Niftech makes some nice ones. IRS also makes them. I don't use them on mine...but I want to...those aluminum outdrives wear quickly. I tried to get the pins out of the dogbones but was unsuccess full (broke 2 composiste CVDs before I gave up )

A vise works great for pressing the pins out, I can do 8 in under 5 minutes.

I keep seeing people talk about the BRP bumper. Is it a good thing to have? The only thing I have broken on my tc3 is a few composite cvds. Will it protect the front end from breaking those? Are there any bad sides to running this wider front bumper?? How about the nerf wings? Are they as well built as the original bumper?

No, I did try 32r with HPI Red I think. I am not home or I would double check, but I am pretty sure. For some reason, this has been hapening the last few times there, car is dialed in practice and first or second qualifier. Comes to the main, the car looses traction in certain spots in the track. This has happened with 36, 32, and I tried 27s last time (Take OFF).

mystererc: the brp front bumper and side nerf wings definitely protect the suspension arms, especially in offset crashes. the front bumper extends farther out than the original bumper to protect the front arms. the nerf wings also extend from the chassis to cover the rear arms. although i found that the nerf wings should have thicker material on the part where it bends to form a 90 degree angle. a few of us broke the nerf wings on that particular area, but those were really heavy crashes.

hoosierracer: protoform makes a 50's chevy truck for the T-maxx. im not sure if it will fit the TC3 with some trimming but considering that the wheelwells of the T-maxx is a lot bigger than the TC3, i think it will be difficult. oh yeah, i think parma makes one for 190mm sedans. but im not sure on this, ill look for the parma ad in my magazines.

HoosierRacer, Parma does indeed make a 57 chevy truck body. Parma However they don't say what chassis' it fits. It isn't mounted on a monster truck. It may take a call to parma to find out for sure if it would fit.

Do you guys understand what Josh means with the following text?

Josh Cyrul (Saturday, March 16, 2002, 1:50 a.m.)
shortygy - I don't have any pictures of it. I used two old D2 motor end bells, cut them and screwed them to the chassis braces. Then I put a brass tube through the bearings. Then a piece of piano wire through the brass tube. On the ends of the wire I used Trinity wing buttons. This allowed me to run another piece of wire forward where I could attach the standard ball end and tie-rod. I don't know if this explanation is clear enough..lol.. Let me know if I need to clarify it better.

Uhm! Seems me a part of the forthcoming 'Mad Max car' conversion for the tc3... (endbells?, brass tube? (maybe for the front guard), piano wire?)

Arvid, please post more of the those thread, I'm interested on knowing the aproximation to the NOS discharge system for electric motors from this guy...

Sorry, it was a bit unclear. It's Josh's own design of a front swaybar.

I can't see how you can mount the cut endbells so that the bearings face the right direction.
