Finally got around to buffing up my plates and fitting the ceramic balls, woooo smooth, what a difference Even my well seasoned TC4 mate was impressed. You were spot on Dave, thank you kindly

Hi everybody, I also run tc4s and switched all my front cvds for losi jrxs typeR lcds, and never broke anymore drivetrain parts again! I did have to dremel the castor blocks a bit, but it was worth the effort: no more chatting , tighter steering radius, more traction, and I do not have to wait for the car to straighten up before accelerating etc...It seems that everybody uses lcds in the front now: tcx, losi, awesomatix etc....

Hey guys. I'm doing a big tune up on my car at the moment. I have most the rear end taken apart to do a number of fixes. Also redoing my shocks. Just figured while I'm in doing stuff, I might as well do it all. Looking for any extra performace. Last club race, my car was rediculously loud. I got some new gears along with my parts in the mail yesterday. im hoping that will take care of it. What else can I look at? I've never touched the bearings in my hubs. Should I clean them? Just rotating my wheels feels more difficult than it should be. I'll try sanding my rear diff as described and maybe clean the diff balls. What else can I do to increase efficency? What other maintenence should I do? Thanks! Dan.

I never buff, or go any higher than 600 grit when using sandpaper. You want the diff balls to get as much grip, without slipping. Sanding the D-pates will give the diff added grip.

Put my car back together tonight. Its handling 300% better, and it actually sounds good! And when I let off full throttle, the wheels keep spinning 4 times as long as they were. Needless to say its doing a lot better.

Would the cvd's of a TC5 work in a tc4? I was going to try it out but just wonder has anyone else done this to replace the stock dogbones of a TC4 to give it all the turning ability.

.....TiR TC-3 CVD's is what i'd bought a decade ago......these are nothing too special (except for their price tag). The same angle (turning circle wise) was acheived. There has to be a set of Losi parts to build up a pair of LCD's someware . Anyways , good luck on a never ending era/journey with the
TC-4.

I hate to bump up this old thread but I really need help here. I have a fully built and customized TC4 with a carbon chassis and a cracked aluminum motor mount. I currently have it sent off to a guy that has a 3d printer and he's going to try and create a motor mount for me and I'm also searching for a new one; obviously to no avail.

What other options do I have to install a motor mount on my chassis? Does anyone know where I can locate one? Any help is appreciated.

You can try to weld it carefully unless it's 7075 , but another motor mount will be hard to find without buying a whole car.....

Perfect replacement.

Crap, out of stock as well. Oh well, maybe they'll make more.
