After running a TC3/TC4 for 5 years, it's nice to run something different.

Barry Baker....you're still my hero.

I hear that. It looked like it agreed with you quite well at Frederick!

We all know you can wheel anything though I hear they are thinking about doing an ORL race down at Frederick in the spring. We are really pushing for it...It would be nice to have you guys part of the series again. Adds a little validity to it.

Hey its Mr Spence. No one will ever argue about switching cars as you ran the TC3/4 for years as did Mike D. After that long something new is cool and refreshing change of pace. You are fast with all of them so it don't matter what you wheel.

I have more if you guys wanna see them. I will test it this weekend and if it works well i will be adding the FTTC4 motor mount to ease motor installation. The car is VERY stiff this way... the servo offset away from the center line when compared to the FTTC4 should help offset the weight of the IB's... which incidentally DONT fit the tub chassis w/o modification.

Nah Bob, it doesnt flex like the upper plate that BMI released for the tub car did... it only had four screws and small standoffs that allowed for the plate to move more. This is tied all together with eight screws... and the parts fit keeps the pieces tied, flat and unmovable, in comparison. The camber link mounts also press on the sides of the transmission cases... they are made of AE carbon composite... this should help with flex too. Overall in hand it feels alot stiffer than the FTTC4 and only weighs an ounce and a half more. Well see...

What are those rear hub carriers and how come only the one rear camber link mounting position?
Would anyone be interested in a TC4 belt drive conversion that would layout like an X-Ray?
It would consist of:
double deck chassis
aluminum front and rear diff mounts that include sway bar mounts
aluminum center shaft/motor mount
aluminum center shaft
front and rear pulleys that fit TC4 diffs (or the part # and mfg of them)
center pulleys (or the part # and mfg of them)
belts (or the part # and mfg of them)
shock tower mounts that accept FT towers

They are Losi rear hubs from the XXXS. Dave is that with your front arms on the rear also?
