The only other thing I could think of was maybe you have different shims on either side for setting the rear toe. That could cause an offset in one side, or maybe lower hinge mounts are different and you have not noticed. It is usually something very simple that is over looked. I tore my whole car down for it pulling to one side and did not think to check something like a bearing first! I was looking for something bent!

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You could have a bent ball stud.

I would just adjust the turnbuckles for equal camber and run it.

Hey Rick,

What are the chances of getting a copy of your invitatational setup from the Reedy Race?

From what I saw on Live RC, you guys were pretty dialed when the track was green.

Thanks

Hey guys. Just wondering on the TC5 why its design has the motor way out on the left side so much? It seems to have wider chassis than most other cars, I thought the idea is to keep as much weight central as possible? How does havein the motor so far on the outside effect the car handling? Would the car handle much better and be more balance if the motor was brought in more by like 5-7mm, like Xray 008 and Mi3?

I have another question, stupid as it may seem, is the Reedy race a rubber tire asphalt race? I am thinking it is but I can not remember.

thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've done it and the turnbuckle lengths are off a little bit but I'm sure I wouldn't feel a difference. Thanks Katfish as well for your suggestions.

They have have 2x as many notches, so instead of 8 it has 16.
