TC5 FT For Sale

Thinning the fleet a little. I got this and had it ready to run but never ran a pack in it. This is a brand new car.

Awesome! Just what I wanted to know. I'll be getting it as soon as my Paypal is finalised.

Thumbs up TC5r at ETS Warsaw

Hi!

At ETS Warsaw race I only found 3x chassis for pro stock racing

Krens Robert (Rob_K) got 23 place after finals,
Ambrasas Mindaugas 41 and me 84 for 98 drivers

For me that was big because Mindaugas won his final E on my old tc5r chassis.

Now, I want thank you for Rob_K for his help to Mindu and me, without it,
probably we can't do it better

When grip grow too much our cars was doing traction rollout.
Rob_K said what to do :-) and from Q3 they was much better

Anyway, there is some pics from my camera:
http://abram.eu.org/files/ETS_Warsaw_2010/

There is http://www.youtube.com/user/lokaniukas (2 movies from
big final of Mindaugas, (1, 2 after big fight and last win after strong fight
with driver who WON last 2009 Warsaw ETS at pro/stock))

There is pics with Rob_K, Mindu, Scotty and me with AE banner and
some pics with new mod from Ukraine drivers

There was team from UA, they drive in modified class
Just search for UA on site:
http://www.myrcm.ch/de/ets/05032010_...cipants_7.html

TC5 drivers: Brazhko Andrey was 43, Brazhko Eugene 30, Petyak Andrey 38.

I don't saw they laps but they are happy for this big race

Regards!
m.

ps: Thanks to Rick Hohwart, he show to me what to do with chassis
ps1: now I put my tc5r to box and wait some months, my tweens (boys) are ready to come to real world it could happen right now

heh.

Looks nice but if they are OK? I must check them again, because 1st
was not nice they twist a little chassis

However if quality will be OK, they are will be better then UK option.

For me, UK should have option to change spur without destroy all car

m,

Either grab some balance buttons (I just borrow from others at the track) or get 4 small digital scales if you also want to balance front/rear.

I have a similer item on my car (Not the same company) and its well with the money. I thought the stock spur adapter wasn't well made. AE should have thrown in an alloy one from the start imo

If you want to spend the money then go for it. I've never had a problem with the stock spur gear hub.

The factory team AE drivers use the high-tech method. We slip body clips through the holes in the shock tower (that is what the holes are for) and hang the car while holding the clips. We add weight until it looks equal left to right.

I agree. The stock hub works fine.

But what would be good is a machined one-piece hub and shaft. if you can repalce the steel shaft with aluminum, you going to reduce weight enough to notice. However, the alloy shaft/hub that I have tried breaks.

Hi Rick,

Does reducing the weight of the layshaft that goes through the pulleys and spur gear hub make that much difference?, i know it will be lighter, but will it be faster?. The reason i ask is, i posed a similar question a few months back about changing the steel cvd's to aluminum or titanium versions to reduce rotational mass, and many said it didnt make a difference, as the mass is close to the axis of rotation, nothing is swinging

Default TC5 modz from Ukraine (East Europe)

Hi!

Now I have some time and I made some pics

The engineer made awesome CNC work

I got from UA driver (Żenia) rear engine bulkhead and two sets of
bearing cap (almost same like Christer Andersson).

On pics at rear is front tower but it is only for reference. I think with new
bearing cap, probably holes in body will not fit maybe 2-3mm rear tower
is moved to front ... see pics.


Email to the engineer is: [email protected] and rctech login: RIP

:-)

Don't ask me about price :P

Default 2nd pics of UA modz

Hi again!

For this mod I need shorter pinion, like 9mm, on pics you can see difference.



Enjoy!
