Well, I can tell you how I killed mine. A young Kid thought it's a good idea to set his car back on Track on the long straight, just in front of my 4,5T powered TC6 approaching at Max Speed

Killed a Bulkhead and some Plastik parts. Fortunately in Germany the parts are available

Only the out drives are different.

hello,

A little question about spur gear for the tc6.

I saw we can use the x ray model of rw racing with the "offset "

For my tamiya i bought a lot of Rw universal without the offset

too bad i can't post picture of it to explain better what i mean

Are they compatible with the tc6 ? or the offset is needed for the allignment of the belt (20 dt pulley / 40 dt pulley)

thanks

Default wheel chattering

Ok, so far this has not been a good build for me. I'm in the final stages of setting up my car, but the last issue is with the wheel chattering-I've read the forum and people have suggested turning down the duel rate, but my question is, does the chattering continue with car set on the track as opposed to it occurring only on the pit stand-has anyone just tried breaking in the cvd's for a little to find that it resolves the chattering issue?

I just put mine together and have NO chatter on the bench at full turn. What you need to do is the slots that go through the dogbone axle need to be burr and sharp edge free, and the barrel nut needs to have the pin hole deburred (break edge burr free). Then after doing this, assemble with black diff grease and grab the CVA 1 end in each hand, crank to full tilt, and spin holding 1 end with thumb and fingers. Feel for any hop in there, and take the smoothest 2 and put in the front.

half way through my build.

what I have noticed so far;

not too happy with the spur arrangement, this is new to me.

not happy with the motor mount being raised a couple of mm off chassis,even though it has the motor brace for support. This is new to me too

cvd's bind when using grubs screws, so I didn't put the grub screws on, I gather with the sleeve, the pins not falling out anyway. I dont understand as the grub screw head is not touching anything to make it bind.

chassis was tweak free before build, now half way through have noticed a tweak. Has anyone else noticed this? I criss crossed the screw pattern for top deck tightening, but even with the screws loose, there is a tweak!!! All the coutersink screws seem deep enough into the chassis, so its not the screws protruding thats making the chassis warp. I dont understand what to do next to get rid of it. Is there a way to tweak free a chassis by yourself? just dont have an extra hand laying around

AE must of went through all the bulkheads, as I can see a freshly tapped hole, which was done AFTER anodizing. At least the newer kits will be all good.

Missing the steering bellcrank C-clip, no big deal, just need to order from amain but thats an extra 2 weeks wait as I'm outside the US and know that my LHS will not have that part.

I used a pit boss tweak plate to assemble mine and it stayed DEAD flat. Check the screws, the stock kit screw heads that have the stamped letters on head are thicker then normal and stick out past flush on chassis. Suggest replacing those.

Verngog, I went to check on this tweak plate you were speaking of, and was impressed with what I learned. How do you like the tool? Do you use it often or just with new builds? Interested in purchasing one, but want to make sure I will use it often. Thanks.

Do I like it?? I designed it and build them....so YA.

I use it all the time and even for bench work. Once you clamp the TC to the plate it's way easier to work on the TC from arms out, and top side general maintanence. It works for all TC's except the Yokomo BD5 which is way narrow at the arms. Click the link in my sig to take you there.
