What is the cheapest, fastest metal gear servo to use with the TC5? JR Z590M? Racing on a budget. How about brushed ESC?

Hitec 645MG and Futaba S3305 are both solid servos for around $35.00, the DuraTrax IntelliSpeed and Associated AI Quantum Runner are good $40.00 ESC's for 18T and up motors.

Hi guys. Maybe you can help me. I set up my TC5 to the new stock rubber setup. Love the way it feels and handles. Very neutral and easy to drive fast. BUT, the inside of my tires, all 4, are wearing like sorax's do. You know how you get the line that cuts threw the tire? These are take off tires. I started with the book setting of 1.5 or 2 degs on camber. I noticed the wear and knocked it back to 1 deg all around. It was still wearing on the inside so now Im at 0 degs all around. I have a new set of tires to try but wanted to wait and see if maybe somthing can be done?

I used a china marker and put a line on all the tires. Took a lap and checked to see if they are wearing evenly and they are at 0 degs. They seem to be the same.

I have the 2A lower blocks in. Think maybe the 3A blocks would be better?

Here is a pic. Kinda hard to see though.

I would say the line is usually caused by the insert in the tire. Thin inserts let the tire move more and will cause the wear pattern you are describing.

These are take off pre mounts. I know thats why the sorax tires do it, you can feel how baggy the tire is over the insert. But the take offs are a lot tighter.

Thanks

Sean, but why would it happen just on the inside?

I have never seen wear like that on the outside!

No expert here, but I agree. After seeing that on many, many tires that I'd glued together myself. Centrifugal force <and voodoo> causing the insert to ride up.

I hate it when my inserts ride up!

So just set the camber to 1deg and see how it feels? Forget about the tire eating itself?

I was thinking that, cause of the roll center being low it was tipping the inside tire over enough to dig into the inside edge. Maybe even a little wheel spin was helping it?

Yes just set the camber to the best setting then rotate the tires to extend their life. The ridges form on the fronts more quickly than the rears. I think as the tire rolls over and the side wall is stiffer it wears in that corner joint. If you have a thicker insert in the tire the tread portion of the tire can't move as much and it should wear as much better.
