batjam1 umm ya what r u talking about ''more then 4 bolts holding the diff down'' because if its under the chassis screws its 4 screws that hold the diff case on the chassis and theres 6 screws that hold the top of the diff case down is that what your talking about

(For both Tc3 and Tc4)

just got confused

Thanks newera152
We buy new tires and cut the foam down to 56-57 mm in diameter,It does 2 things :helps keep the tires from peeling and chunking,they last longer and also helps with the rollout! 26mm is the width of the tire!!!!!
And Big Daddy wanted to know if the bolt pattern is the same on the chassis of a TC3 to aTC4 Maybe the team but not the factory team!

Probably the arm mounts and the new hinge pins. I know the TC4 has thicker hingepins than the TC3.

i'm not sure about the hinge pins being thicker but i do know you could run the rear shock tower up front,and they make tc3 arms with 2 shock mounting holes its the newer style arms !Maybe thaTS WHAT YOU SAW!

PART #3884 front arms

So i ran my first packs with my Orion 27T RUSH motor and a 28Tpinion . I am kinda disapointed with the speed , i know it is a stocker motor , but my Mini Cooper M03 chassis was faster with a 540 mabuchi . I broke the motor in by running it on 2cells for 4 mins . and I ran it with 2400mah packs . How long of run times should I be getting? maybe my batts are fried . What do you think ?

I think you would notice a big improvement with a newer pack of batteries (GP3300, GP3700). If your 2400's have been sitting a while, they are most likely the problem. Even a slow stocker should run circles around your mini.

Default FYI

I e-mailed AE about parts being available in the future for the TC-3.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

F.Y.I.

I just bought a TC3.
I am a little worried if AE is planning on discontinue parts in the
near future

I really hope not being that it is a very popular car.


Regards,
Eric

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eric,
We expect to continue to sell parts for this car for a while to come!
There are still many owners who need them.



Sounds like we have nothing to worry about for a long time.

Later,
E
