For $22, no, not yet. But, it's..... TITANIUM! Technically it cuts weight, so not necessarily a downside to it.

The titanium wont wear as fast as the standard shafts either.

Default TC6.1

"They have soft bladders out, and soon will have ECS shafts. I am testing a dual-arm steering setup and top-deck cutouts. The softer bladders are very nice --- I drilled a 1mm hole in the plastic cap and it makes zero rebound without a "foamy" feeling very easy to do."

I will some RSD soft bladers with 1-1-1.5 pistons soon.
Have you some feedback of dual arm steering ? Like TC4, but i have heard that TC3 steering was the reason why the TC3 was magic ?
Look at the Russian car steering....

"For the arms (especially the rear with toe-in) I just sanded near the arm mount where it might rub the bulkhead. This is essential if you run 2-3* toe-in with a narrow track width."

"I wouldn't mind titanium hinge pins myself "
I use lunsforg hinge pins, but i feel it is more smooth with standard ones, but in the order hand lunsford pins are lighters.

So the light of lunsford with the titanium smooth of the ballstud should be perferct.

Thank you for your answers

Fred

Arms, c-hubs, rear hubs, steering knuckles. Shocks are a new design on the TC6.

The stock steering setup definitely feels more aggressive, which is fine for stock classes. I really notice a difference with the dual arm setup with low turn motors/mod motors, and on larger or more flowing tracks. It gives smooth, precise steering. I am using the XRAY setup, but tinkering with placement and servo location.

You are welcome I believe when Associated first released the car they marketed the benefit to current TC5 drivers that most if not all of the suspension carried over to the TC6.

Does anyone have a list of the lower arm mounts/bulkhead locations in order from lowest to highest roll center?

Obviously 0A would be the lowest... and 3B would be the highest. But what about in between? I see some people running a combo of 3A and 0B in the front... which is the lower roll center?

There is plenty to read on PetitRC regarding setup and knowhow.

Mainly thanks to Arnaud who visits here also regularly.

YES apart from the 2.56 bolt and nut for the diff !! You can replace with a 2mm bolt and Stainless M2 lock nut which will be better.

Cheers

Default Diff ?

Can someone explain what the characteristic changes are in a gear diff with regards to different weight oils? What is the difference between "diff" oil vs "shock" oil. I see people using both. Lastly what weight is recommended for high bite indoor asphalt 17.5 NT

Thanks
