No not yet, mine is back for fun more than racing, already have TC6 for competitions.

But I am contemplating fitting a spool on front, where do you get the losi parts? they must be fairly cheap like the TC3's now.

Broke a shaft cup on my last outing, actually, do they exist in some other material than composite? something stronger maybe?

I am waiting on parts to arrive to put it back on wheels.

The losi lcd's (part#losa3344) are about $35 a pair on the web (Amainhobbies...etc...), but they fit the tc4 ,I don't know about the tc3 ! If your tc3 uses cvd bones #3888 or #31034 , with Ae axles #3886 , then the losi lcd's will fit nicely ......

Yep 3888 and 3886, sorry for saying but I found Amain a little expensive in comparison of others found around, I am sure the service is good as many of you buy there, but i have to look at postage cost here also, and it is cheaper from HK than US.

I gather that you are using the same bearings, are the nuts the same as TC3 or are they metric? Unlikely thought my Losi were Imperial too.

I am actually looking for a solution to put the TC3 on metric size screws, it will be easier for the tools as TC6 is metric too.

Tc4 runs the same bearings, same spacer as the tc3 ! The tc4 wheel nut fit the losi lcd's, and I think the tc3 wheel nuts should fit too !!! I downloaded a tc3 exploded parts page, and that part of the tc3 is the same as the tc4!!!!

Yes I thought so, another mod that would be good to have/fit (tell me your thoughts) would be to run a blade into the center shaft cups, not sure if they would fit but like outdrives it could protect them better.

Default FT Motor Bulkhead

It's great to see people running older cars. ON to my situation. I'm thinking of converting my tub chassis to the factory team carbon fiber chassis because my car is just heavy, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. I don't have a lot of aluminum on it and a fair amount of carbon parts, so I'm thinking of converting to the ft cf chassis. There is one catch I can't seem to find the motor bulkhead (part number 31105) for it. I can't even find one of the of the 3racing bulkheads.
Does anyone have a spare they are willing to sell or know of a solution that might work? Heck I would even consider borrowing one (if someone was willing) to see if I could make a mold and try casting one myself.

Hope someone can help.

Olly , sorry for the late reply, but I don't think blades are necessary, just trim the wheel axles , grease up the outdrive and pin a little, and use an extra wide front bumper so the front wheels never get touch too much in small fender benders . My aluminum outdrives don't show much wear after five years in all my cars, and don't drive as good as you !!! The stock car is the one I learned to drive in, and the outdrive is a little more worn from running rubber tires on a carpet track with hard plastic barriers. I hit so much that the other racers got annoyed when I came to race every friday ! Nobody wanted to be in a qualifier with me then , and I still have the Irs aluminum spool up front today ...Good luck , you won't be disappointed.....

Also I wanted to add that lcd drives will reduce wear all along the driveline , due to less overall vibrations . Center driveshaft cups will just need some grease , that's all........
