That is only Craigs rain chassis. It has alot more flex than the standard chassis for the slippery conditions.

Hmm, are you sure that is Drescher's car? I have seen his car alot and he has always stuck to the AE graphite chassis plus AE shocks.
Anyway, that isnt the 'TC3.5' its a TC3 with the IRS chassis and TRF shocks. As it was wet the IRS chassis was a good choice due to its superb flex ability

Please explain what is different on that to a standard milled out TC3? (not including TRF shocks)

Default TC3,5

X2,

What was inside of that cannister: the last novak esc and the receiver (due to the rain in the Euros).
In fact this was one of the cars tested under rain, but not the race version. As you said "a good choice due to its superb flex ability".

Barry Baker let me take all the pictures, so there was no TC4

The worlds are like in 2 months. Dont you guys think they will have a new car? And that they will need a part number so they can race it?????? I don't think they let them run "stealth" cars like they did 10 or 15 years ago....cars that won't be built.

Craig Drescher has been running one of the pre production GTX speedos since he signed up with Novak some months ago so there will no doubt be one in that cannister.

Now look back to the pic of Jonas winning car. In fact look at the speedo on the TC3 next to it. Isn't that another GTX ?

The Associated boys are certainly staying tight lipped about what they will be running at the Worlds in a couple of months. But what will they all be running later this week in Florida.

Should be interesting.

Really....call your LHS have them check Horizion or GP for the listing of the TC4....and while your at it have them look up the XXXS pro2 sport......what ever that is. This is just what I was told from my LHS owner. If there is a new TC4 and they would want to race it at the worlds wouldnt they need to get it out in time to get enough sold so it would be legal to race at the worlds?

RC 4-WD On-Road Car.1:10 scale. For 2-function radio control. Four-wheel drive competition touring car chassis with belt drive system, 2 ball differentials, oil-filled shock absorbers, upgrade components. pre-assembled, incl. SX9 speed control.

Product information
Based on the already highly successful TC4 STREET HERO our GM-Racing development team have produced the new high-performance TC4 STREET HERO PRO touring car in collaboration with our works drivers. These two models, varying only in the kit contents, contain many new and further developed components. Under Order No. 90061 the STREET HERO PRO is available as a kit for the experienced RC car driver. However, assembling the model is very simple, especially for such a technically sophisticated product, thanks to the comprehensive instructions. For the less experienced RC car racer the model is available in factory-assembled form under Order No. 90060. This version is 80% complete as supplied, so finishing the model is just a matter of final assembly. As a special treat this pack includes the PURPLE SX9 World Champion speed control, at a total price which constitutes a real bargain. However, both versions include the following new developments compared to the previous RC4 STREET HERO: - New, revised Teflon-coated aluminium shock absorbers. - All kits are supplied as standard with 2 differentials and an additional front central freewheel. This can be installed if required by the conditions of the race track. - Ballraced carbon fibre return plate. - Purple eloxided aluminium motor mount for optimum heat dispersion. - Large Teflon-coated 21-tooth aluminium gears in the centre drive axle. This makes the drive system even more efficient; the belt lengths have been revised to suit. - New ball differentials with dust seals for improved driving characteristics and longer useful life. - New rockers and shorter wheelbase, providing even more facilities for optimising the set-up to suit the track conditions.

Pack contents
Factory-assembled 4-WD chassis including PURPLE SX9 speed control, 2 ball differentials, 2 toothed belts, adjustable oil-filled shock absorbers, variable chassis for saddle packs and stick packs, steel drive shafts at the front and rear axles (front: CV joints), 24 mm competition wheels and slick tyres, decals, operating instructions in German and English.










Specification
Length approx. 440 mm
Width approx. 190 mm
Height approx. 120 mm
Wheelbase 257 mm
Front track approx. 165 mm
Rear track approx. 165 mm
Wheel Ř approx. 65 mm
Weight ready to run, approx. 1500 g


Here is the TC4

Kevin, not to start a debate here, but I believe you can run any chassis you want at the words, prototype or not.
