Thats messed up. Have you verified 100% certain that the surface you are checking to is DEAD FLAT? I've seen several pit boards that are not REAL flat.

From there, I'd try the place you bought it from and see if they will send you the chassis only and you can build some while you wait.

This was without any parts fixed on the lowerdeck for both.

Can i do ? warantly ? is it right to have this tweak without parts ?
You're the second person on this thread to have the issue of a warped chassis. I'd contact AE for a replacement, they seem to have excellent customer service from all reports and should get you a replacement out quickly.

Went to check with some LHS, they have no clue about this.

In order to used a Spec R gear diff (meant for BD5) in TC6, do we need an modification?? Can we do it with the original uj???

Please advise.

Thanks for the information.

Spec-R Yokomo Gear Diff out drive is a little bit tight.

For TC5/TC6, Sand off CVD(Universal) ends to make the room.

My local customers are using Spec R Yokomo Gear Diff in TC6.

Thanks.

Curious what they are saying about the SpecR universals? I tried a set and 1 of the 2 was badly bound up at full tilt (the reason I bought them) so I took them apart and found both had bent pins that appeared to be too soft and quite a bit of slop in hole size. I put Xray pins into them and decided to leave those as 008 backups and use the Cyclone HVT in the TC6.

I had the same issue with the universals pins. I went to a machine shop supply store and bought drill blanks the proper size and cut them to fit. Much stronger and a better fit, of course I still do the shrink wrap deal to finish it off.

And btw your dial a grip looks very slick.

So your running the set screw and shrink as backup? How have they held out? Nice thing about the Xray pins is they are nice and hard and have a small flat for set screw...but their pretty proud of them price wise.

BTW...thank you.

This was done on a set of SpecR universals, and I actually only ran the shrink without the set screw, I beleive the setscrew is the cause for the pin issues and also a bit of a bind issue in some cases, not a perfect machine job so the pin can't float in the cutout like it should. Plus the set screws almost seem soft and strip out too easy. With the right shrink wrap like what used to come with the LOSI lcd rebuild kits not using the set screw should be no problem, although I haven't run this in a mod motor application, so I can't say that throwing the pin isn't a possibility, but i doubt it.

Warren whens the next time your coming to jackson? Received the package Kevin thanks. Also dont waste your time with the spec r universals, the metal is garbage and wear out really quickly. Not worth wasting your money..

I use the yokomo BD5 spec r gear diff. on my tc6 with the stock universals. Just like spring71 said you just have to file down the ball part of the universal in order to get them to fit. If you want proof I can take a pic for you.
