Default RIGID FRONT AXEL

hy all

for the front rigid axel addict like myself you can do one on really simple way

start from a TC5 aluminium part you just trim the short side in order to take totally out the place where the ball bearing is fitted because the tc 5 is wider
the long one is the same

it is really easy you can fit you axel on a dremel or other and just turn it removing the aluminium

after you can use some little tube or other to craate the new place where you will apply the shim n the ball bearing + plastic parts

just try n let me know

have a nice rolling sunday

this way you got a hard spool in 10 mns

Asking on a TC6 post that question is like answering yourself..

Wait to get the 6.1 if you buy new.

It would be a good idea to go back about 15 pages and read up to here. You will get plenty of opinions on this subject. It get's a little redundant to answer the same questions over and over when the answers have already been given.
Your decision should be based on budget, parts availability and setup support at you track. The TC6.1 will be available soon so you may want to wait a bit or you could buy the car posted on the previous page. The TC6 is quite competitive.

+1, of course I am extremely pleased with the TC6. Easy to drive fast, setup and parts support everywhere with a relatively inexpensive price tag. The 6.1 is available soon, recommend that kit if you go with AE.

Adding rear toe is a quick and easy solution. I have found the difference of adding a .5mm shim is very noticeable for instance.

Also different axles (CVD's) and axle crush tube due to the larger bearings at the hubs (6x10 vs. 5x10).

I am a little surprise that only 2 are used in their car.(apparently for weight purpose)

Regards,
I have not tried this. When gear diffs were first introduced there were some concerns with their weight. If I remember correctly they were introduced by Serpent at a time when the minimum weight was hard to achieve. So making them as light as possible made sense.

Now even with two gear diffs (one filled with putty) the minimum weight is easy to achieve and the additional rotating mass of these diffs does not seem to be a problem.

I'll post it as soon as I receive it. My guess is tomorrow.

I think the TC6 is a better value.

You can try slightly more toe-in. And make sure the slipper spool is TIGHT. Depending on the class you are racing, you can tone down the motor so that it does not spin the tires as easily.

Default New TC6 setup posted

I just added Andrew Abbott's setup from his second place finish at the Australian Nationals. Looks like a great low to medium traction setup.
