hey guys, I got a question.
I'm needing to get a motor mount type of dealy for a tc3 that I have.
I'm making the chassis, so it's a flat bottom, and I need something to hold the bearing that is on the rear shaft, in front of the spur, and also need something to mount a motor.
I saw that Alex Racing has a motor mount that will work, and will probably go with it.
but it's a little expensive @ $50., so am I'm looking for alternatives.
here's a pic


now I just need something to hold the bearing, any suggestions?

Try Warpspeed Racing or IRS they have a motor mount and bearing holder in one. Just dunno if you can buy it separately. No harm in trying!!! Goodluck withthe project and keep us posted!!!

More eye candy.

I only had a handful of the turned down screws so I am not done yet. I am ordering more so all the screws on the car will match.

Default TC3

Ray,

Why did you buy a new TC3? I thought you used to run one before your XRay.

My old FTTc3 was pieced together from many older cars. I sold it cheap to a Novice at our track. He said it was awesome to drive!!! I thinkk he went a few laps faster with it. not 100% sure though. It also had the prototype Graphite chassis I did all the testing on for the Milliing and some nice hop-ups (Losi parts, IRS Big Dawg bones, etc...). Hes happy.

This FTTC3 is brand new-bought from KTHobbies. The only option part I want for it are some Ceramic bearings for the outdrives and input shafts.

Are you going to continue using the Xray as well?

Yes-I still stand by the belief that the Tc3 is the quickest Sedan out there-period. but-its not the easiest to drive for some reason. Even when its "dialed" you'll rip on the throttle sometimes and push out-or you'll set-up for a corner the same way you did 20 other laps and stuff it into the apex. Its just like that. The Xray is just so smooth and consistent. If it only had a shaft drive that worked as well as the TC3. The Shaft in the SD and the EvoIII are all Slower feeling than a belt car to be honest!!! So-yes-I am keeping both for awhile now.

I am trying a brand new FTTC3 to see if they are more consistent when they are brand new.

Ray: The TC-3 drivetrain is what makes it so devilishly unpredictable. Wait 'till the indoor season gets in full swing, Pulfer, Rob, and I will prove that a TC-3 is quick, but not quickest.

Use a 1/12 motor mount and a bearing mount from a NTC3.

Yup-my SD evoIII was such a dog out of the hole-but it made it so easy to drive. I wathed the Yok last race and it didnt impress me much. Even with a great driver wheeling it.

I think everone should keep a Tc3 in the garage because you can always count on it to be fast. And an Xray. The two best Sednas I have driven by far this last year. And I drove and tested a LOT of them!!!!

DualBL, contact Victor at Warpspeed Racing, [email protected]

He has a motor mount for his Demon chassis kit that should work for your situation. Email him and i'm sure he'll do what he can .
