JC3 - I've done the front DCV conversion and I absolutely love it. Turns are smother and I can finally run the steering lock to lock without massive chattering with the front spool. I highly recommend it - that is if you're committed to the TC4 chassis. For mine I went with the tc7 steering block, not the shapeways one.

Expected cost would be...

ASC 31632 DCV kit: $38.99
ASC 31679 Steering Block: $6.99
5x10x4 bearings (x2): most hobby shops have them for about $1 each
5x10x3 bearings (x2): same as above
ASC 31370 Axle Crush Tubes: $3.99
ASC 31112 Dowel Pins: $3.49
ASC 31670 Wheel Hex: $14.49

This is for everything, with all the "proper" parts for a smooth/direct install. Again, it isn't cheap, but it sure is nice in the end!
How deep in to the front diff outdrives to the DCV pins sit? I had the Losi kit years ago and they were right on the edge of falling out just sitting on the bench.

Does anyone know if the b44 rear shock tower mount will bolt up to the tc4 differential housing? I'm looking for a mount for a custom carbon shock tower and want something taller than the TC4 FT mount. Thanks

You may want to email Team Associated with the question.

Anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to remove the front outer hinge pin? I've got to switch out a caster block and I'm having a hard time getting that pin out.

Try to find a punch thats just a tad smaller then the pin in diameter at the hardware store or local gun shop. Take the arm and rest it on its edge on the workbench and tap it out with a hammer.

I want to change out the steel turnbuckles for something lighter but not sure what size or thread type the stock one is. Would the metric ones like this Tamiya work? Tamiya, 3X32mm Alum. Turnbuckle Shaft ,(54249)

Best to get a set of Lunsford turnbuckles, Lunsford 2037 Titanium Turnbuckle Kit. (#4037 gets you the turnbuckles and all hinge pins)

I use a thumbtack thru the little hole. Tap it in. Ive found if they need to come out using this method, they're usually toast.

+1 on the thumbtack punch

Though the hingepin might just be slightly bent, in that case I just take my time to bend it straight till it can roll pretty freely cause I'm to cheap and impatient to wait for parts sometimes.
