Default 4deg tc4

I have it on good authority by an Associated sponsored driver team, that the FT TC5 comes with 4 degree castor blocks as standard, which would make sense with it being the FT TC5, doh!

Thanks guys! That clears it up. I was going to get the Factory Team version(the no longer in production version) and the one piece spool, but that is not exactly what I needed.

Default TC5R Shocks

Maybe someone here can give me some advice. I have a TC5R. I was having a problem with one of the shocks, I don't know what the part is called, but it is the larger black piece that holds the black plastic washer and the "o" ring in. It would not lock into the bottom of the shock body, so when I ran it, it would get loose and allow the "o" ring to come loose and allow all the oil to leak out. I had an upgrade kit for the F/T TC4 shocks, part # 31123. The larger black piece has a different shape, but I tried it and it seems to be a tight enough fit to secure the "o" ring. My question is, are they interchangeable? Is the shock body the same? If they are should I change all 4. Or, should I get a rebuild kit with the current large black piece # 31120?

Yes they are the same shock body so the insides should work. Don't mix and match the insides though. If you have the VCS2 rebuild kit then use what is in the package. If you have the latest and greatest pieces from Associated then use everything in that package.

Warren,
A few people did. Contact AE about it. My TC5R only had an issue where the servo mount is. Other than that my car was good everywhere else.

I had a problem with the holes in my chassis ben drilled too close together for the servo.. so took a few mm off the servo mounts and now it's fine..

Weird thing is my friend who is running the shame chassis (itf) and same servo (S9551) has the servo mounted in the same way as me just his servo has a bigger gap between the bulkhead and the front of the servo... Weird cars...

Easy to drive and easy to setup though which as a plus.

Does anyone know of a new motor mount for the TC5, that gives a greater range on the motor movement and a bigger opening for the pinion? Just asking.. I did try a search but it craps out every time I run it.

Do you mean access to the pinion?
I completely agree with what a huge pain in the butt it is to get to the pinion and adjust the mesh.

It works, but you are really limited on the spur to pinion, because the adjustment holes are limited on the range of movement. I figured someone by now would have made something. also trying to get a 30 plus tooth pinion though the hole is not possible. With the FDR for 13.5 and 17.5 this is a big pain in the butt. When you are trying run the two classes with one car it is a bit of a problem.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but I couldn't find it. I was wondering if there are any advantages to running the slipper spool over the regular spool. Will the slipper part of it cut down on busted blades?
