Nice car AE. I'm pretty happy with my current ride, but if it means getting DaveW back out to the track, I'm all for the new TC5. I'll even throw in two free pimp slaps!

When Dave gets his car, he'll be begging Debbie's to stay open late for more practice hours .

Most likely it's for checking the left/right balance of the car. You string a fishing line through both ends and suspend the car, then you can move your electronics around to get it balance.

No the holes in the bulkheads not the shock towers

Good stuff. I tried the other car (XRAYT2) it was nice but... just not for me. I WILL be whippin the TC5... hopefully by this winter my 1:1 car project will be close to a stopping point and i can spend some time racing R/C again. Next spring itll be some 1:1 auto-x, and an engine rebuild/boost after the season, i just wanna see what i got behind the big steering wheel. I look forward to rubbin fenders with ya again Tony. Youre grrrEEAAAT!




Um, on topic, the TC5 looks niiice. I cant wait to get my hands on it. Word on the street is it will also protect us AE lovers from meteors... any verification on this claim guys? Thanx in advance.

rcknight. you are nowhere near a pro so you cant use the only "4 pro set-ups available" you are not allowed to drive the tc5 because it is too much car for you to handle. when you grow up and learn how to set-up your own car instead of relying on other peoples set-ups then maybe you will be worthy of owning one. until then take your overpriced xray and go away. noone likes you

I have seen a similar comic but it referred to athiests and their religion, LOL.

Most Athiests don't even know they have one, but they work so hard to promote belief in nothing it can't be anything but fanatical non religious people, ROFLMAO!





Bottom line, to sum up the majority of the intraweb...

If you aren't doing school work and your on the internet, your most likely trying to prove to someone you are right and they aren't...Haha.

Just look at where a thread about a toy race car has gone to? One guy hates a car because he bought a different one, others are so in love they can't stand the thought of someone not thinking the same way. The smart people are just reading these threads and not posting in them, so i'm not very smart.....apparently.

I mean, the car isn't even out and has only been driven by about 5 people, yet it sucks "AND" it is the best car in the world already.....hmmmmm.

But I'm sure Kevin will get on here and tell me why it's ok and give me a pep talk about how wonderful everything is. I can feel the sunshine travelling up my leg already...

No worries here, it is not a pain in the a$$ as you fear. If you have a ball end 2.0 hex it's real easy. I used to own a FK05 so I know what your talking about, but this car is much easier. There are enough holes in the bulkheads for easy access. I have changed some and never pulled a bulkhead nor got close to swearing words in the process .
