u dont need to grind down much.... Or you can drill another hole in the chassis, and the only screws that are SAE are for the battery strap posts.

I just got mine built and I'm running lipos. Of the ones that are using lipos, did you use the battery strap or battery tape, and what other modifications did you do to keep the battery from moving around? I have the nexus weights installed on the bottom of my lipo also. Thanks

Wow ... got my TC5 kit and what can I say. It is such a high quality kit that I relegated it to the garbage bin. Would have to rival the JRX-S for poor quality kits. Poor fit and quality, doesn't even fit the current generation servos without dremelling and drilling. Way to go Associated !!!!!

Typical reaction by anal Americans. Not allowed to criticise the big brand. Dont worry , I have bought another kit and it went together like a gem !!!!

I simply stated a point of view. Not everything has to be positive about the kit

THe point I make is that you are not allowed to criticise an "American poduct" . People should be aware that the kit is a long way from perfect

Wow, that was weak. I'm not going to defend America, but you just took something totally out of context and used it to attack the US. What a gigantic, weepy pussy you are.

If you're crying about a little bit of play, you're obviously slow, and looking for excuses. The kit isn't the reason you suck. It's because you're Australian. No, just kidding, it's just because you're not very good.
