I'm interested in the changes they made to the car other than on the pictures. Can't image what they would improve, the car is quite good out of the box. I can image they add the gear diff default now.

How do you guys secure the sway bars? The bar is too loose. What part number to secure it? This is a pic from speedtech.

  • Double Bellcrank
  • Gear Diff (plural?)
  • Spool
  • More Flex
  • Suspension Block Fix
  • Suspension Pieces from Ats

Can't decide what car for next year. Have not raced in a while, so I'm still going to suck (Worse). Associated is cheap, at least. But Yokomo and Serpent are so pretty. (Have to look good carbon side up, 3 laps down.)

#30107 — TC6.1 Factory Team Kit
1:10 Scale 4WD Electric On Road Competition Touring Car Kit

The RC10TC6.1 Factory Team kit is the next evolutionary step in touring car design from Team Associated. Building on the successfully proven TC6, the designers behind the doors of Area 51 added even more features, making the TC6.1 easier to tune and drive.

The TC6.1 narrow chassis has been designed around current brushless motor systems and LiPo batteries, optimizing weight distribution for superior handling. To further enhance handling performance, the TC6.1 has received updated suspension arms for increased stiffness and strength. These new suspension arms feature finer shock adjustments to help get the TC6.1 totally dialed in.

New caster blocks and rear hubs found in the TC6.1 feature integrated inserts for caster and rear-toe angle adjustments. Now you can change these angles by merely changing the inserts and not the whole assemblies, making the TC6.1 even quicker and easier to tune to the track conditions.

The TC6.1 features the new H.D.R.C. (High Definition Roll Control) system, taking anti-roll bar technology to the next level. The H.D.R.C. is built on a solid aluminum center member that rolls on a bearing surface. Roll stiffness is controlled and adjusted by the two wires that mount into the sides of the aluminum center member and link to the suspension arms. By removing the torsional flex with the aluminum center member, a higher definition of roll control is achieved with the different wire options.

New for the TC6.1 is the lightweight rear gear differential that provides maximum performance and low maintenance. The front spool now features replaceable composite outdrives that still retain the low friction, free movement performance of the CVA blades, while being much more economical to replace after a hard impact. Symmetrical blue aluminum bulkheads and cross-compatibility with TC6 chassis components also help make the TC6.1 more economical to run.

The TC6.1 comes equipped with the Factory Team VCS3 shock package that features hard-anodized threaded shock bodies with bottom-loaded seals. The VCS3 shocks are super smooth and have an increased stroke for more up-travel at the wheels, all adding up to more consistent overall traction.

Multi-position steering system with additional Ackermann options and an improved steering input rate gives the TC6.1 more consistent handling. Blue titanium turnbuckles come with new ballcup eyelets for easier access to the ball studs.

These are only a few of the many refinements that you will find in the RC10TC6.1 Factory Team kit - making it yet another Champion by Design!

TC6.1 Factory Team Kit Features:

- Updated suspension arms for increased stiffness and strength, as well as finer shock adjustments
- Hubs and caster blocks use integrated inserts for adjustable caster and toe angles
- H.D.R.C. (High Definition Roll Control) system
- Lightweight rear gear diff for maximum performance and minimal maintenance
- Front spool with replaceable composite outdrives
- Offset arm mounts help increase durability and minimize shims between mount and bulkhead
- Ultra-narrow chassis layout optimized for Lithium Batteries and Brushless Motors
- Symmetrical bulkhead layout minimizes spare part cost
- Multi-position steering system to fine-tune Ackermann/steering rates
- VCS3 Shock with hard-anodized threaded shock bodies
- Titanium turnbuckles with new ballcup eyelets for easy access
to ball stud
- 16 precision ball bearings
- Cross-compatibility with TC6 chassis components

I take it that the parts will all be available to update the current car - I take it that the new parts are the new plastics (arms/hubs etc.) and the gear diff. Interested in the new roll bar system and hope it all fits my current investment (considering I have a brand new TC6 still in a box for outdoors!)

Got a brand new TC6 this week

What exactly do I need now to upgrade it to TC6.1????

Now the AE TC6 will come out as the most expensive car I could get

And I wanted to start the new season with a up to date car not an old version ...

This is just a disappointment ...
