I clean mine with a stiff paint brush, and sometimes a damp cloth on stubborn dirt.

Oil ? I use light oil sparingly on the ball bearings and very rarely, and diff grease (clear stuff) on the diffs.

i ment what oil or grease do you use on the one way, i know about the diffs and bearings but ive never had to clean the one way. i think its got like 1 or 2 racenights on it but its been sitting for like 2 or 3 years.

At Tower, "asc" stands for Associated parts.

Search Tip at Tower Hobbies: For example if you want to find Associated part no. 3885, use advanced search. type "3885" in the "KEYWORD" box, and in PRODUCT CATEGORY keep "ALL CATEGORIES", and "ASSOCIATED" in the MANUFACTURER BOX.

You will end up with this:

Hope this helps.

Opps, sorry, didn't read thoroughly.

I would use silicon diff grease (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LX2765&P=7) or any light oil such as those used for home sewing machines.

Ran today at a larger track than i usually race at indoor on carpet. I was racing stock and out of about 50 racers i placed my Team TC3 6th in the B main qualifying. And ended up placing 4th in the final. Not a bad result i feel, i was using a revenge of the monster pro stock with trinitys 4499 brushes, a LRP 7.1 and Hi-tec flash 4 pro 40mhz radio gear with a KO 713 servo. The car is stock apart from a RPM front full width bumper. I used a Alfa 156 shell in BLUE

What Japanese companies make hop ups for the TC3? I have seen stuff from Square and Tobee Craft. Not that the car needs anything, just looking to make it look different than everyone elses.
