Why upgrade it? Just get a TC4 and have both

I have 2 TC4's and 2 TC3's

The TC4's are for club racing and the TC3's are for drift and rally.

Hey guys, what size of flanged wheel lock nuts fit on the tc3 or any other american brand r/c car? I know that it's an 8-32 lock nut but we use metric here since I'm in Asia. What kind of lock nut(metric) can be used?

omg i was trying to find the solution to my tc3 propblem by reading it, after teh first 10payges i wen to the last one..i was sure shocked to see it jump to 300 pages!! Anyway! i have tc3 steering problems. When ever i drive, i turn left and once i let go, it keeps turnign and archs, doesn't steer straight. Also, seems like i can do a donut by turning left but not right. is it teh diffs or somethign? Some tiem is i steer right, it'll fix teh slop and make it steer straight.

Without going too deep, it could be your servo gears. Then look at all of the bearings at the wheels. Then make sure that a pin hasn't come loose and is rubbing a wheel. After that you might as well dismantle the whole drive train testing each component till you find the problem.

Check your Steering Trim, Dual Rate, EPA's, etc...

Also check your servo, is it centered?
