Can you guys give me your tc3 setups for a smooth, indoor, high grip track. Also what else should I get for my tc3 as upgrades?

try one of the setups on the ae website. barry bakers setups are pretty good. is it a fttc3? if so, just get a oneway if you want and some irs leightweight input shafts. thats all that is really needed.

It's a racer kit, I have a Futaba 2PC, Novak rooster, and p2k motor. Also what is that stuff that people put on the track to give it better traction? One of my local track is a old tile floor (linoleum I think) with that stuff on it.

for the racer kit would just get the irs input shafts, threaded shock bodies, and a one way if you how to drive with one. other than that I can't think of anything else off the top of my head. Tire traction compound for the tires? for asphalt racing we use soda or vht.

What do the input shafts do? And I was thinking of getting a hitec lynx 3d radio, would that help me while I'm racing? I use paragon tracion compound, because that's what everyone else at my track uses.

the irs input shafts are way lighter than the stock units and will increase acceleration. a good radio will help you drive better. you can dial out steering and calm down steering etc.

Thanks!
I have to sell my e-maxx and get some money first (I'm only 15 and have no job).

Don't get a Lynx 3D. You will spend more time trying to figure out how to use it than actual racing. If you want a crystalless system get the JR XS3. It's a heck of alot easier to use and cheaper too. Oh and for hop ups get a IRS front spool. It gives you the advantages of a one way but you still have braking.

But the hitec lynx 3d is only $170 the jr is $240.

The lynx 3d: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...I=LXN491**&P=7

I can't get enough for my e-maxx to buy a jr xr3 and the other stuff you said. I would have to get the lynx 3d instead.

Iv got a Lynx 3D, and i love it, its a great radio for a first computer system! if your worried about no crystals, get the systhesized reciver and module, and bada bing you dont have to worrie about crystals EVER again! i found the 3D very easy to figure out ( i gues some ppl are better at workin stuff out than others? ) They are as common as dog poo at my track, so that is saying one thing about them


Also a good servo will help out, soemthing like a hs925mg, but you dont have to spend that much on a serovo if you cant afford it (like me) so i got the 605, which is pritty darn good for the price.

As far as set ups look at the team associated web site there are tons there. It sounds like you are a new driver. So getting a one-way probably isn't the best ideal. However if you get the front spool it is still easy to drive and makes the car preform much better. Also you need the threaded shocks. You asked about set up boards. Get the integy setup. It is cheap and works really well, and it is easy to use. As far as radio's go. Remeber this about electronics. You get what you pay for. Don't by the hitec there cheap and don't work that well. Stick with a jr, futaba, or the airtronics. Don't by cheap stuff or you will just have to turn around and buy the good stuff. Here is a set up I ran at the nationals
front spool
rear shock tower in the front.
4.5mm front ride height
5mm rear ride height
-2degrees camber front
-1degree camber rear
-4caster front hub carriers (racer comes with 0degree caster)
camber links upper most outer holes front and rear.
R2-2 block in rear
F2 block in the front
.5 degrees toe out
40w oil in rear shocks #2 piston
60w oil in front shocks #2 piston
sway bars front and rear (optional)
6mm drop in front
4mm drop in rear
Hope setup helps

ajg - If you'd like a synthesized radio (XS3) you can get then in HK for $140. shopping.rcmodel.com.hk has them but only for 27mhz so your limited to 6 channels. But it's still a dam good price for one of the best radios out.
