I am looking at a new chassis (well second hand).
I have narrowed it down to either a T2'008/009 or a tc5r.
Racing will be rubber in 17.5 / 10.5
What are peoples thoughts?
Would like to hear from someone who has owned both.

A friend of mine that have been racing for 15 years would say 009 because of the convinience as far as adjustability. I only have a year into racing and I own TC5R for me this one is a keeper I got most of the bugs out of it, it's dialed to the track that I always race on and parts is easily available through LHS. The only flaw with the TC5 is if you are not sure what gearing to use on that specific track it's a liitle pain in the arse to change the pinion,specially if you are running 17.5 class with that motor you need atleast 35t 48 pitch pinion it's not gonna fit through the motor mount and it"s not a quick change with 10.5 or faster motor you should be fine.

I still go for TC5 I just love what I got.

to help u with ur pinion gear swaps u should try tyaking the screw from the motor mount to the rear bulkhead out then wen u want to change gears u just undo the 2 screws that hold the motor mount to the chassis and it all come out in ur hand btw tc5 the absolute best tc on the market

Haven't had a problem after a year and a half
The transponder doesn't even have a scratch on it still.

that works, closer to the ground so less chance of missing a lap...

When you guys place your electronics, do you pu them at the edge of the chassis or tuck them into the center? I have everything as close to the belt as possible and I think ive narrowed my problem of push to not enough weight transferring to the tires...the battery tray put the pack way outside the chassis and that gave me the idea...thanks for any help...

Well, a push by definition should be not enough weight on the front tires at the point you're getting the push. I'm certainly not an expert but I wouldn't necessarily link your push entirely with L/R balance. While the weight needs to be balanced, I would think a large imbalance would show up as uneven handling or tweak (push one way, loose the other or somesuch) rather than as a consistent push in both directions.

Just my 2 cents, but after I balanced the chassis I would look very closely at my suspension set-up and try to get more weight to the front tires at whatever part of the corner you're having the push.

Thanks...I tried using 1 color stiffer spring s in the rear to transfer more weight to the front but it still pushed...Im going to move the electronics including battery, try it, then try the orings in the four rear screws, try it, then try a spool instead of diff in the front...

You should START with the spool, not leave it for last, as it will help you a lot.
Also try adding more drag brake to your esc, that will transfer more weight off throttle and add more steering coming into the corner
