Is there any easy way to know if the arms are hard or medium? I have started marking any new ones I have put on the car but I also bought a secondhand car and I am convinced that it came with hard arms and want to make sure before using them.

Hey guys, I was wondering, would anyone happen to know what the weight difference would be between the tc4 and the tc5 ? i know the tc5 has the woven carbon fibre chasis, but i just thought if someone could confirm it that would be cool.

Thanks

Got myself a tc5r in a trade. I have a rs pro coming and have a novak 10.5. We run indoor carpet on a small technical track, straight stretch might be 50ft at most. Can anyone recommend proper gearing and esc setup? I think i read somewhere that people are gearing for a 5.0 fdr, which sounds kinds a nutty.
Thanks

The hard plastic is a little lighter in color and a bit more "marble" like... Also if you tap 2 plastic pieces together and 2 hard pieces together you'll hear the difference...

The hard stuff is a higher pitch "tick" where the plastic is more of a "clack" and almost a dense "thud" to it...

I'm wanting to change to Tamiya Thrust bearings (same as in a 415/ ta05 etc) in my diffs (I hate "build yourself" thrust bearings) and the std Associated screw (from a T4 / B4 etc with the plastic nut) is too wide. What diff screw can I use with these? I know some people have used the HPI on the std (wouldn't you have slop inside the associated thrust bearing?) Will they fit the Tamiya Prebuilt Thrust bearings?

Hey I'm a new owner of a TC5 and was wondering if any other pre-drilled bodies for other brands like xray etc.. will fit onto the car without drilling additional holes.

Probably will not fit.

Where can one find the latest team setup sheets for carpet? I couldn't find them on the Associated web site.

Tonight AE got a bit of air time on Australian TV
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

The in-car footage was taken using my car and it got a nice view of the AE logo, the car at 2:31 is also the same car, different body.
