I actually have three different sizes of pinion screws - .5, 1/16th and 1.5. . .such a pain!

Oh well, it's the price to pay.

If I was to add a washer under the front hub camberlink ball stud what would happen? Would it give more or less mid/exit steering?

Wild Cherry. Nope. Not enough time off at my 'real' job. Oh well. I have a vacation coming up soon.

Maybe next year.

I like the front diff/rear shock tower thing. I like out-braking people also. Just a pain to sometimes get the car to steer (depending on the track). But, once you do, it's good.

Still think the one-way is a tad faster, but the diff setup is so consistent that it makes up for that!

regarding the rear shock tower and the 2 hole arms, does this set up work better all around or just for the one-way or just for the dual diff? also, is it better to mount both front and rear on the outside holes?

i've been driving my losi as of late and i forgot how fast my tc3 was until i drove it a couple weeks ago. i'd really like to start spending more wheel time w/ the tc3, and i just wanted some advice w/ the new set up.

Well...I FINALLY sat down with graph paper last night....and Trips, Proudwinner, etc....and I have to admit...they are right!....yep....time to eat a little CROW!!!!

Move the upper/inner camber link up...LOWERS the roll center.

Of interest, if you move the upper/inner camber links up 1 unit (whatever unit of measurement you want to use), the roll center is LOWERED by 1/2 of that amount. Just an FYI.

diesel31: The rear-shock-tower on the front is really only good with the diff in the front. using this setup with a one-way will give you ALOT of steering. Too much almost. It's just a way to gain more steering using the front diff.

thanks tony. btw, will the dual hole arms benefit the one-way w/ the standard shock tower up front. what are the effects on the different holes on the rear arms?
