Great stuff from 3racing once again... put this in your car and you will experience the real joy of turning.... I bought this for my tf 5 and all i have to say is that my car turns really smoother that with the stock ones.... pls 3racing make more blue parts for our tf 5 cars.... thank you for great product in really cheapest prices ever....
I must admit that I didn't know what to expect when I decided to purchase this steering system. I have had some experience with 3Racing products and with the majority of upgrades on my TF-5 being from that particular company, I wondered if this upgrade would be beneficial? The stock version from the ready-to-run has some binding issues at times (on only a handful of occasions to be honest) but I still didn't feel that they gave me the steering input I seeked. With my upgraded servo (Spektrum) the stock setup didn't feel as responsive as I wished, no matter how many adjustments I had made. Then the upgrade 3Racing steering came in the mail and I quickly went to see how this unit would affect the car.
The first thing I must point out is the installation is a bit tricky, more so if you don't have much experience in upgrading parts. I am fortunate to have a bit of practice and history in changing parts and after a few screw removals and removal of the upper chassis deck, I replaced the stock part with the new system. The 3Racing steering system is nice looking, being shiny blue and silver aluminium, as you see in the picture. This colour (or color if American) scheme they have used (blue) for the TF5 does look good, adding bling to the ready set.
Now to the important things: The new system has been great, completely bind free due to bearings replacing the stock bushings, nice hex screws for adjustments instead of normal screws, and ultra...I mean ULTRA smooth! It really is bind free and driving response is superior, allowing me...an average driver...to take turns with confidence on wide open throttle with ease. I have to admit that out of all the upgrades I have purchased to improve the ready set, this is by far the most important. The extra smoothness gives less strain to the servo, adding life and allowing it to run true.
If there are upgrades you wish to purchase for the ready set to make it competitive, I highly recommend this product. Ther..
