I have talked to bob often as well.. And i do understand that it takes time to find the magic setup or starting point. But to be honest.. the car has 1 full indoor season on it and not much has changed in the way of results on carpet.

Like i said before maybe i am wrong about the harder arms, but walt henderson had the same idea as myself and another local driver if he was trying to stiffen him FT arms at the IIC.

I will not say the car is not good, cause it is very good but there are a few option parts associated could sell that not only would bring in some extra cash, but probably also increase the performance of the car on foam tires on carpet.

Pretty soon the only people that will be racing foam tires on their sedans will be the guys with tire deals. All others will be running rubber tires and you won't need stiffer suspension pieces. Flame suit on.

Default Servo Saver

I finally busted the threaded barrel that holds the servo saver together..(one part I didn't stock )...After getting a new one and looking more carefully as to why, I believe I over tightened it. If you snug it too far, the "saver action" is no longer. I loosened it about 1/2 turn and blue locktighted it to give a bit more of the cam action...But. Directions say nothing about where to set. Is there a rule of thumb on where to best set this to keep slop to a minimum yet retain the cam saver action?

It says in the instructions to tighten the collar until it is flush with the end of the blue barrel part

Based on what you have listed here, there things you can do do "tighten" the car up to get closer to understeer.
If you add 1mm of mount shim to each of the front arm mounts, this will tame the car as you have the narrowest front end. Are you using a spool on asphalt?

OK...now I see that. Pic is not all that clear IMO...but makes sence since that is short of completely tight. . Thats about where I ended up "this time". Hopefully it stays in one piece.

Default Shock Help

Hey All,
Just started building my TC5 and want help with achieving zero rebound with the shocks. I don't know how to approach this as I am used to building Xray shocks. Any help would be appreciated in building these shocks.

Brandon, I know you are the expert on the car... But I added one degree of Anti Dive to the front and this help a lot with the taming down the steering... Just want to see what you think of this setting change... I'm using the setup EA gave me.. If this helps... I'm also running at 40% on the dual rate in the radio....

Thank you for your help

Yes, I have using a spool on asphalt with 5cell 4.5 Brushless, tried toward & backward battery position, backward is better for tight track and increase rear traction to get more stable, but the problem is when under acceleration to come out the corner the rear traction easy to break loose. Do u have a good solution to solve this problem?
