Here is my other TC3 drifter. Novak VTA brushless system, front one way, locked rear, HPI T drift tires. Lights front and rear, full interior and the cab is set up to tilt forward with the 3rd channel.

Its an old Yokomo Euro truck body. I'd love to find a couple more but they went out of production years ago.

If I remember correctly, it should be the same for the TC4 and Nitro TC3.

Any suggestions on setting up the diffs? I've got the front set kinda loose and the rear as tight as I felt comfortable going. I didn't like how the Traxxas "Ralliestangdra" rolling stock worked on it, even regeared with a 16t Traxxas pinion, so I'm going to electrical tape a set of treaded TC tires until I can get a set of proper drift wheels and tires (HPI Vintage drift tires and Torque Thrust clones) and the afore mentioned AAR Cuda shell
