For John StAmant

You can't be that addicted to Tamiya! Just buy a "normal" Allen key head screw and that has a big enough head for you to put a slot in. Really.
You'd have to see the screw in question. I make no compromises. It is a special screw, trust me on this one.

Tamiya USA has most parts in stock including WE kits. You just need to find a shop in the US that deals with them and will order the stuff. Prices on the site are the retail price and a shop should receive a discount.

if its the same bumper as the Evo V then the T2 bumper will fit. Or you can make your own from the blank.

start with a rather small pinion like a 12 or 13 and run the spur it comes with.
Beat on it for a minute and see how hot it gets. If you do a lot of stop and go the small pinion will be best . try to keep it below 170.... 160 is recommended for optimum longevity and great performance. if speed is what you need ... go up a few teeth and let it rock.

John I think 12 and 13t pinion is too small for a stock 105t spur... it wont even touch the spur....the smallest i can get is 20t pinion and that is with the motor adjusted fully to the rear...

I guess for a 5.5t 6000kv motor (I m assuming EZrun) is around 8-8.5FDR which is 26-27t pinions with the stock 105t spur gear.

Trust me, I have those screws, they're nothing special, just money drains on people with more money than sense. Actually I think their tensile strength is less than a 8.8 "normal" M2 which is why I think they break so often (at our track it is a common occurence).

You can mod a Parma hard bumper for the TC5 and it will be as good as anything out there, it requires three addition holes in the back and enlargeing the body post ones partially to fit the large end of the body post, really simple to do.
