thanks for chiming in, mark.

Anyways, as i was saying, my brother's motor off came off the track (corona, as a matter of fact) at 260 degrees. The brushes and comm were burnt but the motor survived, so a cut and new brushes later he was back on the track geared one tooth down. He said it still came off too hot but i didnt see for myself. Regardless, i beleive he was at 23/78, which seems like conservatively low gearing. Im sure his drivetrain is pretty free...
but you guys when i was over blowin the car out said to gear in the 6.25-6.30 FDR range (for that track at least) which if im not mistaken, at that gearing his motor was still too hot o_O

i just want some help with this issue, ill tell him to read this thread too. Thanks.

Could somebody tell me if TC5 has in aftermarket aluminium parts: uprights, c hubs, knuckles, something like this?
And about front body mount support, has this with carbon instead the plastic as orginal?

Best regards

Yes, i have visited before diggity's website, but still very poor aftermarket parts.
About the screws, i think the screws are american style threads.
The another was the problem of arms, it makes remind the yokomo bd ones, are also looked alike very easy to break, i don't know if is the same.

I really want to think buy a new car, i have to think now for coming TC5R.
But as i saw nor RCsquare will release parts for TC5, after the finished to release for TC4.

The screws on the TC5 are all METRIC, not "american style". The have a 2mm heax head too. As for the arms, no, they don't break easy, quite tough actually. I never broke an arm on my TC5 in 4-months of racing.

I highly recommend getting the aluminum c-hubs, this is one of the weak parts on the TC5. Also, get about 20 extra 6x10x3mm wheel bearings, they wore out quickly for me.

Other than that, just get a little extra of parts for the eventual crash or impact with another car.

Team Tamale also makes aluminum C-hubs. VERY good fit and finish on those.

I have the diggity ones and they dont seem that bad. I have not driven the car much so i can not attest to durabilty but they definately have lees slop than the plastic hubs.

I believe 'American style' screw are "imperial", japanese and EU cars use "metric". Metric system uses meters and litres. Imperial uses inches and pounds.
