Default Can you use...

the plastic outdrives with the Nitro TC3 diff gears. The NTC3 diff gears has a slipper pad in them. Or do you have to use the NTC3 diff outdrives? I thought this would help in 19 & mod class.

You would have to use the NTC3 outdrives as well.
The diff rings for the NTC3 have a smaller inside diameter so that they rub on the slipper pad and they won't fit on the TC3 plastic outdrives.

Funnily enough some guys are using the electric diff gears in their NTC3's to get rid of the slipper pad.

I have not ran the car with foams,but with rubber tires and a stock motor I thought it ran great.

Default GAZ8....

where did you get that motor mount for the BMI to the left? Did you just cut off the fins?

Fathead....I see. Thanks.

talking about gaz's cars?

if so, he just machined them off at work ..did one for me (not sure if you can see in the pics, but look in BMI thread)....reeeally nice finish.

you mightaswell hack the fins off on the side, to save weight because they do nothing at all (they are the wrong way round)

Default raving-monkey...

The side brace makes the motor mount more solid. How is it with it milled off? Any big crashes yet? I would think it would not be very solid without it. I wish BMI would make a new mount like on his TC3 chassis. I liked how screw mounts were angled up. You got to love that detail. I wish BMI would release a date/figure on the TC4 stuff.

I thought the idea for the fins on the motor mount was not really for the air flow(in the wrong direction??)but more for the surface area to dissipate heat,at least this is my understanding of the design,Maybe Tony could shed some light on this.

I tape my batteries in for my 10L2 and my 12L4 so taping isn't a big deal to me, I do it anyway.

When you count the plastic posts that you can get rid of and the battery strap, that's a decent amount. But, it works great, doesn't take much time, gets extremely solid battery mounting (even better than the holder) and just plain works.

Default I think it was to help with both.

to make it more solid and to help with heat.

We ran the TC4 with BMI chassis yesterday, and YES it was quicker first time out, using exactly the same settings as we had for the graphite tub car.
