Long time M03 and still a TC3 racer.
It's been awhile since I've ran 27t brushed, but I recall a final drive ratio of 7.0 was about right. 26/72 sounds right. If it's getting beat by a mini then something else is going on; same motor, the TC3 should win. Might be time to cut the comm or change brushes.

Check drive train binding issues as well.

I just rebuild my old TC3 with brushless HW Xerun and a LRP X12 10.5t for fun racing, I have not run it yet and dying to have a go to see how it performs.

So I spent almost all day yesterday, took everything apart, cleaned and reoiled everything, checked all running parts individually, and it was needed !!

Maybe you should do the same, there are a few updates you could do also if you wish.
