Default By the way...

... the pictured car won the last round of the regional Swiss championship. Granted, not the worlds, but not your average club race either. All these mods (tweak rods, motor fan) do work, believe me!

Later yall

Hi Guys,

I received my TC3 FT and bought as well the rear shock tower to put it in front,
the problem is when I use the upper second hole of the shock tower with the new external hole of the arm, on the right side I can't put my shock. On the left side no problem.

As the hub carrier is assymetrical, do I have to trim the right hub carrier ?

thank you for your help

ralf if your talking about the shock collar hitting the c-hub then you have to dremel the hub just a little at a time and recheck. i had the same problem on both sides when i fitted the rear shock tower up front with the new arms.

those threaded rods look like they might be a nice feature to have but are they really very effective in adjusting tweak?

I just scanned the last couple pages of this thread.....

I though only the Losi car has fundamental flaws from the factory?

Man-you guys take the smallest problems and b**ch about then night and day.Turn off the computer and go race.I have had my TC3 from the beginning and yes it had uneven toe in the beginning.Then after dealing with it for a while I found a fix.No big deal.Its not the end of the world.Look at the Losi car,you cant have good brakes without the belt slipping-sounds like premature wear to me? And yes I had one-fine car.The purpose for these boards are for racers to get together and figured their cars-so we can go faster then the competition,not complain about it.The TC3 is the best car out in my opinion.

And I have a NTC3 and it has the stock gas tank and runs fine.Send me a plane ticket and I will bring it and show you.
Now go out and race please...

Default Binding

I have an FTTC3. I have just finished building the front and rear gearboxes with the new aluminium shaft. The rest of the parts are not fitted yet. I am very sure that I shimmed the transmission as what the instruction manual stated - yet the transmission is binding. Do I place the shims in a different position as stated in the mauual? What else can I do? Thanks a lot.

Nevermind.... found it in one of the pages earlier.

I have been running a TC3 for a year, I have had two kits so far, and in both of them I shimmed the tranny with only two, or one shim, the manual says three which I believe it stresses the bevel gears.... I might be wrong but it works for me

Looks like you need more help than this web site can give. I regularly change out plastic parts because they wear out!!!! When I told you about having problems with the Hudy set up a while back, I was talking about a problem I had when I was driving a different car. I was not using that piece of equipment on my tc3.

TPhalen, just out of curiosity, and I'm not sure if you can tell me this, but on average, how many of a car do you sell? Like the TC3 for example, you say the mold has put out millions of parts, I'm not sure if you are exagerating here, but I'm going to say you aren't, how many of those go into kits and how many are packaged individually? I'm just interested is all.

My TC3 should be here tomorrow, I'm looking forward to it.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

SPEEDO. So that's what you're replacing the Yoke with. Good choice. I still run my Yoke and love it, but son Josh won't change his TC3 for anything. And who can blame him with 4 wins in 4 rounds of the Nats so far.

TONY. One of your arguments really hit me. It happens to me all the time. Just because I import certain items people think that the manufacturer gives me better ones than I supply to everybody else. Not so much with car kits but with motors and cells in particular, and i've even had accusations that Novak give us special speedos. I wish!

Actually I do have a slight advantage having a shop, and that's where cells are concerned. If I get asked to assemble a couple of packs for a customer and happen to come across a pack with really blinding figures, then i put that pack away for our own use. But the difference between the best and the worst of any company's top cells is so minimal that it doesn't really make so much difference. Certainly I'm not a good enough driver to notice it.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
