Foam Tires = TC5F
Rubber Tires = TC5R

Are you going to be running rubber or foam tires. Rubber tires is the R, foam tires is the F.

I say buy the F for carpet then buy the Exotek chassis conversion or you can get the ITF conversion top and bottom chassis for indoor concrete or the other way around. The F and R conversion will be the easiest to convert you should be able to transform your car in less than half an hour make sure you use a clear double sided tape that way it will not leave any residue.

I live in Edmond now. I was thinking of coming over to Tulsa to run. What you running now days. WHen you say hard parts, i assume you mean arms, hub, c blocks etc. What you been up to? You guys going to enid for the pizza race. They reduced the sedan track in enid. What tires do I need in Tulsa.

If you have an Exotek chassis, you won't be able to turn your servo 90, it hangs off the chassis. If anyone has an idea, speak up.

I'm going to cut my mount up next.

Servo tape the part on the chassis. Should have enough surface to hold.

Midnight, I gotta agree with Steve. We are. Both running TC5R with hard parts, nothing wrong with the kit chassis. Come on over and run with us!

Thats whats up. What time do you guys start running? When did you move to Owasso. What setup are you guys running? So those blue jaco work all year long. I thought foam tires were the ticket for carpet.

I thought about it. Only thing that worries me if it gets hit because it is going to be hanging off the chassis a bit. I guess I could use one mount and 3m tape.

Just finished up the build of the 3rd TC5 I've owned. Exotek Chassis, narrow bulkheads, TRF shocks and some other goodies. Flipped the belts. Perfect balance with no extra weights. Currently sitting at 1424g with a LTC-R body. Here are the pics.

looks good. How big is that spur gear? is it 64p? Can you take a photo from the battery side with the battery out? I'd like to see how much lower the spur sits.

Here you go. Let me know if I captured what you wanted. It is a 98T 64 pitch gear. The belts are pretty loose with the new bulkheads so it sits pretty low compared to the stock.
