Anybody know a place that sells that K Factory steering rack for the TC3? Haven't been able to find one. Might just be looking in the wrong places...

sure, you might also want to try, going to the R+2-0, and change the ride height, those are two things that I have done since then., you may not need to if you are on a high traction track though.

Smooth the car out. Might take away a little steering.

Hi, I'm new to R/C racing and I was wondering if you guys could tell me how to get my TC3 to beat those darn EVO3 cars at my local race track? The EVO3s just keep on beating the TC3 guys over and over and over!!!! It's so bothersome to me....

BTW- could anyone confirm this story?- I heard the TC3 was originally named something else but after months of testing they found the car always breaks a front arm so the nicknamed it the TriCycle 3 wheeler, then they shortened that up to TC3.



I took my happy pill today.

Default TC3 CVD and Outdrive Question

Hey guys (and gals), I am looking to lighten my TC3 drive train a little. I am currently running the steel outdrives (not sure why) and a mixed set of old dogbones. I am looking at the aluminum outdrives (lite drives) and composites dogbones with pincushions from IRS. I run stock with foams on carpet. What are you opitions of this setup? Also, any input on the IRS aluminum input shafts.

Thanks all,
John

since you run stock go withthe Composite withpin cushions!
IRS are great! The Input shafts are a must, while your there getthe spur gear holder.

and the IRS lite drives are light, but the ones from RC-SQUARE are lighter and made from composite plastic!

Peace and happy racing!

Thanks Lem2 ...... I'll look into the other drives. I am already running the spur gear holder. I bought a used car and it came with it.

IRS input shafts are real nice, much lighter than the stock ones and not too hard on the wallet. As far as outdrives I don't know if you can beat the molded associated outdrives? Five bucks for 2 sets and they are as light if not lighter than any aluminum outdrives. As far as the dog bones I have only ever ran the FT blue aluminum bones. I want to try the composite bones, just haven't gotten around to it. My 2 pennies.
