Looks like you're already using alot of Losi parts. I didn't even know we could use Losi hinge pins. What's the part number on the rear hubs and Losi Hinge pins? I've only got the Losi front hubs.

I think I'm done drifting my TC3 for the year. The weather here in the Northeast has been terrible. I'm getting my MR4TC Special ready now for some indoor carpet racing! I'll probably only go 2-4 times this winter. Team CRC's track is too far and gas is too expensive. I don't even go to the casino anymore! lol... If the track wasn't so far, I would've kept that IRS TC3 that I bought off of here. Instead, my wife "suggested" I sell it since I won't be able to race weekly. I sold the thing but kept the spare parts. Plus I still have the SS5800 brushless I bought off the guy!

yes you can make a solid diff with the stock one. i used to drift my tc3 aswell with just a fully tightened diff. and it worked fine. now i CA'd my diff to make it into a makeshift spool. its not pritty but it works for drifting.

Do you drift with your spool in the rear or front? I used to drift with a spool in the rear also. You get way longer sweeping drifts but I found it harder to do quick transitions with it. What kind of setup do you have with the spool?

I bought an IRS TC3 from here 'cause I wanted to do some carpet racing. I didn't want to deal with having to redo the entire setup of the Factory TC3 I use to drift. But since gas is so expensive and the track is about an hour away, I just sold the thing but kept most of the spare parts for myself.

I'll just race the MR4TC Special on carpet and maybe in the future I'll upgrade to a modern chassis for racing.

i drifted with a a fully locked spool rear, and a just barely locked front diff....so i didnt completly lock it.

it was for drifting on carpet with taped rubbers.....so it seemed to work pritty dam good.

No, dude, the IRS TC3 is electric. When I said gas is so expensive, I meant gas for my truck. lol... It would probably take me almost half a tank round trip. lol...

The TC3 I'm definitely keeping just for drifting. The more you mess with setups, the more you strip and break things. Especially with these TC3s. Don't worry, I remembered all your setup tips for drifting.

I'm sticking with the MR4TC Special right now to be my racing chassis. When this thing is totally killed - no more belts or other spare parts, then I'll buy a modern chassis.

does the losi knuckles and hubs for the front fix the 7degree steering problem with the tc3?

and if you JUST have the losi knuckles and TC3 HUBS do you get more steering?

Thanks

Nah, its not worth it. I'd rather learn with this chassis then move up to something nice. Besides, the reason why I got this old this was so I could learn on a cheap chassis plus I've got alot of spare parts for it already.

only for about a week so im still learnin stuff so im only using it in car parks etc but there arnt many outdoor tracks near me so thats what its mainly for. It beats waitin a week to do racing anyway i am gonna get a yokomo drift HKS HYPER SILVIA BODY or the RX-7 one and pimp it out with full neons etc to look sweet as im actually surprised at how easy it was to get into driftin i thought it would take ages to learn to control the slide but its quite easy really
