Yea, it comes with the Mr. Voltage pre-installed. Just add foam tire dust and watch it rip up the track.

Hey Phil...just wondering what all these people are talking about...why do we need a new car..I think(well I know) that the TC3 won every major race this year around the world except for the Japan Nats......now people tell me how you can improve on that?
Classic case of corporate posturing to try and make us all look the other way!
You can bet that AE directed Mr. Baker to post on here in an attempt to deflect any curiosity away from their ultra secret new TC4 project.
And besides if Nrctc3 says they are developing a TC4 I believe him. Especially because he ditched his NTC3 in favor of an R-40 and I am sure that AE gives him inside info being the well known driver he is...

I just heard they are pushing back the TC4 to the 5th quarter of next year.

TP :: You need to tell 'Chowder Head' to get back into racing! He is missing out on all the carpet fun.

Like the new AE touring car release, the Cobalt was heavily plugged by BigJim and placed on a high pedestal.........

if AE does release the tc4 anytime soon,it better be faster than the tc3...otherwise there'd a horde of angry fans with no fast car to drive!!!!

all that i can say is WHY?
if AE were to and in their right mind i would guess they would proberly release a car with better/upto date weight distrib. and maybe a little stronger.
i dont think it would be a 'TC4' as such but more like a TC3.5

Jonas Kaerup has hinted that the team will have some special stuff for the upcoming DHI-cup race. What it is, we have to wait and see. A new car wont proberly show up until the worlds and it is more likely that Losi comes with something completly new.

LOL.....no......BigJim is not a source for a new AE touring release but he had many Reedy fans on the edge of their seats for a Cobalt motor.

If you think about it the TC3 was first raced at the 99 Asphalt nats, the year Tosolini won. It came out in October or so. That's more than 4 years ago. And they had taken out the famous "So when's Associated going to come out with a touring car?" ad in what 98? 97? The actual design concept might be 6-7 years old! And they still are right on top, that is incredible.

Thats why I was asking. Its kinda funny that alot of people switch cars alot and they always go back to the TC3.It seems that Cliff Lett should be named designer of the decade.

TC3 is a good car ,But if you look back there was alot new sponsor driver AE pick up compare the teamlosi driver in four years.... So there for ,the more new driver you pick up the better,the better odd chance to win...Barry baker brfore was the yok sponsor .So isn't just the car, it's the driver behind it
Just my 2 cent
