Maybe just start with a tc3 old school kit setup and go from there. Back in the day those were pretty decent just about anywhere.

Does anyone have a good starting point for rollout? I'm currently running a 72t spur with a stock motor.

You beat me at trackside and NOW you want to know about rollout? I should be asking you that question.

In fact I think I will. I am assumeing that you are talking about foam since you are talking about rollout. But on a rubber standpoint what kinda gearing did you have the last time at trackside ? I think I have my car just right but I cant seem to beat 20 laps. Will gearing up help me or is it just a practice thing?


thanks for your help

Well, last night I ran my TC3 and it just seemed slow. I raced my Tamiya car and it was a lap or two faster. It just seems like I'm going backwards with this car.

The first thing that comes to mind is weight, If your comparing the tub chassis TC3 to the flat and smooth chassis of the tamiya then the diffterance is obvious IMHO. I tell ya every time I think I have gone as fast as I can go with my TC3 there is always someone to show me different.

my .02 (dont know if it helped)

Anybody have any suggestions? Looking to figure out rollout.

What gear ratio should I start with? I am using a 72t spur with a stock motor, rubber tires on a carpet track. Trying to figure out if I'm using the correct pinion for a medium to large road course track.

Any hints will be helpful. Thanks.

Default Penguin chassis

I have a brand new setup. I have a brand new Penguin chassis for a tc3 with all brand new everything. It has all factory team tc3 parts including a brand new one way I haven't even got a chance to run on the track yet. This car itself has only 2 weekend races on it and handled perfect on a carpet oval. I will sell the complete roller with a Hitec hi torque metal gear servo for $300 shipped in the U S and I will ship over seas for a little more. If anyone is interested in it let me know and I will post some pics.

Probably not much use to you but I was fortunate enough to pick up a full set of 4 on an ebay chassis that someone was selling,they do pop up occasionally there
