as i ran my tc5 at speedweekend 2012. stock chassis, ae lipo retainer.

I fiddled around with new holes ect to move it around to eliminate the use of weights, but went back to the stock battery holes. i raised it up off the chassis level with some 2mm shims though which might have helped with battery holddown tweak. didnt really need anything inboard to stop it moving this way.

lipo tray not in this pic, but battery in the same position.



i might bring this car back for speedweekend outdoor. but my team magic is so nice to drive in stock.. not sure about entering the tc5 in mod would probably swap them.

Try adding some toe out or changing the castor.

I needed more steering from TC5 recently and tried adjusting the endpoints, but found it didnt work. I settled with moving the front shocks more horizontal (outside hole on bottom, second hole on top) and this helped give much more steering.

Yes, they do.
But, they have 3 shock mounting positions, so I'd suggest changing both L and R at the same time.

I was think about getting the Exotek TC5X also. I'm running 21.5 in the USGT class. Exotek has it for $75.00 that is better than getting a new TC6.1. Is anyone trying this chassis?

a great upgrade, but you can get a tc6 roller for $200. id get that, then get the tek6 upgrade sometime later.

It will probably fit, but according to my chart you won't find a pinion large enough to reach it. I run a 70T spur on mine, gives a final ratio range of 2.98 to 4.67 for blinky/VTA classes.
