Wouldn't happen to have a good setup for either foams on indoor asphalt or even rubbers? How about your Reedy Race setup?

Hope to have that new FT soon! Got two pre-ordered from separate places, see who gets them first


Also something I posted on the TC4 forum that hasn't got answered yet about the Team car I'm running now:

1) How far should the shocks extend when fully compressed? Mine are extending equally but they extend all the way out. I thought they were only supposed to extend out a little bit?

2) One-Ways; What's everyones thought on Foam/High-Bite Asphalt (Fairly tight track but Stock Motor) running a one-way? I've also heard you can just put the one-way bearing in the rear of the car to eliminate some of the classic issues with braking etc? Anyone ever heard of this?

Nitro boy....


I will be posting setups soon to the site ... I want to run a few more times.. But i do know ae will be either posting starting setups in with the kits or on the web page... I know the carpet one is good



AS for the shocks.. Mine extend all the way out and are equal.. But when i say all the way out not with super hard rebound that has alot of air in the shocks... What we found at the reedy race that made the shocks very easy to build was a yokomo cap and bladder.. they were perfect everytime.. I try to make the shocks feel as close as you can.. if not this can cause a tweak...

Anytime i run foams. I run no oneways.. I think you can just as fast without them plus i use good amount of brakes, so i do not like the feel of a one-way.. Matter of fact i can not remember the last time we have run a one-way here in the states.... As for the rear ? I have never heard of that or tried it ..

Thanks for the QUICK reply!! I use the Yokomo caps or a set of team caps that I had drilled/tapped both work great. Just wasn't sure if they should extend that far, always bleed the air out though

Good Luck at any upcoming events! Show everyone what that FT car is all about!

Thanks Again!

When using the Yok caps and bladders do you remove the volume compensating foam from the shock or leave it in?

Mike, when is the FT stuff gonna be release? Are they going to sell a conversion kit to make an old TC4 into a FT TC4?

Are going to the Gate on Saturday to practice? If so, maybe I'll stop by to spectate and check out the new car.
