With our rotating schedule between (on-road, off-road, drag racing) it will be a little while before I have anything to show. I have been working on my set-up and my car is getting better I didn't know that the RTR came with 0* of caster.

Momogt, I know you need to calculate the height of the battery tray, with the screws holding it backed out all the way. A normal 2S pack is about 24mm high, and with the screws backed out I think you can fit a 26mm high pack . The screws are 4-40, and you can get longer ones at mcmaster.com, and drill pinholes through, to fit a taller pack . I did that mod in my Hvtc4 , and I am currently running 30+mm high 4S packs, with the regular battery strap....

Momogt, the new thunderpower 3s tp3300 65c pack is the same dimension as the 2s pack of the same capacity (23.5mm high) !!! So you should be fine with the standard strap....Only 4S+ packs run into fitment issues....Good luck...

Olly, you're right they do look similar eventhough they have different stock numbers: tc3(#3917), tc4(#31019) . I think the tc4 version is a bit beefier .They are both available out there , and it's best to get the one designed for your car because of possible shimming issues. I am sure they are interchangeable though.....

That's what I thought, the shafts are the same aren't they? and this is twice that one of my cups brake in two outtings, maybe the composite is getting weaker with time...especially if they were moulded 10 years ago, I have never heard of a stronger made cup, have you?

Cheers,
Olly

Thumbs up

They use the same input shaft (#3915), but I never had my tc4 cups break ! Make sure your shaft is not bending too much under acceleration. In my mod tc4's, I only use IRS aluminum shaft cups. I leave the plastic ones in my stock and 13.5t cars . I don't think the plastic ones will hold up well in mod, specially if you don't take the foam ends off, and don't grease them.......

Also Olly, if it is your front cups breaking, I would suggest you get a pair of lcd's(#losa3344) ! The front input shaft and bearing need to be checked for excessive play.....

Olly, I also run Niftech titanium shafts in all my mod cars ! Aluminum shafts wobble too much in mod .Too bad niftech stopped making these shafts .

nope one rear and one front breaking and this is with a 10.5t boosted setup.

Funnily the cup package for TC4 is cheaper than the TC3.

I am going to try the TC4 anyway, if the shaft is the same, then the cups should fit.

thanks

The stock tc3 setup should handle a 10.5t boosted nicely . If both cups broke , I would change the input shafts, bearings, and maybe the main driveshaft , just to be safe ! Good luck...

Olly, I think the tc4 (#31021)main driveshaft is stronger than the tc3 (#3937)aluminum one !!!
