Don't they have to release a TC4 now? I mean there's the B4, T4, 10L4, the 12L4, If they don't put it out soon they'll have dischord within their nomenclature!!!! Nobody wants that.

Tony I know that you of all people couldn't stand to see such incongruity within AE's products' identities!

So what will they do about the BFT? BFT4?

Please AE, tell me you won't make a 12L4 RTR...please!

I'd love to see an updated TC4, not that the TC3 cant win, but she is long in the tooth, and a few changes (namely the steering rack must go). Its only logical since the introduction of the MGT, B4, T4 and Nitro FT TC3 have been released the TC3 is next on the list to receive a massage treatment. The only bad thing for most racers is that if indeed a TC4 came out by the end of the year, the FT version will be another 8-12 months behind.

he works in the R AND D DEPARTMENT it's rather difficult for a company to develop a new car when their research and delopment department knows nothing of the project.

Ironic isnt' it?

i dont think that it has to do with the 4 name but the car is over four years old and no matter how good it is technology gets old and associated as smart as they are wont fall behind because all the other manufactures are going to catch up and they would want to be ahead of everyone. and be one step ahead and come out with a new car nothing wrong with the old car
but like full scale racing you can only race a car for so long till it becomes obsilete and associated would much rather retire a car at the top of career then when it starts getting whooped!

I would be willing to bet there is a new car coming out. Look at all the mods people have to do to their tc3's to get them FAST. They have to mill the chassis to move the batteries close to the centerline, they are using losi suspension parts. And the car still has a problem with the chassis not being totally flat AND the motor area warping because of heat. Something tells me AE will fix the problems (flat chassis, warping) and make the improvements (move batteries in, make rear hubs have a vertical camber link). They may even make room to use the Nitro TC3 rack assembly. That is what I'd guess AE would do for a new car.

Fortunately for Hector (speedxl) and I, our cars already have all those improvements and none of those problems without modification. Warpspeed rocks!
