4.44 is really pushing it, but depending on track layout you may try and watch temps. I try to keep 150 and under possibly 160 as the limit.

I've not run geared any less (# wise) then 4.8. On the 2 screws...if those 2 screws are not 180 apart (dirrectly inline with each other), it could throw the center shaft balance out and be tough on bearings, something to watch for anyway.

I have been having problems with the stock bearings as well.

6 x 10 x 4 is a misprint in the manual. The bearing size is 6 x 10 x 3. You should find those much easier.

They are directly across from each other. I'm not particularly found of how the spur gear mounts to the hub anyway. There should be more material for the screws to "bite" into. I had to use shorter screws so that the screw wouldn't come through the hole and damage a pulley blade.

Thanks for the response guys !! That is what I was looking for. There is a diffrents between guys saying a car is junk and it really being junk. I think that the few guys around here that tried and gave up might not have there tuning skills up to par. Plus there is a lot of follow the leader here. If the fast guys doesnt run it than forget about it. I always hated that part. The fast guy switchs cars then 85% of the rest follow suit. Uggg. Car of the week anyone???

I love my xray but refuse to pay that much for parts. That is the biggest reason behind the switch. Same car (basicly) but with way better pricing on parts. Heck, I could even afford to build the car up (one way, alum diffs, etc.) and not break the bank. If it were just me it might not be that bad but, I have my 9 yr old son racing with me so now there is two of everything.

Again, thanks for all the repleys.

Anyone know if their are plans for anyone to develop aftermarket machined center pulleys for the TC5? Or has anyone experimented with using center pulleys from other cars? It just seems to me that their is a lot of slop in the pulleys and I have threaded out my spur gear mount to the point that the screws dont tighten. Any help would be appreciated.


On another note, any timeline on when diggity designs is gonna have their aluminum rear hubs?

Just in case anyone needs to purchase "just" the T-nut that comes with the aluminum diff kit...

Ok the t-nut that comes with the aluminum diff kit is not available separately. It only comes with the complete diff kit. Hope that answers your question.

It's a real shame that someone would have to spend nearly $50 to get just that part?

I brought this up several months ago...the good news is that diff kit is $4.97 not $50.00. That is the plastic outdrive diff kit they come with.

Thanks for the help. Ending up purchasing the TIR version. Man these things are expensive. Couldnt find one at any online store in the USA. Had to go to Australia.

Vern,

That's fine if you're looking for the T-nut for the "stock" outdrives but the one that comes with the aluminum kit has much wider (ears). Yes these will work but it's still not the right part.

Actually when I bought my outdrives I got NO T nut. I have 3 sets and none came with them. The stock ones work fine, just pickup new nuts to press inside and you'll be good to go.

Thanks for the link Verndog. Just ordered a Boca Bearing kit. Spending some bills on my TC5. I guess its all in the name of having fun (have to justify it some how).
