Nope. It's IFMAR rules not ROAR stock rules.

I thought there was a rule where you at least had to have a part number for the chassis kit, or they had to sell so many before....but maybe I was misinformed. Anyway....there is a part number out there for the TC4 so it on its way.....when who knows. Have fun waiting....maybe it wont be like the TC3 and you have to wait 1 1/2 years for it.

Honestly, can Anyone see what differences AE will make if they keep the shaft/tub design (which I think they wil with the amount of succes they have had with it). The Yok is a preveiw of the TC4.

Hopefully the new car will come with some carbon fiber shock towers for the bling. I also hope it comes with bigger bearings so that the small ones don't wear out so quickly. The diffs could be put in a better location and the motor cam could be notched so it's easier to make adjustments.

Actually, I think the biggest improvement they could make would be the build quality... Or include a mallet with the kit to help with parts fit if its anything like a TC3?

The Yok is a preveiw of the TC4.

I think that's a pretty correct statement... The MR4TC SD CGM is what the TC4 could pretty much be... It's a pleasure of a car to have to work on and so much more adjustable than the TC3... Every time I need to get to my TC3 diff's I cringe... Takes me under 30 seconds to have my diffs out of my Yok...

OK how can the Yok be a prototype when they copied the TC3 in the first place. You know what they say "Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery." or something like that.
