Just got a bearing kit in and can confirm that. They are 6x10x3mm. Losi makes a bearing that will interchange in a pinch also...just blew one and used Losi bearing to replace.

That is such a relief. I have been looking everywhere for 6x10x4 and I can find VERY few of them and they are VERY expensive.
6x10x3 on the other hand are everywhere!
Thanks guys.

Actually, my manual says 6x10x4

Ive done a bit of a search across various boards looking for something but not had a ton of luck - Running in a newly assembled car - what can be said about that? I made sure to keep the diffs real loose on the first run, and have been gradually tighening them since. I still dont really know how tight is appropriate.
What else should i know, or is that basically it?

Doh! I knew what I meant, I wrote it backwards. The manual states 6x10x4mm bearings, they are actually 6x10x3mm. Sorry guys, but you all confirmed it, the manual is wrong. I already asked this question directly from AE support on their website; my post and AE's response is out there. AE confirmed it to be a misprint.

Are you racing carpet foam? If so, I run 1/4 loose in the rear, 1/8 turn loose in the front. The standard setting is 1/4 loose front & rear, but I want more drive coming out of the corner, which a tighter front diff will do.

Also make sure the arm mounts are not backwards?
Nope, nothing is backwards and the rear hubs are both the same, at least with the 0 degree ones. Not sure if it changes once you start using optional 1 or 2 degrees though.

As for bending them, nope. I was just setting it up on my bench at home when I noticed the ridiculous difference in toe! I hadn't even got the car on the track yet.

Anyhow, that all being said, I drove it last night with the wonkey shim setup and it's fine. I ordered some parts for it to see if the new ones are any better but I'll drive it as is until I break it.

Another note, this thing has insane steering! I used to run my dual rate at 75 with my RDX and I had to change the setting down to 35 for the TC5! I also had to reduce my rear droop quite a bit. I'm probably only running about 1mm of droop, although I am going to increase it slightly now that I'm a little more used to it. And this is all with a mostly stock setup and RUBBER tires! Kit chassis, kit springs, no sways, and a one-way. I love it!!!

I'd have to say your servo horn is too long. I went thru the same thing until I was able to "level" out the steering turnbuckle. If your running a Futaba servo then Dubro makes a horn kit that has one just the right length. With a one way and the correct length, I'm at 78% on my dual rate after setting my EPA (set with dual at 100%) just before steering hits the stops.

same here. I thought that mine would be here today so hopefully it comes tomorrow or else I will have to put the car back together with the original equipment. I have the top spool as a back up though. Good thing I'm really good friends with the guy running TOP USA
