Much much smoother and more controlable power delivery cause the belt stretches and absorbs some of the torque. The car just handles much better then the TC4, it turns more. Much better car over all. My only complaint is that for a touring car it does have a bit of slop in the suspension components compaird to the X-Ray and Corally cars.
is your racing on asphalt... get the TC5R. it has all the goodies that make it fast on asphalt (ITF chassis, the right springs/sway combo, etc).

Xtreme RC magazine will have the review in their upcoming issue.

Just get the "hard" suspension components...A Arms, knuckles, hubs and castor blocks. The F uses the same chassis as the standard TC5 kit. It's the R version that uses a different Chassis and Top Deck (ITF).

ITF parts are only for the top deck and lower chassis deck. the lower chassis deck is thinner than original/foam version. the top deck is missing a brace in the back when compared to the stock/foam version.

LATC3 - Your experrience is much different than mine. One my TC5R if I get on power coming out of a corner the rear end immediately spins out. I'm trying to get this worked out, but am not having much luck. Hopefully this weekends time att he truck will yield better results, as I lose so much time coming out of corners its not worth trying to race yet. I'v noticed that the front spool/diff loosens during every run, so ordered the front spool in an effort to have the care driven equally on both ends. Will also try stiffer shocks in the rear, and possibly laying the rear shocks down a little.

Apparently I'm not the only one experiencing this problem, as there is a thread on the ae discussion forum also. Cant wait to find a solution to this problem, as otherwise the car seems to run great!
