Cool

Whip Racing Innovations make a carbon fiber driveshaft for the tc3/tc4 that does not bend or flex , and at (5.25g-5.5g) weighs a lot less than the aluminum shafts (9.9g-13.7g)...You should check them out if the aluminum shafts fail ...

That is strange, so they must be different shape cups? I believed that the shaft fitted both cars??

I fitted one of my carbon shaft back on to see if it makes a difference, bearings etc...are fine, car was just rebuilt with new bearings too.

thinking abour making a "sleeve" over the drive cup so that the pieces stay put and are not under too much force, maybe a lightweight tube glued on.

The tc3 has no issues with whip shafts, the tc4 has fitment issues according to their website . I recommend using Irs aluminum cups front and rear with the carbon or titanium(if you can find one) shaft ! You won't need a sleeve on the aluminum cups though !

Does anyone know what the stock toe degree setting is in the manual, ie what does the 1.7" turnbuckle length equate to? I don't have a fancy setup kit, and I need a known starting point to work off of.

In the manual , the turnbuckles should be 1.125" each for standard toe , but it does not specify what degree standard toe is , although I think it is as close to zero as possible, having built a few fttc4's to spec . Anyway you can get it as close to zero as possible using a board with two straight lines.....

1.125 is the turnbuckle physical length not the total length with ball cups. The RTR manual says total length center cup to center cup should be 1.7", although the FT manual doesn't state a length just gives a SO box, what ever that means.
Yeah I guess I give the two lines method a try. It's just harder to do with tires on the car.

This is my Associated TC3 set up for VTA at our local track. www.RCARindy.com The body is HPI's '67 Corvette. If you run VTA, you know that the '67 Corvette body isn't a legal body in VTA, but most tracks are fine with it. It fits the era just fine, but it's not legal because no real '67 Corvette ever ran in VTA.

Paint is Faskolor FasRed. Windows outlined in silver and backed with white to make it pop and then a light coat of black.

Motor is a Novak 25.5 brushless. Futaba 9452 Steering servo. Great driving car!

I bought all the parts I needed in 2005 , and with parma bumpers in all my cars, I hardly break anything ! IRS has a clearance of tc3/tc4 parts, and whip racing might be out of business !!! As for the turnbuckles, sorry mate you're right, I read it wrong, but I only use the two lines method, I am not spending a dime on a hudy board, $250, give me a break !!!!! That's another car !!!! I try to put the least visible toe out in my cars, and that does well enough for me !!!

You do not need a Hudy board, I have a Titan setup which i paid 50 box and it works perfect on a piece of laminated MDF.
