tried switching the belt to the other side of the car but now im too close to the servo arm and rub against that too on occasion so ill change it back.
would be nice if the belts on this car actually fit the pullies. might install a tensioner pully to keep the belt off my stuff.
Yes.... I had my front diff installed the wrong way around so the belt was running at a slight angle instead of in a straight line. I put the front diff in correctly so the belt ran straight and there was no more rubbing. Once the diff is installed correctly there will be no rubbing and no need for tensioners. The diff cams adjust the tension and even runnign in the lowest possible position I never had any rubbing.

I thought the dif position was reversible. my belt is running straight, but the belt doesnt fill the pully and can wander slightly. i have no idea why it hits when you steer though.

figured it out. i used the wrong size screw putting it back together when i changed the servo fast at the track and it was wobbling under steering.

tc5 is alive and well and should eat a few xrays this weekend =)

Still have this problem. When you steer the drivebelt sounds like its flapping against something. Steering post isnt moving though the front axels are a litle wobbly.
Maybe loosten the belt tension? Also
Is there an adjustment for the front axel bearings or are they just getting nfg when they start to squeek and wobble?

In general, if you have ANYthing squeaking on your ride... it's time for something to be fixed or replaced. Axle bearings take a beating on the TC5.. stock up on them and check/change them regularly.

will i need to replace the cva/dogbone assembly or just pull it all out and change the bearings/crush tube? also does the servo saver come as a set or do i need to get all the parts seperatelly? once i figure this and the belt rubbing issue, car should be set for the season.

Check here : http://abram.eu.org/gear_tc6.php
I have used M.Abramowicz's chart as a start point for gear choice.

You can get all parts individually, well most of them, before buying new parts, take both sides aparts, wash everything well with grease cleaner, check your CVA assembly for wear, pin etc, if everything is fine regrease with black grease from thrust race.

If your bearings sounds gritty, you can lift off one or both of the rubber seals by putting a very sharp point on the inner part and the seals and lift them off, making sure not to deform them in the process.

Again wash the inside of bearings and seals, refit one of the seal, add oil (turbine) in bearing, rotate it until nice and smooth then refit the second seal just be pressing it in place gently.


Belt should not rub either way you put it, personally I changed the belts side. my long one is now on the outside (right) from the spur gear so it passes on right of servo saver (looking at car from above) and small one is inside the spur gear assembly, but when you do this you have to swap the differential/spool assembly and fit them the opposite of manual.

hope this helps

Default ESC

JUst wanted to know what ESC alot of you are running. I plan getting two, one for VTA class 25.5 motor and the GT class 17.5 motor.
This is my first touring car, its awesome.... the carbon fiber and aluminum look great. Are there any hop-ups that MUST be done to the TC5R?
Im sure this has been talked about before but I thought I would give this thread some action. Thanks!
