Default Changing arm mounts

When you guys change the lower arm mounts on the TC5, do you take the bulkhead apart or do you just unscrew the mount with the bulkhead attach to the chassis?

With it attached to the chassis but I replaced all the screws with cap head screws so that is a lot easier with a ball driver.

Like Keven said, the stock belts last a long time and are very free. I don't think there is any reason to change them.

I prefer the LTC-R. It think it gove more steering but at the same time it feels easier to drive.

Keven tell me to drill de cap to remove air but now my cap loose oil.

Any one tryed tamyia shock on the TC5 ?

If yes, what is our result?

Thanks
If you are losing oil it is because the bladder is not sealing. If you drill a hole in the cap, use no rebound foam, and HB shock bladders, the TC5 shock will work as well and any other shock. You don't need to spend a lot of mony on Tamiya shocks when you can spend a little to upgrade the stock shocks.

If you have ball 2.5mm driver, you should change screws for 2.5mm hex

Then should be MORE easy ;-)

Not cheap but I think the Hyperion line of chargers are right at the top of the game. With the right charger, they have the update available to let it charge the Hyperion LiPo batteries at a 5c rating. 5000mah pack charge rate of 25 amps? Oh yeah!!!
