Waoh...This thread has became a Xray Vs Associated thread...

I don't drive any of the cars.But from observation from my track,the Xray is a very popular car.And the TC4 is least seen on the track.But maybe down to the availabilty of AE parts. We've a Team AE sponsored driver here and it seems that the AE FT TC4 is very fast and promising....

I just replaced my XXXS with a FT TC4. The TC4 works well, I am running 1-2 second faster laps with it. I would never have thought a car could be such an influence on lap times. First week (day really) driving the car I fnished 3rd in the A. This week third in the A again. I used to be a first in the B racer. It is fast and handles well, better than my XXXS by far.

That being said, I can say that the steering has plenty of play especially for a brand new kit. The arms are starting to loosen up, and I despise working on it.

I race on carpet with foams and the fastest cars at the track I use are Xrays and TC3s and TC4s. I dont own an Xray yet but will be looking closely at them again soon. I drove the Xray of the guy who wins the A mains all the time and it felt slow, but the handling was certainly there. Plus it was on rubber tires.

So, all I can say is the TC4 may be sloppy and lacking the sophistication of the Xray but it flat out works and is probably the fastest car off the line and down the straights other than a TC3 or Pro4 or maybe a Yok SD.

I have belt drive car XXX-SG+ and other is TC3 already sold out,
I find good set them up on them, but its time to look for new car,
