Or a bad driver, which I am. I dont mind a little chassis flex because you can make a good handleing car out of one thats a little less twitchy. Im not trying to win the worlds I just want to club race with the thing, have fun, and make sure it has pretty blue aluminum peices all the rest I could care less about.

Its the reason I run associated, I suck at setup. But even with a bad setup my TC5 is still manageable. I could never get that out of my schumacher. The Schumacher was great with foam tires, but it was just too picky with rubber tires. The TC5 was sooo much nicer to drive.

Questions?? TC6

In the RedR/C article, it states that the car is balanced down the centerline. Is that before or after all the electronics have been installed? And if after, wouldn't that depend on what elecs are put in? The pics show a chassis with everything in. Just wondering? Thanks

Just figured I would post the rest of the pictures here from the worlds so people didn't have to go searching for them.

So does that mean that AE will be coming out with their own line of chassis weights and will they be included in the kit?

If they follow the trend, the weights will be extra.

Default lipo movement

interesting to see the holes for the lipo holder/tray
looks like it be positioned forward or rear to assist with balancing.

My eye is on this car.........

They will only be available separately.

Correct, the battery can be mounted in one of two positions - forward or back.
