You could remove both, but removing the big one should do just fine.

Well I went to run this weekend for the first time since the Reedy race. It was a small parking lot track but it was smooth and traction was very good. The car was dialed using my Reedy setup and old Reedy tires. I made some small changes after the first round to see if I could get it any better but the sky's opened and rained us out. I'll be going back in 2 weeks to race and test some more.

Here's a setup question, when the track starts to get greasy from the heat, and the rear end decides that it's time to srart drift racing, what change would you suggest to help lock the rear end back in?

I have a question regarding something that isn't really covered in the "tuning guide" included in the instruction manual. What does raising or lowering the differentials do? Is this a geometry adjustment (COG, dogbone angle) that effects handling in and of itself, or is this something that goes along with a roll center change?

I don't know how Associated would answer that question but I would say it effects everything you listed in someway or another. I believe its mostly a COG thing that effects weight transfer and creates traction or less traction depending on setting. It was an adjustment on the "brand X" FK05 that I used to run for awhile. It is a great adjustment on certain tracks and definately should be tested out. I also remember Gil Losi Jr. once talking about driveshaft angles and how they can create forces on the car.

I was definitely thinking Losi regarding the dogbone angles; though I believe they typically used this adjustment fore and aft, rather than up and down. Just seems like a cool option for me to try that I'd like to know more about.

Meinie,

Its has everything to do weight transfer,and when the car will tansition,so the last posting is correct.It's something Xray came up with in the beginning.After all,the car is a blue FK05!

So, for example, a higher diff in the rear would cause weight to transfer more quickly to the front under braking? And vice versa under acceleration?

Raising the diff height equates to more traction at that end (either frt or rr), but only under power. But if you go too high at either end, it can make the car erratic to drive. Best is usually:

1. mid high frt and rr
2. mid high frt and mid low rr

That's the simpliest explanation I can give. Hope this helps.

I drove an FK05 for 2 years....I can tell you the TC5 is a lot different and a LOT better than an FK05!!!

Yes the front belt is very tight when putting it on the first time. IT does how ever free up after running a few times. I have not measured or counted the teeth to see if another brand would fit.
