Well unless you have a stand under that car stand, the air you'd be sucking from the motor would stay there and stay warm. Plus you want to blow the hot air away, so having blowing towards the motor.

jesus, you should have like.....TONS of rear traction, although except for the front battery position. I would move that to the back, when it is in the front of the car, you shift so much weight to the front it is rediculous, also, try 2 degrees rear toe, and 1.5 camber all the way around.

hey guys my friend just bought some Hardcore racing outdrives for his F/R diffs and when he started assembling them he noticed that they dindt fit like the original on the locknut side theres no place for the spring!
Anyways is there a different way of assembling these outdrives compared to the originals?

The original steel and the newer composite drives assemble differently. I figure hardcore copied the steel drives, so if you are use to the composite outdrives of associated thats why your having problems.

Default out drives

like the steel out drives of the associated, the spring should go on the other half of the diff as opposed to the composite outdrives. Peace and happy racing!!!

Guys, I still haven't build my tc3 yet, but I have one question to ask. I bought RD Logics Die-cast aluminum differential cases F/R for TC3. I don't know I should use it or not because its kinda heavy. Is it better to install it or its just for look?

Aku-Man,

I have seen the Rdlogics case and found them to be fairly poor quality, almost a pot-metal casting. They would add more weight, still require you to clean out the bearing journals for propper fit and add almost nothing besides less chance of stripped screws. I should be getting the Warp Speed blueprinted cases later this week and think these are a much better purchase. For $45.00 delivered you get both cases that have been properly cleared journals for free spinning bearings without gauging material with a Dremel tool. They then take the screw holes and ream them out and use steel thread inserts to eliminate stripped plastic screw holes. Will let you know what I think of them when I get them installed.

Aku-Ken, you don't need impregnated steel screw cases for the screws-man that sounded w i c k e d-that is if you know how and when to tighten yo screws.
