Can you still buy these? Their site looks to be a bit out of date (2005).

I still race my TC4 and I love it. Although It is getting harder and harder to justify using my TC4 for VTA and not upgrading to the TC6.2 and get a TC7.1 for USGT.

There is a guy here who make carbon fiber drive shafts for the TC4 and I noticed immediate gains with it.

Here's a link to my setup sheets for those that are interested. I did quite well with this car when I ran it. Good steering, good rotation, and good straight line speed. I'm happy to answer any questions.

I have saved your setups and blog build page so when I rebuild by Tc4 rtr I can do what you did.
Do you have a setup for carpet?

I believe I have one left that I ran a few years ago, I’ll hav to dig it up. To be honest, the setup I posted on the blog should be close on carpet as well. The only real difference would most likely be droop and springs. The car had a fair bit of rotation on asphalt, so I’d bet it’d feel right at home on carpet.

Huh. That's actually pretty close to what I had in mind with the custom design I was planning. Although I was planning on sticking with a TC3 steering rack.
