Yeah, a pic would clarify it. Josh didn't have one and is away for a race this weekend so he can't explain it in a while.

Does, anyone else have a pic of Josh's car from cleveland or the snowbird nats?

I saw Josh's car. He took 2 old enbells, and removed almost alof the material except the area where the bearing is insered and a portion of the side of the endbell running parrallel to the shaft. These 2 parts where screwed to the chassis braces. A 1/8 brass tube ran between the endbell parts, and thru the bearings, with the swaybar running off the tubes at a 90* angle. they ran to a part that connected them to the arm . I have a crude drawing here....

How did he mount the endbells to the braces? Did he drill holes in them?

OK,

So I sold my FT TC3 a while back, but saw a guys car at an out of town race with the IRS chassis (sweet) so I went a bought a used Team TC3 for under $100.00.

This thing is super sweet. I had other graphite conversions for other chassis (i.e. Penguin for Pro 3) but it wasn't up to this standard.

So, anyone got a good setup for this thing?

If it runs half as good as it looks....what am I going to do with this Losi thing???

What surface are you running on?

I have two IRS TC3s and here is the set up I have on both. I run on low traction, bumpy asphalt.

Blue spring in front, Green in Rear
40wt. oil all around
shortest wheel base
-1 degree of chamber all around
just a little bit of toe out
6mm ride height

Very Simple - Yes. Glued to the track - Yes

Get the IRS stiffing kit too. It makes the car handle so much better than the already AWESOME handling IRS chassis alone.

Just ran my car since I switched the Spur gear. Went from a 72 48p to a 88 64 p, stand around 6.29. Great acceleration, my diff is too loose so I'll need to tighted that up a little.

How are you guys running your diffs:

Is your front diff a litlle tighter in the front?

Yes I received the pictures, thank you very much...

I am building a TC3 from the ground up... Purchased the complete IRS kit on ebay for $179 and the Stiffening kit for $39. Just need to pick up the diffes and arms etc...

I decided to build it piece by piece and just race my FTTC3 outdoor's and save the new IRS TC3 for carpet. Should be finished with it in a couple more months....
