We don't live in a world of infinite money. Count me among the people that's now fairly unhappy with the fit/finish of their TC5, but doesn't want to spend another couple hundred bucks to sell/switch their car. We're just trying best to make due with what we've got.

Pretending that the TC5 is perfect out of the box with regards to slop would just be a lie. At least it would be in my car's case as well. My Hot Bodies Cyclone D4 (off road buggy) has less steering slop than my TC5.

All that being said, as people have pointed out, the slop doesn't necessarily translate into poor lap times, so if your times are fine, just live it.

Hey Guys,
I must be doing something very wrong in putting my slipper spool together.
I went through four thrust bearing nuts. I would get the thrust bolt started and it would strip the nut. I tried with the thrust balls and without. The same result. Any help is very much appreciated.
God Bless

Just to make sure, are you pushing the diff nut all the way into the plastic housing? I believe I used a 2mm allen wrench to push the nut all the way down in there, you'll know when it bottoms out. When I did this, I had no problems with the nut stripping.

here the best thing to do with slipper spool for no problems down the road first use the thrust balls if u dont it will loosen up on u and that is no good and about the nut issue go to your lhs and order a t nut from a rc10 t3 off road stadium truck and u will not strip that one out
hope this helps

Thanks for the ideas
I did make very sure that the nut was all the way in the t-nut. In fact I flattened one tapping it to make sure.
Now, when you screw the slipper spool together how far does the t-nut come down the diff half? Does it come down tight like the regular diff build?
Mine would start catching the nut, then it would pop. I tried different thrust bolts, but all with the same results.
I will try the T3 part.
Thanks and God Bless
