Hello guys,

I was looking at the posts, there a lot of information here.

The thing is I race in a track that is bumpy, and have low grip (asphalt track).

The tires are handout, also the motor, Lrp Stock Spec 9.5.

On the first race of the season, my car did not well, to tell you the truth I ended in the last position.

I am using the ITF top deck and chassis, blue springs in the front and silver in the rear.

The car was completely loosing the rear on the corners.

I am thinking of using the gree spring on it and I am going to use a thinner oil on it.

What else should I look for.

Some guys told me to use 6 degrees caster blocks on the front, what it will help on my driving?

I am from Brazil and I would like to leave my messenger adress, I do not know if I am allowed to that but there it goes: [email protected]

The idea is to have contact with other TC5 drivers to exchange information, on my track most started with this chassis but now most have migrated to S400 and Cyclone TC.

I want to keep going with the TC5.

hey guys i was wondering if i could get some other opinions on running the itf top deck? most of the guys i run with here in socal say that it is not a necessity only another tuning option. I am currently running a modified stock top deck that allows more flex, however when i have compared the torsional flex that my car has compared to the cyclone, xrays, and 416 they all seem to have more flex torsionally then the tc5.

thanks for the help

Personally I run both upper and lower ITF chassis parts. But I do not use the orings unless the track has little grip then I use them. A modified top deck is okay but it is still thicker then the ITF top deck and that will make a small difference in torsional flexibility.

What can you expect from going from 1.5* to 2* for camber?

More traction where you put it. If you go from 1.5 to 2 up front you'll get more steering. If you go from 1.5 to 2 in the back you'll push more.

Anything over 2 and you're going past the optimal point.

Hey, I changed springs, then body and still wasnt able to get rid of the push I was having and realized I didnt have another heat to try toe out...will .5* of camber overcome the push better than .5* of toe out? thanks guys.

Are you able to lay down your shocks? Have you played with roll center?
