I have the same problem as Hebiki with the ITF chassis. My car is real tweaked with it and I can't seem to get rid of it. With the car sitting at 5mm ride height all around, my left rear tire weighed in at around 400 grams while the right rear was 310 grams. Right front tires was 398 and left front was 289

Can you send me a pic? I can usually tell by the picture what is goin on.

1) Check the arm mounts and make sure you have the same amount of shims on the left side that you have on the right side.

2) You can shim a little but not more than a millimeter

3) make sure the spool is installed correctly.

That should help...

I run the Stock chassis and top deck with no problems.....ITF/Flex helps in loose conditions....me personally I did not the like ITF especially at High traction tracks. The suspension couldn't do its job, plus the shocks collars were set at all different heights to get the tweak out, which made the car a little bit off balance, thus producing differences in weight on the scales.

I do suggest the ITF for loose conditions. But I personally have had no problems (tweak issues) or lack of performance with the stock chassis and upper deck, actually I have had increased cornerspeed and the car was alot more consistant. Let your suspension do the work.

Let me know how it comes out.

The car WAS better when using the stock chassis. I tried the ITF cause it appeared all the factory guys were using it and so I thought there was a good reason, but I don't like it. I'm normally fighting for the win in stock using my tamiya but I got lapped twice on sturday with the tc5 and the itf...just too inconsistent. I'll be going back to the stock chassis tonight.

I did all the tweak tricks...my car just doesn't balance with the itf. I have to really jack the shock collars to even things out.

we don't have much in the way of foam racing here. Rubber is the only game in town. I'm sure the stock chassis will work for me.

AGREE, I have also use the stock chassis with ITF top deck with very good result and no tweak issue even after crash, but my friend's ITF chassis was tweak and check it with a flat glass then found it wouldn't flex back.

Questions?? Tc5 Spool

After looking at my car today, I found out what happened was the steering knukle was broken on the bottom screw. That was causing the problem. Anyone know if someone is making aluminum steering knuckles for TC5.
