Default Yep, great...

drivetrain, love the new bumper setup, camber links, steering rack, chassis, motor mount, new shaft, arms, shaft cups, hubs, shock towers, and toe blocks.

Oh by the way... post your setup so i can take a look at it...
I'll see if I can get the fam to go to dinner at Applebee's tomorow night, then I may be able to stop at SoCal, and hang for a few minutes.

My SoCal setup

Front
Springs: Associated Gold(19.5lbs)
Shock Oil: Associated 40wt
Camber: -2
Camber links: #2, raised by 2 shims
Shock position on tower: #4, or outter most hole
Shock position on arm: #2, or outter most hole
Arm shims F/R: 1/2
Toe: -1(Toe out)
'C' carriers: 0
Kickup: 1
Blocks raised F/R: 3tab/2tab
Ride Height: 5mm
Droop: On gauge, 7
Bump Steer: 4shims each side(same shims for camber link adjustments)
Ackerman: Inner hole on knuckle

Rear
Springs: Associated Red(22lbs)
Shock Oil: Associated 40wt
Camber: -2
Camber links: #1, raised by 2 shims
Camber links(on hub): #1, or inner most hole
Shock position on tower: #4, or outter most hole
Shock position on arm: #2, or outter most hole
Arm shims F/R: 2/1
Toe: +3(toe in)
Anti-squat: 0
Blocks raised F/R: 4/4
Ride Height: 5mm
Droop: On gauge, 4

Other
Battery: Front
Front diff: One-Way
Gearing Spur/Pinion: 72/24
Body: Losi Alfa 156GTA
Tires: Sorex 36R with Yokomo Super Thin Inserts

This is much off of the stock setup, just a tweak here and a tweak there to give a little more steering responce. Hope this helps!

Nightbreed, on a sarcastic note - You don't use oil filled shocks??? Friction shocks? Tie rod's(no shock what so ever, just a turnbuckle connecting the arm to the shock tower)? What kind of new shocks do they have where there is no oil? Maybe I could change my nickname from bubbles... I have to admit though, Tamiya shocks kick serious butt!

Hey Nice Site Michael!

I imagine you are a sponsored driver as you have tested the TC4 for weeks already and have a lot of Factory Team parts like the Graphite Blue Battery Brace and other stuff on there.

I will have to read through the site more tonight after work. Looks like a lot of good information on there.

Talking TC4 in sweden

Hi there i just recieved my TC4 to my LHS, and now im going to spend the next couple of hours at my desk putting it together.
Is there anything specific to think about or is as simple as the xray to assemble ?

Asphalt. High traction too. It's something like, non sealed? Breaks apart kind of easy, but soaks up WD-40 and Paragon...
It's indoor too.

Fredda, when you get to Bag H, there is a suplement sheet. This sheet, if I remember correctly, instructs you to install two shims under the ballstuds. Along with changing the position of the link from the #1 hole, to the #2 hole. I can't seem to find the suplement sheet. Therefore, I am not 100% about my information...

The sheet also tells you to grind a bit of material away for the chassis brace where the ball studs mount, this will make getting the diffs. in and out a bit easier!

If you look there is hardly any room between the outdrives and the chassis brace...
