Default Top TC3 hop-ups

What are the top hop-ups I should get on my TC3? I'm going to start racing it again if I can get it to handle good again. I have a racer kit with carbon fiber drive shaft, and that's it. Whats a good stock motor?
Thanks Andrew

Default hop ups

Hello. i like the threaded shocks there easy to set tweak .i hated putting the clips , i started with a fatory team and removed most of the aluminum it was heavy and slowed the car down in stocki run the carbon cvds and center shaft it seems to spool up faster
does your car have the droop chassis?

I don't need to practice. I am one of the top stock class racers at my track. (some of my lap times are a second slower than the mod class)
I guess I'll just upgrade my electronics.

Maybe if you practiced, you WOULD BE the top stock class racer.

Default Top Hop-Ups

These items will make your car better...mostly lighter and more responsive, which is ever so important in the stock class:
-Upgrade to a full "Factory Team TC3." In your case it would probably be cheaper to by the kit and start new!
-Acer Ceramic Ball Bearings
-IRS Aluminum Imput shafts
-IRS composite Dogbones
-Stay with the Associated C/F drive shaft

Depending on the track, moving the batteries closer to the drive shaft can help greatly. Not really sure if blueprinting the diff cases truely helps you on the track but it does help the "WOW" factor at the track. Do a search for these in the forum.
