Default NTC3 Question

Hey guys i just picked up a TC3 from my friend it was a roller but i have all the parts now to get it running and i just need shocks. I need some advice what shock oil weight do i use what weight shock do i use where do i get it??? Also does anyone know where to get new tires cheap for it the stock ones are horrible and it just slides. I'm new to on-road my last car was a savage and i've never owned an on-road so any other tc3 related tips would be great.

ok now i have an engine question. I have a .12 novarossi rear exhaust bump start it's kinda old i don't know exactly what one it is. The problem is when i put it on the starting box it will turn till the piston is at top dead center then stop. When i try to turn it it will click back and forth but wont get out of TDC and when i take the glow plug out still wont budge finally i slam it down on the starting box and the flywheel spins like twice only to get stuck again. PLEASE HELP i want to run my new car but i cant.

sounds like metal pinch,try heating the engine with a heatgun or blow dryer before turning it over.
+2 on the tires and shock oil

ok quick question. I'm keeping all my Q's in the same thread so we can kep down unwanted threads. What kind of starter box should i buy for my NTC3 i am curently using my friends ofna starter bx but the battery is dead so i have the external connectors directly connected to a twelve volt ten amp car battery charger. The car does not fit right but it works for now what kind should i get thats fairly cheap i dont want to spend 100 bucks on one.
Oh also i cant find any of the tires previously specified in this thread where can i get them and are rubber or foam tires better in general for bashing and long life.

Try an associated box. It's like 75 bucks and you can get it online anywhere. Those boxes are made for the tc3's. Congrats on your new car. We've all started with a TC3 and they are still great cars even though everyone is into the fancy belt cars like RRR,MTX4, NT1's. Let's keep the tc3 alive as they are still good solid racers with great part support. Here's cool video we shoot at our on road track over the weekend with a couple tc3's racing.
