I run blue springs and the rear shock tower up front, and am able to get as low as 4 mm.......for asfault try the barry baker set-up from the 02, 03 reedy race on associated's website.......it should be about 90% perfect and give you the adjustability in ride height your looking for

Thanks, I was actually looking to duplicate that set-up. I got a bit caught up on the ride height but I think I've got it.

is there going to be a chassis for the TC4, if so, how long do you think it will take after the TC4 is released to have a chassis for it

Default Another way to dial your bmi TC3

If you plan to race that set up i would highly recommend changing to a better ball cup. those associated ones will pop off with the first tap of anything...........Isnt the rear toe already adjustable with the simple swap of a rear block????? Joe b are you ready for the fury on "asfalut" sunday????

Default Ball cups

You are the second person to tell me how easy these ball cups break, yet I have not broken one to date. It will probably happen when im first in the A with a minute to go

as for adjusting the toe by replacing the blocks, you are right, but then my take is, why be normal , besides now I only need to cary front A-arms in my spares box

Have you tried it out on the track yet. Ive seen it done before but it was set up to the rear like the NTC3. The problem with that setup is the bumpsteer when the arms are moving up and down. Mounted to the front will make it toe in as the suspension moves and to the rear will make it toe out. Ya never know might work for ya.

Hey SA racer.....Run the shumacher mission ballcups all the way around and you'll most likely break the arms and half of the car before you pop a ballcup off.............Hey Sean(N4S).......Im All Ready to go.... ........Hey Jay , You gonna race?

since yall were on the subject of Schumacher ball cups, I have an off the wall question

I run Losi's, and I want to run Schumacher ball cups, so I need to switch to Schumacher ball studs, but I run Losi which is standard not metric threads, so I run the new Associated hex head ball studs when they come out with some titanium ones with the hex heads on them or just run the steel ones, since you can run Losi spindles, hubs, and carriers on the TC3 the ball stud sizes should be somewhat similar, and it should all line up and work. Does anyone else think this would work? Or am I going way to far off the wall.

I just want to run my Losi but I want to have another thing about it that is different. And theoretically I could run the schumacher ball cups on the shock shafts too if I cut them with the AE ball studs on the suspension arms.

I think this is a good idea, but it is mine so I am prejudiced, does anyone else think it is? Also what is the part # for the Schumacher ball studs and how many come in a package?
