Post Better Adhesion

Before you apply double-sided tape to anything, remove all residue then wipe it with alcohol. For a longer, better adhesion.

Post Shock Cap Coupler

Stripped or weak threads in your shock cap may cause the damper to seperate unexpectedly. You can temporarily repair this using an automotive hose clamp around the area where the cap meets the shock body.

Get hold of the Ride Shock Builder. It comes as a container with a pump. The pump is supposed to de-pressurize the container and force the air bubbles in the shock to rise more quickly. Upon releasing the pressure, substantial amount of air bubbles would have burst. Repeat, until free of bubbles.

In an experiment, I used the normal way of moving the shock piston up and down slowly to get rid of the air bubbles. I thought I had got rid of all the air. When I used the builder afterwards, I was surprised to see much more air bubbles surfacing. Suspect that all those air bubbles might have been hiding under the piston or between the O-rings. Definitely, one of the better R/C car tools out there.....

Default Associated Shock Pistons

If you install your shock pistons with the numbered side up, you wont have to take the whole shock apart to remember which piston you have.

Post broken a-arms

if u break your front or rear a-arms on your tc3 they can be switched so the rear a-arms fit the front and the front fit the back cause they're pretty much the same just a little taller.
