I am back from the LRP-HPI-Challenge in Augsburg. Today I was able to lap some the fastest times in the 17,5t field. And to give the T3'2011, TCX, and so on guys a hard day. But I had to do it in a One-Lap-Qualifying-Style and this definitly makes it hard to concentrate for a long time. I, too couldn't switch to a consistent driving rhythm.
Now my question: Did someone of the gifted-already-owning-a-TC6-guys compare the pure speed of TC5 and TC6 yet? I am interested to know if the new car is "just" easier to drive, or if it also gains some thenth per lap.

The belt runs along the top deck, just barely above it.

The new car is much easier to drive hard.
The old car was unpredictable at times (motor, chassis rubbing).
I found myself driving the old car at 95% but with the new car its 100%

I used TiR axles and Spec R Yokomo diff. You dont need the axles if you open up the outdrives a bit. Only some of my TiR axles would fit, it was really close.

Not sure if the AE axles would fit the diff made by Yokomo. It seems the tolerances are a bit better on the Yokomo diff but I dont have one yet.

I didnt need any balance weight because the motor is so far in. Only had extra weight in the center of the car between the battery and electronics.

The belt runs pretty close but does not rub.

Hey Juho,

Thanks for the information already provided.

I was wondering what your front/rear weight split or percentage is?

Thanks

One of the UK team guys had his TC6 on the track at our local club at the weekend and it looked fantastic - he was already good with the TC5R but the TC6 looked to have amazing grip and looks very well balanced.

You can check out his thoughts on my site; http://rcracingni.co.uk/wordpress/?p=1312

Along with some mobile phone pics... not the greatest

So far going by what I've been told one of the Australian shops will see the car sometime from 7-14/11/10

I've noticed on a number of photos the tc6 has a spur gear with large holes in it? Would be possible to still run the spur gears that I have been running my tc5x?

I think so; the motor mount has 3 holes, and you can get to the bottom and front ones without a 'holed' spur.

Ideally you'd want to use the front and rear holes as this will give less chance of the motor flexing against the mount, but with anything other than a full blown mod I would have thought the bottom/front holes will be okay.

I've never had problems with a motor moving with just two screws, and I've been hit hard enough motor side to have the ESC and Rx to be moved inward by 1 inch.
