Default Carpet tire choices

My buddy and I both own Tc3's and are looking to begin racing them, been bashin' around for years.... I have the Integy set up kit, and Associated, posts plenty of past set up sheets. So I believe I can get that stuff down right. My question regards tires on carpet. What is a good starting point in choosing tires I believe foams are the trend at the local tracks... Thanks

Dbl Pnk/Org for the fronts and Dbl Pnk for the rears seem to be the standard for most carpet situations. At least its a good starting point. TRC and Parma you can use Cyan and Magenta...lot of people going with the Indigos up front.

When I had my TC3, it was durable enough on the asphalt but when I ran it on the carpet it became brittle. Good luck to ya.

Default the ultimate tc3

Hey all im new to the forum and would like to say hi to all of u.

Having two TC3's and a rolling NTC3 chassis with the V2 suspension on my way and a brushless combo laying around I started to think of making the ultimate 190mm! legal TC3 wich I can fit with 6 cells.

First off:
I would like to know if it's possible to either convert the NTC3 to a 190mm legal electro racecar or outfit the normal TC3 with the ball suspension from the NTC3.

I am planning to make a TC3 platform like this http://overrc.com/news/news2004/firerc10/firerc10.htm

So with the batteries mounted underneath the driveshaft. Does anyone know how this has been done or know the owner of this car so I can contact him?

Thanks in advance!

Keep the TC3's alive!

when we ran rubber tires on carpet, that barry baker setup worked great for me.

Okay, one more question then.

Should I have more droop in the front or the rear?

More droop in the rear. Lower numerically, though. Default setup is 6 in front and 4 in rear.

So, just to clarify. Sorry, I'm new at this.

If I have a ride height of 5mm, I should have a total of 11mm lift in the front and 9mm in the rear.

Right?
