Bingo
thats right on the money ,I thought the nut went in further but didnt want to mash the tube .

You guys got it right! I have built a couple kits now. Carefully place the nut in the plastic holder(31166) by hand, then use a flat head screw driver to push it flush with the top of the holder. Next, lay the holder flat on the work place. Use a 3 to 3.5mm allen driver to slowly push the nut into the holder. Push it strait down until it stops. It may take a little more pressure to push it down than expected. It fits tight. This is good because the holder will hold up over time, since it is under significant pressure when you hit something, as well as the fact that the slipper-spool needs to be tightened a few times while the pads break in. also. It is still good to check it once in a while.

The new outdrives and ball diff are awesome!

I hope this helps!

yes they do, just make sure you get them the right way around otherwise they will rub on the belt and come too close to the top deck, i would tell you which way is the right way but i don't have the car infront of me and its not that hard to sort out yourself. lol

Just finished my TC6 build. Easiest fix for the diff nut- just splurge and spend $2-3 for a stealth tranny diff screw and t-nut. (part #6575)

Honestly, I think AE needs to ditch the 2-piece design and go back to the tried and true diff nut from the stealth tranny.

Other than swapping out the diff nuts, the only issue I had was with the c-clip on the steering bellcrank. Why not use the same size e-clip as the layshaft in this area? My first try snapping on the small c-clip sent it into orbit, never to be seen again. I know it was my fault, but I really wish they would have used an e-clip here, as I have a ton of various size e-clips sitting around. For now I modified a lock washer with my dremel to make a make-shift c-clip until I can order a replacement.

Can't wait to get this thing on the track this weekend.

I can see this method working for a while, but eventually, due to the "ears" on the 6575 being smaller than a AE blade, I can see the ears eventually breaking due to backlash against a plastic material. The "locknut holder" design is sound IMO.

Default still running bessie my tc4

i have saw the tc5 heard about the tc6. driven the tc5 quiet a bit. then ill put my tc4 which is modded as much as can be even with fabricated after market made up parts lol. and i swear my tc4 drives and runs better than the tc5 it handles better,im running foam tires 35ish shore 26mm front 30mm rear. this thing is crazy at the track it seems to almost go by its self. i will gi to the play spot and run 4 cell lipo in it and ive had it to 89 mph. just geared 21 pinion. 72 spur. i race with 2s lipo and i cant even run the tc5. my friend is trying to sale me his tc5 at a real good price. i cant make myself buy it because my tc4 is just to sweet. it looks like a new car.how can i make myself move to another car. im racing against the newest stuff out there. im still finishing top 5 almost every time.

in my opinion the mamba max pro 5700kv it has plenty of power on the top end and on the bottom end. works good on a big track. put a smaller gear and it runs good on short tight tracks. good all around combo
