Default TC5 Drift Setup

Hello everyone.

I just purchased a TC5R. Does anyone have a recommended setup for drifting. Ive searched all the forums and no luck. I'm surprised. Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Interested in this one too. A drift team has started at my lhs and I am using my factory team tc5. So far I was advised to go to a smaller pinion which seems impossible, softer springs, and major toe-in.

Not sure how well it will work on the TC5. That seems more like a true on-road race car than drifter.

That said, i have a FT TC3 and I have 2-3 degrees camber up front. 1-2 degrees in the rear. Fairly firm setup since Im drifting on carpet.

I took the TC5 out drifting on Sunday. It is a little rear heavy and hard to get into the turns. But once ya get it going, it works pretty good. And I found a TC3 chassis in a box that needs just a couple parts and I'll be setting that one up too.
