Thanks,

Blake
Use the tamiya ones, but if you want the AE ones, you'd have to take out a sand paper and carefully sand wach one until it fits perfectly.

Anyone use a servo saver in conjunction with the crappy little TC3 servo saver? I have a KO Propo 2343... What do you guys recommend?

The blue TC3 looks nice but I bet it weighs a ton.

The NTC3 hubs and arms are interesting.

I am asking about a servo saver because I repeatedly strip my servo gears when I'm racing because... well... I suck!?

Hey, I know that this question has been asked before but I need foam tire information. I am racing this thing on carpet and would appreciate any help you guys could provide. How good are Speedmind foam tires too?

for carpet you will run TRC 28mm front and 30mm rear with Plaids up front and Purples or double purples in the rear, you will need to true down the tires and you run double purples in the rear if you want a loose car...................there are many different tires combinations that you can use howecer these are the basic ones..................as to Speedmind tires, I would not suggest them, use either Mono tuning, TRC (trinity), Jaco, or any rims you want with TRC donuts

Hope this helps, I used to run the TC3

I used to set mine at 1.5 - 2 degrees but I get better tire wear when set to 1 degree all around.

I just milled out my TC3 chassis and I was wondering what that black material is on the side to push the battery towards the drive shaft?
