I don't know about the size of the caged thrust bearings - my manual is at home. You could just go to the parts manual and see if you can calculate the size based on the kit parts. RC10.com has an online PDF version of all their kit parts lists.

Not sure caged is even necessary. I have no problems with the kit thrust bearings and washers. Maybe start there and see if it's worth trying to go that route?

Default Question on Tools for TC5

Does anyone happen to know what size tools that are needed for the TC5? I want to buy some nice tools and my kit isn't due for a couple of days. Instead of buying a set and still needing some more tools I figured it best to ask here and get the exact tool sizes needed for the screw/hex/ball drivers. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

You'll want a 1.5, 2.0, 2.5mm hex driver and a good quality 2mm ball hex driver for arm mounts. Also a 5.5mm and 7.0mm socket drivers for hex nuts and wheels removal.

a good 5/64 alen/hex driver should be good.

That's true. The tire "rolls" over the insert. The CS tires are the worst in that problem. The insert is just a little bit to small. You should check the tire's after each run if there still correctly glueed on the rimm. This will provide a lot to. You will not be able to get rid if the line with changing your camber, so just put that back at 1.5 or 2 degrees.

Rolling over the tires has also a bit to do with the set-up. For example an Xray doesn't wear its tire's as hard as an Tamiya because of the building of the car. Also the set-up does a lot. If the car is slightly understeerd the front tires wear much harder then when the car is slightly oversteerd.

Why is it always the inside. Simpel, when you steer to the left. the right front tire (off throttle) has the moste pressure on it. end the car is pushing real hard on the tire. The tire is slightly rolling over his rim . The left front tire has less pressure and doesn't roll that much (let's say not).

Here in holland most of our tracks ar counterclock wise. So we do wear a lot or front right tires... for example i'm training at 4 Left Rear tires :P these are still good.... Dont forget, check the glue of the tires!

Good Luck

Correct what you say, but where do you need a 2.5mm for? The Motor screw's? I'm using 2.0's there.
Theres no other place with a possible 2.5 screw in my TC5R? (or am i just not awake yet ? )

Greetings Robert

i have thought about this before and i think it might be because of 2 things! 1 because obviously your front digs in for grip but the other is probably the spool making it worse!! we never use to have that much wear before brushless when we used to run diff and one way! so i think we just have to accept it if we want to be fast!!

Default tc5

With the tyre wear on the outside check the wheel if it has score marks on the dish side from digging into corners if you have chips missing most likely -and yes make sure you run a bead of glue around the tyre both sides of the tyre so it stuck well to the wheel.
Maybe if there is too much slop for the bearing inside the steering block may also be the cause?
Try stiffer antiroll bar on the front see what that does?

Thanks for the help Vern, I just ordered that EZ lipo side plate to go along with the bottom plate.

My kit gets delivered today, its the first kit I've built in 15 years so I'm pretty pumped to get it built and running.

the plastic pieces that fit on the end of the cv shaft which fits in the outdrive seem weak! is this commen? or are only mine falling apart easy? I'm getting good grip this shouldn't be the reason!
