Yes I care for them just like steel ones....Clean them with motor cleaner or lighter fluid and oil them with light oil.

The ones that RC4less.com sells are a higher quality bearing than the acers. They are also steel shielded which spin more free than the teflon or poly sealed ones. Bruce at RC4less stands behind everything he sells as well.

Get this:

One of our better drivers was having durability issues with his Yok SD. He just wan't consistent with the car. So the Yok is dropped for a TC3 from CML.

Now he's never reaced a TC3 before as he is an ex Team Schumacher driver. They build a TC3 Factory Team, with kit settings and guess what?

He whips everyone convincingly, but not only that, put's in one of the most consistent runs I have ever witnessed. Fastest Lap - 9.722 Average lap 9.954 - a separation of just over 2 tenths of a second!!! That's better than he's ever done.

The best seperation I've ever achieved (with a Yok SD) is 4 tenths.

since we were talking i also wish to say that i miss driving my TC3 a lot,now driving xray and it's just a [email protected] to set.it's no where near the speeds that i can achieve with the TC3,and there are a coupla lines that are inaccesible to all my cars except the good old TC.
Now would someone sponsor me the necessary electronics to run the TC3...????

MAB-

Experiment with the link locations. My car this last weekend had too much traction in the rear (foam on carpet) I ended up about the same spring rates you are running, but my rear link was the outside upper hole on the rear with .060 spacers under the shock tower. Purple springs in the rear, with standard swaybar in rear, .078 up front.

Before, with the 35# springs on the rear, all the way out, I had traction roll problems. the link location with slightly softer springs, but with the sway bar seemed to help.

Can someone Please tell me what is the final drive ratio of the TC3? Do you get this ratio by dividing the diff gear over the shaft gear? Thanks

the internal ratio of at TC3 is a 2.50 your gear ratio is the spur (98) diveded by Pinion (35) = 2.80 now you times that by the internal ratio 2.5 and that is your final drive ratio 2.80 * 2.5 = 7.00

Well myself for one LOVE driving my TC3, still dialed, and still fast. I feel as though I have been driving better over the past few month's as well as figured out my setup more, and more. The car just seems to be going faster and faster. My race results for this weekend...

1st qualifier: last place, 13/5:02.xx(striped out the motor nuts in the bottom of the chassis, had to change those at the last second...)

2nd qualifier: first place, 27/5:06.xx(started fourth or so, and by the second turn in the lead! Finished a lap and a half ahead of second place)

Main: first place, 27/5:08.xx(little bit slower than my second qualifier because of the traction roll, and some lap trafficers in my way. Finished a lap ahead of second place)

Which ones? There's 4 different choices that IRS has. There's the opaque springs with have a rating of 20.5 lbs. The gold springs that have a 24 lb. rating. The silver springs that have a 27.5 lb rating. And the Black springs which have a 32.5 lb. rating. And if anybody cared to compare them with the AE springs the list is:

AE Green 12 lbs.
AE Silver 14.5 lbs.
AE Blue 17 lbs.
AE Gold 19.5 lbs.
IRS Opaque 20.5 lbs.
AE Red 22 lbs.
IRS Gold 24 lbs.
AE Copper 25 lbs.
IRS Silver 27.5 lbs.
AE Purple 30 lbs.
IRS Black 32.5 lbs.
AE Yellow 35 lbs.
AE White 40 lbs.
