The front and rear diffs have the slipper - I think I'm losing power but they're both tight - WTF?

Why are you running a rear slipper?

You should be running a normal diff in the rear. I don't remember see 2 slipper diffs in my instructions.

Questions?? spool assembly.

Just received my first spool kit- I assume I need to provide the thrust balls from a regular diff to assemble it?

Anyone know of any options of getting a geared diff in the TC5 like they are doing with the 416x and T3?

Not sure about the spool kit but the TC5R instructions at the slipper spool assembly step do not list using the diff thrust balls. You have to use the 2 diff thrust washers but without the diff balls.

Everyone that I race with puts in the thrust balls when building a spool. The theory is that the thrusts help prevent the nut from loosing up when the spool slips. There have been several examples of people who couldn't get their spools to stay tight, they put in thrust balls and never had any more problems. I've also had problems with the aluminum nut stripping. I put a B4 nut in all is well.

I've tried with and without and haven't had any slippage with either method. I do use a big drop of blue loctite on the bolt tho.
To stop stripping the nut/bolt I compressed the diff spring in a C clamp overnight and haven't stripped any hardware since.

I was wondering if any team drivers knew whether the new TC6 bulkheads were remotely close to production and/or whether they'd be a direct fit for the TC5.

I'm assuming that they'll be very similar to the current "UK" bulkheads being used on the TC5, but I'm assuming that a "mass-produced" part would cost less and be less hassle to obtain than the UK ones even if we didn't include the cost of labor.

I managed to bend my stock motor mount the last time I was out there. Since I need to replace something anyway, I'm trying to decide if I want to try and mod a stock motor mount/bulk head like someone did earlier in this thread, buy new bulkheads, or just buy another stock motor mount and run with it, as-is.
