Are there spares on the wall for the Tc5 at the Coliseum? I have bags of parts for the 3 and 4... but from what i understand nothing interchanges with the 5.
Everyone uses the Jaco Blues at Frederick at leat til the Nats are over. They only cost 23 bucks a set so with the special pricing that will be the tire of choice.

They do have some spares but to be honest not sure what all they carry. I would stock up on caster blocks, a arms, and rear hubs. All the normal stuff.

the jacos have a ton of traction and i cant complain one bit except for they shred all over the tires. ive ripped them down the center and every edge after two weeks. talked to some people and they told me they get this all the time too.

From what I understand it is a special price since Hobbytown chose the Jaco blues for the Nats so they are getting a special price til the Nats are over and then I assume it will be back to 30 bucks or more. For now they are a really good price.

Default front end binding issues

i am having trouble with my car goin into and coming out of corners. it seems to bind the front cvds. in the turn the car seems fine but then while holding the trigger the same speed thru the turn and getting on the straight. as soon as i let off the steering to go straight the car speeds up. even though i am holding the throttle the same. it seems to do the same thing going into the turns. i feel that its really killing my corner speeds. any ideas?

Justin I noticed that about your car too maybe turn the EPA down on your steering see if that helps. Does it have stock bones?

maybe you have more weight on the right side
some cars just when on the gas quickly go to one side. maybe you have a bearing locking up or a cvd rubbing on something

I'm planning to order a complete set of bearings from Avid. Does anyone know what size and quantity I should be ordering to change out all the bearings on the TC5?
