Sorry I meant the bumper brace not the chassis brace, hey it was 2 in the morning.

I've converted another TC3 into the TC3 'O' and that has the newer diff cases with the hole at the front I'll have to swap them over.

Thanks guys

Hi guys,

Well I have just got back from the "Ultimate Open" which is New Zealand's second largest on road meeting. I ended up TQing both Touring Modified and also Super Touring (Touring modified using whatever bodyshell you like. Usually Can Am style bodyshells). I then set about winning both classes and setting new track records in both classes. It would have to be my best results ever in RC car racing and I have been racing for about 18 years. The track its self is very bumpy and the ashfelt surface is like sandpaper. I used the black BMI tc3 chassis with the 3mm upper brace. We race on foam tires here as well. The car was just great and I was approx 1/2 lap up on everybody else from the start. I ended up winning 8 out of my 12 races and the ones I didn't win were because of driver error or mechanical problems. I have attached a couple of photos of the winning car and body shells.
Great job.. The car looks really nice and I noticed that you were running awesome cells. Congratz again!

John

Thanks guys,

John Fontaine: Yeah I bought some Fukuyama cells a couple of weeks ago and I am very pleased with them. I will probably get some more soon. I have been using Reedy X-Cells but the Fukuyama's have about 20 seconds more run time.

I got the bugs worked out of my new chassis. I had it hooked up. I was on a roll in the B-main after being late and having only one qualifier to get used to the new setup. I was smooth till the anouncer hollered "Speedie is on a 23 lap run". DOT-DOT-PIPE I was so mad at myself. That was the most consistant I have ever run, the car worked great.
And easy to setup as well. Its nice to have a flat surface to measure ride height off of.

I had the same problem. I didn't end up doing the mod. I would have had to grind away enough material I was afraid the hinge pin would show...or be very thin in that area.
