Where are you guys getting your hopups at? Does AE itself sell them? I live near them.

Hello,

I'm would like to buy TC5 but i found arms, caster blocks and steering Block really soft. Will Team Associated produces carbon parts ?

S_fender, you are so right about that. I have a TC5 which a run on carpet and the front end parts flex so much my castor blocks go from about 4 deg to 6 deg when flexed........I hope stiffer parts come out soon.

I heard the team drivers were filling gaps in the suspension arms with JB weld to increase stiffness.

Some may have been doing this for testing, but drivers like myself, Juho Levanen, Joel Myrberg, and Craig Drescher use stock parts.

And i would prefer "official" parts.
If all AE top pilotes use stock parts, it seems that there is no problem. But i really would prefer stiffer parts.

We use the factory parts now.

The TC5 is one of the best cars, if not the best, with rubber tires on carpet. And is very competitive on asphalt. We have struggled on carpet with foam tires but it has more to do with set-up and driving skill (our team did not drive their best). If we thought stiffer parts would help, they would have been on the car last year :-)

I just spent a week out in Vegas at the IIC and I can second what Rick is stating. All of the modified factory drivers were using the standard arms. As a matter of fact, there wasn't a NON AE part on any of our cars. Bob Stellflue at AE has been working very hard on the touring project. If indeed some find that stiffer parts are usable then I am sure Associated will offer them in time. Just be patient....

Are the IIC setups going to be posted up on website? It would be good to see some more carpet/rubber setups
