Well kind of a counterpoint:

There are still parts available for the B/T 2/3. My LHS still has a plethora of -3 series parts and a decent pile of -2 stuff for those who refuse to move on! Disappear? Not likely IMO. If you see yourself keeping an older car long into the future buy parts now and stash 'em. There is a guy still running a Gold Tub AE RC10 at our track cuz he did that.

yea, with the release of the TC4 a lot of TC3 owners have moved and sold there old TC3's cheap, thats y i have got 3 TC3's 2 runners and that i pulled appart and stuck in me box. but its gonna suck if they do stop stocking parts. STOCK EM UP NOW i say lol

I gotta front outdrive problem... the small pin that the front drive cup sits on came out TWICE on friday night. The screw came loose the drive cup moved and the pin flew off. I have ordered the outdrive spares which includes the pin, e clips, and the shaft. Does it sound like the shaft is stripped so replacing the whole lot will be ok? Ive never heard of this happen before but theres a 1st time for everything lol

There really arent that many TC3 specific parts to worry about. Suspension mounts, arms, steering racks, bumpers. Everything else you could use TC4 parts if you need to.

If anyone has an "extra" TC 3 laying around as a rolling chassis with threaded shocks and maybe Ti turnbuckles I'm still looking for one as long as the price is reasonable.
