You should shim out the center battery brace (by the belt). Try a pieces of servo tape and leave the backing on the side facing the battery. You may have to dremel the battery braces (L shaped ones) to accomodate the difference. I glued a piece of carbon fiber to mine and dremeled it down which also worked..

Reflex Racing will be releasing the ultimate "fix" soon...

I just used another center battery stop from ASC31318, placing one forward and one rearward instead of only one in the center. $5 solution to a percieved problem.

The TC6 is as capable as any of the kits mentioned. The questions you should ask yourself is, what car fits your budget taking into account replacement parts costs and availability. Do you have resources in your area for set up tips relative to the track you race on. These are all quality kits but the TC6 cost less and works well.

good point I have came to notice the Group of people that have the same car are the people who run the fastest. Not the Person who has a car nobody else has.

+1 here...

Actually the kit should come with 2 stops. How much more would it cost?
I makes sense don't you think?

I just put some weights in the middle and they keep battery i one position. But yes, AE should do another stop.

How can you run the weights in the middle and be balanced? lipo is way lighter then the rest of the side usually... I just got my TC6... havent gotten to that part yet.

Jeff. Got a latest setup for a Med to low bite track?

Also... I am having a struggle... What Spur do I run where I can get the dam wrench through to the rear motor mount... I want to be at 100 spur or less. Dont want to have to get another range of pinions to run a higher spur.

I always run a 96 spur. I agree that it shouldn't be balanced but its pretty close to being perfect using fishing string method.

The electronics are pretty close to the center of the car, it is much more balanced than say the tc5 was. With a low profile servo, micro rx and the transponder on the bumper (instead of on the servo), I actually come in a couple grams light on the electronics side.

+1 for a 96 for blinky. Use the other motor mount hole on the bottom of the mount, then you don't have to worry about reaching thru the spur
