You mean RCzone.net?
To put it simply, it's just you....

and you don't give it credit, even though you can at least tell it's Lett in the picture, what more do you want! shish....

Funny since i could see words to another whole paragraph next to the pic at the Rc zone link. Maybe because it was on a small window. I'll try it again full screen.

That was it alright. The caption for the pic that was written to the left side actually gets overdone by the pic when you don't have the window on full screen. Interesting. Never seen that happen before. Try it sometime. Use the restore down on the window size on your IE.

Actually Im not surprised that the TC4s changes are quite small at the first view... Its hard to make the best car even better you know
But the real difference comes out on the track. The "bit" modified chassis, new steering and geometry changes can make a totally new car.
Im waiting for it very excited, and believe its gonna be a succes

That site says its gonna be out in october, so same time with the worlds.

The press release from AE went out today, supposedly. They say September availability, although I just checked GP and it's not in the system yet. I'd guess end of September.

Yeah-I agree-the TC3 needs only small evolutionary changes-but very important changes. I have driven the car with NTC3 rack on like on the gas car and reversed as it is on the Tc4-they feel different than the slider for sure. Dropping the stock rack is bold and Great!!

Looks like a Yokomo CGM with NTC3 steering & bumper. I wonder if it still includes free torque steer. haha

Deffiently looks much different in that shot, can see more detail with regard to the suspension etc.

So it was closer than we thought....

Glad to see AE finally releasing their new car.....This may actually get me out of retirement and back into racing...hmmmmm....


One question though: Why isn't the bearing infront of the spur gear supported like on the TC3???

likes: tranny same as before (should allow existing one-way to work, bellcranks (less play, less prone to rocks/carpet fibres), upper brace for front body posts ala ntc3, short/stronger/wider rear body mounts, battery/electronics repositioning, inner pivot mounts, threaded shocks.

mixed: would like to have seen single-seal shocks with diaphragm, appears that racer kit will be first (translation, $500+ to build a 'factory' kit), need full width front bumper.

been running my tc3 a few years now. unless losi comes up with something really special, looks like i'll be running a tc4 for the next few years.
