Jag88,

You are correct! I filled the existing holes with a 2 part epoxy and once that cured, I made a hole between them.

If you don't want to deal with that, a silver spring in the outside hole in the arm with 2.5-5 wt lighter oil in the shock should be pretty close.

Incidentally, I noticed that I made a slight typo on the setup sheet...but I think most people will be able to figure it out:

On front camber I intended -1.5 ... not - 0.15! Sorry!

Are there any big differences between the TC5 and the TC6? Are most of the parts interchangeable? Thanks

Yes, weight, lower COG, narrower chassis, lipo friendly, more adjustability on the TC6. Parts are same from arms out + diff, driveshafts and belts. Chassis, top deck, steering, towers are all different. The TC5 is good, the TC6 is better.

Yes it would as long as you plan to run 1 of the staggered block setups that some are running now. What setup do you plan to run?

[QUOTE=Steve Weiss;9502417]Jag88,

You are correct! I filled the existing holes with a 2 part epoxy and once that cured, I made a hole between them.

What are the advantages of doing this? What does it improve ans/or take away?

Also on the setup sheet for the piston setup, what does this mean


3x1.15, 10mm OD

I guess the 3x1.15 is you have all 3 holes the same size ( you dont like the RSD piston hole design?)

..but still confused about the 10 mm OD.

Thanks.

OD usually means "out side diameter"

Thanks.
Regarding the shock location on the arm, I felt like the inside position on the arm felt easier/more consistant to drive, yet felt like it pushed in the middle and coming out of the corner... the outside hole in the front arm felt more aggressive but a bit inconsistant in the middle/coming out of the corner, so I decided to try a hole in between... which I feel was easy to drive but still retained consistant steering throughout the entry, middle, and exit of the corner.

Regarding the piston questions:

Yes, that means 3 holes that are the same size, 1.15 mm and "10 mm OD" refers to the outside diameter of the piston which I sanded down from the stock 10.08 mm to 10.00 mm.

I tried the 1,1,1.5 piston and it wasn't bad... but I felt like maybe it had too little low speed pack as it felt like the car stayed dumped over in the corner too long for my liking... I will probably go back and revisit them at some point in the near future as I think there's still a lot of potential to be found just in shock setup... but for the time being, I felt more comfortable with the shock setup from the posted setup.

Steve, I noticed you moved the steering post to the 1 position and moved the bell crank back to the 'C' postion. Why, and is this unique to the high bite that you run on ?
Thanks.
