I experienced the same type of stuff when running my spool and put the diff back in and am very happy with the car, I am running on high traction asphalt though.

Thanks for yall's time
Chassis
diff cases
Chassis Stiffeners

These parts will be out soon. The chassis is like a tc3 or tc4 would be. They also are coming out with arms too.........I have seen aftermarket ones already.

arms, as in suspension arms... heck, you can already get hard wishbones in the TA04R Hard wishbones, they are the same.

And I don't think you do the car justice calling it a TC3/4 wannabe dude.

Uhhh, he didn't call it a TC3/4 wanna be, just said that the tub resembled their graphite injected tubs. I admit that was the first thing I thought of when I saw photos of it.

i like mine pretty well... havent run it very much really. i did get it just in time to run it in Memphis last year, and placed 3rd in GT3, which is a Mabuchi motor. the only hopus on it then were some TRF shocks, CVD's and swaybars...

now, it has a few more, CF towers, Aramid belts, still havent run it much. on asphalt with white front springs, it is veeery aggressive... loads o' steering! i intend to get it out more, to prepare for the TCS again...

Wes

You misunderstood ..............I was comparing it to the TUB STYLE CHASSIS that Associated has. If you go back 1 page and see what I wrote about the car, you will see that I like it . Lighten up.........................

try some anti-dive in the front, worked for me. I'm using the hard 2degrees palstic carrier in the rear and I made my TB's longer.Shorter for the front. BTW I'm using a 1C susp. block for the rear-rear.

So from all this, I'll gather that the kit springs are stiffer than yellows.....but 'just slightly'.

That 'just slightly' might be just what I need in the rear of my car compared to the yellows I'm using out back now.

I got some 0 offset wheels and they are just a but too close to rubbing on the turnbuckle for my liking running a bit of negative camber.

Is 53646 Wheel Spacer (Blue) what is needed to pack the wheel out a bit?

Yes, the blue/red wheel spacers or just get new hexes to replace the 4mm, they have 5mm and 6mm available. I am running 6mm with 0 offset rims.
