Just got this chassis for my foam car. It works absolutely excellent. Even though it's quit a bit thinner, it's still quite stiff and it balances the weight left to right perfectly. I highly recommend it.

Thats the most boring race i've ever watched and I think i'd go and wrap my car round the commentators head afterwards for being so terribly annoying..

Thanks Kev, wanted to be sure of that. Great to hear the LiPo plate is still working well for you. You leave zero doubt what the TC5 is capable of.

Great job on the win and podium Keven and Josh!
Interesting front bulkhead and servo mod. I imagine this provided more linear servo input and a touch more chassis flex?
Again, well done!

Was this for weight distribution? How was the kit servo saver modified to connect to the servo with it sitting that way?

It apparently smoothes out the steering and makes it have a better feeling. I think there is a hole drilled in the middle of the akerman arm behind the 2 back steering link holes

yes a hole is drilled behind the ackerman position. It is just a feeling preference. It does smooth the steering out and makes the car more consistent but it is not something that will improve lap time or anything. Only problem is that you have no servo saver doing it that way but I havent had any problem with my servos and even when I run the std steering I lock the servo saver.

Rick Hohwart ran the std steering at the iic and was very fast all week end.
