And I thought that there was no room on the Cuda for electronics.

it was before the losi xx-4. but he was at losi at the time. but not long after he ran the predator........project "glitch" was born. so i'm waiting on another Roswell. . i personally think the new TC will have more roll options like vertical camber links at the chassis. you may be able to raise and lower the a-arm mounts too. and i'm sure they'll find some kind of way to further reduce drive-line drag.

the only change i could see them making is to use the nitro suspension on a tc3 electric tub.....

it has been made as a conversion already from someone else...

but as they said in a few threds up if it aint broke....dont fix it
Because if they don't sell, they won't live. All the manufacturers have released new cars, that easily keeps up with the TC3. They don't sell as much TC3's now, most people fancy buying the newest car, so they HAVE to release a new car if they want to SELL cars, which is what they're here for.

Besides, the nitro suspension is good for nitro, NOT for electrics. Why do you think X-Ray, Corally, Schumacher have left the pivot ball system for the C-Hub system ?

Default nitro suspension

i ran the nitro suspension in electric,it doesnt work .totally indestructable but way too heavy especially in stock.the bumper alone is double the weight of the electric one.sounds good on paper but not on the track.

IF they come out with a tc4, it will most likely be the same layout as the tc3, but with a redesigned chassis, drivetrain, and suspension to compete even better than the tc3. and thats if it isn't just a new chassis.

The "TC4" will probably look just like a Pro 4/MR-4TC SD/Evo IIII

It'll just have all the "fixes" ahead of time...and *unfortuenetly* one of those fother-mucking one-ways

Wheres my royalties Associated?.....I still haven't got my check from Losi when I said their belt system sucked and they needed to get rid of the severe kinks....and what did they do?

This is a personal chassis, we already saw it on a post like one month ago. It's got nothing to do with ae and I don't think they'll do something like that.

Or because all the fwd's have the engine mounted sideways? The difference is in the details, suspension, equipment etc...
Depends on imagination.... check this
