These are in stock and have been shipping this month. If they are not in stock right now they should have them shortly.

Does anyone know of a way to tell the difference between the standard and hard suspension parts by looking at them? I have a ton of spares that came with the used TC5R that I bought and I can't tell which are hard and which are standard. I know with the old offroad stuff you could tell the difference by the color (carbon parts had a more silver-ish color to them while the standard parts were dark black)

I ordered and received one from amainhobbies.com last week. According to their site, they had a decent stock when I ordered.

It's kinda hard to tell but the Hard parts have more of a shinny look to them and the soft parts are more dull in appearance.

Default Question!!

alright guys. This might be a dumb question since I just got into touring cars.
My new built TC5R is having some vibration problem with the throttle and steering applied at the same time while on the work stand. With just the throttle applied (any amount) without turning the wheels, there was no vibration. But once I turn the front wheel past a certain angle, both front wheels start to vibrate really bad.
There is a video by another person that pretty much describs the problem I'm having if you search on Youtube "TC5 steering vibration problem".
Is this a problem? If yes, is there anyway to fix it? Thanks for all the help!!

That's chatter from the CVD's. It's normal. If you search this thread for "chatter" you'll see a lot of suggestions on reducing it.

I get a similar problem when I use certain wheels. First thing to try is to try it with no wheels. If it doesnt occur with the wheels off, shim the wheels out, if its still rattling, check the drive shafts. If its still bad reduce your steering lock. Still bad, a full front end rebuild is in order.

Hope something works.

Regards

Neal
