Heh, to short screw? Try use longer one
I change all screws for a-arm mount block to longer one with 2.5mm socket,
now they are better to un-screw by 2.5mm ball hex tool and
hold better a-arms blocks In my case, broken a-arm is better then broken
shock cap

Just the standard length screw, but I do have two toe shims on each side. I'm running something like 3o-3.5o of rear toe-in. I found one longer screw but I didn't have second one of the longer length. Also found that 1/2 the teeth on the rear belt were gone, so I was half AWD and half FWD . Ah the joys of racing

Hehehe

Just go to local store and ask for longer screw M3 with 2.5mm hex from nitro
cars engine mount or something. SH or something similar

What you do to rear belt? What kind of engine eat your belt???

I believe it's a 3x14mm that works well for the inner hinge pin mounts. I still use a button head but yes, a cap head would fit just fine. I have been using the longer screws there since the first time I tapped a board and bent the stock screw and the aluminum top hat piece. Not a problem since.

Hey guys I've had to sell off my TC5, but I have an ITF top plate left still. Up for sale for $15+ shipping. PM me if you want it.

I'm running a Losi 10.5 (for Super Stock), however the car is second hand so the belts were of unknown history. I'm just thankful I kept my FT kits belts which are tighter then the AE replacement belts.

As for longer screws I'm using the one longer screw I've got in the left rear of the car. The wall/pit counter shed/fence I can hit are all on the left hand side of the car. As long as my car doesn't try to join the Xray aerobatic team I should be fine.

Btw, for front belt good option is trf 416 belt 172T, my car on 9.5T/5cell or 10.5T/2Slipo was a little faster, lower drag.

For rear I still use 1st set from kit there is 64T and I can't find
better, TeamBomber doesn't fit, it's 63T and is too short 1T and problem.

Hm, maybe you should put some fluid on tires, not CA glue

It is nice to find info that tc5 can drive

You can get some from Top Racing USA that match color closely (though it doesnt matter since they are hidden. Here are the Tamiya:
