Can anyone be SUPER SUPER nice and maybe send the spare metal bushings to my house?
Do you mean the berrings?

I meant the bushing that the kingpin/ball spins on.
The black bushings.

Just put it in a zip lock bag, then envelop then put like a 70 cent or so stamp and that's it!

Now I get it, I was thinking the berring, but the bushing for the C carrier. I need to go and look for them, I bought some but I do not know where they are....

Only one?

ae part number 3975 is the complete berring set for the TC3 Racer kit/RTR kit, and is only $50...

Now for the Duratrax berrings, you say teflon, personally I have never used them, just good old ae berrings in my ae cars(although I have heard many good results with acer).

You can get carbon graphite sheets from Art's Hobby or Penguin R/C
Art's Hobby sells plates in four colors (black, blue, silver, gold) which are very nice but I suggest Penguin R/C plates as they seem stiffer and of better quality.

I cut my chassis with a Dremel, as for upper decks try looking at IRS's website, or warpspeed's, they should have what you are looking for to stiffen the chassis after the cutting.

tc3rookie, bubbles- checkout the thread i made called xtreme chassis. There is a pic of my car that shows how close the batts sit to the drive shaft, this car is extremely well balanced. And besides, it is awesome looking as well. I really don't think you would be dissapointed.

There is not much you need to do to the car, you are getting a Factory Team TC3. Some like to put the rear shock tower in place of the front shock tower(to make the car more responsive entering the corner), you might like a one way for the car(depending on what surface you are going to race on). With the new diff cases(that fit the NTC3 as well), you will want to close the hole(with a screw/setscrew) that is left open(I guess the best discription of it would be, the hole on top closest to the center of the chassis. The other hole does not go all the way through to the gears, but the "center" one does). Make sure that you do not rush through the build, there are a few spots in the manual that are a little unclear, but overall, the build should take you a few hours. If you take your time building the car PERFECT, it should take you about two days to complete.

Happy building!

Chris
Thanks for your answer.
