Default got it!

i got my new tc3 a couple days ago and i love it!, but i have a few questions,
when i accelerate the car seems to wobble a bit and turning i seem to lose front end traction how can i fix this?
i was thinking about getting some springs because i lot of pros who i use thier setup sheets to better set up my tc3 for asphalt use diffrent springs than stock?
any other stuff i should know would be good to thanks

try standing the shocks up more at the front.

check all camber and toe in toe out is equal side to side. that is probably what is causing the wobble under acceleration.
another thing it may be is torgue steer, i get it all the time with my SD

to take the loseness in the turn u soften the rear springs. Doing this will make more weight transfer to the rear witch means more rear traction.

Get yourself the XXX Main Chassis Set-up Guide. ( I feel like I'm a promoter or something ).

Barry Baker's 2002 Reedy Race setup is the Standard Team Setup. That's what is on an Associated drivers car when they show up at a new track and is usually about 95% perfect. Go to www.rc10.com, download it and follow it EXACTLY. Get whatever parts you need to duplicate the setup.

EASE onto the throttle....You really can't jam the throttle on a TC3

TC3 is the most "stereo-typical" shaft-like shaft car I've ever driven....best handling too

i love the handling of my tc3, it just seems to like the wall alot more then me :P My car is set up so that my front is really stiff, and my back is stock. Im running copper up front and a sway bar, and it handles great. As for torque steer, i only notice it if i am trying to go completely full throttle after trying to get out of a crash or a slow turn.

Maybe you're running your car in your garage try to run your car in a wider/bigger area so that you can run it in FULL throttle..
