You're welcome, i'm glad it helped.

Asphalt..........I would say check the AE site for Juho's setup from the reedy race (I don't know if its posted yet) or the worlds setup from Juho or Rick.

I will be at some of the asphalt races in IL. this summer, we can get you hooked up then.

Hi Josh, I am interested to try the hillbilly camber mounts. When you say you raise the outer link all round by 2mm, do you mean the rear too? If so what is the final height of the rear outer camber link, I run mine at 2mm now, do I raise another 2 to 4mm? Or just 2mm?

Thanks

Neal

I've built up a TC5 for Mod Tourer and I realised how much the standard TC5 looks like from a TC5 with numerous after market parts.
My Mod car, LRP x12 5.5turn


My Stock car, SP 17.5, I haven't driven the car with that motor, as I've been using Duo2's for a few months now.

just curious now that most of you guys been running outdoors on asphalt,

the car is a tc5x(excotek chassis. and i'm runnning in the 17.5. the set up is pretty decent. just looking for more entry turning and find the car is rolling way to much. so a decent set up that I can work from would be great. i tried one and it was way to soft for my driving.

Oh the track is a small to medium size and is sugar prep,

Oh and were can i find those inline bulk heads, i tried email the guy from UK but no reply yet.

oh and thanks
I'll have to double check my setup sheet, but I'll upload my setup. I have plenty of steering so you should be able to see the difference in setups.

My setup has very good tyre life, this is my most worn tyre (right front) after 4 race meets (about 2 1/2 hours of track time)

What kind of battery are you running in your 17.5? I noticed you had to add some weight to balance it. Does the car feeel any better with the Exotec chassis ?

I use SMC CMax 5200mah 50c the weight were there just to get the car up to weight on very inaccurate scales.

For some reason I couldn't save the PDF file (This is what I get for buying the program )

just after some suggestions... recently picked up a tc5r and have wired it all up and test run it. its been on a setup board and has been balanced, however when im running straight, at higher speed, the car wanders all over the place.

servo and servo horn seem fine. both are brand new. on the table the servo centers perfectly each time and there is no wobble or flex to the horn. cleaned, rebuilt and even greased the servo saver. have also tightened the servo saver to see if that helps. should I run it flush, flush hand tight, or flush pliers tight ??

any clues appreciated. this random 'wandering' is killing what is otherwise a great handling car.

How much front and rear toe are you running? Any bit of toe out in the front can cause some wander and too little rear toe in may cause it as well...

1 - Your are going to have to solder on a battery connector at the least.. If your doing speed runs id suggest the Mamba Max Pro/9000kv motor combo

2- Get a 2S lipo, as big (capacity wise) as your budget will allow.

3- Id get an Onyx 230 charger, does a/c and d/c, only $85

4- Again, depends on your budget. Id get a futaba 9551, they are $85 I believe. For just blasting up and down the street, you could probably get away with something cheaper.
