to mount the tc3 rack you will need to drill holes in the stock chassis and countersink it.you can transfer the holes over from a tc3 tub chassis.just make sure you line up the holes for the transmission housings to get the right location for drilling.this rack binds up and is kinda a pain in the butt but you will be able to get more ackerman and the ackerman change is more gradual throughout your steering travel.

Yea now I'm confused. I had a tc3 and the steering was junk. I had the car for a total of 2 weeks.

I'll buy both.

Dave, I think your right. Aren't the wheel one's 4-40? I took a nut from the whell and its much larger, doesnt even screw on.

the nut on the wheels is obviously much larger than the one on the shock mount thus being 8/32 for the wheel and 4/40 for the shock but buy whichever one is bound to work?

I wouldn"t know about the Wheel nut size either ... I use axles that use a metric M4 nut
