No one at our track has had any servo issues. What servo are you using?

How much are the 4 degree c-hubs and the price on the 1 degree rear hubs?

My servo is nothing special but my TC3 never broke a servo and had many bad smashes over the 4 years Iíve used it.

After investigating I can't actually get the servo saver to kick in so I'm wandering how I slacken it off. Do you just slacken it off from the servo saver knuckle?

I would guess that it is a plastic gear servo, and if so it won't help to back the servo saver off as it will still most likely strip the servo (plastic geared servo's break by just looking at them )


Also I was at the local track, and ended up breaking the servo saver tube, which in-turn caused me to sit out of the main . If it wasn't so thin on the threads, then that might not have happened.

the sevo saver in the tc5 is alot better than the one in a tc3, so it didnt make any sense to me. Ive got a 94358 in 5 that was in my tc3 for a couple of years and ive smacked the wall plenty hard, broke arms and shock towers etc and never had a servo problem

hey all,

I'm looking at a TC5 for rubber ashphalt racing. Just wondering what the difference is between the ITF chassis and the standard. Also what option parts would be a good idea to order with the chassis for this kind of racing?

Thanks,

Ben.

Congrats to brian jucha for his 3rd place overall finish in the 13.5 foam class at the novak race.

Also congrats to keven hebert for his awesome runs in both the 10.5 and mod triple a mains.


This car is the real deal.


brian jucha had the tc5 dialed in this weekend and the car was amazing.

Also congrats to the one and only Uncle Kenny Pepe TQ and Win for the masters division, alot of guys copied and ran his rubber tire setup and had amazing results as well. Uncle Kenny at age 60 was rocking the TC5 in the master and was the BQ for 13.5 rubber qualifying 11th out of a total of 60 plus guys in the class.

Scotty Ernst and a couple of others made the 10.5 rubber triple a mains, and there were a few TC5 cars in the 13.5 main as well. Mr. Stellflue won the b main for 13.5 foam as well.


Awesome weekend for the car. I will check out the list and get the total count of tc5 cars in the mains.

The ITF chassis is not as thick which allows the car to flex a little bit more in the chassis. I don't know the specific details about it's characteristics other than that. I am running it with rubber tires on carpet.

Depending on the size of the track you will want a one-way (smaller tracks) or a spool (larger tracks) and some softer springs. Then you should be all set.

I got my TC5 put together and took my time doing it. This is a georgous car. The only issue was putting the diffs together. Getting the bolt to catch the nut in the T-cup. Got everything done and used Bob Stellflue set-up from the reedy outdoor asphalt race. The only change was gold spring in front and red in the rear. I used the stock chassis and the stock upper deck without the o-rings and believe it or not the car was on rails. I used the DNA2 body and i dialed out alot of steering. I was so nervous cause none of my parts came in and the local hobby shop's didn't come in yet either. This by far the best handling car i've ever owned and i've had shummacher, x-ray, and HPI. In my opinion blows them out of the water.

I ran a few laps and checked the diffs and they worked great and the belts were set perfect too. Front set all the way loose and the rear set to Bobs setting. I ran the 19t class with some really good drivers and WON the qualifers and the Main. Looked over car at the end of the day and not one problem. This car is perfect for my driving. Every where i pointed it it went and its was very fast. AE YOU GUYS DESIGNED ONE DAMN GOOD CAR!!!!

Little update on my tc5. I have been running for 4 months on carpet with foam tires and gotten it pretty good. I really like how durable the car is and how easy it is to work on.

A few things I learned, not all rear hubs are 0 when they say zero, I have had two that where about .5 deg

Also the car needs a little weight on the battery side to be really balanced

I had to stretch the front belt by hand to get the car really free.

I am now switching over to rubber tires.

Couple of questions,

What is the best front bumper and when are the harder arms coming available?

P dub has the best bumpers but I still have the stock one on my ride.

Was following the race on Live RC - congrats to the TC5 runners. Any chance of getting some setups (particularly interested in Kevens foam setup)

Cheers

I just want to thank all the Associated guys (Bob, Keven, Jucha), for all the help this weekend. By the mains , my car was totally dialed, but not my driving

Jucha's setup for foam is excellent. I think both Bob S. and Keven were gravitating towards it, but I don't want to speak for them. The car was awesome through the sweeper, and carried a ton of cornerspeed.

Jucha's seup-as far as i know. Maybe he or someone from AE can correct me if i miss anything

Front
ride ht 4.5mm
camber -1.5
caster 6*
toe 0
hex spacing .5mm
wheel base 1mm shim in front
steering link 1A
bumpsteer 4mm
diff ball-cam a setting 1
tire jaco dbl pink 55.8mm
1/2 (13.5)to 3/4 (10.5)dope
shock
57 losi piston
60wt oil
purple spring
full rebound
shock 2a
camber link 4
stock ballstud
arm mount 2A ff/fr
shims 3* ff/fr
droop 1.5mm
silver swaybar
hard arms & caster block

ReaR
ride height 4.5
camber 2.0
toe hub 1.0, 2* overall toe (this is an aggressive setting, .5 or 0 toe at the hub mellows the car out/reduces rotation, when overall toe is the same)
hex spacing 0
wheelbase full long
diff ball cam a setting 8
tire Jaco dbl pink 55.8 full dope
shock
Losi 56
30 wt oil
full rebound
gold spring
shock 3A
camber link 5B (I like this a lot as the car is a bit easier to drive. 5A would be very twitchy on hi bite)
black ballstud w/2mm spacer
arm mount 1b fr/rr
shim 2*fr/3*rr
droop 1.5mm
no roll bar
hard arms

I was a couple changes away that made the car better for me.
Foremost was the steering link at 2B. 1A was hard for me to hold on to(very reactive), and I felt like i wanted a bit more overall steering. The 2 position on the bellcrank mellows the car out, and B tends to have a bit more steering all the way thru the turn.

I also went one hole in on the rear shock tower, which made the car rotate a bit more. My car seemed to touch the chassis edges a lot at the rear (even before I moved the shock), so i ran the black sway bar at the rear to help this. The other guys' cars didn't seem to be touching. That may have been my shock building coming into play.

Bob also said the hard arms are in at AE, so they should be coming out very soon.
