I don't see why not - I'm going to use it to upgrade the center shock in my pan car.

has anyone been to the nurnburg toy show and got any pics of the associated stall???

It would be interesting to see what new innovative products they have developed.

i may be able to get pics but have to wait till they get back from nurnburg.

Hey, do NTC3 differential outdrives fit the TC3??? There's no available parts for the TC3 here anymore so, I need to know if I can use the NTC3's parts. Thanks

TC3 and TC4 share the same drive train, TC4 parts should be easily available, i think the NTC3 diff outdrives are a litlle longer, and a hell of a lot heavier than their electric counterparts.

Default 3racing chassis

based on the 3racing web site the 3 racing chassis is only about 50 grams heavier. 3racing list their chassis at 258 grams. I weighed my stock ft chassis (bone dry) at about 199 grams. I never weighed my 3racing chassis bone dry.

has anyone bent the ft chassis???
ihave noticed that you do not need a thicker chassis because it is wider than a mtx4 or serpent chassis therefore it is more rigid.on my old g4 i had to upgrade to a 4mm chassis cause i bent the 3mm.

I had a kid turn on his transmitter on my frequency (am now running with Spektrum tx/rx) when I was at top speed on the straight during the qualifiers for our state champs two years ago.... taco'd the chassis and drive shaft... when it went into a cement curb at the end of the straight...

In normal running I haven't had a problem with the FT chassis.

ohh ive never had an accident like that lol the worst ive ever done is shatter a fuel tank.
does anyone experience pitching on the rear sides of the chassis?? eg. bottoming out marks but toward the outside rear of the chassis.
