Anyone else catch that it recommends silicon diff fluid as a "helpful item" in that press release? Typo or foreshadowing?

pretty sweet xray clone.

too bad the arms mount on the bulkheads that are gonna bend, be hard to troubleshoot, and have to replace a whole bulkhead, reminds me of the issues guys had with the FK05 xray


sweet car though and with the prices and parts availability a top choice!

love the motor mount.

looks like it has three screw mounts, so maybe you dont need to replace your spur gears after all.

Ouch...anyone got a clue what the "street price" would be on that? Seems like the PDF press release isn't working anymore so I can't see where $649.99 is posted.

MSRP on the TC5r is $629.99 USD. Most places have it for $359.99 USD

I've seen the TC6 at $389.99 USD pre-order price on one site. Another one had it for a lot more.

$389.99 USD seems like a pretty realistic street price for the TC6.
