I just finished painting mine,and its too short in the wheelbase..

Lucky i had a Speed 6 lying around.
That's strange, i didn't had any issue fitting the ltc-r on my tc6 (well you have to put a pair of washers under front body posts to raise them a bit, but that's it)....

do you have any picture?

Wow. Took my TC6 out for the first time yesterday and what a fun day. I love that car. I am a rookie and coming over from a TCX which was the first car I owned.

The TC6 was WAY more stable on the straight, turned like a dream in the infield section and so much fun to drive. I have to say it was not a set up issue either. Both cars had awesome set ups from really great drivers.

Lastly and most important...WAY MORE DURABLE. I broke one part yesterday and it was my fault I did not tighten down a screw enough which caused the camber block to break.

Lots of fun, can't wait to get out again.

It's VERY close. It may barely touch if at all and not enough to do any damage to belt.

Rotax, notice how much less material there is between the arch and the rear bumper on Jorge's shell.

You must cut the rear arches out when the shell is mounted so you get the correct position of the rear wheels.

I always dab some grease on the end of the rear axle then push the shell in to leave a mark for the centre of the wheel.

The problem with some of these bodies is that you must shave down the front bumper a bit, otherwise you will not be able to push the body all the way back. This looks like it is exactly what happened with yours. Without shaving the front of your bumper, the bumper pushes the front of the body. I usually use some 400 Grit sandpaper to sand it down and then I smooth it out with 600-800.

Ding ding...we have a winner! It helps to sand the top front edge down and put a radius to break the corner for some bodies as well.
