SCWERTA: You might have the screw clamp hexes. It sounds like to me the problem isnt the hex, but its the size of the hole the rims have. Some rims have a smaller hole than the TC3 axle size, so you are tugging on it for sure the problem is the hex, and the whole time its the damn rim. Try wobbling it back and forth, seeing if you can twist it off. You can try taking the arms off of the car one by one, letting you hold the arm and tire in your hand, minus the rest of the car. Try holding the rim with one half of it on the edge of a workbench, the other half in your hand, and hitting the axle with a hammer to tap the axle through the rim. Of course, the nut would be off of the axle during this procedure. If you hit it just right, the axle will fall to the floor with the rim in your hand. There should be no damage to the axle or the rim, but maybe to your hand, if you arent careful. From then on, if this is the case, i would make sure your rims have appropriate sized holes for the axles. Usually japanese spec rims (metric) have 4mm holes, these are too small for the TC3. Hope this helps.

Jeff, why do you want to switch from the CGM to the TC3?

My Yok has been shelved for a while because of issues I was having running the SSG chassis on carpet... I can tell you this though, when it hooked up it was faster than the TC3...

Although I haven't gotten to run the CGM yet just from looking the Yok and AE are so similiar... I'm about to convert my SSG over the CGM and I'll decide later on which becomes my main and backup cars...

I ran both of them.....equally good.....you need to trim the rotating mass CGM (lightened center shaft, lightened output shafts, CVDs and the wheel axles ) though to match the acceleration of the TC3.

Default My IRS TC3

Here is my IRS TC3.
The most advantages of this chassic kit is adjustable the hardness of the chassic by installing "Side-bar" and "Middle-bar".
There are few combinations for your choice especially on a low traction track.

I m from Hong Kong , nice to meet you guys.

Default Tires for asphalt

I was just wondering what the best (longest-lasting) tires are for concrete running. I am not a racer, yet I do have that kit.

Anyway, which tire/wheel should I have for the most usage for the least amount of money?

Thanks,

All I can say is enjoy the out of the box kit from now. After a while you really handle the car better then that's the proper time for you to hop-up the car... just my $.02 opinion...

i agree, learn to work with the car, change setups and get it dialed in. when your car is totally dialed and cant go any faster, then is the time to upgrade. also, remember, hopups are things to improve your car, not the look
