Wow its lucky I only put a tiny drop on the motor screws. I also did the mount but that was lightly too, except for one where a little bit more came out. Should be okay I hope.

I have a general setup question -

running foam tire on carpet, my car is dialed in the high speed portions of the track, but in the slower corners, the car pushes, and it wants to lift. any ideas on how to get rid of it(ilfting) without making the car a total dump truck?

Try some more droop and some sway bars...

Hide, blue loc-tite is the best thing to use if you want to use any (same thing as AE's stuff). Also you can get loc-tite form any hardwhere store, or department store (like wal mart, in the auto section)

is one side of it lifthing (left or right side when in the turn), or is just a corner of the car lifting.

If it was the first thing I said, then balance your car, and check to see if there is a tweek in it (check to be sure everything is equal, or blanced). If it is the 2dn thing I said, then I really don't know, but I think it could be that your car is too soft.

The only other places (besides where the manual states) I use BLUE loctite are on the tiny screws that hold the hinge pins in place, the screw on the chassis side for the steering bell crank post (so when tightening the screw on the top deck you don't loosen the bottom screw) and the screws in the blue wheel hex's.

more droop will make the lifting problem worse, sway bars in this case are not an option

it lifts on both left and right hand corners, so i dont think its out of balance or tweaked. The car isnt too soft, i have stiff springs on it (car in this case isnt a TC5, but ive seen alot of useful setup tips here, thats why im asking here)

Is it lifting both inside tyres, or just the front or the back, and when is it lifting, into/out of the corner, on/off throttle?

it lifts both (but never rolls), going into slow corners (off power).

Sorry to barge in here guys but is it worth buying the TC5R?
Or
Should I get the foam edition and make some subtle changes so as to use it for rubber?

I would like the option of running both competitively.

How has the "R" been in your opinions?

Great car...best car out for the money. If you are going to run rubber tire get the TC5R, if you want to run foam get the TC5F. Each can be converted to the other with a little bit of work and the opposite chassis setup.
