The 3076 should be the right part number. At least it has the right description.

I have not seen the polished hinge pins for the TC3. To be honest, I forgot about them. A lot of people have purchased the BRP kit. Most have polished them up.

Question for all you drivetrain experts. My drivetrain seems to roll more free if I leave the screws holding the bearing cap (in front of teh spur) loose. Is this an indication of a tweaked chassis?

No, it's just when you squash a bearing, it won't rotate as free. Just snug up the screws, don't put any muscle into it. Same with the diff cases.

If you relieve the edges of the bearing holes you can tighten up the bearing cap and the diff cases and yet still have a free rolling tranny. Makes a huge difference in rolling resistance. ALso gear mesh is absolutely critical.

When you use the F, R-3-0 and the Losi hubs on the back of the TC3, where do you put the F block, and the R-3-0 block? And wut Losi hubs do you use, is it for the Losi XXX-S?

I tried the F Block, but it needed too much precise milling to get it to sit even from left to right. It didn't pop right in like a direct replacement.

Currently, I have the R+2+2 block with Losi XXX-S hubs (1 deg) installed backward to get 1 deg per wheel of rear toe in.

I also had to run the car short because the Losi hub uses a vertical ballstud and that creates an angle with the camber links.

Does AE have the new FT shaft on the website yet? I went to the site last night, but couldn't find it... It wasn't listed with the other FT parts either.

Installed the hubs reversed from left to right. No way to mount them upside down.

I got the new shaft from Stormer for $6.25

you will just have to take out a little at a time and refit and check the freeness of the bearing.

for the diff cases just take out some of the side wall where the bearing site and then put the diff back in the case and if it falls out just by turning it upside down then your set. do this for top and bottom halfs of the case.

Dingus:

Hi,

you should try the front "F" block. ( the one the goes behind the transmission case) in place of the "R" block in the rear. you will need to shim it up about .030" ( I use the motor screw washers and cut some off so it will line up with the holes). I run the R+2+0 block in the rear . I haven't tried the Losi rear hub carriers yet....... Losi parts are hard to come by where I live.

Thanks
