Actually that is the prototype diff. The production one is similar but black. We didnt have enough production hubs, casterblocks etc yet so I ran the old ones. Some of the cars had the production parts on them, some didnt.

bigb11: The TC4 ITF chassis wont fit but there will be a different one for the TC5.

AE has made a new ITF Chassis/upper deck just for the TC5. If you go to Tower website and type in TC5 it will list the car and all the spare parts. Just scroll through the pages and click on the ITF chassis. In the upper right hand corner they give you AE part #. I have a nice list of parts for my LHS

Hope that helps.

Juho...Why the o-rings under the rear screws for the top-deck; more flex or tweak issue?

kevin, thanks for the info. I thought this car was a factory team car with all those parts I saw at tower.

Anyone from associated , can you guys fill us in on why it didnt get the Factory Team badge ? Not that it matters to me just curious

Hi All,

@Juho, u think its important that we use the ITF Chassie for Asphalt and rubber Tires? When yes, i must call my TTR Man and order some :-)

Or u think there is a way to run this Car on Asphalt out of the Box?

Greetings,
Marcel

BlueSilver: It's not an absolute must have but if you want to best performance out of your car I'd get it

MR JOLLY: My board is just 10mm carbon fiber, Craigs board looks nicer and is a lot lighter too.
