Has anyone tired a Protoform P-37 body yet on a TC6 I just mounted and painted one up. I have an LTRC as back up but would like to try the P-37.

I'm surprised you feel the need to buy additional parts to change the setup. The only parts I've changed are the shock springs to something a bit stiffer (the kit ones are okay if grip is very low). Even the team drivers only change the springs and fit a stiffer front roll-bar (which Demon have got in stock). What handling issues are you having, and what surface do you race on?

If you're struggling for spares because you've broken stuff, then AMain have got most stuff in stock, which will take a couple of weeks to the UK. Not ideal, but better than waiting a month:

Default HB DCJ shaft

Anyway, HB dcj shaft fit with no issues, only need hex
and pin from HB and 2x 5x10x3 bearing, maybe 5mm thin spacer
beetwen pin and hearing.

But DCJ is a little too short. I like 2mm spacers under a-arm mounts, and pin in bone is on the limit.

Also pin is a little bigger then AE/Y and need bigger hole in plastic to put it into diff/slipper spool.

Also I saw used DCJ shafts at front in cyclone, and ...they also don't last long.

Compared to price 33$ per 1 piece, it is not worth.

Maybe Litlemodz will be the best choice

Regards!

I think the kit steel driveshafts are the best choice. Additional cost = $0. If they're good enough for the team drivers who TQ and win national events, they're good enough for me!

If you're getting a lot of chatter, try going for a setup that gives the car more front end grip, then reduce the steering lock. I run at about 60% lock (with 100% being on the lock stops).

Default Heads Up

Just for everybody in the UK, CML and the Team Associated lads are having a workshop at Ardent Race Track, Derbyshire. All TC4/5/6 drivers welcome. Book early to avoid disappointment
Check out the CML website.
cmldistribution.co.uk

Should be an interesting day

Default How do you use Battery Straps on TC6

I'm buying this car in the coming week and wonder how you mount the velcro straps I saw in one post. Is there some kind of hook on the chassis that the strap goes through?

Yes, the hooks that hold the battery in also have tabs that are normally used for tape. Simply slip the velcro strap through. I recommend the Top from the Photon, works perfectly and doesn't go under the batery.
