Thanks for your advice.

My DIY skills are not that great so will prob wait till spec-r bring a direct fit.

Thanks again.

i agree.

i FINALLY broke my tc6 this weekend after taking a huge hit on a wall which broke the steering knuckle and rear toe block on the same side.

so a total of $5 worth of damage.

try getting off that cheap with a xray!

The reason I was asking is that I have some material left over from the car bra's we used to install at a dealership I used to work at, and it basically looks like clear vinyl, only allot more durable. This stuff protects 1:1 cars from rocks and debris at high speeds, I would imagine it would also protect a chassis as well. I might have to start drawing some stuff up tomorrow and get it ready.

I was able to shim my arms so that they had no slop, and by the end of the day, they still had no slop. I have two TC6s, and I ran mod with one and 17.5 with the other today for a club race. The car that had the Dial-A-Grips, had no slop issues all day, and my car with the stock blocks had to be checked and tightened after every run. Nice job creating these Verndog. They are winners.
My pleasure Brian, glad they are helping give that lost time back. Brian was actually running a staggered block setup that IIRC was a 0 in front and a 1 in the rear. He was able to accomplish that with adjusting the dial a grip with a single block. I had some extra material on this run so as an option I added a 2 block that spans the entire range of AE blocks (and everything between that they don't) along with the 0 for those that want to run stagger or lower block setups. Those will be available in 4 or 8 packs this week. Much of what shipped last week is just making it to people or the track so we should start to get more feedback this week.

You bet TC6 rules, this weekend managed to get a hard 4th place at the Portuguese Nationals and secured the leading of the Championship.

What is the best brand of 64 pitch gears for this car? My PRS gears seem off centered to the right of the spur about 50% I cant nove it to the left because of the flat spot on the Motor shaft. Dont want to flip the pinion because it rubs the belt.

Thanks

Does your pinion and spur line up good? Is it necassary to use a slotted spur for the motor screws? Or is ok to use the front and bottom holes?
