I always thought aluminum screws into aluminum parts was not a good idea. Something about seizing together. Am I wrong?

Are you running without the screw that attaches the motor mount to the left bulkhead? If you are than that is the problem. Many others have had this issue too without the screw. The chassis is flexing/twisting and with 64p it only takes a small amount.
Hey Corally, I checked all that, I'm a fanatic when it comes to my car. Thanks you for the info anyways

Roadburn, make sure you are running 3 screws in the spur gear. I was only running 2 in mine and had the same problem. I put the third one in and it went away.
Hey Kraig, that thought did pass my mind. To get the proper roll-out, you can't use 3 screws with some of these Spur gear manufactures. The gear just won't line-up for 3 screws. I'm generally always using a 109, 111 and a 113 spur. We generally have the roll-out figured out at my local track. An no matter what my foam dia. get to, it always falls into the range of those spurs. The 111 and the 109 I use the most. Does anyone know of a manufacture that has those gears and you can use 3 screws. Thanks all

I have always used tape. Once I go back to the ITF chassis I will keep an eye on everything.

Just wondering how the TC5 is holding up against the Euro chassis like T2'008, Mi3, Corally etc.. I'm in the market for a new TC and wondering if the TC5 is the answer.

Thanks,

Ben.

on the battery deal, are most of you taping your batteries in or using the brace? I ask because its a common thing im seeing so far the the guys using the battery brace are losing their packs in any decent crash

I went to 2 deg rear toe to keep mine from coming around. you can lower the roll center if you have your diffs raised, that will keep it from turning so hard

Roadburn, have you tried PRS gears? They seem to be a little more stiffer and might hold up to just using 2 screws.

Well and with the PRS spur you can use 3 screws...heck you could use all 6 holes . They are great spur gears.
