As far as TC's go, yup, back where I started. Not being sponsored anymore, I had my pick of what to run. The TC5 just seemed like the most solid and cost effective car to run. In all honesty I would have liked to go with an Xray, but their tendency to release a new car every 10 months or so and trying to get parts at twice the cost really was what kept me from going that way.

Ouch. I don't know about that. I won't even have my order in until next Tuesday or Wednesday. Stormer shows them in stock for $39.95. That's where I ordered mine. They should be able to get it to you by then.

It is strange to see you not running a Schumacher car thats for sure. When I came back to touring I went witht he TC5 for the same reasoning that you posted. Price wise I can't beat it and since my shop I help out is a dirt oval/offroad place as long as I ran Losi or Associated I would get my parts really cheap so the decision was easy. Associated parts are always easy to get and the price really helps keep me racing.

Well that's why I was away from TC's for over a year. I hadn't had to pay for or pay full price for anything since 2004. Back then a good kit was $275 and cells were $60 a pack and it just seemed like you didn't need as much stuff. When I left Schumacher I picked up a Serpent and quickly realized how much it can cost and how hard it can be to run a European touring car at full price. It was an eye opener. I can't wait until my car comes in and I get to run again.

Do any of you run rcgt on asphalt and do you have any good setup's I can try, or can you point me in the right direction. I have my car working well but not where I want it. Like the shocks, some have told me to use losi pistons and 80w oil in the front or 50w front 40w rear I currently have 30w front w/stock piston #2 and 40w rear w/stock piston#3 the rest is to much to list and I am racing tomarrow.

one quick fix that makes the most diffrence is rear toe atleast 3 degrees or even 3 1/2 per side rear toe in
