Hi,

Here is a couple of our TC3 setups. first one is for higher bite tracks. we switched to Parma foams this year so minor tweaking was needed but not shown here

Rear:

Springs: Purple or copper (depending on bite)
Oil: 50wt Assoc

Jason, will we still be able to get the sweet Satin Black if all goes well with the new CF? Also, is the strap going to be able to use the Xray battery posts? It's looking kick @ss! Good luck with testing.

Some quick fixes if the rear of the car is slidding out on you.

Goop slightly less of the front tires
Reduce your dual rate on the radio so you don't oversteer as easily
Loosen up your rear diff a tad
add a tad more camber to the rear tires
Use a softer tire compound on the back tires


I know when I have my car set up the way I like that I have to take a lot of steering out with the radio or I will kick the back end out on the car when I get too aggressive on a turn.

The BMi2 runs $110. You get the bottom and top deck. The quality of the machining is awesome.

i have been having problems with my bmi Tc3. every time i so much a tap a wall the steering becomes unallined. now i know its not my servo because i have put in a new one and it does the same thing and the servo doesnt do that with my FT tc3. i made sure all the screws on the servo and stearing rack were tight and its still doing it. does anyone have an idea as to what is going on and have a solution?

Check to make sure your servo horn isn't stripped at the splines.
