You can get some great deals for TC5's on this site. I just picked mine up for about $150.

Anyone have a good setup for rubber asphalt?

I am running a CO27, with a Novak sport reversible ESC, some Fusion 4200's, and a Hitec 645 servo. Can't jump into the brushless stuff yet.

Any better servo recommendations for under $50? How about ESC?

I should solder the ESC motor wires directly to the motor for lowest resistance?

Just got done building my TC5F and did not encounter any problems at all.. Everything went together smooth. Now time to build the 1/12th scale and then the TC5R..

I will keep everyone posted..

TC5 for $150? Would like to see that.

I tried the new TC5R stock setup and it works awsome. Very close to dialed on the two diffrent tracks I have driven it on.

Mike Blackstock is on board. Cool.

Pretty good, ran mine again this weekend gone (just for fun really). It was pretty good, but the DNA1 just felt that bit better all round really. Can't wait to try the R9-F. (Obviously I'm talking about running foams on carpet here)
