

Thanks Rob, I guess my dumb question is besides gearing,is there anything else in ones setup that needs to be changed when upgrading to a 21.5 /Lipo combo on a TC4. Are there weight change issues or anything? If I had a good setup when running brushed should I be OK when running 21.5 / LiPo ?

You'll probably need a package of stick on lead to balance the car, but that's about it.
