You can say that about a lot of the TC's out these days...everyone seems to be very aggressive about improvement...

Great for us.....but horrible for out wallets

When it comes to the 3300 and 3600, that rear battery slot is pretty much the deciding factor. The chassis on this car is nice and thick, so it takes some time to file that rear slot down, but its definitely key to a good fit.

I had a 3300 pack that wouldn't fit at first (no glue, no shrink wrap), but once I did more work on that last battery slot, it fit just fine.

So you went ahead and took them off huh? I have my replacement steering arm on the way now, so I should be rolling again before weeks end.

Does anyone know when or if there will be aluminum wheel adapters out and if the TC3 locking hex adapters will still work like they did on the XXX-S?

CIVIC91- Yes the AE hex adapters still work, Trinity used to make a aluminum hex that was the standard size, it was part of the MF line. On the JRXS you use standard hexes with both rubber and foam tires, EXCEPT if you use JACO tires, then you need to use the AE adapters in the front only. The JACO wheels are a different offset than trc or parma.

But the aluminum clamping hexes for the TC3 will work right? I got tired of the hex coming off off the with the wheel with the XXX-S and the JRX-S now too!
