If it's in good shape then it might be a decent deal, but be aware, it is likely NOT a Factory Team car, since the FT TC4 has only just NOW been released to the public(it just hit some of the big distributors a couple of days ago). But even the basic Team car is pretty solid, I definitely like mine better than the TC3 I ran the 5 years before it....

The chassis has to much flex in it to be consistent,I have tried to make this car fast on the carpet..sometimes yes..sometimes no,It's hard to keep ahead of this car..as the traction goes up the car seems to not be very good as the traction goes up.I guess thats why at the "big" carpet races you see so many TC4's in the A..NOT..

Hey Plumbum, kipper here!

Take a look at jason's xray hes selling for 100 bucks as a roller, then you just need the basic's like motor, esc, servo and some tires.

doesnt sound like a very good deal but keep this in mind........ regardless of what kind of car you have if you have the car right, nothing bound up, bent, ect., and drive 5 minutes clean without wrecking you will do just fine. the driver makes the car...... car never makes a driver

I think your wrong on that one and $100 is a fair price,If a car is a noodle and wont handle on a high traction carpet track,even if you keep the car off the boards your still off the pace..case in point,I raced(past tense) a TC4,I am a clean driver i dont hit boards..etc.The best i have ever done with this car is 4th. or 5th. a friend of mine let me race his RDX and i put 2 laps on the field,and this is racing with guys who lap me when i'm racing my TC4,So in my opinion your car does matter..to a point,A good car will not make a bad driver a good one.But a good car will make a good driver better..
