or just use the Niftech dog bones, they have flat swivel drive pins, instead of the round pins

NIftech-good stuff-but you wont find anything more expensive!! Except his diff balls and-beleive it or not his CVD's. They really arent anymore than the Ti Racing or any other high end make!!!



What ever happend to the carbon fiber TC3 chassis that was being talked about a few weeks ago. Is it still a go?

Default Carbon fiber tc3

If you are talking about the warpspeed one, here is the info I got from them yesterday.

The WARPSPEED DEMON retails for $250.00 US Dollars, and street cost is about
$190.00 US Dollars. The kit includes chassis, upper plate, stand-offs, battery
brace and motor mounts.
The chassis was released about a week ago. We are sold out. Next batch should
be sometime in February. We are taking pre-orders at this time.
If you would like to place an order, please email me.
Here is a new picture.

ok i sketched this picture in about 2 minutes but maybe it will make the idea clearer. i guess it's an insert for the notch in the outdrive

it's a very good idea.

It would breath some life into somewhat old outdrives. . .

the pre-assembled niftech cvd's cost $40 pair, but if you think of how much longer the outdrives will last, it should be cost effective in the long run?

and the complete shaft assembly
Includes:

1. 2 drive shafts
2. 2 axles
3. 2 aluminum lock nuts
4. 2 crush sleeves
5. 2 spirol&tm; roll pins
6. 2 couplers
7. 6 axle shims

** SWD vesrions come pre-assembled with Niftech's #2350-SWD Precision Swiveling Flat Drive Pin Assembly for Dog Bone Axles. Helps prevent damage to aluminum outdrives.

Complete CV Assembly for Associated TC3 Sedan with SWD Ends Installed (#2308-SWD)
$69.95 / pr

or get two sets of just the swivel ends for do-it-yourself installation at $20

Default Pin Cushions!

Hello and Greetings form Manila,Philippines!

YOu could make custom pin cushions yourself, I did!

Use the plastic tubing of your regular "BIC" ballpen heat the end part (a bit) and insert on the PIN then cut! Just be sure there is no more ink or it will be messy!!! hehehehehe

YOu could also place a little CA and you may have to trim the plastic tubing a little! (but that's fun to do!)

doing it won't cost your $2.

Peace to all men!!!!

Default Warpspeed carbon fiber chassis

How is this different from the one made by IRS, better materials? Thicker? I is true that the batteries on the right side (like TB Evo II)?

I heard the Niftech ones are not that good because the pins snap off. Just spend the $4.00 and get the IRS pin cusions, problem solved.

Default fried motor

Hey guys i got the tc3 rtr and i fried my stock motor today. I think its because i have a gp 3300 batt pack in it. With the stock esc i cannot use a modified motor in it. Is there a stock 17 to 19 motor out there i can use with this batt pack?

It probably was not the pack in and of itself. With a higher capacity batt, you tend to drive longer than 5 minutes because you can. Stock motors are not designed to run for much longer than 5 minutes. Their advanced timing and a lack of bearings makes them run quite hot.

If your intention is not racing (you didn't indicate), maybe try a 19t chameleon. Even then, you have to be careful of the motor's temp.

have any of you guys heard of having your diff and pinion gears machined to match perfectly? a guy at my lhs was talking to a guy that said some of the factory guys have had their diff and pinions machined to match perfectly, he said they had a fan blowing on the car from 15 ft away and the drivtrain was slightly spinning. sounds nice!
