Default R/C noob here! Bought a TC3 and have a couple of questions..

I bought a used electric Associated TC3 and it is pretty much stock except for the front shocks and drive shaft(?). I have looked at some suspension pieces and noticed that some say original and some say Version 2. How can I tell which version I have? It came with a battery that says 2000 on it. If I buy a NiMH 3000 battery will it last longer? Give it any more power? I will probably have more questions later but that's all I can think of for now. Thanks! Here is pic. I put the new wheels and body on a few days ago.

Version 2 arms have 2 holes for the lower shock mounting postions (the origional version only had one hole). Also you may want to note if they are graphite or plastic (graphite is more expensive, stronger and has a kind of grey hue to it, the plastic is cheap, weaker and is more black)

Yes a 3000 will last longer than a 2000... also you may want to look into the 3300 or the new 3700GP or 3800IB as they will give you even more runtime.

Just so you know graphite is not stonger then plastic. Graphite is lighter, stiffer and breaks easier. Here's a link that tell about graphite myths.
