Anyone have issues with the screws that hold the caster block in on the steering block backing out? I put both new parts of each and I still had the screw on the bottom back itself out. Any ideas?

Check out robk's method, on rebuilding AE shocks, it's on this thread somewhere,it works great.

Could any tell me how long the TC5 front belt is?

My friend is looking for a belt that is 250/260mm centre to centre using TC drive pulley's,.

I don't have the number in front of me but the belts on all the brands of car use the same 3 mm pitch. So you can do the math to figure out how long a belt you need. (center to center x2)+(1/2 pulley one)+(1/2 pulley 2)

The flange is supposed to go in the caster block right? What screw are you using?

I went looking for a belt one day at the hobby shop. From best guess the tc5 frt belt is 225. Losi, xray,tam and sch are all shorter than the tc5. from 205 to 217.

Anyone have a blank editable PDF of the new setup sheet? The RC10.com site says its updated 5/22 but its still the old one. Its a lot better as far as layout.

Also what would be the difference in terms of feel when you go from 3A to 2A?

The TC5R is for rubber tire racing While the TC5F is for foam tires
