Brian,

We will see, Nitro Truck Nats are in August so that is the focus but the TC5 will see a few races this summer.

looks great!
would the weight still be balanced with a brushless system? my understanding is that those weigh more...wouldn't that offset the balance?
any news of a release date?

Any change in motor or battery type will affect the balance. Different brands of electronics do the same. The TC5 has been developed with both brushed and brushless in mind. In fact many of the top AE driver use brushless exclusively (Drescher, Levanen).

Well Guys,


Looks like we put two TC5 in the A over at the DHI World Cup, Not to shabby. The car does have some great promise and we will all be satisfied when the car comes out.

Thank you dr_hfuhuhurr

I have some more news from the RC Zone

Final Results and we did GOOOD




Ronald Völker /Germany - HB Cyclone/LRP
Marc Rheinard /Germany - Tamiya/Checkpoint
Andy Moore /England - HB Cyclone/Team Orion
Juho Levanen /Finland - Associated/LRP (TC5)
Joel Myrberg /Sweden - Associated/LRP (TC5)
Simo Ahoniemi /Finland - Corally/GM
Paul Lemiuex /USA - Xray/Truespeed
Alexander Hagberg /Sweden - Xray/LRP
Jilles Groskamp /Holland - Xray/Trinity
Marc Fischer /Germany - Corally/GM



Now just think, AE only sent 3 drivers to this race and we put two in the A. In the US AE is out gunned by the other teams, so our results have been good & consistant but the Big W is still coming. So with that in mind guys the car does work and will get better with time. So put those ideas of the car being out dated aside and pick one up when they come out.

Well Boyz,

The next big race (in the US) for the TC5 will be the Snowbirds and I am sure the team will be up for that. Not sure if they run a rubber class at that race but I am sure of there was they would have a great set up from the DHI Race.


Anders Myrberg,

You are right the Team has been working well together and the results are starting to show. Not long now for that big W.
