Hi Josh,

Thank you for posting the setup, I will give it a try. How does it compare to your previous setup, with the higher roll centers?

Best,
Peter

I need some advice! I recently purchased a tc5f, and I'm in the process of putting it together. I will be running a mm/cc 5700kv with a 2cell 30c 6500 lipo. I do not plan to race indoor on carpet, mainly outdoor street/parking lot usage.

what is the "best" spur/pinion combo? any suggestions for some wheels and tires? Also, does anyone have any other suggestions for various upgrades outside of the stock parts? any other tips for a new tc5 owner?

I've owned a dozen other rc cars, but feel like the tc5 is a bit over my head, haha. I appreciate the help!

I noticed that the inside of my front wheels are rubbing on the shock ball end when the wheels are turned. Using Vintage Trans am wheels, ball stud is in outside hole. What effect will happen if I move ball stud to inner hole? Any other sugestions?

Moving the bottom of the shock inward will soften the suspension. You can offset this by moving the top of the shock out one hole also. But this may not give you the same feel in the suspension.

Realistically, for playing in the street or parking lots use whatever you've got. "Setups" are for folks who are racing competitively and are seeking advantage to go that tenth or two faster. Out in the parking lot it's just about whatever is fun...if you don't have a clock or a couple guys running in the same tenth or two to measure yourself against it really doesn't matter.

Just build it and go have fun. Keep track of the motor temp so you don't overheat, but don't obsess about exactly this droop, that shock setting or the exact killer fdr.

The new setup seems to have a better balance. The front and rear of the car roll over at the same time when your in a turn. With the old setup it seemed like the rear of the car would stay flat and the front would try to roll alot.

I have tried this setup at 3 tracks. Big, little, open, tight, high bite, low bite, oneway, spool. It seems to work well in all carpet conditions.

xtreme.......i'm not sure a spool is the way to go on a tight technical track.....unless braking is needed.
