Seems like most people have it on the servo. its not like the lap will be any faster if it is mounted in the front. Only time that would help is if you and someone were dead even.

How often do you guys replace your blades on drive shafts? I'm having problem with blades breaking and chewing up the aluminum spools and outdrives.

It will work on your car, there's no difference in the diff that comes with your car it's just composite instead of aluminum.

I would like to know why Red RC wasn't allowed to take photo's of the TC5's of Juho and Olly at the ETS race this past weekend.
Also how would Christer have gone if he was there as well?

What have Associated got up there sleeves.

Had a great time racing the TC5R this Sunday. The car worked great and was really hooked up on a med to low traction carpet.
All stock parts except for the PPD lipo set up.
Great CAR
