Thanks
I have the cap for my SP on the bottom of the topdeck

If you use a sensorless speedo and sensorless motor you should be fine. If the company has good software it will very smooth.

If you running a 13.5 sensored with a sensorless speedo it will hesistate off the line on initial hit of the throttle and cog.

This TC5 is starting frutrate me a lot and maybe someone out there can help me out. How can this car have a decent run during practice and the first qualifier and then turns crappy in the second, third, and final round? Now for the second, third, and the final round I just change the tires due to the track temp getting hotter. The cars starts hooking around and this is where all the settings are checked such as Tweek, camber, Diff, etc. prior to the run. I see other TCs not making any changes, except for tires, and just checking there settings and are fine for the whole day. So what gives with this car???

to keep your final drive between 4.5 and 5.0 you would need a 34 to 37 tooth pinion but if your running a 7.5 turn motor i would say in the range of a 23 tooth to keep the temp down. anyone please feel free to correct me if i am off on that as gearing is not my best issue.

Did this happen on more than one set of tires? Just curious because maybe there is something funny with that set. I am going to assume it is the same insert and wheel just a different compound correct?

What type of temperature variation are we wtalking about here? I run my car on sorex 32s in all weather condition here in the uk and have never needed to change from a warmer/cooler tyre.

Make sure you were able to seat the black plastic piece all of the way down into the shock body. When you insert the shock shaft make sure that you do not tear the o-ring. With only one o-ring in there now any tear will cause it to leak.

Yeah, and the black washer. I started test fitting the black washers in the bodies before I put all the parts together for final incertion. I had a couple I didn't clean the burrs off of and wouldn't seat all the way...

Been running this chassis for a while now.

Most recently i raced at a new club, I had never been there. Arrived late, had to put motor in etc after skimming it and rushed to make the 2nd qualifier. Despite a lack of grip (everyone was running additive and softer tyres) I still came second out of five on a new track against the regulars.

The car just maintains feeling dialed in and its very easy to set up Strong too! I got hit and the car flew about 6 feet up, landed on its roof, rolled over and kept going. Probably tweaked the chassis, but it was not handling any different after so I may have been lucky.
