Big_G, I've thought about it. I had considered some other things too for a Pro 4 LTS chassis

Ben- Who do you think will be first out with a CF conversion for the TC4?

Well I did some testing last night at my local club and I definately noticed a difference in the chassis. The first heat the car was rolling around the corners and scrubbing off corner speed, all I did was to stand up all four shocks 1 hole and it stopped the rolling and the cornering speed was brilliant, extremely quick change of direction and a very good handling car. The side braces did their job and have held up fine, no bashed electronics or batteries flying out all over the place

If anyone wants my setup then I can post it here, it's for foam tyres on a fairly small twisty carpet track.

First night out with the kit on the car and words cannot describe how impressed I am. The biggest difference I noticed between the stock chassis plate and the PRP kit "with the same identical setup" was that the PRP kit did not bleed speed in a full punch sweeper and an esse section we have at our carpet track. You can listen to the rpm of the motor and yesterday with the stock kit you could hear the motor bogg mid corner to exit but with the PRP kit the motor only slightly changed song. It was definitely carrying more corner speed. I am sure track conditions and learning the layout helped but I was able to knock off 4 tenths of a second off my best lap time compared to yesterday. That is huge in stock!!! This was done with my teammate Kevin Kane's setup he posted with only a few minor changes to obtain a little more grip as our track is new.

Thanks Ben!!!!!!!

Hey Gary, I've thought about it, but I would need to borrow a rolling chassis for about a month so I can really stare at it non stop for a couple hundred hours to allow all possible ideas to develop

The funny thing is, it looks like all of the current carbon chassis kits already are the TC4. Unless the "4" has different holes for the motor mount/ pivot blocks, etc... When does it come out?

On associated sites it says that the Tc3 and the tc4 chassis are NOT interchangable....But Im not sure what the differences are other than the way the rear input shaft support bearing is held in place.

yeah dude i purchased from them and used the chassis already. no problems.

don't go mentioning anything remotely negative on rctech though about the product as the forum visitors will jump all over you as i experienced in my PRP post here!

ps; i got every PRP option for the pro4 available and happy with it, but find some responses from forum members i recieved regarding a few things.....rather close minded

pps; ALLTHAT ASIDE .....YOU WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH IT. you will have to re-adjust your settings though due to the stiffness
