Usually when the grip is really high some team drivers use the hard parts. The regular parts tend to flex more which can provide more grip. Sometimes when the weather is really hot hard plastics can be a good choice as they will not be affected by the heat as the regular parts. I almost always run the regular parts, but have tried hard parts and cannot feel too much of a difference.

You can use them to mount the camber links directly to the shocktowers themselves instead of the bearing caps.

You have 6 holes just to the outside of the bulkheads, if you mount here, you want to use the locking nuts, but in the kit, are camber links that are to long for this, would need to purchase the shorter camber links. Hope this helps...

+1 on better instructions. SC10 2wd, SC10 4wd good, TC6 not so good.

You need to dremel one side of the case so the bearing sits further in, and you need to dremel the dogbones so they fit in the outdrives.

If anyone want's their Spec-R diff modified to fit the TC6, I will provide the service to do the machining on my lathe. Ship to me with a prepaid padded envelope or return shipping label for a flat rate USPS box and I will professionally machine the parts to fit correctly instead of butchering the components with a Dremel.
I will only charge $10 for the machining service, satisfaction guaranteed!

PM me with any questions.

eyy if anyone needs a parking lot setup, this would be a good point to start.



Also i have a few questions:

1. Has anyone tried the Diff T-Nut - Minilocknut, with the diff thrust bolt, of the AE B4 Buggy?. I´ve Heard that it would be a good option when you damage the stock Mini-Locknut trying thighten the screw for the spool....

2. Which are the "ball ends" that i should use to get 5mm of rear droop?

Thanks a lot from Bogota!

I needed 20g on electronics side (low profile servo, spektrum micro rx, SXX TC spec, X12 6.5, no motor fan or heatsink, reedy 5500 pack). With a standard size servo, a heavier esc or a fan/heatsink on the motor, you will probably need 5-10g on batt side.
