Me too, those bigger bearings are so much easier to get rolling freely. Less curvature in the races and probably a lot more robust during a side collision. Oh well, that sucks. Maybe Losi's new car will come out with bigger bearings and the hub carriers will be interchangeable.

Then, that joke about Losi hubs coming included with the TC4 wouldn't be so far off

Default Ya, maybe Losi.

So many people have complained about this on the TC3, but no one is saying a word now. I don't get it. No one says a thing when it comes to crunch time. If enough people said something maybe AE would do it.

Default Bigger bearings-Smaller bearings?????

And HPI recently just released adapters to install smaller bearings in the Pro4 hubs.

Hi Guys,

We have a pre-order up for the new TC4, and we should be one of the first to receive this new kit from AE.


Will you be at La Mirada this coming weekend? (curious to see if I can give that TC4 a try? )

I should be, Steve. Kind of anxious to give that T4 a run this weekend, though. Gimme a call later this week and I'll let you know on the plan.

this is all good news as far as im concerned.It just means that people will be seling their tc3 parts and whole cars.
I personally dont think they can make a car faster than the original.Ya still gotta stay off the pipes For a weekend racer on a budget the tc3 is the best r/c car ever made.. end of story.It will always be the carpet king! Chuck Norris always calmly says when someone challenges him on his tv show> (Im looking forward to it)<Thats the way i feel about this new car.I COULD USE A GOOD SET OF OUTDRIVES FOR MY TC3 so start selling those tc3 parts!..lol btw i could name a whole bunch of tc cars that changed from almost year to year and, the new ones were'nt much faster.Do i like my tc3? yer danm skippy

Nope they just put the TC3 in a new box and hoped nobody would notice!!!

>Sarcastic mode disengaged<

There are a number of differences it's just at a glance they do look very similar.

Im interested to check the car out this weekend at Mazda. I definately like the innovation on the swaybar mounts, the biggest problem I've had in the past with swaybars is the bind in the ballcups.

Why do people have the nerve to ask "Is the TC3 and TC4 the same" or "What do you guys think about the TC4" when all they have to do is read ahead in the dang thread? Are you guys that ask this question 8 years old with reading comprehension skills of a giraffe?
