Hello!
I saw that some Team drivers are turning steering knuckles on their TC6's, why?
Is this mod good or not?

With the 0B arm mounts the steering turnbuckles hit the arm mounts if you don't flip the knuckles. You also have loads of bump steer. So well worth flipping them if you run the arms in this position.

I haven’t run my tc6 yet but I’ve noticed the turnbuckles hitting the arm mounts on the bench.
If I flip the steering blocks is there any mods I need to do, or is it as simple as turning them upside down??

Just flip them. You have nothing to change. It works fine.
Just one thing occurs: now the turnbuckles (meant was steering block) can touch the wishbone where it got the form for the anti roll bar mount (maybe just if you use the 6° c-hubs). I saw it two days ago and never recognized it while driving. So I think it is no problem (as many teamdrivers drive it that way also).

Where I can find alum washers for lower arm mounts? I see many 3mm washers, but they is 6mm of outer diameter or smallers. I think that I need shims with 7-8mm outer diam. What shims are using Team drivers?
Thanks!

It depends on the layout at Ardent. In my experience the LTC gives more steering however the MS 6 is more stable. If you've got one the original Mazda 6 is great on high speed tracks.

I've flipped mine and the ball cups are no where near the arms. You do have the ball studs mounted on the top and not underneath the hubs?

Right. The blocks are supposed to have the arm on the high side and the ball-stud mounted underneath (even shows you in the manual ). Steering links are pretty much parallel to the ground and are nowhere near hitting anything.
