I have been using 4 degree caster blocks in the front and switch up the rear hubs from time to time. I have been playing with inboard and out board toe but the blocks I have been using have been the stock 0 degree and the 1 degree. Most AE set up's have been 3 total degrees of toe in the rear and right now I'm playing with 2 total. All this is for outdoor aspahlt on rubber tire's. I have not run the car on the rug yet. When I do I plan on running the same as asphalt. Our carpet here is on rubber tire's.

Indoor carpet, on foam, I'd go 4 or 6. I use 6 almost all the time, but 4 can be useful if you need to take some corner "wrap" out of the car.

fatbear, they were available but quickly sold out. If you can't wait you can probably piece one together with the following parts.

31175 FT One Way/Spool Pulley:TC5
31177 FT One Way Hub w/ Bearing:TC5
31178 FT One Way Outdrives:TC5

Probably need the screws for the pulley and one-way hub but not sure. In the long run it will cost you some more $$ if you cannot wait.

Yes you need to buy the screws to hold the pulley on, in a pinch you can use the screws that hold the hinge pins from coming out, thats what I did.(I used some old TC4 screws for the hingepins)

Why is that Clint?

Ooops


I have to ask something, TC5 guys, is the TC5's motor mount really small? And is the chassis wider then say a cyclone?

I love how everything on this car fits so easily, and nothing hangs off, and if I try the same on my cyclone, stuff will hang off alot, or the LRP TC sphere to be specific...
