Here's my Tc5r as it is at the moment.

anybody who can name all the modification on it that are not on your average tc5r will get a free picture of me getting freaky with a banana.

Tamiya shocks, xray turnbuckles, some kind of unusual rear bulkheads, rpm ballcups

Very close, but not quite!

The ball cups on the steering arms are schumacher one's...

The rear bulkheads are different, the motorside has been made into a single piece so bringing the motor in closer to help with the balance..

and you missed out the yokomo hinge pin through the hub

So many modifications but i'm sure you can't win.... because you have no servo arm

I shall see how many he has made up at the moment and see if he is willing to put them on ebay, which is probably the easiest way of doing buisness..

Default ITF

Hi there, just got a new ITF chassis and the holes have a bigger countersink drilled into them, its not all the way through the chassis but the screws fit into the chassis slightly instead of flush like the old one. Is this normal? or will it effect the tweak in the chassis?
thanks in advance
Lee

I have the same problem on my new TC5R. In particular the screw for the steering post is deep enough that my screw bottoms out without making the steering post tight, and I have to use a spacer. I'm thinking about calling associated to see if I can get a replacement, but it's not brand new, so I'm not sure what they'll say. I got so anxious to drive it after the build that I drove it on my street and I scuffed it in a few places.
