Good deal. Please keep us updated. It looks like they're already removing certain part numbers from their web page.

Hey guys I'm new to TC. Picked up a TC5R. Running an LRP 7.5 with an SXX on asphalt and need some help with tire choice. I've noticed there are different offsets, compounds, and what seems to be different sizes. Please help.

Ask around your track to find out what works well for your local conditions Onroad rubber tires are temperature rated now. Find out the track temp range for a days racing and buy pre-mounted rubber slicks to suit. Right now I'm liking the Sweep EXP line of pre-mounted tires with Sweep X3 traction compound as they're reasonably priced and easy enough to find online. On a race day I'll start with EXP 40, then switch to EXP 36 and then EXP 30 as the track temp cools off as the sun sets. If you go with too hot a tire for your conditions you'll know it because you'll be fighting for traction. Too cold for the track and the tire wears too fast and overheats.

Why does the Associated website (rc10.com) have the TC5 as discontinued, but the TC4 is still available?

to my knowledge the TC4 only exists as an RTR. The Team and FT versions are discontinued.

Thanks for the tire help. Now, what gearing do you suggest for a 7.5?

Alright, I'm very confused and starting to get pretty annoyed here. I'm breaking those stupid plastic CVA bone blades, at least one a night. The weird part is that it's ALWAYS the one on the left rear that breaks. The drive cup was slightly dinged up, so I replaced it. The CVA bone itself looks fine, so what gives? Anyone have this problem before?

lets see

Does anyone know if the new TC6 plastic arm mounts (now 0-3 vs 1-3 in the TC5 set) are form/fit/function replacements for the TC5 part number?

yes, the 0 mounts fit, but there is no room for the droop screws to do anything

Will a new TC6 '0' mount fit in the TC5 'A' mount hole on the bulkhead?

yes it does

How about the new front bumper assembly, will it bolt directly up to the TC5?

no it doesnt, the new bulkheads are narrower buy a weeee bit
