If you look at the chassis, there isn't much space to fit a double steering post set up, this is something we are discussing on another thread at present (Reflex)

The single bell crank is what the TC6 engineer feels is best. I don't know if one works better than the other because I have never had a car that gives both options (for back to back testing) but the single system works pretty well on the TC6.

This is just what I wanted to hear! I'm really satisfied with the car. I tried the front gear diff with putty like you suggested and boy I like it very much. If you tell me it works for you then it should work for me too.

Thanks for your respond!

The Tc5 Springs are the same as the Tc6 springs, which have actually been the same since the TC3 I think.

The pistons you mention have 2 1mm holes and a 1.5mm hole, they do not come with the kit but can be bought from Reflex Racing (http://www.reflexracing.net/proddetail.asp?prod=RSD006).

Black ballstuds have a short 'neck' whereas the silver ones have a slightly longer 'neck' under the ball, I think it is 0.75mm longer, which basically is like having a 0.75mm shim underneath a black ballstud.

Regards

Neal

You can get the silver 'long" ballstuds from amain and probably others. I know amain has them listed under tc5's. I would recommend getting the 10mm thread length if you are planning on using them for the front outer ball. I had the 8mm loosen using a 2mm ballstud washer and then it would not tighten again because the few threads it was using became stripped.

AE sells blank shock pistons so that you can drill them to your specifications such as 1,1,1.5.

These are an AE part so any hobby shop that sells AE should have them or can get them/

What method is everyone using to build zero rebound shocks? Drilling the cap and leaving the foams out?
