Can someone post the part number for the long silver ball studs. Are they 8mm or 10mm?? I am having trouble keeping them tight when I use shims under mine? Maybe I have the wrong ones?
Thanks

Are you running foam or rubber? If rubber, how old are the tires?

Any suggestions on what is goofy with my car? Going to rebuild my diff this week ... but anything else to look at?

Mr Crum is correct.

The TC5R comes with all the goodies that are ideal for rubber tire racing.

I just bought a TC5 from Amain for $275. I figure all I will need is the Slipper spool for $30 and the ITF top deck for $20 and there is the R...

trd, sounds like they are price matching Tower ($340 - $65 coupon).

Youd also need the IFT bottom plate, alu. outdrive for the rear, and the countersink washers/o-ring for the top deck, along with the softer springs to make it an R.


On another note, does anyone have a setup for stupid-bite asphalt? lookin to get in some practice at the track for the ROAR paved nats this year, and the only way to describe the bite that they get there is dumb. im almost thinking a carpet rubber setup would work. Anyone have any insight on this? (didnt the '06 paved nats take place at a situation similar to this?)

Do you think the lower chassis is absolutely necesary? I have the springs from my retired tc4. I figure I could order two spools and use the outdrives from the other for the rear and have spare spool parts. On another note and I hate to ask but I couldnt find a setup sheet for my type of track. I run on a very small track (7-9 seconds). Using brushed stock, what would be a safe gearing starting point? What would a safe weight for the shocks be to start off with? Asphault sprayed with soda.

It will make a difference, especially in low bite (most rubber tire stuff). I would guess that 116/28 is a safe starting point, i could be +- a few teeth though. 40wt is probably safe on the oils
