Hi everyone.

Raced the car at Carpet Wars today here in the UK. Had a great days racing, qualified 2nd in the 13.5 class. Car was great by the end, had a good start to the final and was leading until I made a stupid mistake and took off a front corner

Started off three days ago on Josh's setup he posted here. Went round in a big circle through testing at my track on the Friday night, testing at the venue on the Saturday and through race day on Sunday. Basically changes were to the rear roll centre, rear roll bar, bodyshell as well as playing with a spool. Anyway, setup I ran in the final was almost 100% back where I had started! Tires were the Xenon 28's. Additive was Jack the Gripper with no warmers.

Default Best servo for TC5R?

What is the best servo for the TC5R? Will a Futaba S9650 work or is it too small?

I dont know that it is "the best" but for what it's worth.. I have had a Ko Propo digital low profile servo in the car since day one and love it! I have also heard good things about the S9550 and S9551 servos from Futaba.

Also, the servo you listed is usually used in 12th scale cars. For about $15 more you can get the 9551 and it will fit and perform just fine http://www.nexusracing.com/product_i...oducts_id=1847

As K-Spec stated, go with the 9551. The 9550 has been discontinued and replaced with the 9551.

The 9650 is a 12 scale servo and will not fit and won't be adequate for steering.

I don't think that one is avaiable either, at least not on tower.

Which one isn't available? Both the 9650 and the 9551 are considered current servo's on the Futaba website, which is pretty good at keeping up with their news.

Here is the 9551. Your LHS should be able to get it or you can get it from Tower.

Always use those Tower coupons when ordering from Tower.

Yes, the BLS451 is a good servo for the TC5. Especially if it's a spare and you don't need to buy something else

Can a few of you recomend a good bearing kit for the tc5. My stock bearings are slowly going bad and I am considering replacing all of them with a quality kit.

Thanks
