Re: Support bearing. I'll get a better pic of this for ya...didn't realize we didn't have one up. It's a cool idea...it helps to allow you to move the battery WAY in closer to the centerline, without a spur gear 'bulkhead' to get in the way.

Weight difference. Haven't weighed it, actually, to compare. I think it MIGHT come in a little under the TC3 due to the much narrower chassis. I'll get some specs on this for ya soon....

speedxl: Ya, sorry. WHOEVER told you that (I know who that WHOEVER is) really shouldn't have. But, oh well. We weren't ready to release those rumors yet.

FYI: Ran the car at SoCal tonite. Man, what a wonderful car to drive. SO much more fun than the TC3. Hate to say that since I LOVED my TC3, but this thing is just great. All the new features on it made tuning a breeze.

TPhalen,
Do you have a close-up pix of the car with the air duct system installed? I can't seem to find any clear ones.

Hey TPhalen, RC10.com is saying the kit will come with "heavy-duty" MIP CVD's, are those the same as the new blue aluminum MIP CVD's we are seeing in all these pics?

Thanks Filipow....

He's right, Kurt Wenger had a GREAT showing with the car. Shows up and places 3 on the grid, then finishes 3rd in the main. It's gonna be a fantastic car.

I don't have any pix at the moment of the duct installed, but I'll have some early next week.

The Heavy Duty CVD's are BEEFY units...much beefier than the current production ones. You shouldn't have any more problems with these.....

One of my longtime complaints about the TC3 was the amount of effort it took to get a free-rolling drivetrain. Granted, I have a Racer kit, but even still, having a diff that freely spins in the diff housing should be a "box-stock" feature, not one that's achieved after a Dremel session or two.

The new car looks impressive. I'm interested in seeing what the AE camp has come out with to top their flagship tourer.

Like I said, it looks impressive. I may give it a try in a few months. Would like to try a good shaft drive car to compare with belt cars I tend to migrate towards.

Mr. Phalen does the TC4 have bigger hub bearings than the TC3?

Default No Donoman, AE is cheaping out...

and they decided to cut costs. I would rather pay a few extra dollars and replace them with larger bearings.
