Default Asiatees & GPM TC3 Parts

2 months? Shoot, I start going crazy after something doesn't arrive a few days after someone has promised it will arrive. I'd cancel the order and cancel it from your credit card if they've already charged you for it.

The best way to clean bearings is to take the covers off, blow them clean with motor cleaner, lightly apply bearing oil (one or two drops) and reassemble. If you want to loosen up your car, leave the cover off one side (the one that faces inside). The drawback is that you will have to clean them more often.

That's a big drawback. I think I'll leave the covers on them. I'm not looking to race weekly. Thanks for the tip.

Default 100T Spur 64P TC3

I just bought a Factory TC3 with a 100T Spur with 64P. What size pinion should I use with it? I'll be using a P2K2 Pro Stock Motor with it.

The guys at my track run a 31T pinion and the track is a small tight carpet track has good results. I am running a 32/96 and am staying right with them. I would suggest talking to the people at your track and see what they are running or asking what there drive ratio of there TC3 and then set your car car to around the same ratio and play from there to get the most out of it.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll give that a shot.
