Use this for the T-Nut replacement, much easier and works better.

I run a 3.5 and use a FDR of 11-12 with good results, thats on nimh though, should be able to run down in the 9's with a lipo if the track will take that much

The old t-nut that some of you say to use. Are the ears as wide as the standard TC5 part? I had an old t-nut and the ears are not as wide so I thought it would create excess movement in the diff assembly.

Why do you want aluminum? My experience with any metal outdrive is that they endup wearing faster than the $5 plastic sets.

recently a freind of mine ended up hitting a wall and broke the aluminum outdrive on the tc5. Under the same circumstances, I would rather break a $5 part than a $40 part.

hey guys,

Will this lipo sack http://www.smc-racing.com/lv_sum5028ld.htm fit into an Associated TC5 that has this http://www.ppdbillet.com/images/600_tc5_base.jpg as the weight plate under the lipo. Basically my concern is that the 5000 pack may sit too high and not fit under the upperdeck.

I have both of them and have never had problems. I have 1mm under the rear bulkhead and roughly 4mm under the top deck, and I'm using foam tape to hold the weight to the lipo.

I no this is not the right thread but anyway. The alligator clips on the Muchmore CTX Cell master, can they be removed. I want to put bullets on instead so I can charge lipos. When I hooked the alligator up to a pigtail with bullets, it says check clips. So I dont no what the deal is....

Please help.
