racerdx6, Throw on the new RPM high impact bumper ($9), and trinity foam bumper ($4). They will help to bulletproof the front end. I've nailed the pipes a few times thinking I must have broke something, but nothing happened. From the looks of the bottom of the bumper (scrapes, cuts, a little deformed) its doing its job well.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'm trying a set-up Josh posted on his Trinity thread, I'll let you know how it goes. I may be in Cleveland, but probably as a spectator.

before i really started to wanna get into racing i had converted my tc-3 to a rally car. it was loads of fun. but eventually i started to miss having the 5.5mm of ground clearance and that street racer look . but while it was still in a rally car form i was using the stock bumper with no rise so its real scraped and bent. so i was looking into the rpm bumper. in the description it said wide. so does that mean that its wider than the stock bumper. i hope so. and i really screwed up my foam bumper too. so i was already looking into getting the trinity one . what are some other things that would help bullit proof the front end. thanks

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Another TC3 day at the Nationals.

1st in stock - Noel Agius. TC3.

1st in mod - Josh Anastasi. TC3.

Actually 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in mod were also TC3s.

You could say it was a good day!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

I run the Airtronics 94757 digital servo in my TC3. I've also ran the 94257. Another one to try is the 94357. All are good servos with speed and plenty of torque for touring cars. Don't skimp on a servo.. spend the money. It's a good "tuning" upgrade as well as a good investment.

Default Servos

I have used all the digitals from Airtronics 755, 757 and Futaba 9450. I prefer the air 755

Thanks! I'm checking out that "Airtronics 94757Z Servo Digital Servo Z" at Tower Hobbies right now. Looks very nice! Coreless, too. I was going to change my ESC, receiver, and radio first - but not sure now. I'm not planning on racing on a regular basis until next Spring, since the season here is about over. I'm thinking along the lines of the M8, Xxtra Receiver, and the GT7. I figure, might as well do it right the first time. Coming from a diecast collecting background, this RC hobby (Sport) is a true money pit! But what fun!!

I recently ordered a 625MG for my truck, but got this email instead. Pretty cool and great prices if you want Hitec or Futaba. No shipping or tax. Tough to beat.


Dennis,

Your order was delayed because of stock on the HS-625MG Servos, what we decided to do though is upgrade you to the digital version free of charge, it is the HS-5625MG servo. You should receive it anytime now. If you have any other questions please let us know. Thanks!
