One-Way in the rear. Tried it. Pushes going in and spins coming out. Don't waste your time....

It's possible that you m,ay have the screws too tight, causing the spur to distort, try loosening the screws a bit and see what that does.

I've found the same thing - Kimbroughs (which are molded) seem to mesh differently on different sides of the gear.

I'm using Robinson machines delrin gears.

Robinson Racing has some and there is someone else, I will look on Saturday. I can't remember the brand off-hand.

I agree kimbrough are too soft for my liking, i like ither the robinson machined delrin range or there is a UK based company called RW Racing who make extremely nice pinion and spurs

Good Morning Everyone...

Tried to locked diff upfront, but without the rear shock tower up front....all I have to say is PUSH PUSH PUSH, and a little more PUSH...

I am going to put the front shock tower up front, the question I have is what camber link position, shock tower position, and what tow-in and camber should I be running with this, also any spring and shock oil suggestions would be appreciated...

The car was faster on the straight then anyone I was running with, but I couldn't turn the darn thing without slowing to a crawl, which lost me any advantage I had gained...

I am running Sunday at a parking lot track, fairly bumpy...if that will make any major differences...

FYI: I am running Tony's Bumpy Setup right now...

Thanks!
John

FYI: Just putting the rear tower on the front and throwing in a diff WILL NOT make your car have great steering and consistency. You will most likely need to do some major setup changes to get it to work. But when you do, the car will have changed so dramatically that you will think it's a totally new car.

Tony,

I had figured on making major changes, so yesterday I had a demonstration at a block party so I decided to try it and see where I was at as a starting point...thus finding out that I had major push...so now I start the process of finding more turn-in...I don't mind working for my setup, took me almost 6 months to get my pro3 right, but now it is real nice...The TC3 has just been a bit more stubborn....

I have a second TC3 that will probably be run this weekend, but I would like to further make changes to the car I tried yesterday and continue improving it.

I realize there is no "Wonder Change" to make a car fast...

There isn't a "wonder change" but there is a good setup that works quite well for a starting point. . . On Tony's site there is Barry's Reedy Race setup which used a locked front diff. I started there and made small progressive changes and it works great. Makes a great starting point.

Yup, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people(mostly stupid people giving bad answers)....and for tips I'd just follow the direction faithfully, Associated really did their homework on it, & it shows. Just take your time to get everything right, & enjoy the build....

I have the said setup and I can say from all the setup I have tried for the tc3 this is the best for carpet!!!
you can drive so aggresively and still be on rails!
dont know yet about outdoor.
Im now modifying a solid diff from nttc3 to fit the fttc3
so no more diff rings and diff balls to lock and snap!

I took an old diff and removed the balls and spaced out the "nut" side a bit and just tightened it down. didn't damage anything and I have a locked diff that I can put some balls back in and make it normal again.

We ran my TC3 last night with dual one-ways in it. Just a bit more aggressive than with the single one-way. It worked very very well.

It's not as tolerant as the solid front, so if I run it I'm going to use the locked front. but if Anton is going to run it, he'll run the dually.

I am going to try, just for kicks, the middle one-way and locked front diff. . .just to see what happens.
