Default hey everyone

long time time no hear haha....so I am going to throw out line and see what I can get....... Does anybody have a car that they are looking to sell...not too much as I promissed the wife I would keep it low budget something that I can still get parts for and might even give me the potential to run with the front crowd (if only I could drive hahaha) A tc3 would be sufficentbut will look at a number of possibilities... I hear Jason might have one.....I was also hoping that it would be as close to if not RTR as possible so if you guys even have a radio or esc that is kicking around let me know!!!!! I may have to put something together... I will also be on the hunt for a charger....I have a couple of NImh packs so it would be nice to put them to use so if I could get something that would charge those that would also be great... you can let me know here or email me...

Hey Blain...

Low budget

I tried to get out last May...no luck man it's an addiction. I sold pretty much all my stuff....now I'm kicking myself. Should have just kept it. Had to buy a new car, radio, charger,servo ,batteries....oh well...I'm addicted

Be cool to have you back out there...sounds like it's going to be a good indoor season. If you can come out this Sunday and say Hi even if you don't get the gear to race...

Later

Default TC3 car

Hey Blain

my TC3 Team car is at the shop with a little attached note saying price. It is a full team car with titanium, fr aluminum diff, etc...plus threaded shocks. Its all there, plus I can throw in some extra stuff if you want.

There's also still lots of parts on the wall (well in a box) for the TC3's. Aaron had his out today to package it up as a full RTR for the price you discussed with him. Looks good, but you pick what you want.

I had a great day racing, even with my 20sec TC main. Nicki really enjoyed the day, and will definitely be back out there. Would be nice to see a few more pancars out, I know they're out there!!!

See you in 2 weeks.

Default hey guy's

I was just wondering if anybody in the club drives a tc4....how good are they "out of the box" are they as fragile as some people say they are? what kind of parts would I have to buy to make it not as fragile and ready to race??

also I am asking again if anybody has any radio, esc or servos they are looking to sell...I am on a tight budget ??? I am getting close to getting something and getting a little excited...I might even be able to get out by next race day if things go right


Hey jason you said you might be at the store on fridays but I cannot remember a time....are you going to be there 2morrow?? if so let me know...or if you can be there sometime on saturday that will work as well

Default I'm in tomorrow (Friday)

Hey

I'll be at the store from mid afternoon to the evening.

The TC4 is a tough car, and that means a lot coming from me. I am impressed with its durability, it only breaks when it really should (full speed impact into the wall!!). I was happy with the TC4 car and very happy with the FT version.

As for my TC3 for sale, its at the store with a tag listing the 'deal' for whoever is interested, just ask them to look around back for it.

See ya

Blain, it's the TC3 that is fragile. The TC4 was a big improvement in terms of toughness and reliability - primarily because it had a much better front bumper. Whether it is any faster than the TC3 is questionable, unless you get the FT version (which is MUCH quicker).
