If any hardcore tc3 guys are interested. I'm trying to sell my tc3. It's in good condition. I have pics. It would be a good racer, backup spare. I'm looking for $150. I can only ship to the lower US 48 states. I need cash to fix my real car! PM me if your interested. Thanks.

What can I do to correct my car from pushing? I "think" I know what to do but I wanted to check to see if I'm right. I can go down the straight at full throttle into a right hand sweeper and the car just doesn't want to turn.

My set up now is:
Front - 50w, blue spring, 4 mm droop, shock mounts outside holes,

Rear - 30w, silver spring, 5.5 mm droop, shock mount middle hole,

Any comments and ideas are welcome, thanks.

Are you running any toe?

Have you tried the same setup, with the rear shock on the outside hole?

your cars seems out of balance the front is way stiffer than the rear.
change one thing at a time: for asphalt
go softer spring in front. Blue to gold.
try that, if it still over steers go lighter on shock oil.
go to 30 wt oil in shocks.

for carpet go stiffer in the rear. blue shocks and 50 wt oil.

rear droop increase will give you more off throttle steering.

front droop increase will give you more rear traction because of weight transfer to the rear. I would leave this alone if your looking for more steering.

I hope this helps

Gold (19.5lbs/in) is stiffer than Blue (17lbs/in). The factory setting has the front stiffer than the rear. His is actually the same as factory in rear and one step softer in front. You'd think this would give him a little more steering. Being on the middle hole in the rear is going to allow a little more weight transfer to the rear under throttle, though.
Looks like he's already got 1mm less droop in front than the 'standard' setup, though.

thanks,

I just pulled by tc3 from mothballs and forgot the color sequences. I will check them with a micrometer.

I would go to lighter oil in front shock. then try the shock positions
most set ups i have seen and used had same oil weight in front and rear.

I will give my old tc3 a run this week end to see how it fares against all the hi tech cars out there. it feels pretty good so far out side the house, but you know how that goes.
