Here is a nice building report of mine:

And here you can find the same revieuw (in dutch) but on the last page's there are some pictures. I'll try to make some of both my TC5 and my TC5R.

Hey guys I need a little help. I'm thinking about upgrading from my TA05.
I'm stuck though, I know its mostly preference but I want to make sure I get the right car. I race P-lot road course stock class 13.5 with lipo's. I've been thinking about a Corally RDX, Xray FK05, and the TC5. Any advice would be appreciated,
Should I go with the TC5???

Nobody's making knuckles yet that I know of. Diggity designs is making castor blocks, and Team Tamale was making castor blocks and rear hubs, but I just checked and looks like they bailed on the TC5??

Which is it?? Happy or no happy?? Have to agree on the Xray automobiles, heard they get awesome gas mileage too... but getting in and out of that Speed 6 body is a bitch!!!.

Keep an eye on Integy's site. If you do a search for "TC5" there's a list of aluminum parts that they have listed for sale -- everything has a "pending" status.

There's front and rear knuckles, arms and caster blocks -- in both silver and blue.

Sure, you can try acer racing's carbide/ceramic diff balls. They got all sizes pretty much.
