There are different swaybar holders that come in the kit that have different slot sizes to hold the bar securely (but still allow it to move easily)

Check for the number of dots on the top of the swaybar holder. 1 dot is the smallest holder, 2 is a step larger, etc.

Hey Guys,
I was having issues with my carpet set up on the TC5R, so I decided to try the last race set up by Keven Hebert. The change was dramatically better and brought the car to the front. Very impressed with Keven's set up.

God Bless

If I'm not mistaken, the TC5 uses ASE hardware and all Tamiyas are metric. Also the Tamiya blue is a little lighter than the Associated blue. You can probably find a blue screw kit for the Factory Team edition.

TC5 has metric hardware. I got my blue screws from http://www.fastener-express.com
They're as close as you'll get to AE blue for metric screws.

Wow!

Never have this problem.

What you set at servo saver? Too tight?

Questions?? Steering vibration at full turn

Just a quick question. My TC5 steering vibrates like hell at full turn. I checked the CVD and its all straight, no binding and the wheels clear the suspension arm too. No vibration whatsoever if the front tires are straight though.

Has anybody experienced this?

TIA.

Reduce the steering using the EPA on your radio. The chatter is caused by the joints in the CVs being turned too far.

Have you already tried everything like reducing droop in the rear or adding it in front, or lighter oil, softer springs, laying down the shocks, more toe-in or steeper shorter camber links?
