The other thing set your car up yourself donít copy one of the internet or a mate that is quicker you will drive differently and will need to set the car up differently people who copy aint got a clue.
Good post. It took me a whole season of racing and a whole summer of practice to learn what you have typed.

The last I heard, Jimmy had given up on both the X Ray and the Barracuda and was back to winning.... with a Tamiya.

Same with Chris Kerswell - Barracuda to RDX. I don't think he's lost a race since changing to the RDX.

Just had my first time out with the new FT TC4 yesterday ,WOW what a Car. went about 1 and 1/2 laps faster with it .It did have a little push coming out of the turn but a caster block change help that. the car was glued to the track and fast .cant see why people are bashing the FT, one thing i know they are to impatient and dont want to work with it .A DRIVER AND A CAR MUST BECOME ONE BEING GRASSHOPPER!

I owned a xray and I ended up selling it cause it was too expensive so i ended up getting the tc4 with bmi and now i feel it was the BEST decision i ever made in my life.

I have never heard someone that was a good driver say they were dissapointed in the performance of the car, just in the fact that they have to upgrade the car or that they were dissapointed in the lack of access to the spur and diffs.

I would put myself in the good driver area.And I can say i was/am disappointed in the performance of the car in stock,19T was good but in the area i race at their are a lot more guys running stock than 19T or mod.It just did not have the rip corner to corner that i wanted,it did handle good though.

FT TC4 wins the A main @ the Halloween Classic

PLEASE CHECK BARRY BAKERS TIMES @ THE NATIONAL (19 turn)
HE was killing every body in qualifying. He was taken out in the ( A MAIN ) by some slower traffic.

The FT TC4 is a good car.


GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Barry

Thats one race out of many. You cant judge the car off of one race. All the latest touring cars are good, everybody has their own opinion from there own experiences. Get whatever car you like, make sure you can get parts easily and your good to go.

I just bought a used TC4, will have the FT upgrade in a few weeks...Im interested to see how it changes the car, and honestly interested to see how it will do against the other cars. We have like 8 different cars at my track. Pro 4, FT TC4, Team TC4, JRX-S, 414, Xray, XXX-S, and a TC3 its crazy, hope to work with some of the other FT guys on here and get some solid setups. I got a up cose look of the car saturday, and I have to say AE really shocked me, I thought the car was very well constructed and looked great. Wasnt bad on the track either (not very good driver at that)
