Team TC3
 
So I'm about to get a Team TC3, and I can't figure out what kind of pinion gear I need. I am going to be using a 8t or a 20t motor on it. Some help would be very much appreciated.

About a 17T pinion with a 8 and around a 23T with a 20 turn motor i would say roughly.

For bashing, or racing.

Racing: what size track?
Carpet? Asphalt? High traction asphalt or low?

There is a pinion gear guide in the back of the instruction manual, if all else fails, start there.

thing is
 
I don't want to wait for the manual to arrive with the kit and then I have go an buy the pinion gear after it. Another question is do you just need a pinion gear, becuase it is shaft driven or do you need another gear to get to the shaft? If so what size should I get then?

The kit comes with an 87 tooth spur gear to fit on the shaft. According to my manual (dug it out of my pit box just for you) a stock, 24 degree motor requires a 28 tooth pinion. But, it still depends on the motor. Example: a Trinity P2K2 Pro suggests going up two teeth on the pinion, where a Trinity Monster suggests going down. Also depends on the track, I ran my TC3 at Roseville and used a 32 tooth pinion and was kicking ass with room to spare. Hope this helps.

awesome
 
Thanks for digging it out... so since you have it out, if I'm running a Team Orion 8t revolution what pinion should I get?

Java1970 04-15-2004 12:20 AM

It only goes down as far as a 9 turn, but the logic is this, for every wind you go down, go down one tooth on the pinion, so if it's a 19 for a 9 turn, it would be 18 for an 8 turn. :)

A TC3 comes with a 72t spur!

For a 20t i would suggest a 25pinion depending on the size of the track.
For an 8t i would suggest bying a bigger spur (75t, anything bigger will stick out under the chassis) and a 17t pinion.

HI, thanks for your post, I was wondering since it says your from Belgium if you know any good hobby shops to pic up stuff. I mean mail order is cool and all but I hate the wait. I live near Aachen, at the Drei-Laender Eck. Any ideas?

I live near Antwerp Belgium.

You're at a perfect spot in Germany. 3 spots are "nearby" were you are.
1- HK modellbau in Hurtgenwald (near Duren). Only a shop but does carry Asso parts! http://homepage.hk-modellbau.com/

2- Motordrom Geilenkirchen, indoor & outdoortrack, shop, but doesn't carry Asso. Don't realy like going there because of the atmosphere. The owner Calli is a nice guy tough. http://www.megadrom-geilenkirchen.com/

3- VIOL, (near Monchen Gladbach) indoortrack & shop, Great track, go there often dispite it being a 200km drive for me. If you go there tell Olli or Ingrid Roy sent you. http://www.viol-model-racing.de/

Hope this helps and see you there sometime
Regards
Roy

Ooops!! Your right, I was working on my T3 stadium truck when I wrote that and THAT has an 87 tooth spur.

Committed88 04-15-2004 02:19 PM

Wow, awesome
 
I live in Geilenkirchen, and I can't believe this little town has something like that. That is awesome. Thanks a whole lot for the info. I was just in Antwerp like a few weeks ago, awesome city.

Hopefully I will see you there. Kind of sucks, I am getting ready to go back to the states in about 4 months and I only just now discovered that there is stuff around me. Better late than never.

Committed88 04-16-2004 09:15 AM

Hey Roy
 
Where there somethign specific about the track in Geilenkirchen, that you didn't like. I went there today, and besides everybody acting like they couldn't speak english (even thought their entire web site is) the place was really nice. I'm not really into X-ray stuff, but they had a pretty decent selection. I liked the track. Maybe its just cause I wasn't expecting so much from Geilenkirchen you know?

The only downside to going to the place that I can see is the language barrier... weil mein Deutsch nicht so gut ist, aber ich kann Deutsch reden, es ist nur schwer fuer mich.

I should have my new ride in next month so I think it will be interesting to try out their track.

Hardriven RC 04-16-2004 09:28 AM

Its just the attitude of some of the people that frequent the place.
As i said, the owner, Calli, is a great guy doing lots to promote the hobby and gives good advise to youngsters from the neighberhood regarding RC.
Only some of the drivers seam to think they are better then the rest and act as if they own the place. Shouting at people that are still learning to drive. I feel that this is not the way to improve our hobby. Luckyly there are great guys to, or i would never go there.

Anyway, maybe i'll see you there sometime.

Regards
Roy
