This will be for 19T class with 10.5 brushless system and normal NiMH cells pack. I would like to know wich pros and cons you think the TC5 have, and which extra parts i have to order on the first time in order to be fully competitive ...
As said prior, the Team Magic E4 was just announced, not in stock anywhere yet. I like the design, but I'm still cautious of 3-belt setups for eletric TC. I run the TC5 and like it so far. Quick and easy to work on. Only crazy thing is the inboard suspension arm screws, you must have a 2mm ball hex screw driver.
Extra parts, this goes the same for any car. You should purchase extras of anything that hangs off the main chassis. This means everything from steering blocks, front and rear hubs and arms, hing pins, bearings, spacers, shims/spacers, and ball studs.
To get the best for the money, I purchased 2x complete kits to start with. This way you get at least one extra of everything, and then as you use these parts, you start buying extra's from there.
