I believed they are available online as far as your local hobby shop you will have to ask them to order it for you.

What's the biggest tip to help the halding out on this car(tc5)

I'm not having any problems just want to try out, while I'm out on a track or just cruzing/testing

I removed the halding from my car as unneccessary balast. I found I was a lot more consistent without halding and it freed up space for important go-fast stuff like Phizer valves and muffler bearing.

It definately looses the rear belt up. It was already installed on a car I inquired in a trade.

That and make sure you have plenty of stick on weights. Nothing that could look good, that would make your car slow for cruzing.

Do the Losi Pistons fit without modification or do you need to sand the pistons down a bit? I remember doing this back in the early TC3 days but can't remember.
