right, im running on a flowing carpet track that you dont really need to use the brakes on, maybe one or two corners would a front one way improve my handling at all. Cause theres only 5 TC3's at our club now and nobody has tried a one way, should i?

I have used a front one-way on our indoor carpet track to good effect. On a flowing track as you have described, I was able to lower my lap times over running dual diffs. If you can get your hands on a one-way for a reasonable price then it's at least worth a try. You might also want to sonsider a solid front spool. This will retain 4WD braking which is nice.

yea they do, i was gonna fit the TC4 shock tower until i realised you need the chassis braces but i got ally chassis braces so i decided against it. But the TC4's give you more setting options

Sway bars can and do help but only if your car is behaving in such a manner as to justify running one. It's not like bolting in a faster motor where more=better. I have run both front and rear bars at different times. I found that front gave me more rear traction at the cost of a bit of steering, and that rear took away a touch of traction but added a bit of steering. I'm not calling that Holy Writ, but that's how my car reacted.

Anti roll bars are used for high bite tracks where there is so much traction that it is hard to control chassis roll or that the bite slows the car down in the corners. If you are searching for traction then I would suggest against anti-roll bars.

TC4 parts that fit the TC3:
Steering blocks and Caster blocks
Chassis Braces
Shock Towers
All driveline components
Rear Uprights
Shocks
Wheel Hexes
Battery Strap
Motor Cam
Motor Clamp

Arms will fit if you drill out the mounts to accept the larger pin and maybe a little bit of dremel work. The tc4 anti-roll bars will work if you put TC4 arms on.
