Here is my setup from the novak race....


FRont end... 70 #3 Piston's . Purple spring.. f block -1 ant dive in the car .. 4 degree's caster.. .055 front sway bar.. Rear shock tower on the front, shocks mounted in the body mount hole and the inside on the arm.. droop was @ 5, 1 deg camber 4.5 mm ride height .. Camber link long and up

I also space my rack with a .080 fiber glass and the silver ball for a ackerman change from stock..

Rear End.. I ran 50 #3 piston's . Purple spring , Shock Mounted in the middle hole and outside of arm . F block instead of the R block for lower pin's .. 3+2 Rear toe block with losi 0's Camber link long and down.. no rear sway. Ride Height 5 MM .. 1.5 deg camber

Batteries where forward and wheel base was short.

I ran the protoform Alpha 2.0

I think that is all.. Hope this helps...

oops almost forgot tires were 2.27 size and double pink / Orange in the front and Double pink Jaco's in the rear...

Davew,
keep the pics coming and i will study them real closely,, at first i thought the guy might have made the mod too close to the center , the bars are really close to the shaft ,, i had to bend them more wrap around closer over the cells to just barely mis the saft,, with the bent straight up word in a normal L shape they was hitting the shaft, with deans bars. but if you would when you can a pic with car in race ready battery setup would be great ,, this is my second tc3 and kinda want to build it up for the daytona race in march,, and leave my other one set up for carpet.
good luck at the birds ,, wish i could be there this year but do to several reason i not goin to be able this year.

DaveW your chassis work looks nice. I bought when done for me and it works great. I think mine was milled 7mm closer to the driveshaft. Batteries fit and are close to the driveshaft but not touching. I have a nice thick piece of foam going along the outside of the chassis so my packs fit in nice and tight and has a really thin piece of lexan donw the chassis on the shaft side. If you would like a pic of it I can take some and then email them to you.

tc3rookie: you are using a short wheelbase aren't you? because that will give a tighter turning circle

Hey, Mike. How's it going? Quick question. What is that you used to shield the batteries from the center webbing?

My apologies. I didnt specify what I was asking for. Im lookin for a good stock rubber setup that can work indoors and outdoors. Also, do the new Tamiya shocks fit the TC3 or just the Evo 3

I bought a Losi Body for my car and it had a lot of spare lexan so I cut it out and laid it in the chassis and then cut it so that it would not stick above the center webing. It is secured to the Webing by Double Sided Servo Tape.

The TRF shocks DO fit, but you have to use the appropriate hardware to mount them to the chassis.

Setup for Asphalt?

The lexan does its job. I hav enot had to replace it and it keeps the battery from touching the Shaft
