This seems to be done what I intend to do. I have Losi xxx-s and their diffs are much stronger. It seems that pulley and diff shims will work on TC5, so first we have stronger diff, second, there will be possibility of overdrive (optional losi 41t pulley in front).

Can someone explain where the rubber o-rings are on the top deck and what the balls are doing on the shock tower mounts???

These ball joints on the diff caps were used by Christer Anderson at the lrp master or the DHI (can't remember) this year. These ball joint could be interresting on carpet ith high grip.

White spur : if i'm not wrong, the pulley at the world were white. So if i refer to Juho's setup, i'ts 38 tooth pulley (VS 40 tooth on the black).

The o-ring on the top plate help to get extra flex and therefore helps on low bite situation.

As far as the ball stud on the tower mount, its something we wanted to try on asphalt since it was the first big asphalt race of the season. We went back and forth testing and laptime were the same. the longer links makes the car roll more and makes the car easier to drive but can get too lazy.


As far as the pulley, they are 38 and 22 in the center, It just changes the internal ratio. only rick ran them while the rest of the team ran the std pulleys.

I finally managed to get my diff built up correctly with the spring, for the nut in the plastic t-piece I used a hammer and screw driver to slide the nut in.

Can anyone recommend a good setup sheet for med traction asphalt for the tc5r? Primarily running 17.5 for RCGT but may toss in the 13.5 for super stock occasionally. Thanks in advance.

[QUOTE=Josh Hohnstein;5922933]This is the best I have found to date.

Josh,

Would this setup work well for 17.5?

Hi,

I'm running RCGT at a parking lot prepped track. Would Rick Hohwart's 2008 ROAR Paved On Road Nationals be the best starting point? I saw the 2008 world's setup but since that is more for a high grip asphalt would the other setup be better for me? Thanks!

Keven H mentioned the sizes already. The intent of this modification was to change the ratio for better gearing of higher turn motors like 17.5. We tried them on modified and while they did not seem to make a difference, they happened to be on the car when we were Worlds testing so they stayed. The other drivers have gone away from them but since the last time I raced TC was the Worlds, I still had them on my car.

Can we hope to see the motor modification available soon ?

Thanks.
Sebastien.
Good eye! I suppose I should ask evryone this question - Would you be willing to buy a bulkhead and enlarge the motor hole on the chassis yourselves? Otherwise a new chassis would be required which which would increase the cost of the modification significantly.

Christer Andersson has been using extra long ball links with great success by modifiying the diff bearing caps. The ball link replaces the lower shock tower mounting screws. You just need to add a locknut on the opposing side to hold the shock tower.

This setup seems to lock the car in and can make it feel ore comfortable. I ran mine both ways back to back to back and felt that the overall speed was the same but that that standard link felt more responsive so that is what I ended up with.

This is an easy modification to make with a Dremel. You just need to take a bearing cap and grind it so that it is flat so that it accepts the ball stud flange.

I used o-rings on the front of ther rear bulkhead and the rear of the front bulkhead.

I have built a car for RCGT and I am going to start with the Juho'08 Worlds setup.

I think Rick is talking about the Juho Pre-worlds setup on the AE site....I could be wrong though...

Listed as Worlds testing...

Juyho Worlds TC5

You might have to adjust droop. I ran this same setup at the Reedy Race 09 except I went to droop 6F 5R and the shocks mounted on the inside hole on the rear arm.

Hmmm the longer ball links might be what I'm looking for. I never really like a super fast reacting car so this modification might be just what I'm looking for. Looks like I have something new to try this weekend.

Where do you put the actual orings? I am using them under the rc8 washers udside down which makes like a little housing for them with the countersink on the topdeck...
