I'd predict RC3 around January 14th, there's no way the 14th is going to be completed or bug free code, Telerik devs are great, but they're only human...
I have not told any clients about SF 4 release date, you're just setting yourself and your client up for disappointment. If you think that the product is going to be ready for Jan 14th I don't think you've been using the RC.
I don't mean to be overly negative here, but you really need to have realistic expectations. In RC2 they introduced a whole list of new features (more new features than bug fixes) so you can hardly call RC1 a release candidate if they're still releasing new functionality. (i.e. the new In page editing looks like a total rushed hack, hardly inline if you click on edit and it takes you to a new page, why not just take user to admin section then?)
Good luck with your tight deadline, I'd start changing your client's expectations asap. (i.e. under promise and over deliver).
