A change that I have found to work really well in creating more rear traction for situations like this is to use the inner hole on the rear A arm. It always has immedialty tamed the rear from sliding. It will signifigantly change the ride height, so don't forget to go back over and reset that.

I have fitted the yOKE bd FRONT BELT, THIS HELPS ALOT.

especially as it has the same pulleys 40/20.

Still havent found a good replacement for the rear yet but still testing

new belt I hear from a mr CD at UK nats, will be better, as first batch of tc5 do have a few small issues that needed tweaking :P

Thanks Brent.


Yeti - It's really a shame that I'm not racing the IIC.... I'd own you!

Yaahooo !!! I made some slight changes and the car is getting more and more stable. I posted earlier that last weekend the rear started to get loose in the heat of the day (ambient temp 100 F). this week I went to 60wt/#3 in the front... stayed with the 30Wt/#3 in the rear and played with the rear inner camber link. I had gone to the top last week... I tried the lowest hole for the first round... the car was fast but the rear still wanted to come around in some of the slower turns... mid turn... For the second heat I went back to the top (this differs from last weeks setup as I changed the shock oil in the front)... it was much better... but still a little loose... For the main I changed the rear droop from 5 to 4. Much better.... much better.... This car is fun.

Now the problem I have is selling the two FT TC4's that I have... people want the TC5...
