I'm not familiar with the mmp2400. Is that a Castle motor?

I run a 3300kv motor which puts out a lot of torque. So installing alum cvds may be a good idea?

I don't know the specifics of that motor, but that kv rating is still in the ballpark of stock (13.5T) motors. You can probably get away with the stock parts, but you can always upgrade to aluminium parts later if you do break the stock ones.

That was initially my plan, because parts do eventually break.

Everything on the car is in imperial measurements. What size tools, eg hex drivers & allen drivers do I need ? What size are the wheel nuts on the car ?
Thanks

I bought these and use all of them on the TC4:

Wheel nuts are 11/32", a 3/16" comes in handy too.

I use this one when adjusting droop, easier to get down in there at an angle. https://www.teamassociated.com/parts...r_gold_handle/

Socket head motor screws are easier to work with too: https://www.amainhobbies.com/protek-...h-1202/p141675

Does anybody else have what looks like excessive play in their diff pinion shaft bearings? Did you put some shims in or just swap bearings more often than I have been?

For USGT tires I would start with one step harder spring in the front than the rear such as green rear and silver front, black or silver sway-bars depending on grip, middle roll center front and rear with long links, and full sauce both front and rear.

Just remember to look out for the chassis dragging.

Had 1st race outdoors with new rtr tc4. Car went well on very low grip asphalt. Used stock set up apart from changing oils to 40wt up front and 25wt in rear, and used stock electrics and was quick. Had understeer entering corners, and oversteer coming out, probably due to grip levels. I moved the front shocks in 2 holes but I do still need more corner entry though, hopefully without making car more taily coming out of corners. Would changing to green rear springs help oversteer ? What about the understeer problem ? Like I said, I don't want to cure the understeer but make the rear of the car come out more.
Thanks

If you have droop screw adjustments, increase both front and rear droop: more rear droop should help with the push going into the turn and more front droop should help with the looseness on accelerating out of turn.
