Car can work in VTA. Check the chassis for cracks or splitting along the edges. If you see any, you can seal with CA glue. Check the diffs to make certain they are smooth. Also look at center drive shaft for damage. Bearings may need cleaning or replacing depending on how it was taken care of by previous owner.

The TC4 (and 3 for that matter) is an excellent choice for VTA. I know 1/2 of the fastest guys here run TC4's in VTA. Like olly said check the outdrives for wear, you'll probably want to rebuild the diff's and shocks after you get it. Don't over tighten the front diff when you rebuild it or you'll end up shearing the head off the middle bolt.

Good luck with the new car and let us see some pics once you get it.
