Anyone else running this servo in the TC5 and how did you get it in.
Thanks and God Bless
Mount servo to servo mounts leaving screws loose then mount servo to chassis (one side ) threading screw into servo mount don't tighten down leave loose. Then mount the other side and tighten all the screws. This worked for me.

Hey guys,

I am considering getting back a new TC5, used to have one and have sold it.

The question is I run in an asphalt track with rubber tires, and I am considering using the Exotek chassis kit.

What you can guys can tell me?

Does this chassi kit really works.

I have the kit. There is definitely a difference in traction when using both the upper deck and chassis. I was able to take some rear toe and camber out.

This question has been asked a number of times. Yes, the chassis is legitimate and I would consider it a worthwhile upgrade. I was able to slide my 5000 mAh LiPo with Exotek upper deck as close to center as obtainable without adding any additional weight to the opposite side. I recommend purchasing the upper deck as well to accommodate the chassis set.

+1

After a couple of attempts, this is exactly what I ended up doing also. Worked fine for my 9550 that is same mount size as the 9551....tight but doable.

They move the motor over about 5mm to center the weight in the car.

They sure are, mine have taken a beating over the 6 or so months i've had them and they're still straight as a dye

This is what happens to the standard ones in a big crash (not mine)

This bulkheads are cool and seem to be stronger.

My only concern is in a damage with the spur you have to get the whole thing apart.
