Default Titanium Ball Studs on TC3?

Mike,
I had a quick question for ya about the TC3. Do you recommend getting titanium ball studs? I read that the off-road guys are putting the titanium studs with hex heads on their cars. Didnt know if it was helpful in on-road or not. Also, if it is used, what kind should I get? The only ones with hex-heads that I found are from Losi and they are different sizes than the ones used on the TC3. Any help would be appreciated.

Titanium ball studs are probably not necessary on a tc3. They're too small to offer a significant weight difference. In terms of durability, I've never had a steel ballstud break on my tc3, but have broken one on my offroad stuff. But, if you want to spend the money, I'm sure the manufacturers have no problem.

peter_robinson... The parts for the front end i got from BRP.. Not sure if he sells them still or not... But think they are dubro.. The balls are the one's off the trinity front end.. You can bascially do the same thing using a shock bottom .. Just have to cut it ..... I did this to free up the arm when it going upward.... Yes i am still using them part's....


cpatel529 .. 071crazy is correct.. There is really no need for them... I do not use them or intend too.. I have not bent a steel one yet...


Mike

Robinson Racing makes Titanium ball studs. Go to their website, look in Associated section, and click on ball ends.

Default Qest about the Rc12L4?

Hi Mike,

I like to ask about different ways to "tweak/tune" the 12L4.

I wonder when and why you put grease in the damperplate?
If you use teflon-tape on the damperplate ?

What is the reason to use the thin T-bar? more or less stearing?
On bumpy track´s? to get more grip on rearwheel´s?

What is the reason to use softer spring in the front?
What do grease on the frontsprings/kingpins do to the stearing and handling of the car?

What do a harder spring on the Shock do to the car?

What is the difference between 5 degree and 10 degree suspension mount in handling of the car?
How is the change(front/back) between batteri mounts position affect the handling of the car?
How hard do you set the diff?
Here in Sweden we race on new tracks every race with 2*8min practice..The tracks is often large(Tennis court size)and 12*.wind as max
Thats why I like to understand the topic´s a little better.....

I might have gotten a bad batch but the last time I bought Robinson ball studs they were bad. They snapped with no problem. I had one twist into when I was installing it. I would try the Losi or Lungfords. I just use the regular Losi or Associated steel ones. Never had trouble with them.

Default Anyone try the Titanium Racing ball studs?

They have kits and they are cheaper, but are they any good? I need the short necked ones.

Default PW, I called Schumacher and...

all I got was a spanish speaking answer machine. I wanted to talk to them about checking my Titanium Racing order for flaws. Speed Tech rep said he would deal with them until quality is back to normal.

Mike B. have you guys found a good starting setup for stock/foams on a small technical carpet track? Barry B. told me to ask you. Also does the TC4 come with plastic outdrives or lightened steel ones? Can't wait to get this thing!
