Lem2,

Finally here's a pic of my 414M (sorry kung medyo blurry). Baka pwede mo i-flip yung alum steering arm ng 04 mo para low cg. I flipped mine tsaka nilipat ko isang spacer sa ilalim ng steering arm sa taas.

In case meron interesado bumili ng ultra limited edition M02, check niyo na lang yung manila rc gallery.

and here's the write up we received:

NEW PRODUCT:

Team Associated RC10 TC4 Touring Car

Team Associated's revolutionary TC3 set the benchmark for touring car
performance and quickly became the choice of winning racers all over the
world. The TC3's race-proven shaft-drive design captured many national and
international championships in the past few years, and has spawned numerous
imitations. Now the Team is proud to introduce the next generation RC10TC4
Touring Car. the refinement of the proven TC3 racing platform, optimized
with more precise tuning features, better balance, and greater durability.

The TC4's chassis has been designed with the batteries moved closer to the
centerline of the car. a favorite TC3 modification of many Factory Team
drivers. This "mass centralization" allows quicker directional transitions,
and the narrower chassis provides more side-to-side roll clearance.

The inline motor mounting system features an all-new machined aluminum
motor mount which not only provides greater motor stability, but also
functions as an integral heatsink to draw heat away from today's hotter
modified motors. An optional "Factory Team" TC4 chassis forced air duct
system will be offered to provide even greater airflow to the motor.

Up front, the TC4 features the double-decked impact-resistant plastic and
lightweight foam bumper system adopted from the Nitro TC3. The shock towers
have also been redesigned for greater strength, and now have four upper
shock mounting hole options. The rear body
mounts have also been relocated outward on the shock tower to give wider
support to the body.

The drivetrain of the TC4 has received many refinements, including a new
design 6061 T6 blue anodized aluminum drive shaft that fits in stronger,
beefed-up composite drive cups. The included genuine Kimbrough 72-tooth
spur gear mounts on a more secure, 3-bolt hub with 6 mounting positions to
fit most any spur gear. The blue aluminum MIP CVD's have also been upgraded
from the previous-generation TC3, and are now thicker and 3 times stronger
for maximum resistance to bending. The molded composite wheel hex drives
now feature a "star drive" shape which allows more exact manufacturing
tolerances, and a more precise fit with most standard touring car wheels.
The TC4 comes standard with blue anodized aluminum threaded shock bodies, a
feature previously included only on the Factory Team level kits.

The TC4's all-new suspension components spent many months of development in
Area 51, resulting in major improvements in adjustability, precision, and
strength. The inner arm hinge pins are now larger-diameter, 40% stronger,
and are captured in the arm mounts by pivot balls to provide consistently
free, non-binding movement. This floating hinge pin system allowed us to
develop an all-new anti-dive, anti-squat suspension adjustment shim system
front and rear. The wheelbase is now adjustable .090" at the inboard
suspension hinge pins, providing, total of .180 adjustment. Both the front
and rear suspension links feature vertical ballstud adjustment for making
precise changes in your chassis'roll-center.

The steering system has also been optimized, and now features a new
dual-bellcrank/rack configuration similar to the Nitro TC3. This
ball-bearing supported system is less susceptible to capturing track debris
that could bind up the rack's movement, and also features an integral
spring-loaded servo saver and ackerman adjustments using the optional
ballstud spacers.

Of course, the TC4 will be supported by a full line of "Factory Team"
performance parts, including blue titanium turnbuckles, optional radial
heatsinks, a forced air-duct system, and the entire range of graphite
chassis components.

Wala pa sa akin yung LW bulkhead na binili ko. Papunta pa lang pinas. Mukhang mabebenta ko yung M02 ko for $180 kung sakaling matuloy yung deal. Di kasama doon yung Abarth & Mini Cooper body.
