Anyone know the part number and good source for the Yokomo one-way for the TC3? Is it that much better than the Ae one?

Default Re: TC3 Q's:

As an alternative to buying more hubs you can get the losi set screw that they use for their similar hinge pin setup. It is much larger and it will work perfectly while creating new grooves that won't strip as easily. Saves you money too. Another alternative is to buy the losi hubs. You can buy the graphite parts with different caster angles and still be cheaper than buying regular associated plastic 2 or 4 degree hubs. It's the 2 or 4 degree kit for the xxx-s. Comes with set screws also.

The problem is with the parts that has the grub screw the is supposed to hold the out hinge pin in place. No matter how much I try to tighten the grub screw, the hinge pin still works it's way loose and will eventualy rub on the inner part of the wheel, leaving marks on the wheel itself. After a while the hole for the grub screw becomes stripped from me trying to tighten it too much and I have to change out the molded piece....Is this only happening to me..?

Also, is there an upper bumper plate for the TC3 like the one for the NTC3? I know BMI makes one but I don't think it will match the FT graphite very well...?

Thanks
