I had one broken, and I thought that it was from a known hard hit on the boards that split the outer plastic hub in half as well. Got the car home and found that the other three wheels all had the outer bearing broken(no issues with the plastic, though). Outer race on all 4 was broken clean in half. VERY strange. I had new wheels on, and at least one had not ever had any hits on the boards.

You might wanna look at and follow the advice of your own forum nickname.

I can't find the c clip that goes on the steering post of the bellcrank. Is it like a E clip? hmm...

Default SPEC-R bd5 axles in tc6

Hi!



+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


I use some cnc cut 10mm tool to put inside bearing more,
and now:
- outside is 5x10x3,
- inside is 5x10x4,
- hex is from yokomo: bd-011c (5mm) or nr graupner: YBD.011C,
- spec-r bd5 double joint axle

Need some work on c-hub to fit it, and I will squeeze tc6 diff, it is a little slop,
or put Y bd5 gear diff to front with 100k oil

Anyway, works, from slow rpms to high without big shaking

Also I wait very long time for ae factory to do own axle ...

Also I try BD5 steering blocks. They fit to c-hub, but arm is in wrong place,
to high ... Almost perfect but there is no place to put steering links

Does any one know what the best body shell is for the TC6 is. On my TC5 I tried the R9 and that was the worst shell I had ever used so I changed to the DNA 2 which I also put on the TC6. The P37-R looks quite good but does it handle well or is there a better shell out there?

thanks

I use the Speed 6 and it is extremely smooth through the turns... I've also heard that you may need to move the wing back a few millimeters from the middle of the mounts for increased rear handling though. I'll try it today at the track. =P

I use the Speed 6 myself. About the best balance I have found so far from a body.
