Anybody have a release date on this car yet? Will they be as hard to get a hold of as the REVO was when it came out?

Default Is there any other company that makes a titanium...

input shafts for the TC3/4? I guess the "Titanium Racing" shafts are bad quality and you can't get them anymore. Anyother company come to mind?

Default Ha, I know IRS makes one, but...

I thought a titanium would hold up better.

I believe TeamBomber/G-Style also makes aluminium input shafts for the TC3 as well. Except these input shafts are one peice with the drive cups on them. Only problem is finding these parts. R10 doesn't have them.

The arm mounts are now labeled with symbols instead of a letter....ie, the TC3 mounts were labeled F+2, F, R, and R3+2 (for instance). When someone asked you what F block you were running, you had to say F+0 or F+2, if you even knew what they meant.

The new labeling system is pretty cool. If you pay close attention to the labeling, you should be able to see where we 'pimped' the labels from.... Anyway, the labels are as follows: Triangle (replaces the F+2 block), Circle (replaces the F block), Square (replaces the R block), and X (replaces the R3+2 block). You will be able to run shims under each block (in .25" increments) to raise or lower the arm mounts for different situations. On the TC3, the standard height arm mount was great for asphalt, concrete, etc., but sucked for carpet. Most hardcore racers would mill down their blocks to lower the arm mounts for carpet....a task only the guys with milling machines could do. Now, that's a thing of the past.

Just alot more tuning adjustments for a wider range of surfaces.

What does cutting the blocks down do? I have heard of the cutting of the front block to give anti dive. Is this what you are talking about.
