Here's the most important one:
http://ca.geocities.com/jleblao093@rogers.com/index.htm

You can go to Team Associated's website and get setup sheets for the TC3.
Also just go through the forum from post #1 to get good setup and mod info...

Only times I've ever had chattering with a oneway was when the axles were too worn out and would bind up (the barrel and pin where it meets with the cvd)
Hope this helps,

I'm running a front spool so I'll take your suggestions - thanks for the info.

You were drifting it? Cool! I drift mine too. How'd it go? go to http://www.driftrcentral.com for more info on drifting, check out the bodies that people have and to download some rc drift videos.

middle hole on shock tower
Spool diff
Shocks on outside on arm

camber links on upper inside
2 deg. kickup
2 deg caster blocks
4.5 mm ride height


Rear
Silver Assoc. spring

Default TC3

Does anyone know if there are other options available for the rear toe-in for the TC3. I am looking for .5, 1.0 or 1.5 degrees.... similar to the Tamiya 415.

The car works great.... I just want to play around a bit with different settings.

Default TC3

The AE one in the kit does not allow for anything less than 2 degrees. The rear arm mounts are 2 and 3 degrees. Can you explain how I get less than 2 degrees of rear toe-in Big Rigg?

You can use the front inner hinge pin block in the rear to get zero degree toe, and I think if you use one of the optional fronts you can get either 1 or 1.5 degrees....not 100% of that, but I know you can get 0 degree....
