Default Tc3 setup questions (yeah i know...help anyways? lol)

So i have a friend who just bought an old backup Tc3 i had. I have been racing one for a while but was never able to get setups with it quite right. It always seemed way too twitchy (i adjusted my style to it and it worked out pretty well, however).

Anyways, whats a good setup for low-med grip unprepared asphalt? (actually the asphalt is sauced but not too often, but usually blown and vacummed at the beginning of the day for sure).

I guess this applies for both me and my friend as i plan to race my retired tc3 again in an RCGT class (think trans-am style except any realistic looking bodies, not just muscle cars) and he plans to just start out in rookie class. My tc3 has a center one-way and i alredy know how to adjust the diffs to the ideal feel but what im really looking for is a setup thats fast but stable, (more so stable for my rookie friend). His tc3 has no center one-way (as expected of course lol).

maybe theres some tc3 setup sheets posted showing what im looking for, if so please enlighten me. Otherwise maybe even some general toe, caster, camber, etc. for a neutral/stable setup. Id rather have a tiny bit of push than some looseness, easier to deal with you know? Ive always ran blue springs in the front and silvers in the back with 30 or 35 (sometimes 40) weight oil all around, feel free to correct me on this please lol.
Also, if possible, instructions on how to balance the car using a 3200 hard cased lipo (like the orions) would be greatly appreciated as well.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.


edit: Forgot to mention this is gonna be for stock racing as well.

There's a MASSIVE Tc3 thread on here. The TC3 was used by a lot of racers for a very long time and there are a lot modifications and set up tips that people have done over the years. Look it up and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for and more.

Best of luck.

Go to associated site and look up Billy Eastons setup and Barry Bakers I used to run those and they worked pretty well.
