Those are the AE droop gauge values not mm.

Default TC5 Belts

I have a question about swapping the belts location for those of you that did it. Do you have to swap the location of the T-nut from left to right or vice versa? I know on some cars if you install the t-nut on the opposite side the diff will loosen by itself while driving.

Shot this video of my buddy's TC5 during some practice and captured him hitting the wall at high speed... Epic fail! check it out. 48sec.

That video is pretty funny..

I have a question, right now I have a one-way in my car and I am racing carpet.. Would it be better to change to a spool? Such as the titanium racing one?

Try reading this topic. It explains the different characteristics of each: one way vs diff vs spool for the front?

i would get a spool, even if you raced stock. You need the brake, and those speeds stock are racing these days, you really need a spool to brake.
one way is just for easier front turning and roll through corners really, and no brake in front = hard braking with touring car! not much more.

Hope it helped

A one way is fast on an open track that doesn't require much braking just take some brakes out of the car when using one so you don't upset the car if you do brake hard. for smaller tight track the spool is the way to go.

Hi,

You'll be much better off getting ride of it and going back to the t-nut setup used in the TC3. Lots of TC5 owners replace this immediatly as it is a very weak point in the diff and will strip very easily.

Here's another option,

To be used with the Tamiya caged thrust bearing.

Not Specifically, It's Associateds generic diff screw, they've used it in many of their vehicles. It's MUCH better than the stock TC5 diff screw and nut.

Here's another link to it from Associateds site
