Ok, the ankle is promising. Just got back from ER and the xrays show no breaks. BUT, the doc said it was severly sprained...he was surprised it WASN'T broken. Wow. Anyway, I'm hobbling around on crutches right now. How the heck am I gonna get my RC stuff to my car, or drive a 5-Speed with crutches???? Sucks. Gotta find a way to the Nats...heh heh

dcracer. I'm using the Irrgang shaft. Weight is comparable (I think the carbon one might be a tad lighter).

Matman03: Nope. The NTC3 suspension is completely different. I guess you could adapt it with ALOT of work, but I really don't think it's worth it...

One more often overlooked option for universals for the TC3.....is...believe it or not....at Integy. Yep....they ONLY have rears...but they do work front & rear.

Rear......no modification.

Front, slightly remove some of the dogbone opening in the front hubs....and it does NOT weaken the hubs.

These are tried and proven....do not bend, break, etc........just clean and lube them out of the package.....and give them a little lube......about every 30 or so packs.......about 20 for you people running mod motors. I lube ALL of my CVD's with AE Green Slime.......works very well.

Ya I just got some arms for the front and the rear and they have two holes in them. Are these the new ones? I got the car in a trade and they came with it. They have a shinny plactic look to them. Are you coming to socal sat?

Thanks, Drew

Hmmm. Didnt' think they were out yet. Interesting.

Make sure the car is 190mm wide. The original 200mm gas/rally arms had two holes in them, and are readily available.

Tony,

Just wanted to send along a big Thank you for the tips on assembling the rear-end of the TC3 with respects to the Arms and pins, I did as you instructed and the car only required on small spacer to be put into the left side shock to remove all tweak!!!

Thank you again can't wait to put the car back on the track with it ready to track properly...

John

Default ONe-way question!!

I am starting this weekend with two-diffs and will switch to a one-way in practice. What are the shock, camber link, etc changes you need to make immediately when making the switch?? I am running on rubber tires on brushed concrete!!!
Thanks,
Ray

You should go to the stock setup for a bumpy track in the manual and with a one way I usually go stiffer pring up front.

Hi Guys,

We got a couple sets of the Titanium racing titanium screw kits for the TC3 in stock right now. These are stronger and lighter than the stock screws

Thanks
