The car is actually a great car on Carpet expecially if it has the Cyrul conversion on it.The car actually turns BETTER than a XXX-s on carpet and foams with the cyrul conversion on it.
The car is fine.It will be competitive for a while till you are ready to move up.Car is very easy to drive and is decent durable.
The TC3 is VERY fragile around the hingepins and the front and rear arms break as easy as the SW.
If you ever replace the belts simply take a pair of toenail clippers and remove every other tooth off the Front and Rear Belt.
The car isnt as UNEFFICIENT as people think it is.With a pulley system like the car was setup having it takes some of the unefficiency's away.I did VERY well with this car back in the later 90's till about 2000-2001.
It will do you fine in stock for the 1st 6-12 months.When your ready to move up driving wise you can move up car wise.
Have fun with the car.
The TOP TUNNEL was the ONLY hassle with the car.If you want to email me with your email address I will send you a pic of where to cut the tunnel with a fine blade to make rebuilds ALOT easier.
Goodluck with the car and have a great time with it.
If you have the $50.00 buy the guys car with the cyrul conversion if your racing carpet.You will LOVE the way it handles.

My car was super quite, and almost sounded silent. I had my drive train pretty free also.

If your parents think it is a waste of time ask them if they would prefer you take an interest in drugs or some mindless activity where you don't learn a damn thing.

I think you would also need the top plates that go over the belts, on the top of the chassis. The chassis for the XX-4 is longer, so I assume that the top belts covers would be to short, since they were made for the shorter Street Weapon chassis.

The XX4 chassis and rear top cover are .400" longer and the rear belt is longer.The Street Weapon is a little long on wheelbase to begin with so you would have a real hard time getting a sedan body to fit on a XX4 chassis.It would probably just slow it down for on road-might be good for oval.

Modern 190mm bodies will fit fine.It will be a little easier if you use the more "slab sided" bodies like the Stratus and Alfa instead of the "flared fender" bodies like the DTM CLK-they can get a little tight around the back tires.
