yeah the dbl pink/orange up front will take away steering for sure. and saucing the whole front might have helped a little but not as much as the dbl pink fronts

Oh foam setup. I probably won't be doing that again. My car is decent on rubber tires so I am not going to change it at all.

Just got a my TC5 and am getting ready to build it, can somebody pm me a run down of things to watch out for while building the car. Or what to keep an eye on while running the car for the first few time. I know that some of the locals were having problems with the servo saver post. I don't need any setups or building tips, just an over view of the car so far, don't want to read all the pages to find them.

Do a search on shocks or shock building, a few had some trouble. Other than that make sure you keep the arms bind free.
Get yourself a hex driver with a ball end to adjust the arm mounts.
make sure you put the steering knuckles on the correct side.
I think everything else should be easy...

defiantly something worth taking a look at when building the car. Its not so much of a "guide" rather than a good reference when constructing the car. The directions can a be a little "hazy" on some things so its always nice to have something to reference.

Thanks guys, I will keep an eye on the shocks. I was a big fan of the FK05 so very aware of the arm mounts. That is part of the reason That I bought this car. It is very similar to the 05, I even had my top deck cut like the ITC deck is on this car. I am gonna put some of my 05 setups on this car and see how they feel. Keep the tips coming on what to look for.

RRR,

Be very careful with the diff settings, make sure when you run the car for the first time they are tight, if they are too loose the parts may move slightly and its possible to melt the diffs. If done properly then there is no real issue but make sure they are tight.

Thanks Steve. Will start with the diff on the tight side. Is that just for the first couple runs til it seats? And than I can start backing it off til I like it?
I am gonna try to have this built by next friday to go to SIR, Maybe you can make the trip down.

Yes, mostly. Build it like the instructions say, I don't think there is any tip that people use in building the diff isn't already in the instructions but I think the issue is that people underestimate the word tight and they melt the diff when they run for the first time. Just remember that the best way to build any diff is to allow a short period of time for the parts to seat properly, like two short runs, then adjust the diff to normal settings.

As damon said these caster blocks are awesome. I ran them at the novak and they were very good .
Anyone looking for an alternative to the plastic ones these are the real deal.

And if you theck out the website the price is awesome for these castor blocks. Damon has to be crazy !

Can you guy's help me with what pistons were used on the set-up that Juho Levanen used at the US Indoor champs (in Cleveland on 11/2007) with foam tires. The set-up sheet says to use #57 pistons, but I have no clue which ones those are as the only ones I know about that AE has is #1,2, and 3. Is there on of the normal ones I can use (1,2, or 3) instead of the # 57 pistons?

And before you ask, I don't have the hard parts yet, so I will hold out on the set-ups used at the novak race. And I like to wait for it to be posted on AE's site. lol
