So the servo would center after steering right, but not after steering left. Try this and see if it works. I have a feeling that your transmitter isn't working properly. You could also try the transmitter in a different car and see if it works than.
racerdx6 - i'll try this...i have been running a stock TC3 which i intend to convert to rally specs once i get my FTTC3 running...i will also try to change the steering parts from this stock TC3 to the FT as the stock one doesnt exhibit this issue

The only difference between the FT and Racer kit steering rack is the bearings (FT) and bushings (racer) ... everything else is exactly the same.

Did you guys know there is an editable version of the TC3 setup sheet here- http://www.msra-racing.com/features/setupsheets.htm

It's in Acrobat and looks just like the regular one, but you input your setings and then print it!!! Just like the pros- lol

Default White plastic ring gears and pinion gears

Has anyone used the white plastic ring gears and pinion gears? I can't get them to fit in the differential housing. Anyone else having the same problem. Are there new diff housing for the white gears?

Hi all, new user here. Got a question, I've been using the Novak SS system for several weeks now. I've been having a hard time trying to get rid of an off power push. My setup has gotten a little off the beaten path, but it is driveable.
Just wondering what some of you have done to over come this. I feel like anyone with the SS in a TC3 would have the same problem.
Thanks

If your battery is in the rear position, the easiest way to get rid of the off power push is to move it forward. Otherwise, I would mess with my suspension in order for the car to throw more weight toward the front of the car when I let off the throttle.

I have heard of 1 person who had the same problem as you are having. The only thing that we could come up with is that his car had the original gear box pieces. If you have the new ones that are the same as the NTC3 then I am not sure exactly what the problem is. Where does it rub, the gear itself? Curious minds want to know.

I have an IRS chassis FTTC3 and need some help in setting up the kit. The car seems to hookup during off power and spin out during on power.If I practically slows the car it doesnt hookup. I was thinking of putting in heavier weight oil as it seems that weight transfer from front/rear is very fast.Does putting heavier oil slow the weight transfer?If so what is a good weight to start off with?I have from 30-70wt oil in my pit box.

My setup:-

Aspalt medium to high traction

Front
35 shore GRP foam
30wt oil
red spring
1.5deg camber
4deg caster/no kickup
0deg toe-out
camber links long(inner/upper)
balldiff/steel diff halves
aluminium CVD/pin cushion
5mm ride height
droop 6 on Assoc. gauge

Rear
35 shore GRP foam
30wt oil
blue spring
1.5deg camber
3deg toe in
camber links long(inner/upper)
balldiff/plastic diff halves
composite bones
battery upfront
5.5mm ride height
droop 4 on Assoc. gauge


Once I get the car running right I already have a locked diff and also a one way to try which is better for my local track.If anything is missing from my setup please do let me know so that you guys can help me better

Thanks
