Ouch! I think I'll get the Associated graphite chassis and modify it. What would you guys reccomend for a pinion size with the Monster Horsepower stock motor in the tc3 with a 72t 48 pitch spur gear?

Racerdx6: try a 25 tooth pinion. This will give you a 7.2 final ratio and should put you in the ballpark--Al

If the stright is any where around a 100' 28t pinion is what I like.

I never really had any luck with all the shock tower mods, or the spool. I always went back to the diffs and original shock towers, with the top of the shocks all the way out, and the bottom of the shocks in their original positions. The car worked great with that set-up. The only mods I was very happy with where the NTC3 steering, and the battery relocating. I think they both worked very well. It's really all subjective though, as I only ran indoor on carpet with foams, almost always in the stock motor class.

NTC3NUT - the steering mod...do you think it improved your handling or do you like it because you don't have to worry about it binding?

Thats over gearing, I would go with big al at 25, thats a pretty good one.

I used a 23t today with pretty good results. The track is not the biggest one and it seems to work well.

Both really, I had several other racers try it after the mod, even a factory driver, and they all thought it handled better (the factory driver had it done to his TC3 the next time I saw him). I think the biggest improvement was straight line centering, no slop at all. As far as maintenance goes, it is 100% better, there really is no maintenance.

For those of you talking about gearing don't forget to take into account of the different rpm's the motors have. That could the reason for the different selections.

NTC3NUT - does the steering mod increase the steering travel from the stock rack?

I'll check it tonight vs. a stock set-up. I don't know if the rack in itself increases throw, but I know installing the Losi front C-hubs & steering knuckles does. Alot. The wheels will turn in far enough to hit on the bottom shock screws, they almost look like they're capable of going completely straight across, know what I mean. I had to dial out a huge amount of travel after I installed these parts.

I agree, after changing to LOSI knuckles (not c-hubs) I had to trim down my dualrate to 80%. I think partly because the arms on the losi hubs are shorter than the Associated ones. One thing i've noticed after changing to Losi knuckles is the presence of bump steer. I have yet to try putting on spacers.

Did not notice that the losi knuckles were shorter when i changed to them. Where would you want to put the spacers? Please let us know how you did it. thanks
