Hey all, I just bought the TC6 yesterday! I'm upgrading from the Tamiya TA05 and I have a question regarding the Front Slipper Spool. I'm used to running a regular diff like the rear set up or a front one-way in the TA05. The directions for the TC6 slipper says to tighten thrust screw fully. Man, that is pretty tight on the diff, should I loosen it at al? It is almost feeling as if it is direct drive diff. Also, as a alternative can I run the front diff like the rear diff build? Let me know what you guys think. What"s been the best set up for you and driving conditions thus far. Thanks!

If you are looking to free up your ball studs, this is what I did. I put the ball stud in my dremel and polished the ends with 600 grit sandpaper. Then I snapped them into the plastic end. With my dremel set on the lowest speed I spun the ball stud in the plastic end until it rotated freely. Worked well. I did manage to melt one end, so it would be good to have spares. You could use a drill instead of a dremel, that would keep the speed and heat down.

Hope it works for you....really free'd my car up.

The slipper spool is meant to act like a spool. It is suppose to be tightened down. The pads are there to give a little slip when you tap stuff. Helps save the outdrives and dogbones when you do.

Thanks phattyphatty4x2 and m abramowiaz
I have just assembled the tc6 its very stiff and the front belt
does seem quite tight to the top deck.
But really pleased.
Just out of interest did anyone else find the tc6 very tight at end of build.

The belts will free up with use. Just make sure you haven't set the cams too tight and that left and right are set the same.

has anyone notice the plastic ball cups from the shock splitting? especially the front ones, better check on yours. I replaced mine with Tamiya or I guess any other would work but Tamiya is the only spare i had ATM.

Does the TC6 use the same shock springs as the tc3 or 4?
Thanx....
