Building my TC5 right now. I'm about to throw this diff assembly into the trash can. How'd you guys get the nut on the diff?

You might have scraped some material down to the bottum of the diff nut holder when you pushed the nut in...if so use a exacto to clean it up on the bottum...also its important that the nut is level and seated all the way in the holder...

also make sure to pre-compress the spring in a pair of pliers...

finally, it is possible for the diff screw to push the nut up in the holder when you insert the screw....then the screw wont reach...if so insert a 3mm hex wrench in the nut holder when tightening the diff...that will hold it at the bottum of the nut holder...

good luck, hope you figure it out...

What are the common break items on this car? Does anyone make aluminum steering blocks for it?

Right now I am running a 104 on it and it is a Kimbrough gear, 211. I run 13.5 with rubber tires and some pretty large pinion's as well. Right now I have a LRP in it with this setup and no issues getting the gear ratio that I need right now.

This is racing on tracks here in Brisbane - Australia (very low to med bite outdoor asphalt tracks). I have found more cornerspeed and steering with this combo.

I have also started running with the hard plastic suspension components as well and this has made the car really consistent to drive fast as well as being much more sensitive to minor changes to setup.

In short:
  1. std chassis with ITF top deck is a great combo (fast and consistent) my choice pick
  2. std chassis with std top deck is okay at best
  3. ITF chassis with ITF top deck is a great for really low bite, but does suffer when grip levels come up
  4. ITF chassis with std top deck is okay (fast, but not consistent to drive)
These are my personal findings running on the tracks we have here. (5 cell mod - 3.0t or 3.5t motors) rubber tires on very low to medium bite outdoor tracks). I will post a setup soon (RC Tech doesn't allow excel spreadsheets )

- Leonard.

Hope this info helps.
what about medium to high bite asphalt? the track i race on has more bite than rubber on carpet. would you suggest itf chassis and std top deck, or all std? I'm having trouble finding the best configuration.

I do not have tracks that are classified as high bite or med - high bite. But I did see that some of the AE guys used ITF chassis and topdeck with the hard plastic parts at TITC (which was super high bite).

I have been finding that the hard plastic parts are fantastic and make a BIG difference even when running on low bite tracks. (which is what I normally run on)........so I am currently running and testing the hard plastic parts with the ITF chassis and topdeck at the moment.

Hope this helps.

Well i finally got to run my car today. I bought it the first month it as out and today was the first time it saw a track. It was a carpet track on rubber tires and there was not much traction but i still had fun. Had a spool in the first pack and it was really hard to drive so i put a diff in and it got better. Added a little more dropp in the back on the last pack and it felt much better. Anyway cant wait to get back out, first time in a while i had fun running TC. The only complaint i have is it is a pain to change gearing. By the way anybody have a good spur/pinion combo for a 13.5 Orion on a fairly small track?
