Anyone care to share the best way to go about it, I am sure I could experiment, but 3-4 diff cases later I might have figured it out

Here's how I did it. First you have to remove the differential cases from the car. Than you put a bearing in one half and turn the case upside down, if the bearing falls out than your set, but if it stays in, than your not so set. So than just take a little bit of material out with a hobby knife or some sand paper, and try again. Do this for all of the differential halfs. Be careful not to remove too much material or there will be play, which you don't want.

Yeh that was what I did...the two center shaft support bearing slots are the hardest to sand

Default Ackermann settings effect

Hi all,

Does anyone try the shims on the steering rack to change the ackermann settings? does it make big differences on driving feelings? Does it make the car twichy on high speed turns? Tell me your stories on that. Thanks

Dan- I think it's supposed to make the steering more aggressive. I've never tried it personally though, but that's just what I got from reading the back of my manual.

Hi, I'm getting TC3 FT and I heard that TC3 is a weak car. Parts are easy to break, even with irs or hardcore hopup parts. Is that true?

All cars break parts if you hit something hard enough. When I first started racing my TC3 I broke parts, but I hit everything. I have to say that except for a bad glitch that sent me into a board I haven't had to replace a single part on my TC3 in over a year and a half due to breakage. I've only had to replace a couple of distorted body mounts and some worn out aluminum parts. I think the car is very durable. I still have my share of racing incidences, but my TC3s always drive away. They've been a lot more durable than some of the other cars I've driven.

Cool FTTC3 Weak, No Way!

I have a FTTC3 and I heard the same things when I got mine. I tend to hit things hard when I do hit things and have yet to break this car. It is a lot more durable then my XXX-s is, that is for sure.

Later
