Try a 93T spur and a 42T pinion. MAybe up or down a few pinion teeth depending on the track but that should get you close.

TC5 Battery Strap
Wondering if you guys could help me out.
I'm looking for a measurement center to center of the battery posts. Trying to find a suitable battery strap for a project of mine.

Many thanks

Do you have to run blades to run the spool? What does have a .5 degree of toe on the rear hub help? Thanks in advance!!

I know there is someone in the process of getting some aluminum caster blocks and rear hubs machined.... I am choosing to not name any names cause i dont want him to get pounded with pm's ... LOL

There should be some testing done on those parts within the next couple of weeks and if everything goes as planned he will be producing them for all to buy.

Stay Tuned !!!

For the record, X-Ray t2 '007 front hubs will fit the TC5 with a few washers for spacing. I have not directly bolted it to the TC5 but compared closely.

Alot of people are doing that, myself included. It adds flex to the chassis and increased traction. 4 O rings rear end of top deck.

It gives the car a bit more rear traction. This car has a ton of steering(IMO) so slightly locking the rear end in doesn't hurt. The last time out I wanted a bit more rotation in the corners so I was thinking of taking them off rather than change the set up with a shock change or camber change.

Does this include rubber tires on capet or is this mainly for asphalt ? Has anyone come up with a good setup for stock rubber tires on carpet ?

I believe the whole team used something very close to the Juho LRP Masters setup at Vegas...I would start with that...
