For those guys that was asking what gearing is available I found out that Robinson Racing in now making 37,39,41 tooth aluminum pinion 48p to be used with 69t and 72t spur to get to 3.5 -3.8 FDR. currently I'm geared 37 pinion and 69 spur with novak GTB and 17.5 ss last time I temp my motor it was 145 degree after 5 min and 30 seconds of running in the track size of I'll say 50ft by 130-150ft parking lot. If there is anybody here interested in racing here in San diego the next race is January 25th then every other sunday practice starts at 8:30 to 9:00 AM race starts roughly 10:00 AM Club Racing. 10 bucks for the first entry 5 bucks for the next car. We have other classes like 1/10 stock, 19t 13.5, and modified. 1/18 class 18r stock and 18r modified, and slash class Yes slash...

I know SMC packs fit fine. I run the 4000mah myself in 10.5.

Use some CA. You will also have to do that with the gears that come with the kit. I understand your confusion because the oneway doesnt come with any instructions.

I need some help. I'm experiencing some torque steer on my TC5. On hard acceleration it quickly pulls to the left for the first couple feet and then straightens right out.

I am running a spool up front and diff in the rear.

I took it all apart and found a bad rear hub bearing, yet it still has the same problem with the new bearing. I even put in a new rear diff and still the same problem.

I do not think it is an issue with the front of the car as it has a spool and the bone blades are intact.

Anyone have any suggestions???

Thanks

Are you running the slipper pad spool or the original one piece spool that the gear bolts to? The slipper pad spool can come loose and cause similar issues.

A couple of things to check.
Shock lengths, all the same?
Tweak?
Same spacing of shims on the left and right side of the car?
Same bulkhead holes on the left and right side of the car?

Check for chassis tweak - remove the wheels and put the car on a flat surface, remove the top plate and then put one screw in at a time, the car shouldn't suddenly lift when you tighten one down.

Rick, bring the car to the track on Wed, we will figure it out, I bet it has something to do with Tweek from the chassis, as we kind of ruled out the other issues. You had to do some dremeling to get the chassis on the car... so...

Also bring all your spares including the old chassis
