Have a question about the TC4/TC3 diff.. When building them which side are u guys putting the diff spring on the long or the short diff side? IF u do the way the book says it goes on the short diff side with the locking T nut, and doesnt leave room for dog bone. Any tips would be great....

hey look someone else with an extreme racing chassis! cool lol.

Heres mine:

Ive since added the aluminum driveshaft and removed the standoffs and side rail looking things to give the chassis a bit more flex for parking lot racing:

I use mine for RCGT (similar to trans am) class. It works great

make sure you use a R+3-0 rear toe block though. I switched to that and its handled great ever since.

I just brought mine back off the shelf, running on med/high bite indoor asphalt. Regular touring setup right now, but I have some TransAm tires and a 'Cuda body that I'm waiting to throw on there.

The R+3-0 toe block is optional though, it comes with R+3+2.

The TC3 is a GREAT VTA car!! Tough, cheap, beaucoup parts available for next to nothing...it's a racer's dream. Only down side is it isn't as easily adjustable, chassis tuning wise, as some of the newer cars.

Setup? My car has whatever the heck was in/on it when it was dropped on a dusty shelf in my basement a few years ago. I have no earthly idea what weight oil is in the shocks. In fact I can't honestly tell you IF there's oil in the shocks...haven't opened 'em up to see.

Ran the first half of last year with eyeballed alignment before finally breaking down and dropping it on my Hudy set-up station.

The key is to have fun. Make engine noises, squealing tire sounds. The best set-up is one you don't have to fart around "finding", an ear-to-ear smile is the best "speed secret" available.

Oh, this "drop it on the track" system of mine netted a third overall in a VERY competitive club championship. First was a T2-008 that was driven by the best (overall) driver in our club. Second was a TC3 driven by the guy in our club who took things the most seriously. Then me. My TC3 could lap within about a tenth of a second of the T2, but I couldn't drive as consistently. Plus he likes to use the front bumper more than I do in lapped traffic...

I got 3rd in a trophy race with my local club in our RCGT class as well. I was happy.

I'm running a 17.5/4 cell with a 78 spur 56 pinion green springs with 30 weight oil. Haven't changed anything else from the stock setup. It used to be just a ready to run.

Thanks Dewey
