Default tc5 driveline

hello all,

ive just purchased a associated tc5. (very new to this) This thing is stupid fast. question is how do you equilize the pull between the front and rearend.. when you drive it, it spins out and is almost uncontrollable. the front spins but doesnt seem to be pulling like you would think. It also pushes on the steering when at speed. any advise would be greatly appreciated.

If it has a slipper spool in the front, make sure it's tight.

To me it seems the problem lies in your differentials. One may be too loose or too tight, or even broken. Take them apart to ensure they are built correctly and nothing is worn out. A diff rebuild kit may help. But if its spinning under power, the front is likely slipping.

The front should be a spool, so it sounds like you should loosen up the rear ball dif a little.
