Default 64 pitch gears

Ran a 104/35 *2.5 =7.42 gear today. Felt good in the car with a 19/2 Chamaelion on our tight indoor track. Ran a 7.36 also which felt a little sluggish to me. Christian is running a 7.2. I tried to install a 112 spur. It would fit with slight chassis mods but the motor would not move far enough out without cutting on the blue motor support cam. Decided a 104 and a 100 would be the spurs to have in 64 pitch.

hey guys kinda off the subject your talking about, but I just got a new factory team tc3, and everything went together fine in assembly. But it seems my gear mesh in both trannys is off, and the car runs kind of loud because of this. I have tried moving the spacers on the bevel gears and even removing one, but nothing seems to help. I have run the car for two weekend races thinking maybe the gears would seat themselfs but no luck. Does anyone have sugesitons or tips on this problem

Associated diff grease (no black) is what you need to lube those gears

Default Aero-Car gear lube

I use Aero-Car gear lube. It comes with a tiny brush that with some modification will actually go thought the gear cover hole and go down and touch the pinion gears in the gear case without disassembly. It looks like a light bodied paraffin that melts as soon as the gears turn. It leaves a very light coating of lubricant on the gears so that they don't stick as they rotate.

I see some listed at this hobby shop. Your local hobby shop should be able to order some.

Porter-Try removing one or two shims from the input shafts. Some guys even run the car with no shims.



Drive Shaft O-ring

I thought that this O-ring would be a constant source of endthrust on the pinions and their bearings so I did not install it. Seems to work fine without it.

Default Blue Aluminum Shock Caps

Here is the Associated part # 1598

This might cure the problem of the plastic shock nut's flange binding on the shock caps as well as having more uniform size to the hole that the bushings rotate in. I don't have a set yet so I'm not sure on either. About $12.


SPOOL

Solid front or rear spool. Associated part # 1704. This is made for the NTC3. Don't know if this will drop into the TC3 The only difference might be the outdrives as the two cars share a heavy duty one-way housing. If you know for sure please let me know. About $30. There are several other companies including IRS and Wolfe that make spools as well.

John,
The nitro stuff is not the same, I think the center of the one-way is the same but the inserts are not (hopefully someone can correct me if I'm wrong). If I wasn't so darn lazy I would walk down stairs and see for sure, if I need to let me know.

What you guys think about that IRS straight front axle to TC3? I looked it from Towerhobbies site and it`s not so expensive for my mind 21.99$, but how strong it actually is because it is aluminium? Any experience...??

We have some IRS spools on order. They have not arrived yet so I don't have a durability report.

Proto pilot - My IRS spool works great on carpet with an 8x2. No signs of wear or breakage. However, to reduce wear you should use the irs pin cushions. I used the irs oversized cvd bones (with pin cushions) when I ran the spool. I used to bend the associated cvd's when I ran the oneway. I figured better safe then sorry when using the spool.

Edit: I just made order to Tower and now waiting those parts...
