BAAAAA....BAAAAA!!!!

Whats that?!?!?

BAAAAAA!!!!


Oh...thats just the sound of sheeple.


What did I tell you fathead?!?! As soon as the Blinged out, aluminum this and graphite-plate that TC4 came out, people would all of a sudden start collectively freaking out and drooling over it.

Also...I bet folks will then claim that it will get you 10 more laps than before and whiten your teeth at the same time!


XRay...bah...and to think I almost fell for the hype...(I came VERY close after 4 months of TC4 bashing by everyone I knew, hell, I think my car almost developed depression wondering all the time "why nobody likes me???" My poor TC4, he had self-esteem issues. )

While the Soviet Union in all it's malevolant splendor is no more, I the Soviet live on!!!

Funny story though, ask how a former United States Marine gets dubbed "The Soviet"...

here's a couple more pics....

and this was what i was told....yes...there seems to be a lot of screws but they're aluminum....yes...the aluminum camber mounts look heavy...but they're milled....yes....the motor mount looks like a pain to work on.....but the reason they didn't go with the pro4 style open end design was because of strength (easy to bend)....pretty much what you see in the pics is what you get minus the electronics of course...oh....and another thing....chassis is STIFF!!!!

since i was able to work at RCX on saturday. i got to talk to a few Associated guys...if you notice, there are several screws on the upper deck. by removing any combination of screws you can change the flex on the chassis (i.e. removing the center brace.. or even the posts)

littlezen: yes.. upper deck was 3mm as is the upper deck. car will be a monster on carpet.

Default TC4 FT

I wonder how it will perform on asphalt, do you think the stiffer chassi will bring any benefits?

Default looks like a 3Racing Chassis

Not a lot of difference from the 3Racing conversion chassis. Maybe even some shared parts. See the bottom of page, the image can be copied and magnified on the conversion chassis. http://www.3racing.com.hk/options.js...ted&carkit=TC4
