It wasn't duct tape, it was that good quality battery strapping tape..... You know the kind. Actually, I need some of that. Not joking, I really do!! Who makes that stuff? I've been meaning to order it at the shop. If you remember which distributor carried it, that would also be a help.

I just need to use camber ruler , downstop and ride height ruler to setup my car.
If u want to setup well your car , the frist thing is to read more setup instructions, e.g. X-ray , or other sites info. about setup car.

Default Rear Toe-In

Hi all, I fixed the steering rack problem. The rack had four high spots caiusing binding points.

Does anyone have an idea as to why my rear Left toe-in is 4 degrees and the right is 2 degrees using the R and R+3+2 blocks?

Thanks

first make sure the block is centred/aligned properly on the chassis.
second replace the block
third some of the early batches of hubs had dodgy molding, causing unequal rear toe. try replacing the rear hubs

hope that helps

I just swapped out the hinge pins, and blocks and the same result. Maybe it is the rear hubs. I was thinking hingepins myself. But nope they were ok and even after replacing the toe is still wrong.

rinkrat99:

How you check the teo-in? With wheels?
May be the wheels is bended a little bit.
also , all car (included tc3 ) will get lossen after the parts used a period of time. Check the gaps bewteen all parts.
If too big gaps , use one 0.1 , 0.2 or 0.3 mm spacer to make it fit.(becareful to keep them smooth!)


* Look after your baby (tc3) , if not , she will cry.

Rear toe-in was checked with the Integy setup gauges. There really is no slop in the rear end of the car so I do not believe that is the problem. Its probably due to the rear hubs being slightly off. Technically, the blocks should space the arms to the 3 degree toein but if the hubs are off in the wrong direction, the toe will either be increased like the left or decreased like the right.

It sure is good to see we can laugh between the important stuff on here. I get tired of toe this, and, arm that, balls here, and, ball there. Inuendo is the greatest thing on earth... LOL.

Chad, that strapping tape came from a distributor named Competition R/C. I dont know if they are still a distributor or not. I have had that roll since i worked at Tidewater R/C. I did however see someone else packaging the same roll of tape at the Birds. It was in Superior Hobbies HS. I cant remember who was on the header card, but you might can get more info from Superior Hobbies. They have a webby too, but last i looked it was still under construction. Ill check into it a bit more and see what i can dig up.

Just for informative purposes, Intertape is the company name printed on the inside of the roll. They have a website of the same name, but the pics/labelling are not very helpful. They also have a listing of distributors.

Tphalen addressed this about 100 pages back.

The rear toe being off is most likely due to the way you are installing the rear block. If you put one pin in first, then work the other pin into the second hole, you will oval out the first hole in the block.

The rear block needs to be installed squarely, both holes at the same time and then slid into place. If you are struggling at all, it will be off because the plastic is rather soft. The run of bad hubs was years and years ago and is not the likely culprit.

Default somethings about parts broken

It 's very interesting that if i install F+2 arm mount , it is easy to break. If install F+0 arm mount , A-arm is easy to break.
ALso , install R3+0 , it easy break too. But R2-0 or R2+2 are not easy to break.

Default Tires for TC3

You all seem to know quite a bit about these cars. I am not a racer. I merely run my car on the street. In fact, I am still using the original tires and rims that came with the Racer model car. My question is in two parts. The first question for you is if you know the best tiire to use for the longest life on the street and the second is if the original wheels can be reused. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
