thanks redwood. so i had the right idea after all coz ive been removing the forward screw as well in the hope to make chasis flex more consitent left to right. thanks again.

You've got balls thinking of putting diff balls to your slipper spool

Everything is the same except no diff balls in the gear and use spool pads not diff rings.

I noticed that the driver set-up sheets for asphault showed that none of the drivers use front diffs...are there any circumstances where a diff would be used? I am running on a small track(10-12 seconds).

hi Guys

after nearly a week of careful building, my tc5r is 99.5% finished

the .5% is the fact that there is no antenna holder in my kit 8(

only a $2 part, but will take 10 days to ship over the New Zealand

comming from Xray touring cars i wasnt sure what to expect from the tc5r kit, after reading all 600 odd pages on here, i was quietly confident with the choice to come back to associated (i have six rc10s, from the original to the b4).

once the antenna holder arrives, ill be looking forward to some serious testing.

Quick question (well a couple)

Been looking at T2,008 but a tc5r has come up at a good price.
All my racing is outdoors on asphalt using rubber tyres, 17.5T / 10.5T.

What are the tc5r like?
Is there any major complaints / issues with them?
What are the common parts that break / wear?
Are there any "must have" upgrades?

Thanks

Titanium racing are the company that was mentioned earlier, and the layshaft is here:

http://www.titaniumracing.com/product.asp?prodnum=450

I don't have one but I have been told they make excellent spools too, which remove the need for bone blades, can't be a bad thing.

I'm not too sure about that, since we are talking about torsional flex from front to back, if you want to have more by removing the middle screw then the bulkhead itself would have to flex, which is unlikely. I don't think you gain anything by removing the middle screw, but perhaps I am wrong, laptimes tell the truth in the end.

Regards

Neal

I dont know what 4 screws you are talking about. The spool pad are a replacement for the diff rings.
