Just got a FT TC3. I know I asked this Sunday.

Why is there one bushing used in the diffs?
Could I replace it with a bearing?

Oilite bushings are only bad where there is high RPM and high loading, here you have neither.

Guess what this is.
What a sweet chassis!

I got it from HPI forum. They are still talking about Pro4.
One of the guys said that this is TC3 with Kai chassis.

Anybody know who's selling it here?

Most beautifull upper deck I've ever seen in RC car.

Talking

What they aren't telling you is that by the time it goes into production all those nice graphite sheets will be soft plastic (read: space age fibers) lol

Easy for you to say.

BTW, guys it's TC3 with kai hop ups not pro4 prototype.
A guy at hpi forum posted this to show how close pro4 prototype is to TC3.

But nobody seem to know where this hop up is being sold.
Other than maybe in Hong Kong or some asian countries.

This upper deck would look great with IRS chassis.
But how they put it on?

Default Sorry no TC3

Guys take a close look at the attach points at both ends of the upper deck. No TC3 has an attach system like is in that photo. Also unless someone has came up with all new gear boxes and all this is for sure not a TC3.

This is VERY similar to the 'Umino TC3' that Hara is running over in Europe. This is a prototype....it probably won't go into production for awhile, if ever. And like Racin Rev said, it MIGHT be a molded chassis as the final product.

yodace: We run the bushing in the diff.

Does anyone have a picture of the car Hara was driving? I would like to see it. The car that is posted is very sweet. I buy it if it was for sale here in the states.
