Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

TC3 wins C Euros. Check it out.

Associated had 3 cars in the A final. No one else did.

Corse R, I have some Spanish friends here in Malta at present. Fransisco's son, who is 13 years old is learning RC. I take him down to the track a couple of evenings a week, and let him loose with one of my cars.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

I followed the event all weekend on the Orion website.

Go to www.team-orion.ch and work your way from there.

They should be having more pictures later in the week.

Yes, despite the hype and the copying by other manufacturers, the 3 year old TC3 is still the car to beat.

You have to say also the TC-3 teamdrivers had great assistance from Barry Baker and Mike Reedy being there.

hey guys! question, did you ever find the need to shim your diffs on the tc3 to align them with the input gears? i have an fttc3 and the darn thing rattles alot! i know tc3s have comparatively noisier drivetrains compared to belt driven tcs in the market but this one is just extra ordinarily noisy. i mean comparing it to other tc3s on the track, this one makes a whole lot more noise. could anyone help out? thanks.

Yes - the shims are included and there are some instructions included on how to shim them up to get things to fit properly. It's fairly normal.

Boomer: thanks. actually, i got my kit 2nd hand so i dint get the manual and stuff so Im just learning things by tearing it apart and putting it back together. have a funny feeling the previous owner dint bother to put much thought into it when he was building the kit the first time. oh well, i'll figure things out and hopefully get to shim it properly .... maybe the excessive noise will go away ..... I HOPE!

That would be Associated part number 3911, TC3 Transmission Shim Set, 16, $5.00.
This is all provided that my catalog is correct.

I have a question concerning using the losi rear hub carriers.
Is this used just to acheive 1deg. or are their any noticable performace gains.
And does trinity make different degrees of red alumn blocks??
thanks

I think, from what TonyP has said, they are more incremental (1 degree, 2 degree, etc.) and they stand up a bit better being a better plastic and/or aluminum. . .
