Yep, thanks for the info! You would not believe what we have to go through to send stuff here, corrupt customs, red tape and so on. Like anything from the U.S. mailed in via the Postal system will surely be tagged, to be taxed stupendously! hehehehehe
UPS and FedEx is a lot better. But expensive.
How come KThobbies IRS parts are cheaper than the IRS website?
Hey, any news on the new IRS Chassis? I heard they were developing it?
Peace and Happy Racing!

if i'm not mistaken,a rear spool will induce oversteering.

I know Ive seen on forums that others run em alot hotter but for what I do reliability is more important. thats just what my little experience has taught me.
The motor was smoking real bad

Default YOK shaft

A buddy of mine has both the Yok SD and the TC3 and he just told me that the Yok shaft is 152mm pin to pin and the TC3 170mm pin to pin. That's a pretty big difference.


Please let me know otherwise.

Mike

I don't know the exact difference, but in essense I've been told the same thing by the local guys who have the Yok(some of which also had a TC3), so they wouldn't be interchangable....

You could pop the pins put of the Yok and get a longer piece of graphite if your looking for weight savings.

Default TC3 mods

Hello does anyone have a template and instructions for the nitro tc3 upgrade I would like to try it what does it do o the car


I have ran irs spool if i used the stock cvds it would chip the outdries making it look like a 10 year old outdrive in one weekend
but if you use the pin cushions (irs 147 ) they last alot longer

Wow i raced this weekend and the TC3 was working great
its been in storage for to long Snowbirds if that gives you any idea . I put Electrics in it and took it to the track didnt have time to noch all the dust off of it LOL , Man I was so rusty in the 2nd heat i tried to hit a turn marshall so could say i hit everything.I cant believe i TQ . I had only one decent run with 4 mistakes
I guess i was less rusty than everyone else . The main was wild i was gone lead the whole race with the dust buster in tow it was nice to beat all the yok sds and barracudas the tc3 is still a great car if it ant broke dont fix it all i replaced the whole night was one ball cup that had some play the yoks had a bad night broke alot of them i felt sorry for the guys I dont think there is a ft spindle left in TN that is not on a car I ran my foams from last yr 57mm yeah there small but man the car ran good at 5mm ride hieght its was fast through the corners I could carry a ton of speed I had to dial out alot of steering the car had 47% it took alot of room to turn it aroung in low speeds but on the trottle it was on a rail

Does anyone else have that problem if it is one

Thanks all if anyone needs my setup for carpet email me i have a easy to drive rolling throttle setup that works well for me on foams thanks Stan

Default Diff Rebuild...

I'm getting ready to rebuild my diff in my TC3 for the 1st time. Anybody have any thoughts on Cermic bearings, and outdrives. I'd like to replace the workings inside both front and rear.
Right now, I'm thinking about getting the FT blue alum. outdrives w/ceramic balls. and using the standard diff rings.

Any thoughts/opinions would be great.

What kind of hubs are you running now? I would just run a lightweight hub if your building it strictly for racing, if your worried about wearing out parts then go with the aluminum. the difference between the old steel diffs and the lightweight is 28 grams for steel compared to 12 grams for the light style. Im not sure what an aluminum one would weigh. Maybe someone can weigh one for ya.

Default rear bumper

the rear bumper that sticks out the back of the car seems pretty pointless in racing w/o reverse, couldn't i just dremel off the bumper part and leave the bit that supports the diff case and rear thing that the hinge pins go into with no ill effects?

It's useless if you're hitting things, but it's useful for when you're getting nerfed (hit from behind).

The NTC3 does not have a bumper that extends rearward and, in some cases, I wish it did. I've been taken out by getting nerfed (some numbnuts who didn't think he had to brake for a hairpin) and getting the rear toe-link bent.

In any case, it doesn't weigh much, doesn't interfere with anything. I'd leave it in.

This is like comparing Apples to Oranges. Yes, the Yokomo SD drive shaft is shorter than the TC3's drive shaft. But the Yokomo drive shaft FOR the TC3 is the correct length.

Speedy:
I'm currently running the old "steel" diffs. I just installed new IRS "Big dawg" bones taht have the pin-coushings. I'm not the greatest driver and do skim a wall once in a while. Will the lightweight Durlin otudrives stand-up to that? (I don't SLAM the wall..just once in a while...graze it) Also wondering if the ceramic diff balls are with the extra cash.

Bubblestc3,

Are you referring to Yok part # SD-644G?
