I don't usually buy Dynamite's stuff but their Red Seal bearings are fine and inexpensive.

Also check www.bocabearings.com Their greenseal bearings are among the best on the market and should be a little less than the AE set.

Gump0220:

You may commonly see self-built packs (saddle pack) at your local track but the manufacture built stick packs will work fine. The battery brace for the TC3 is a flip/flop bar engineered to work with various battery configurations.

Using the stock spur, 72 tooth 48 pitch, use 25-30 pinions. Start out with the 25 tooth pinion.

if youre gonna assemble your own batteries, try them in a saddle pack configuration. this way, you can also tune the weight balance of the batteries in 3 ways depending on where you put the foam spacer - in front, rear, or in the middle of the saddle pack. but stick packs and side by side are also fine.

Marvi: Well put, I should have explained the PROS and CONS of the different battery form factors for weight distribution. It does affect the setup and performance of the car. I would reflect upon the pro-racers setup sheets for addition insight and purpose.

Anyone use the center one way on carpet with rubber tires. What are your thoughts?
