Which engine is in your tc3

.............. Gonna have to be creative and inovative and make it fit on the TC-3 due to space limitations . Some pipes I have used with the .18TZ with good results have been the Schumacher pipe for the Fusion .21 size motors , Vantage pipe for .18-.21 size motors and the Cvec compact pipe.

........Texas Basher you don't need any adapters, the kawahara 40mm wide tires fit without adapters. Finding a body wide enough to cover the rear tires is the challenge. The body that comes with the 220mm kawahara conversion is wide enough check kamikaze hobbys

Nitro head I checked out that site but only found parts for the mtx4 and mrx4 I have a mtx3 that I wasn't those tires on. If you know of a specific company that make a kit for the mtx3 let me know. I've been looking but found nothing so far. Thanks for helping me out.

..............Tex I guess they have sold out of the Kawahara conversion kits. But you can still buy nthe tires seperate look under their tire section. And call them too they might have some of those 220 bodies around it is a Lola body.

Thanks to everyone who helped. I gave kamakazie a call but forgot im ahead 2 or 3 hours. Anyways if what you guys are saying is no adapters needed just throw on a 220mm lola type body and im ready then that's great. This may solve my tire issues I've been having. This will make the car handle more like an 1/8 in what way do you mean????? Thanks again..

it handles the high speed corners alot better it will turn in at high speed and grip in stead of spin out assuming u have a good setup for where your running yer car but yes you dont need and spacers or adapters the wheels will fit right on and youll wish u had more room to run lol

Have fun

Thanks... are the kawahara's the only ones that will go on or will others fit? Yeah and I hope I can get this thing set up soon since I've got a few people to run with on sunday. I know the kyosho 1/8 tires are availible locally.
