took my time,enjoyed the build,and this, being my first associated kit, impressed me so much that i bought the sc 4x4 kit as well...and that too was a trouble free build... maybe you should slow down and enjoy the build i find its more fun and less stressful when i follow that thought...

I have put 3 together, 2 for myself and 1 for a fellow racer at the track. I have had zero issues between the 3 cars. It appears the small issues arent as common as it might first appear.

Hi

Just ordered my TC6 and really eager to start the build.

What servo horn is best to use in the TC6 with a Savox servo. Kit supplied or aftermarket alloy one or a Full high torque servo saver.

Cheers

Mark

The kit one should work well no need for an aftermarket horn.

Good suggestions on this one. One more thing to try:
Find the CVA you've built that seems the most free, and swap out some of it's parts with the one that binds up. Chances are that the binding CVA is a combination of all of the tightest fitting parts. You may have to mix and match between them until you get them pretty close. Then put the smoothest two on the front of the car and the others on the back. Either way, they'll break in after a run or two.

Also, I take the set screw right out and just put a drop of CA on the ring when assembled.
