Who knows. No different from the Street Weapon/XX-4 and the XXX-S/XXX-4. There are TC3s out there that have been converted into a 4WD buggy (TC3 'O'), and it performs quite well.

Keep up the good work, I really like your latest TR3 revision.

Yep I agree.

Thanks. It will only get better too I promise.

I am going to order some G10 tomarrow for the new chassis. I am pondering the idea of starting a new thread for this because not alot of people want to read through all the pages plus I realized that I am basically starting from ground up again for this latest version. Another new chassis design,new shocks,new motor position, new chassis stand offs,new a-arms,new rocker mounts,etc . Basically everything that I have done for Version 2 has to be redesigned and re-cut. Took one step forward and it sent me 10 back. It sort of frustrates me but at the same time it forced me to look at the TR3 in a new way and come up with solutions to the problems and it is helping me to design and build a even better and more innovative truck.

Just thought I would mention that after much thought I have decided to cut a new chassis. This chassis will let me have the option of having a mid motor set up like a B44,BJ4WE,D4,etc or I can switch to a regular set up like a tc3 or BJ4 with a sidexside down one side and the motor and electronics on the other. I won't have to switch the chassis or upper deck if I want to switch back and forth. Also with this chassis I can use either my hingepinless design or it is capable with a suspension type like a T4. Using T4 a-arms and regular hubs. SO there will be alot of options built into the chassis.

Ofcourse..I haven't ordered the G10 yet.. :/ I don't have enough money for shipping lol and everybody keeps backing out of my deals. But I thought I would stop buy and show you a drawing that I did and also the touring car shocks that I picked up. Alot of people have been recommending touring car shocks to me.Also I have included a picture of the rear hub set up (notice the Proline Step Pins also, no more huge mashers). With the rear hubs I made slight modification to the pivot ball holes so that they would allow for more travel. I also filed down the top of the hubs where the turnbuckle screws in to make it flat instead of having it be slanted down. I won't be using traditional ball cup turnbuckle ends but instead screw in types. I just hate having to pop on and off the ball cups. I also hate when they pop off in the middle of a bash session or a race.
