Contact BMI and see if they will make you a chassis set for the TC3 with the batteries way offset to the left. Or will really wide battery slots that are popular with pan cars these days.

It's an even better 10th scale car.

We've got over a dozen guys running Oval Touring Class with the TC3 & 4.

Run with open diffs (std) or a one way up front.

A Solid rear spool will allow your car to slide around the turns.

My TC4 with the batteries in the rear and open diffs, does just that if it hits the ice patch and then it's a controlled slide 'till it sees carpet again.
