Hey guys,

I currently am looking at a possible new chassis and was wondering what people thought of the TC6? I was trying to get something that wasn't xray because our track is littered with Xray's and I prefer to be different.

Is the car good? Durable? Any Majour flaws with the car?

Thanks in advance

At last found it. It is in his setup sheet from the last Euros, it was an indoor tarmac track, high grip.

"2 Gears in Geardiff more Steering middle of corner then 4 ! but 4 easier to drive ! "

His english is not that good, let's ear your thoughts. BTW he used 2000CST in the diff but didn't share the brand.

Short answer..... yes.

Long answer...... definitely yes.

......

Friday I tested 3A fronts/0B years, with 16.5/12.5 springs, short links all around, lots of droop, and the car was HOOKED! Super aggressive but carried a ton of corner speed......

I correct answer would be, all in the set up and driver. They are both competitive along with all the top cars.

Now how about easier to drive and making us novice guys look good out of the box... that answer would be yes and hell yes in my book.

Hey guys just got into onroad and got a used tc6 to start out with i really like the car but my question is if i am running on a small carpet track would you go with a slipper spool or a ball diff? My car had the slipper spool in it when i got it but everyone at my track says to take it out and run a diff. I have looked at alot of setup sheets and it seems most are using spools up front. Then when it comes to sway bars there is even more confusion coming from a offroad background but one thing at a time i guess. Any help would be great, thanks.
