maybe try some 39t pulleys? (long shot here, as i don't know the first thing about this car) just happened to poke my head in...

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNZD4&P=7

looks like both pulleys are centered, and the balls are .0935" for each. could be an easy solution. (remember to make new rollout charts for these )

Hi if look @ the pic of my car u will see a new rear belt, it's the same as std but with more 'flex' / softer this does also help the car, contact TIR about the blets!

Thanks.

But isn't the TC5 ROAR National STOCK Champion with the standard belt??

Hi all, has anybody run the tc5 with the stock chassis and top deck with rubber tyres on carpet, then been able to run at the same track with the ITF upper and lower decks fitted? Did you find the car faster per lap, more grip or just generally easier to drive quickly?

I am just curious how much time you can hope to gain for your $70ish dollars or so?

hmm that is interesting. i remember i emailed titanium racing and within 20 mins i got a response from darren. he gave me the information about ordering a spool and i paid through paypal. i received the spool mailed from the uk to california within a week time period. they probably got swamped now with emails.

the tir spool beats my diy spool by a long shot. love it.

best of luck

That looks nice. I changed from a TOP Scythe to the TC5 so I know the quality of TOP Racings stuff, it's usually very good. Please let us know as soon as it is available. It appears the associated ones still havent been made, so this one might become a hot ticket.

Info on where to buy would be good too, once they are released.

Cheers

Hi Aaron

I'm very happy with it, very durable and I like it use a pair of plastic cup joint adapter. I will notice here if the spool is available in Hong Kong.
