A diff will work the same under braking but under power the spool will pull the car harder out of the turn. The diff can also slip the unloaded inside wheel. The only time a front diff works best is when racing foam tires on carpet.
Man I was just looking for info like this on the front end....thanks


I run rubber tire tc tc5r on a fairly tight asphalt track and have been using a spool to this point but want to learn more about the tools available.
When might a one way be used ??

thanks in advance

Default New Car Rick ?

When is there going to be a new TC5 ? It seems that the car is dated
I ended up using an exo chassis/top deck, Hot bodies double cvd's in the front with modified bone blades and castor blocks, Tamiya shocks, modifed inline motor mount. Not happy with the ball diff maybe they could get on the front foot and build a rear gear diff using some parts from the NTC3 diff
I changed to a different car and out of the box i was doing better lap times and its half the price if i work out what i have spent on the TC5 and all the upgrades/mods. I didnt sell the TC5 I WONT LET IT BEAT ME ! Next is to cange all the steering balls and rod ends to Top ones. Its still has slop in the steering links and the hubs/bearings. Is it a TT issue or an AE issue ? It seems they have been concentrating so hard on OFF ROAD that they no longer have a comp Nitro car and their elec car is sliding.
Does R Howart have the answer ? Wisppers say there is a new car comming but i have that sinking feeling its just going to be an updated car.

I would only consider a one way when the car is not going very fast (slower motor classes) and you will not require much braking. A one way is useless in modified.

A spool car is as fast as a one-way car so I would not even play with it.

There could be some new parts at the Worlds start in two weeks.

The car is very good considering its age. Guys with stock cars still do pretty well. There is some slop in the ball cups that can be removed. But I agree that the design is old and that it needs updating or an entirely new car.

I can vouch for that, I managed to get mine placing 1st and 2nd in the two seasons of club racing I've done at two different tracks, only being beaten by a Xray T3 which I couldn't catch for outright speed and punch but I think he was dangerously close to cooking motors. His Xray and my TC5 running Tekin RS with Duo2 17.5

My TC5 works pretty good with only the Exotek chassis on it. I don't getto run too often and with brushless changing all the time it is hard to get the gearing and all the other settings right if you just don't run much. All in all how well I do or don't do is really not the cars fault but more my lack of time running it.

This weekend I raced for the first time in 3 months and the car worked really well. Just needed more practice and time to get the speedo setup well for the track but the car itself worked excellent. A different car wouldn't have really changed anything. Just needed to run some better lines and closer to the pipes and I could of gained alot of extra time but for how much I race my car worked excellent.

Any line on anyone who produces the inline motor mount? I am also looking for a decent picture of one to show a local guy with mad milling skills....

Default inline mount

If you have a mate that is good on a mill just shave half of the motor mount and half of the rear bulkheads, dill the new motor mount holes and counter sink ! Flip the diffs. It should take your mate about 30 min to do, We had 5 sets done in 1 1/2 hours.

well I finally got my tc5 up and running, after a short stint with some electrical problems.

just curious now that most of you guys been running outdoors on asphalt,

the car is a tc5x(excotek chassis. and i'm runnning in the 17.5. the set up is pretty decent. just looking for more entry turning and find the car is rolling way to much. so a decent set up that I can work from would be great. i tried one and it was way to soft for my driving.

Oh the track is a small to medium size and is sugar prep,

Oh and were can i find those inline bulk heads, i tried email the guy from UK but no reply yet.

oh and thanks
