Default TC3 Oval Setup

I performed a search and could not find any answers. I plan to run a small concrete oval this spring. It has 50' straights and a 9 degree banking. Does anyone have a starting place on the chassis/shock setup?

Do a search on google for "TC3 setup." I may have pulled it from the teamassociated website but I found a bunch of setups that I printed out.

Need a modified chassis that was the Snowbirds TC Oval winner in 2003? LMK

I'd offer more set-up help but my experience is all on carpet with TC Oval. All I can say is put some gear on it! It's much more than you'd think and go to 64p gears using a 88 tooth from Kimbrough for a spur. Gearing these cars is crucial and it'll keep you ahead of the pack. Many racers assume their on-road gearing is close but it's not anywhere near close!

Do not over engineer the chassis with all types wierd spring set-ups. Start with your basic on-road set-up for springs and go from there. Don't automatically assume the car will work using stiffer right side springs.

Good luck and enjoy!!
