Default Custom Tc5

Though I'd Share what I did to my tc5. I think it looks cool. I took my Blue Bulked s and bead blasted them and buffed them out a little. The result was a white parts with blue accents. The first picture is before. The second one is after. The last three are with the car put together. What do you think? Ya or nah?

Pretty cool. If it had the machined white nylon arms, it would look like the original prototype TC5 the team guys were testing.

Cool. I did the same thing to my TC5 and then polished the bulkheads...I prefer the polished aluminum look.

My car was horrible. In the main,Which i was "wheeling" it like hell...... My epa on my radio was 14% to the right , and 80% to the left. The reasoning for the epa difference was because i couldn't figure out the reason it would spin out to the right only. So i adjusted the epa to only turn enough where it would turn but not spin out. It worked temporarily. 11.1 with a messed up car.

The qualifier I watched looked pretty good. If you need any chassis help feel free to ask. Keep at it and you will get faster and faster .
