Default IRS-TC3

Any word on their new Aftermarket chassis?
Heard that there was one on the works?

Just asking / interested on howit will look like.


R10 sa a conversion kit forthe IRS, but hoing directly willbe cheaper! But before you set your eyes on the IRS, look also for the BMI/Penguin ans WarpSpeed!!!

Mine resembles the IRS because the side braces protect the electronic really well...

Default Damn TC3 steering setup!

Hi all,

I reinstalled new ballcups last night, reset the turnbuckle links to manual settings, then checked toe/camber etc.. with my Integy setup and had to reset the steering to zero subtrim.

I generally set steering by cebntering the rack by the saver screw then adjust l/r turnbuckles. Thsi should get me subtrim of 0 or close to it. I started the race at subtrim +2R but after 2 laps the car pulled buig time left to maybe another corerection of +5R.

What can I do to recenter/adjust better

The ballcups were new RPM shorties. The turnbuckle was slightly bent but I am not sure why this would effect the steering after the initial setup.

Servo mount (tighten) - GOOD
Servo saver (lossen) - Need to check but I think it is tight
servo hon (cracked or the patten inside ) - Need to check
front arm pins (bended) - New hinge pins
streeing block (cracked) - NEW

My feel is the big tower give some stable feel (may feel push).
For mod. motor 8,9 turns , it may good.
But for stock motor , it may understree.

Anyway , you can try the middle / inner hole on the tower.

p.s. the small tower give me some aggressive streeing feeling.

If still feel push when using inner hole , you may try the inner hole of the A-arms with inner hole of the tower.

You are newbies? :>
Fristly , if you got everythings well , i believe it can race too. The problem will not so serious that cannot be drive.
*TC3 is more streeing on the left. And becos of the 3300 battery heavier then 3000 battery and the electronic become small , so the problem enlarged.

You can do :
Make sure your car setting is correct , same camber teo-in/out.........on the L / R side.
Check the tyre wearless on left or right (it will affected with left and right streeing more or less)
Also the damper , i re-build damper every track day or 3 -4 days run time.

um..... you can mod. your chassic like http://www.mistercrash.ca/_themes/pa...ciated_tc3.htm

or add some weight on the motor side (may be more easy for you)

There are many things you need to experience. It is a long way to become a RC Pro racer. Now , just treat your car well like your girl friends. Then you will know more of her and she will help you.
