Seriously though. The pics are cool, thanks. New shock design looks good. I might say that the set up sheet looks futuristic...

Hopefully a week away for me. I'm Australian but ordered mine form Steve at Losi Parts House.

This anticipation is making my palms sweaty.

Should have gone local mate. Ace Hobbies had them over a week ago. I know that Trackside RC has them in stock right now!!!

Here's a pic of mine. Enjoy. I have also done a report on this site.

Hey Corey,

The hole size in the #3 piston is the same as the old piston. The outter diamter is just a slight bit bigger on the new ones. The old ones will work fine and that is what the team guys are using for the most part on asphalt (#2's). The new pistons are made by Thunder tiger as well as the other parts.

I always mess with Roach, he is an AE guy and obviously from my sig I am a Losi guy. I never even paid much attention to the car and only made that comment for Todd Hodge said to me in a converstation how he thought it looked like an Xray. I have just been buggin Roach ever since that. I do own one AE car but don't use it anymore, a 12L4. So that should get me a little respect.

Have you all noticed that AE is actually bringing the price of the TC5 back down to earth. Kudos to AE! Hope other manufacturers will follow.

I've always ran AE and I'm excited about the new car. I'm just upset that it's taken them sooooooo long to come out with it. Years ago AE ruled the sedan world and now they've come back with a revised car that looks great. I guess the good thing is that they make a lot of RTR's but don't really push of FT line of things. See you on Sat.!!!!!!!
Yeah I am still doing good with my old AE car so this should be much better! See ya on saturday. You need to get a 18r, then you wont have too marshal anymore!

Thanks Eric.

I used the calipers on them and they were different thickness and diameter. but it makes sense having thunder tiger doing them. The plastic is a different color too. One thing that bugged me was the fact that the pistons didnt snap off the tree like the old ones. I had to do some major trimming.

At least mine will be newer than yours when it arrives. Pretty lame argument I guess. Oh well. Look forward to reading your report.

Waz.

We should have them by the end of the week.

Has anyone run in to any problems with building at all? How is the quality of the parts?

Thanks
Brad

I wanted to tell you I read your TC5 report and I thought it was great! It was very informative and should help in my decision to buy the car.
