Unmatched sport packs just don't provide the "punch" that matched packs would....or so I've been told. That should be your next investment I think. It worked for me .
Thanks for advice guys.

I'll buy new tires and add additives (we are allowed to do that).
And new cells.
And practice. I think I can improve at least one lap or two after practice.
And possible another lap with new cells.

I think I felt that I was slower with 28t pinion at the corner and with 27t at the straight way.

My tiny brain is about to explode.

I just found out the I set up the TC2 for high traction not for touring stock.

Way to go.

Thats the way gears work for all motors. A smaller pinion will give you more acceleration, and a larger pinion will give you more top speed. I've notice its different for every motor. Don't worry, I've lost my mind many many times over this stuff, you're not alone .

See if one of the fast guys will let you try out one of his super packs and see how they help your time. You'll notice a big difference .

I wonder how Kinwald would look at me when I asked for his pack.

BTW, why so many guys are running XXX-S now?

People say it is easier to setup and handling better when running modifieds.

But I like TC3 better. It suits my driving style.
More aggressive acceleration.

Long live TC3 !!!

rcruv- To pick up the pace and get a faster time, you should really start using a one-way. Get used to that and I promise you lap times will start dropping... At SoCal, one-way cars have a definite advantage....

TPhalen,

Were you the one who was driving a super fast EMAXX at FV race??? That car is SMOKING!!! Man, you drive that truck like a sedan, so smooth!!

I heard you put 14 cells in it??? How about a 16 cells? lol~ Nice racing day, and nice seeing you experts race for the title! Thanks for putting up a good show!

I know this question has been asked a billion times.....so here it is again. What does a one-way do to the handling of your car?

RC > for SoCal you need to use Paragon. This will make your car stick from the begining.

I have found the oneway gives much more steering entering the corners. If the track is slippery it is like sticking on the handbrake. I have found that with a oneway you have to use a lot less brakes(drag or real braking) to stop oversteer on a slippery track. The car is defianitly faster down the straights though.

Thanks for the advice.
I'll put one-way in my shopping list next time I place an order.

wolfeman09 > I'll definately use 'paragon' and bushing oil next time I race.

How often do you guys recommend cutting the comm and replacing the brushes?

Some guy said that I should cut it every week or two.

I think I might put comm lathe in my wish list too.

I get my comm cut after every race day (about 6 packs). I'm getting my lathe this week so that I don't have to burden my manager with the task of cutting them for me. Not sure how often to replace brushes....I've got some trinity silver serrated brushes that I've used for about 7 race days (at least), and they still look brand spankin' new....

Default Longer rear body posts???

Hey guys I just painted a new body and when mounting it on the highest setting on the rear posts (never been cut) it still sits too low. Just wondering if any company makes longer ones for the TC3 or will some off another car work that are also longer? I looked around but couldn't find any since the stock TC3 rear body mounts are pretty tall to begin with. I'm guessing I could buy two sets of rear body posts and some how modifiy them and make one really tall set.

Any comments or suggestions?

Thank-you!!!

Yeah I just thought of those after posting. I'm glad someone mentioned these to confirm that they will work. I think I will need the parts tree A371 to gets these. I found a pic of it...



Thanks again.
