rear toe will help plant the car on turn in toe out on the front 1 degree will help with turn in try a half degree first then if it gets better try 1 degree

Its sad its a brand new kit. I should've bought a Shuey.
had a few issues like that but not with the kit it was parts after the fact im test drivin a schuey today i will let u know how it felt

Cool, rear traction was great, the push was the problem, for the front, are you talking about toe out? Is 1* per wheel or half each?

Try some .5 degree rear hubs with a total of 3 degree rear toe...that will free her up a little...

Besides original soft hubs, hard hubs from TC5F and Integy ones I'm not aware of any others. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Hey Guys

Ive got a TC5R coming tomorrow and was wondering if there is anything for me to look over on the car or be aware of and what spare parts are needed.

I have skipped through a couple of pages on here but im sure i have missed out on more.

If you could help me out it will be great.

I bought the hubs, steering blocks and servo saver just to see what they were like. Only thing I liked was the servo saver. The bearings did not fit into the steering blocks flush and overall was not impressed by the quality
I never even installed on car.

Has anyone else noticed that when full steering is used, the front wheel chatter and seem bound? Just holding the car in the air and with little throttle applied, the front wheels chatter. When I turned the end points down to the point where this didnt happen, the wheels werent turned far enough to be able to make corners. Should I just turn the EPA to full and not worry about the chatter?

Team Tamale was making them a while back. I bought the front C hubs that are good quality...but I dont see them on their site anymore. Someone can email them and ask if interested.
