I have noticed that I have some play in my steering assembly. Originally i noticed that the ball cup that connected to the servo horn was rather loose. I switched out the turnbuckle/ball cup assembly for a turnbuckle/ball joint assembly like the XRay car has for the connection between the servo horn and the servo arm. This took out a little bit of play but I still have a little bit left.

Anyone switched out all the ball cups and ends for the XRay ball joint connection? I tried this in my truck and it took out a lot of the play.

Any other possible places to look to fix this?

I switched mine out for the Losi JRXS-R ballcups. They work quite well, but oddly are only too tight on my steering ballstuds. Ill just stretch them a little and they should be fine.

The TC5 ballcups are the same as the ones used on the Mini RC18 series, which are all a PITA to use IMO.

Chirag and Getpip,

Look at this....http://www.plumbingsupply.com/tapes.html

Chirag,

I recommend staying with the stock stuff and using a small amount of this stuff around the ball ends. Keep in mind you DO NOT want to remove all the play. It actually helps the car center up to have a little play.

Back from the Carpet Nats. It was a great time. My TC5 was crap, but that's just because I'm not a great wrench...

Keven Hebert and Rick Hohwart were really fast!!!! I was hoping Kev would get it done in the Mod main, but some bad breaks sealed his fate pretty quick. Too bad. Anyhow thanks to the AE team for trying to get me on pace!

I would like to find out what gears fit the car but get the FDR to 3.5 and where do you get them? The closest I got was 64P 88/47 and that is 3.74. This was at both Stormer and Tower. LHS carries the motor but do not stock huge Pinions and do not know where to find them.

I am lost in finding the huge pinions or tiny spurs and in order to eliminate buying a bunch of gears I can never use can someone help me out?

thanks.

PRS goes to like 60 or 65 in pinions, and down to 76 on a spur.
50/88 should be close to what you need

I have a new setup that seems to be working very well for low bite/sealed asphalt using Jaco Blues. We have to use the Jaco Blue as handout tires and it's really testing everyones patients regarding traction/handling.

Hi,

Firts time here.

I want to buy a spool and an alum diff for my TC5, but LApartshouse is short on stock...

Do you know a good store to buy those parts (in Europe or in the States)?

The TC5 is a hell of a car. I had some issues mounting the differencial but for the price it cost me it's unbeatable.

Here in Portugal most of the guys run Xray, Tamiya and Schumacher that cost way too much...and the performance are the same, IMO.

Good work AE.

Thanks
Nuno

Seems like that lipo weight is an EXACT copy of Verndog's lipo weight. Are there any differences?

Hello,

Try Stormerhobbies.com. They are located here in the states, and I think they ship Internationally. They appear to have everything your wanting and great prices. I have known the owner for 15 years and he's a great guy and fellow racer, like us.

Default Leaking Shocks

Help!!!

I'm trying out a TC5, but I'm having trouble with the shocks leaking from the bottom. Only two shocks are doing this...front right, and left rear. Its anoying.

It seems like the shock is not being sealed properly from the bottom, and it leaks a bunch of oil after a run.

According to the manual, the piston is followed by the black cylindrical "thing", then by an o-ring, and then a 2mm spacer. Any tricks to stop the leaking?
