I use 23T and 24T pinions and they fit fine. Looks like you should be able to go 20T with no problem, but I've never had a need to gear that low.

hey guys, please read my questions fully. i just want to know if anyone knows the smallest 48 pitch pinion that will work with the stock 72t spur. i have used a 19, but i KNOW i will have to gear lower. i want to know if a 16 or 17 will still work or if i will run out of adjustment room.

Super 38 -- Tires are very important for carpet racing. The current favorites stateside include Sorex, Yokomo 138G and Take Off. We use Sorex 28 in front, 24 in back with HPI inserts (blue/red). Seems that the "tire du jour" is an ever changing thing.

Super38. Associated's site has the stock carpet setup on it. It also has some other carpet setups that were sent it by other drivers. This may help you out a bit. My site also has the stock carpet setup.

Home from the Nats....whew...long week!!! Good to be home...

Hey guys. I recently found the best hop-ups that I have seen for the TC3. BRP makes a wide front bumper and side nerf wings. Man! these things really save your arms and setup when you, ummm... kiss the boards. They are really cheap too. ~$15 for both.

Johnny: If you need to go that low, why don't you go to a 75 spur? A 75 will still stay inside the chassis and let you most likely drop down to the 19 or 18 you're looking for... Just a thought.

i picked up a 76 spur. ae says 75 is the biggest that'll fit, but i had no problem with the 76. i ran a 17 with that and it was just a tad undergeared. 18 or 19 should be perfect. thanks for the input.

Penguin R/C also makes a great front Bumper for the TC3. And it's less expensive than the BRP product. www.penguinrc.com.

TQ Tony, Congrats at the Nats. Awesome job man. Wish I could have been there. Next year, and we won't forget the Statue of Liberty Beers...

One of you TC3 owners help me..... I've never taken a close look at a real TC3 but if you download my attachment you'll see its a picture of the steering rack. My question is..... are there only 2 ball bearings? and do the bearings contact both sides of the inside of the rack? If so how does one expect the bearings to turn if both inner sides of the rack are turning the bearing in opposite directions? Maybe I'm just not getting the full picture.....

BOOM-
team associated answers that very question on their site. the streering rack is a little wider than the o.d. of the bearings. since the rack will only be loaded on one surface at a time, the bearings will be allowed to rotate. simply put, yes the bearings do work.
