What version of the TC5 are you getting?

The TC5 is metric and the TC3 is standard, so those TC3 parts wont work...

If you are running any type of rubber tire racing, the TC5R is the kit you want. It comes with all the dialed rubber tire goodies...

-custom made motor mount
-custom made pinion
-novak gtb 3.5
-lipo
-stiff susp.
-VERY good grip

with that setup you'll go 100mph+ but you need a good radio because you'll lose range fast also you need a smooth enough place to run.

ohh and you can't buy a pinion that size!


so you race your tc5? on track?

Thanks for your help, but I meant foam tyres, I was so tired that day =D

Also, how do I work out what I'll need (pinion and spur gear) from the gear ratio?
