I thought nitro was hard!!!
Are there any like step by step instructions on soldering the batteries, motor esc..etc?

Any pics would help a bunch!!!!!
do u need instructions on soldering or just how to do it for RC?
u wont really need to solder everything together,using good connectors like corally pplugs or deans plugs are good enough.
if ur not sure,copy and experienced racer's layout.
practice on something else if u're not good at soldering yet.

I had an old tc3 foam front bumper laying around when I milled my chassis and I just used that and some servo tape to keep my battaries from sliding around. Works great and I've had no problems so far. If you really want to use glue, you can use shoe goo. That stuff works for everything .

Hey man, first of all, 30 celcius right?, also what is a bitumen track? also what is the MK2 conversion you have? do you have a picture of the car?,
um i forgot the conversion from C to F, lol,
Anyways, with foam, the really nice thing is temperature doesnt really affect it much, so....

Post ball cups ?

Does anyone have any sugestions on what ball cups to use on the tc3? The stock ones seem to be a little cheap and the rpm ball cups seem to be to big.

RPM ball cups should work fine, you just need to shorthen 4 cups that connect to the steering rack and steering blocks.

RPM are the best I have found and they make them in blue There are two different lengths of ballcups, make sure to get the short version and only the steer link to servo needs to be cut, at least that was the case on my car.

i would suggest you experiment with your car. try building them from the specs then try building them with out. every tranny case is different you will just need to fine tune the shimming to your cases specifically.

i just use the stock shiming

then if the gears are binding, use the polish method



i think that drivetrain is all about the berrings

30 degrees would be below freezing, so i am assuming that you are talking about celcious, which is 86 degrees F, so this is the answer for what the conversion from c to f

Yes, I too am running the "B4" ball cups, you have to shorten one, and you can leave one long, works well. Also, I cleaned out my bearings, took the inside seal off of all of the bearings except for the ones on the shaft and it is rediculously smooth, now when i blow the grease out of the 4 on the shaft, it will be very free.
Also, sand down the teeth on the two gears, to "dull" the top of the tooth, like a pre-break-in
