Actually it does need separation between the chassis and batteries, the graphite chassis can conduct electricity, little but some nonetheless. Most people use electrical tape on the chassis.

Grizz, Jesse from Memphis, how's the racing in Tulsa? On the subject of the battery modification, Barry Baker said he moved his batteries in .100" If you do cut out too much material you can always use something to space them back out so they don't interfere with the drive shaft. Here's an awesome link to several modifications for the tc3.

Hey Jesse, good to hear from you bro...unfortunately RCR's slowed down quite a bit(it's the dirt season now, so most of the locals seem to want to run on Adams Creek's dirt oval), but we're hanging on so far(& hopefully when it get unbearably hot some guys may come back to the nice air-conditioned building we have, ). You can bet I'm not running out in that heat, I like indoors too much.....

Yeah..... I don't really get the point of running aluminum tranny cases either . 'cept for the fact that they look cool .

As for getting "those mothers" off (btw, they're called ball cups) . You can use needle nose pliers, but I prefer to use my ball stud tool that came with my xxx-t. I think that same wrench comes with all Losi cars. I just slide it under the ball cup between the ball stud and lift up the end and 'poof', its off.

You really don't know?

"Twist them off, sparky." - sorry, watched too many Farscape episodes this evening (boy I love Tivo)

either twist them off or use wire cutters or scissors and cut them off. . .:wierd:

I thought that I would show you all what I did to my tc3 chassis this week. I made the 4-corner braces and upper deck out of sheet graphite. I also milled out under the electronics, allowing for zip ties to hold down the receiver and speed control. I also lowered the steering servo to be flush with the bottom of the chassis. Oh yes, I can't forget that I moved the battery inward .

proficar- that looks REALLY good . Nice job.

I think what rdub was asking was how to get the ball cups off after they've been installed on your car. Yeah, I usually get the feeling I'm gonna break something too when I pull em off, but I really like my Losi ball cup wrench, it pretty much eliminates that feeling .

rdub I've also heard of people saying that you can take an old flat head screw driver and put a slot in it with a dremel too to make a ball cup remover tool. I just had a ball stud wrench which I found works so that's why I use it, but I think that a screw driver with a slot would work pretty good too.
