You can rid your body of a "permanent" crease by heating it with a heat gun or hair dryer and pressig out the crease. Might want to add a layer of shoo goo to the back of te crease after to prevent it from becoming a tear.

I know different body styles have different effects on handling. They are aerodynamically different. I'm just saying a crease in the hood isn't going to effect the over all handling of the car. Unless it is a huge crease. Like in nascar if the body gets messed up your race is pretty much over. In r/c that effect is pretty minimal.

Lightbulb I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT

YO I have seen the light. just ran my TC3 for the first time. I have had the car three years but never ran it . bought it for 100 green backs. and put it on the shelf. only reason I bought it was because it was such a good deal. full graphite kit lots of blue stuff and extra parts ( cant pass that up)
I ran it at a local parking lot race and wow it works a lot better than my losi with less work to get it there. so now the losi is on the shelf.
so tell me how far back do I need to go to find out about the losi front and rear hub conversion's ? and is it worth the conversion for parking lot or is it only good for carpet

Default Re: I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT

Hey guys. Can anyone help me out with Losi front ends on a TC3. I know this question has maybe been asked before but if you can help thanks a lot. My car is fine and hooked up but racing at this new track I need heaps of steering throw. Itís so tight and I just donít have enough low speed steering.

So my question is does Losi 0,2 and 4 front block have the same castor angle as the AE ones and is it a easy replacement and no other parts needed for the swap.

Thanks in Advance

Coxy.

How funny just saw the post below about the same thing as what I am asking.

Coxy.

try running the losi 6 degree castor blocks, i found they give a good amount of steering, also run the front F+2 block which in effect gives 8 degrees of castor,and alot of steering. Also try a rear sway bar, shorter wheelbase, more front sauce, maybe even a front spool if you need alot of onpower steering.

Default New Transmission Gears

Has anybody tried the new white colored TC3 transmission gears? Do they run any smoother then the old material gears when new?

Where have you seen those..? got some pics or a link to them?
If they are white..I'm guessing they are made of delrin and probably will run smoother than the original gears.

Somebody posted pics of white TC3 gears from the nitro worlds. I never knew if they were mass produced or not. i assumed the factory had produced them to test.

i saw an associated driver at my "local" (3 hr drive, lol) track using them, didnt get a chance to ask him what he thinks of them, they look like they are made of delrin.

I believe they are replacing the old gear and are shipping out now.
