I tried to do a quick search through this massive thread, but I couldn't find it, so I'm sorry if it's been asked before, but does anyone know what size the screws are for the spool kit?

Hey guys I just got done building my new TC5 and got a little track time with it but I have the problem of the back end being loose on power. my current setup is this
shock weight is 40w all around
associated blue in front and silver in back
2nd from top shock position all around
0deg camber in front, -1.5deg in back
0 toe in front
#3 roll centers all around
one way in front
Novak GTB/13.5
RP-30 tires on carpet
sauce full rear and small strip on front

any input on what I might change to get more on-power traction in the rear

thanks

decreased your droop.........rear is lower than front..........give it a try using droop gauge given by associated TC4........ front 4 ,rear 3 or 2 .......... you got so much traction using one way in front..........with TC4 i'm using 40wt losi front with red associated spring and rear associated silver spring, 30 wt losi...., camber: -1 deg front and -2 rear camber rear toe block 2.5 deg ............

also dont forget to lube your rear ball diff and take care of the diff plate so there is no over tighten that can damage the diff plate........

Rear toe is achieved thru the double ended shims that have a C on one end and a hole thru the other. 2.5 degs is the thinnest shim and the medium shim together, behind the rear end mount blocks your talking about.

Shims are 1 deg.-- 1.5 degs.-- and 2 degs.

The dots on those blocks indicate the mount height of your arms. Read the last page on your manual, it shows all these things.

Just got a one- way for the front of the TC-5. I know it's problaby in here somewhere, I just don't feel like looking through all the pages of posts, ok here's the question, where do the included o-rings go that come with the one-way kit? And what is the difference between the top plate that comes with the kit and a ITF top plate? We run rubber tired 13.5 with lipo on carpet and I noticed that the set-ups on Associated web site for rubber tired carpet call for the ITF top plate. Thank you (in advance) for the help!!!

You should be running 2A front and 3A rear. Again, refer to the last page setup sheet for arm mount A and B hole location. There are 2 different holes thru the bulkheads the screws can go thru.

Download the setup sheet in this post TC5 setup 13.5 BL rubber--carpet and use it to start. It will get you close.

I'm running that except no ITF chassis and 4 deg castor blocks...close everywhere else.

hopefully they will release something..
the car definitely needs them a bit too much flex in suspension for foam carpet.

Hmmm. Is there a team driver out there that can confirm this?

For our carpet track (Stockton, Ca) Ryan C. asphalt set up works pretty well with a oneway installed. The only changes made so far were going to blue springs in the front (as the bite is coming up I may go back to gold today) and laying the rear shocks down one hole and droop is 2mm front and 3mm rear above ride height. Other than that I have a pretty good car. It's starting to push some in the corners and I think that might be due to the front springs being a little soft. For practice this morning I will try the golds again and then make droop adjustments. It's nice to know that a dialed asphalt set up works indoors as well. Just take out my spool and throw in a oneway. The high bite carpet set up's from the AE team guys don't really work too well out here. We have med bite at best on carpet for weekly club races. This was run in stock and 19 turn. This weekend is our little two day carpet race so I will get a ton of track time and with me running lipo practice wastimes were looooooooooooooooooooong yesterday
