i have also modified my servo mounts to make the servo sit flush with the bottom of the chassis. i still have to try this on the track because i have been running another car the last couple weeks.

Default diff rebuild info

What type/brand of diff balls and rings are you guys using when you rebuild your diffs? Are the bulk package chrome alloy steel balls OK or is it worth it to pay more for carbide tungsten or ceramic nitride? Also, do you recommend replacing the thrust balls and the bolt spring every time? Any advantage buying non-AE rings versus other brands? Thanks.

coolrcdad: I'm not currently using any ceramic nitride diff and thrust balls on my newly built FTTC3...but before I made the switch to the TC3 from and HPI Pro2, i was using Acer's ceramic nitride diff and thrust balls. All I can say is that the ceramic nitride balls are very durable and diff action was on the SPOT!.

The only downside is the cost. Only rebuildt my pro2 diffs once and that was after putting in the ceramic nitride balls. I plan on running them, but not at the moment. Need to save up!

By the way, I run in parking lot tracks. Hope this helps.

Coolrcdad:

Hi,


I run just the Assoc Carbide Tungsten balls in all of my TC3's (7) the cheaper bulk balls are ok if you don't mind rebuilding your diffs alot. I have run ceramic diff balls but it was along time ago...in 1/12th scale. as for the ceramic nitride diff balls I haven't tried them yet. I'm hoping to before the next USTC race.
I mostly replace the thrust balls/washers as they wear out faster than the 3/32 balls.

Thanks

spaz456,
Sorry, I don't get it. What is it that you are doing to this bearing housing that is freeing it up so?

It's not to free it up, it's to fit the batteries when they're slid farther inboard - if we don't cut the bearing support then they don't fit right.

Hey guys, I have a nearly FT tc3. I ran it at socal a few times, and I was wondering about that spool stuff? What is a "spool"? Can someone explain this? Thanks.

O ya, do you guys see anything wrong with double sided sticky taping the transponder to the bumper?

We use Velcro for our transponder so we can move it to another car easily. Works fine. Never had anything come loose, esc and receiver included, using Velcro.

i prefer the velcro as well, much easier removal of parts and the velcro itself

Doesn't using velcro raise the transponder up at least 1/8". with all the cutting and moving doesn't this go the other way?

yeah, my transponder is about 3/32" higher than if I shoe-goo'ed it, but only about 1/32" higher than if I servo-taped it and I can now move it to any of my cars. . .better than $65 per car. . . costs so much!

And I haven't noticed any problems with the transponder. . .
