Stocket by ourselves and any hobby shop who can get SCOTCH tapes.

Default how to balance tc6

guys, have a question, how you balance tc6? I was trying to check it on balance tool and need to put some weights on the battery lipo pack about 40g... I know my servo at the moment is normal profile i should use low profile but that is difference about 10g not 40g! I have seen on ETS pics that Levanen's car has no any weights mayby 10g but never on the battery! So im really confused now.

Hmm, I have 10g in front of the servo and 5g down the middle. I run a Futaba brushless shorty servo and have me esc and RX as close to the center as possible. I also run Reedy packs.

Thank you for the comments on how to secure the batt. I'm going to try the tape but also order that top velcro strap.

This car should be super easy to balance...I have not had to add weight on the battery side, but I do have some extra weight under the belt in the middle of the car so that I can make weight. It is important to try and get the electronics as close to the middle of the car as you can, and using a low profile Servo will help as well.

Both work well but right now I'm using the TOP strap with the Reedy packs and its a good fit.

Just remember to use some sandpaper and round the edges of any graphite, or it'll cut your tape! Same thing for long term survival of a velcro strap.

Default Steering setup

Hello,

I've a question for Rick Howart or tc6's engineer at associated on manual's page 23 (Ackermann & Steering Rate).

The steering bellcrank schema has positions 7&8 and A&B&C
The steering link schema has positions 1&2 and A&B

The chart lists Steering bellcrank like 7B, 8A.... and Steering Link with positions like 2A, 1C, 2B...

Extract from the manual :

Steering Steering Steering
Link Bellcrank Speed

2A 7B Fast
2A 8B Fast
1C 7B Slow
1C 8B Slow
2B 7B Medium
...


Should I invert the number (And the chart header) for having the righs charts or the chart is completely false ?

That would be :

Steering Steering Steering
Bellcrank Link Speed

7A 2B Fast
8A 2B Fast
7C 1B Slow
8C 1B Slow
7B 2B Medium
.....

I Hope my question is clear. :-s

Thank you,
Sébastien

this would make sense as there is no C position on steering link

This is correct:

8A 2B Fast
7C 1B Slow
8C 1B Slow
7B 2B Medium

I posted a new TC6 setup sheet from Steve Weiss. This is from our local track WCRC which is pretty high grip and sticky. It is an unusual surface so the setup might not suit everyone but it should translate to other high grip tracks.
