I took my whole tc3 apart, rebuilt everything that needed it (differentials, shocks, ect.) and dremeled the battary slot and motor hole, and put the whole thing back together in one day , I felt very proud of my self. It takes a long time to dremel the battary slot, but I really like the way it handles with it. And I used a piece of an old stock TC3 foam bumper to keep the battaries still. But I don't have a digital camera to take any pictures of it . But it is a very good modification.

I also tried racing with the Alfa 2.0, and that is the best bodie I have ever used. I love it.

Default Rear chattering

What would cause the rear end of my tc3 to chatter in a corner?

I am running 1 degree camber, 30wt, number 2 piston, silver springs, sorex 36's, and my shock is in the middle top and outer on the a-arm.

Any thoughts?

rc-racer this is for you, try these droop settings on your car:

4 front & 6 rear

These settings will do two things for you. First, with a setting of 6 in the rear the car will transfer less entering the corner which will keep more weight over the rear, which will either cause your car to understeer into the corner or not. Secondly, a setting of 4 in the front will limit the amout of on-power steering the car has by limiting front-end transfer exiting the corner, which in turn will give the car more on-power rear traction while exiting the corner.

Are you running on carpet? Try thicker oil, sounds like you have to much traction.

Default ONE DIFF

HI Guys,

I was told last night that there are a number of one way diffs for the TC3, CAN SOMEONE RECOMMEND WHIS IS THE BETTER ONE TO GET, AND WHY THEY RECOMMEND THAT TO THE REST OF THEM.

Raced again last night and i believe the TC3 is getting faster with every run, has anyone had this same experience, i finally broke the 25 second at our track.

Can anyone also tell me. i was told last night about the number of shims in the gear box, can anyone recommend how many i should have in there, someone suggested none, others say some ???? confused

Thumbs up Too much Chatter in the background?

I think that the 4F and 6R droop setting is right on the money. But getting chatter with 36s? Yeesh! Must be running on velcro! heheeh. Maybe its a simple problem such as inserts being off or a tire being off the rim a bit? Also, I think that 30 Wt oil might be a bit thin. I am running 65F and 55R for my carpet setup and I usually run above 50 no matter what. I could be wrong but you might as well try somethin! Good luck!

Shimming and such
One of the huge things with a tc3 (I heard) was getting your diff cases set so that they didnt tweak and cause the bearings to run a little less free. I rebuilt my diff's with new outdrives last night and didnt use any shims but it was a good .010" to .015" play side to side. I just dont want it to bind. I think you just dont want the gear to bind as the diff moves right and left - I would just space accordingly. I cant see using more than one on both sides. Sorry for the vague answer. Good luck to you too! Ian

Get the ones Made by YOKOMO for the TC3, its stronger and has bigger bearings and the outdrives are not brittle like the AE ones.

There is also one made by Tech Racing for the TC3

Or try using a spool.

Peace and happy racing!!!
