Default Battery location...

OK -- I think by now, everyone is aware of the 2 standard and one "trick" battery locations for the TC3:

1) Forward
2) Back
3) "Split" (3fwd, 3back, with spacer in the center)...

Well.... I've been thinking (dangerous thing)...

How about putting 1/2 spacer at front, 1/2 spacer at rear, and turn the battery hold-down bar upside-down (so the flat side is down)... This would put the battery about 1/10" higher (the cells would line up with the "ribs" rather than the "slots" in the chassis), which could be bad, but it would let you CENTER a standard construction 6-cell pack (same weight balance F/R as a split pack)...

Would this be worth a try?

it would not be worth the effort, you're batteries would have to site higher, a whole lot of work for very little if any effect on the cars handling, if anything it would hurt to have the batteries sit higher....

Weird what some of you guys come up with

Sup guys, I just got my Team TC3 and planning to use only stock motors on it, but Im wondering which pinion gear would be safe with a 75t spur gear. I'll be using Tamiya's type r and Peak's spitfire, both are 27T stock motor. Thanks...

I run a 48 pitch 75 tooth spur. I've geared my motors any where from 25T to 29T depending on track size and motor I use. I would start at a 27T for a pinion and go up or down from there.

You should have taken some pictures, that would have been great, especially a video !! Oh well, we will just have to wait till next time.

Hope everyone had a good 4th of July...

Well, next year I think I'm gonna do something a little different. Same idea, but with a twist. I will definitely take some video. I don't think I'm gonna use another TC3. Something a little more 'expendable', like a TL01...

I might still have an old Pro2 that is expendable. . .

Ya, but Pro2's are VERY durable cars....I'd be afraid to waste M-80's on a car that won't break!!!!
