Default tc4 Diggity Designs chassis..

I'm thinking of buying the Diggity or an aftermarket chassis of some sort.. I am wondering if any of the tc4 chassis will work with my tc3?

I mainly just parking lot bash and make speed runs MMP,Losi 7500kv & 3s. Around 60mph runs.

Have you tried to contact Diggity Designs? They would probably be the best source or info. FYI we had a guy running a Diggity converted TC4 and the car was great in VTA. It is a nice setup. good luck.

Robinson makes 48p (49t / 52t / 55t) spur gears that eliminate the tc4 fdr issues for good...

There are also 64 pitch pinions and spur combos that eliminate the gear ratio problems. These weren't commonly manufactured a few years ago, but I think VTA and brushless motors in general have driven the market and now it's no problem finding what you need. You should be able to get down below 4:1 FDRs with no modification.

I have a Diggity XLR8 that I run in the TC class. It is a great handling car on asphalt. It is more than just a conversion. It's really like it's own car with a few TC3/TC4 parts needed to finish it. I think it would be an awesome VTA car but I haven't converted it because I still run my TC3 for that.

Thanks guys,

I think i'll look into the DD chassis... Heard nothing but good things about it!

The problem I have now is the Flimsy hpi bodies not being good under pressure. Car wants to take flight in the low to mid 60's

I don't know about vta bodies, but the mazda speed6 handles perfectly...Hopefully protoform will come out with a vta body....
