I just picked a used one up, seems like a very nice car and the quality is about on par with my Corally. Will be ineteresting to see how the laptimes compare.

smyka,
I have the t-fource And I am thinking of getting the new pro cut tires,I am running stock.How small can you run the pro cuts.I have my rear axel shimmed for the parma tires now and will I have to change that for the pro cuts.Also do you use the battery hold downs or do you tape your batteries?I am using the 3800 batteries and the hold downs seem to bend a little when I tighten them down.thanks and congrats on all your success in racing.

does the ride height have to be raised as the tires wear? cause i think it would change the handling, probably better but chassis would eventually bottom out

Well, my fast laps were almost the same between the Corally and the T-fource comparing lastweek and this week. The Corally has been getting faster and faster each week so we'll see if I can do the same with the T-Fource or if I got almost everything out of it setup wise.

On a side note the two cars feel totally different even though my lap times were about the same. The steering links on the Corally, even though they're sloppy, make the car feel so much less jittery down a straight and when making tiny steering corrections. Overall the steering on the CRC felt better, but I think I still have a ways to go on finding a good setup for the Corally. The Corally is a dream to work on compared to the CRC though, I somehow managed to break a T-bar setting my trim before I even ran 1 lap with the T-fource, and was thinking how much easier the swap would have been with the Corally.

Both great cars and it will be fun seeing which one ends up being my car of choice.

I've only tried the tweak screws in mine thus far. I've only run it once but will try the side springs after a few racedays with the tweak screws.
