You might have put too much diff grease on them or didn't tighten them enough, give that a try.

The diff nut or bolt could be stripped. There would be not pressure when the car is off the ground, but once you set it down there is more pressure. I'd make sure that it is tight and not stripped. One other thing. I know it sounds dumb, but are the tires glued to the rims. I had a JrT that didn't have the tires glued to the rims and I racked my 10 year old brain for days. Ahh the good ol days.

I rebuilt my diffs and now once i have everything back together.. everything seem to turn correctly and when i hit the throttle all for wheels turn. but and soon as i put it down on the ground it wont move. only the shaft moves and not the diff gear.

any ideahs?
did you stay with the metal outdrives or change to the plastic ones. if you switched to plastic you can not run bearings in them only bushings will work

I had that problem last week during a race after a fresh front diff rebuild. I just lost drive to the front wheels. I didn't crash or do anything about a 1/2 lap in. it turned out to be the diff screw was sheared off right at the head. strangest thing I've ever seen.

AE does make a bearing set for the plastic outdrives, just not the same part as the steel oudrives

Don't use the bearings in the plastic outdrives. Even if you get it to work, it will still slip easier than the bushings.

There really isn't enough movement to warrant bearings in the diff anyway.

make sure when you do use bushings you put the correct ones in. there is a set for the steel outdrives and a set for the plastic ones(which are thinner because of the thinner flange). im pretty sure the part # for the plastic bushings is asc3907.

Megatech alu parts?

Does anyone have any experience with the Megatech hop ups for the TC3?

They do have a lot of alu at reasonable prices, but how is the quality? When looking at the pictures on Americas Hobbysenterís webshop the holes in the arm mounts doesnít look good.

I was looking to buy the front alu knuckles and front and rear arm mounts, but now I am not so sure.

What do you think??

I have the arm mounts...they are better than stock..will not break.
The holes look big coz there is also a delrin insert that the arm pins go into..makes for a very smooth suspension. front and rear knuckles are just a good.

Great for outdoor racing...not too stiff like the graphite tub.
Along with the graphite side stiffeners it will do just as well on carpet.

Check out my MSN photo album..I've got some pics of my TC3 w/ IRS and Megatech parts... unfortunately I sold the car..
