I loved my TC5 and am still excited to get the TC6 on the track.
In PL there is no option for tc6

I post pics to my USA dealer/friend


Whatever, it is still OK chassis for me. I learn how works tc5 and I will use
it for tc6

Default Finished build

Had same problem as M.Abramowicz with the unthreaded bulkhead, but just tapped it and the rest of the build went smoothly.

Wow, the quality seems pretty top notch from what I've seen here... For TC kits to cost what they do this type of shit is absurd. Sounds like Associated needs to clean house in the quality control department and not focus so much on the quantity of kits they're getting out the door.

Let me add that over the years I have owned more Associated cars than I can count so it's not a brand flame, its fact based on observations.

I guess for a toy car that cost $400 before spending several hundred more dollars for it to become operational I may have some ridiculous expectations, like having all the hardware to put the thing together and things fitting together properly.

The screws don't bother me.. Some Tamiya, Schumacher kits were the same. I actually like them that way.. If you run asphalt it'll scrape the screws first instead of the chassis. It does not affect performance or adjustability either.

I had a Tamiya kit with the wrong bulkheads in the box.. A Xray T3 11 with burred screws and one without any threads.

I believe less than a handful have reported issues... My 2 kits were flawless.

No one is perfect. But for the performance and price it can't be beat.

Default wow

I have one kit left in stock. I am wondering with all these problems if i shouldn't just send it back. I don't race TC so i wouldn't have built it or even known about these problems without this forum.


HMMMM

This is a good question. I think you have a 50/50 chance if your kit has any problems. I got my kit in middle november and it was perfect, no issues.

Perfect kit here..

As for the VCS3 shocks- they're SLIGHTLY easier to build (not that the old ones were hard..), but they didn't feel any smoother than my TC5 shocks, so I don't really consider them to be THAT big of an improvement. Associated shocks have always been easy to build and felt smooth for me, so my opinion probably won't be worth $.02..

That being said, my only real gripe about the shocks is the pistons. They didn't come on the molded tree like they used to. They were already separated, and I had to clean up the flashing on every one of them. With the older pistons, you could usually pull downward on the pistons to snap them off the tree and about 90% of the time there was no flashing (the instructions even demonstrated the proper method for doing this). It was also nice to keep the unused pistons on the tree so that you could grab the size you needed as fit, rather than dig through a pile of individual pistons to find the correct numbers. Petty gripe, but still an annoyance. Just a note to AE- don't try to fix what never was broken.
