Default torque steer

Hi guys, I bought second hand TC5R and have couple of questions:

1) are there any common causes for torque steer? the car goes straight half throttle and starts to steer left when full throttle is applied. I'm going to rebuild the car anyway as I bought it assembled but I'd like to know what to look out for

2) would you be able to recommend a good starting set up for low-medium grip short asphalt course; stock class (17.5T)?

3) what servos do you guys use?

4) what body would you recommend to increase rear end grip?

Thanks

1st check BALANCE Left/Right

2) would you be able to recommend a good starting set up for low-medium grip short asphalt course; stock class (17.5T)?

Try Rick Howart from www.rc10.com or visit rc-setup site from my signature and try something from me

3) what servos do you guys use?

For me, better is low profile, I have futaba S9551 and for me is better then ko-propo low profile.

4) what body would you recommend to increase rear end grip?

For me works nice mazda speed 6 from protoform, I will try use Blitz Altis,
but is not Efra legal but who care

Thanks
Regards!

1. It is most likely due to your droop screws set differently left to right, a common mistake.

2. Take a look at the factory setups, most are a good start point.

3. I use a Futaba s9551, like a lot of other guys, absolutely no compaints. For my other car I used a savox low profile, a bit cheaper and just as good:

4. If you lack rear grip, adjust the car first, unless you are running a very steering heavy shell (R9-R). I just moved my front shocks in on the bottom and it nicely tamed a very loose car.

Since its second hand, also check that the shocks are the same (you might want to replace the oil just so you know), and that all the suspension stuff is the same (wheelbase shims same L/R, same arm mounts L/R), youd be surprised what some people can do and not notice it...

Check for equal left to right weight distribution
Set tweak and chassis flatness
Make sure droops are equal
See that slipper spool is tight
Make sure bearings are in good condition plus no drivetrain binds
Check diff and outdrive condition
Check bulkheads for flatness


2) would you be able to recommend a good starting set up for low-medium grip short asphalt course; stock class (17.5T)?
Check RC10.com and find the setups page. My personal favorite is the Juho Levanen Reedy Race 09 setup. Keven Hebert setups are also good for 13.5 and 17.5 racing.

3) what servos do you guys use?
This is a matter of taste and depends on your minimum weight limits. A lighter servo will require less ballast to balance the car left/right.

4) what body would you recommend to increase rear end grip?
As far as I am concerned there are two bodies to run - Protoform Mazdaspeed 6 and LTC-R (both lightweight). The LTC-R gives more grip and a locked in feel which is good for modified. I have been using the 6 in 13.5 and it would probably be good in 17.5. I would not mess around with anything else.

Thanks

I was looking at setup sheets on the AE website and need to know if the droop setting on the setup sheets are measured over ride height or with the droop gauge. Thanks!!

Anyone have a good VTA setup they would like to share or can anyone point me in the direction to get a good base setup?

Anyone running the X12 17.5 in the TC5? I have been running the X11 17.5 up through now but someone just loaned me an X12 17.5 for the weekend to try out. Box says 4.0 FDR, so i was gonna start at 96/47 which is 4.09 and go from there with temps. I am still running the TC sphere been using profile 8 on that with the X11. Just wonder what people have been going with such as sticking with 2 dot timing, profile # etc.... Track is carpet 92X36 emulating the '09 snowbirds layout.

Thanks guys
