Ebay can occasionally provide a non-abused specimen. The small spur gears are getting hard to find, which if you want you can blame on me as I hoarded them when they went on clearance.

You can get a good bearing set for like 18 bucks from Boca. Be sure to lock the front diff, just taking the balls out and replacing the thrust bearing with a stack of washers works great, but you probably knew that.

I have 2 with both the FF layshaft and front spool. This car needs to make a comeback. I have enough parts to run them for years. Stocked up on everything but the front plastic drive cups.

Few changes and i could be on point with the newer stuff. the concept of running the battery pack down the middle to me at least looks ideal. All the weight centered.

Few minor annoyances with the vehicle from the time it was made but they could do it for sure.

As for parts, ebay would be my suggestion. Some places sell a variety of NIB parts dirt cheap there.

I can confirm this statement. I purchased this collection from you. I love these cars, but sorry that you have regrets. I run usgt and tc competitively with them and the type r's are still winning (often) at our track here in ohio.

Default Finally one available

Just posted my spare up for grabs. Worth it considering the battery mounted on board and some spares. Hope it finds a good home.

One setup suggestion I found necessary is getting the most rear toe-in you can. My car ran the 2-degree arm mount and the 1-degree hub for three total, which solved a lot of problems with the car being loose.

Other than that, the diff will be crucial, my car was always diff-sensitive and performed best when the diff was as free as possible.

I would not recommend a front one-way as I think it would ruin the cars handling and almost nobody runs a one-way in rubber tire TC anymore, but I have seen several for sale on Ebay, for like $55!

As far as the Flying Fox layshaft goes, unless one pops up as used or New Old Stock they are all gone. It's not the end of the world, there is still adapters available from PRS: http://www.precisionracingsystems.co...S-Adapter.html which let you run normal spur gears, and that is really all you can do with the FF layshaft anyway as a LiPo over about 4500mah is too thick to fit under the rear bulkhead, it just spaced the pullies out a hair wider to fit a lipo between them back when LiPos were 3700mah full size packs. The best way I have run my car is with a LiPo plate and the ESC mounted on the plate behind the battery. Full size LiPos are really not possible...

For an occasional discussion of old touring car racing or a picture of my car as described above, see this thread:

Actually we had a killer one way setup on the type-r on carpet rubber tire, I'm sure its out there somewhere, it was a mike haynes setup from 360 RC. The one ways wouldn't last though, which was a problem, they would blow out one of the bearings, and you would need a new unit..

I think I found the setup in question:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/4007343-post6122.html

It actually looks pretty cool, front swaybar with no rear and the heavy front spring, I could see it working on medium-high bite. I always thought a one-way would make the back end come around pretty hard.

Hi guys,
It seems like the c-hubs are in short supply and out of production. What are you guys doing for replacements? I read that the TC3 c's work with some slight modification. I this the best solution or is there another current part that would work? If the tc3 part works I was considering an aluminum part to increase durability. Any info would be greatly helpful.
