The TC5X has more bite to it, and makes the car have a more balanced feel. Because it has more traction, it allows you to be more aggresive on the setup

Most likely you need to tighten up the tension a bit.

The plastic ones will actually outlast the alum ones for stock, I'm considering going back to them.

Yes, please let me know how you like the offset holder. I will be running this in the 13.5 class and the tracks are going to be medium size/semi technical tracks. The surface will be on both carpet and asphalt with rubber tire setup. Also, the front spool is an optional item or is it included in the kit?
I will post after I get back from racing on Saturday. I will be running 13.5 on a tight asphalt track with medium to high traction.

I got to test my setup today with other cars, the was solid the rear end wasn't sliding and causing the car to spin. Took me a month to get it there. I can now drive the car faster and hopefully get it under 20 seconds a lap

This is such a good car, only had it for a month and it's already awesome. The car has been a worthwhile purchase.

I run on a low-mid bite track, sloped, large as 1/5 scale, Nitro, and Electric all race on the same track.

ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

These are 10.5's so I'm slower with my 17.5

I run 10,5T with 64DP. And have an 100T spur installed. With 100T almost all the tracks here in holland that suits me well... The Car rans much smoother and most of all more silence on the track.

My best regards

Sorry I forgot to mention that, the arms are on position A and I use the AE droop tool for checking droop. I've only got the AE droop tool and I got 3 of them.

Maybe I will try it with second tc5 when I build it

Btw with steering link 1-A, car is not to nervous?
