OB42TC3,
Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get home from the track until late last night. Your probably already on your way here but here's the info on the track:

doors open @ 7:30, racing starts @ 10:00

I'll be the guy right inside the back door with the FT/TC3 kit & the .21 T-Maxx for sale!

I guess I missed you, I was going to try but I was going nuts trying to run two classes. After the Lansing CRL I thought I would have plenty of time. Oh well.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Another good day for the TC3 at the 5th round of the Nats here in Malta.

In the beginners stock T/C class and ex X Ray driver changed to a TC3 and won the class easily.

In stock T/C I won with my MR4, but only after a real ding dong with a very quick TC3. Luckily for me he hit a board and broke it.

In mod T/C son Josh won both finals again, getting into 16 laps each time with his TC3. This makes it 5 wins in 5 rounds. Second, third and fourth too were TC3s.

New since the last round was the cooling fan. Duration was still good despite the fan taking current too. However we had a bit of a laugh at the end of the second final. When I picked the car off the track and had a look to see how the fan was working ....... surprise, surprise - no fan rotor. Someone had hit Josh broadside in the first corner melee, and must have broken the rotor off, so in effect he must have done the whole race without a fan.

I can't say we noticed any difference in performance. In fact his first race time was 16 laps in 5 min. 8sec, and the second one was 16 laps - 5 min. 6 sec.

But all this has strenghtened my argument for putting the fan ahead of the motor, instead of on the side, something I hope to do when the new chassis arrive this week.

Christmas cup meeting next weekend. Should be fun!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

This is Racer's Choice one way bearing grease
for bearings in driveline applications.

FEATURES: Allows one-way bearings to spin freely in one direction yet grip
the shaft positively when spinning in the other direction.
INCLUDES: One small container of bearing grease.

OB42TC3,
Sorry I missed you. I had a great time Sunday! I'm still relitively new to the sport (this is my first indoor season), but I did OK yesterday. I believe there where 52 stock touring car entries, and I ended up qualifing 30th, last in the C main (we had A to F). I placed second in all 3 of my qualifiers, with a best of 24/5:07, and a best lap time of 11.6 backed up by a 11.9. All personal bests on that layout. I ended up finishing 8th in my main, but had the added excitement of holding 3rd for two laps (brief I know, but exciting). I am very happy with the mods I made to the car, I am 100% positive it is capable of greater things, I just need to keep working on holding up my end of the deal. If I don't have a chance to meet you this season, I am sure we will meet up at this coming summer outdoors (Nitro!).

Anyone know of a company that manufactures titanium outdrives for the TC3?

I did two chassis this weekend. I will post pictures tonight. First one is 3.45mm over from the stock battery slot and the second one is 6.45mm over from the stock battery slot. The 6.45mm is just almost touching the drive shaft. I also cut out the Motor area and beveled the edges of the chassis. I was sick this weekend and bored .

proudwinner,
Why would you want titanium out-drives for the tc3? I thought that titanium was soft, so don't soft things bend easier? I'm just gonna stay with aluminum outdrives.

Titanium is stronger than aluminum but nearly as light.

Titanium is comparable to steel, in strength, and to aluminum, in weight. It is slightly brittle, but it takes quite a bit to get it to that state, and it has a good "memory" so that if it is stressed, it will come back to it's original state better than either normal steel or aluminum.

If they weren't pricey, I would think about it, especially for my NTC3
