If they are then they are invisible. I thought I read back in the thread that parts would all be readily available. That appears to be a crock. Try finding, drive belts, hinge pins, castor blocks, front or rear arms, long turnbuckle ASC1403 (not even showing in searches 3 different sites), diff outer drives...ect. These are all high wear items and should have been stocked BEFORE they began selling kits! Time for Associated to quit selling kits and START selling parts if there is a shortage.

If anyone can find any of these parts listed could you mention where please.

Vernbuddy,

we all are just going to have to be a little patient...this is the same with any new car release....I have never expected to get parts for a new car for up to 2 months after the car is released....I backordered all parts at work that were'nt in stock and they are starting to come in now...

dont worry, it will be soon.....and worth it....the car is SOOOOOO good!

OK then... Guess I'm a bit frustrated as I also have been waiting for the Tekin 13.5 Pro BL that is like 6 months overdue...suppose I figured here we go again. I agree this is an awesome car, and with the help of Sterling its getting better and better.

None of us want to go down over a $2.00 part though...I almost considered buying another car for parts. Add it all up...darn near worth it in the long haul.
Bet I could get $20.00 for a set of TC5 castor blocks on Ebay.

The motor looks like it sticks out a fair bit on this car, has anyone had any dramas? Like getting hit right on the endbell or anything like that?

But do we know if other cars have had the same issue? Most of the belt cars have the motor sticking out to some degree. The lexan bodies offer no protection. I'd be surprised if no other car/motor had suffered the same fate... Although some do have the motor guard.

thanks... so i guess this means that the rear diff of the TC5 is a bit more rearward than the BD.

so, in terms of handling, what does this do?

I got slammed pretty hard after getting sideways and got 2 nice impressions in the body (not quite through). The body seemed to deflect off just enough to prevent damage to motor in my case (CO27). I'd have to say it should not be much of an issue after seeing that.

start with one of the setups posted on rc10.com from the Reedy Race...they are all really close to eachother anyways...also, use the o-ring trick on the 4 rearward topdeck screws...

I got a nice side shot and it took out the cap board on my C027. You could see a nice dimple in the body from the motor shaft. I installed new caps and all was fine.

With proper shimming, yes. The yok spool will have play inside the TC5 bulkheads. I have heard body washers will get you close, then use the AE diff shims for fine tuning.
