Me too......... Having a good time doing it.

Question for you guys who have had the previous models. The bird's foot looking spacer between the supension mounts and the bulkhead......these seem pretty flimsy to me. When I install them, they crush a bit, and the mount ends up not being square. Has anyone else noticed this? I decided to put some metal suspension shims I had from another car in there. I'm curious to hear what you guys have experienced.

Thanks

There is an Error in the setup, the Steering Bellcranck and Steering Link values are swapped.

Thanks,

1,1,1.5 are Reflex pistons, usually AE #2 with 40 oil should be a good start.

THose clips work ok up front when running no toe. any mismatch from the front to the back of the inner pin and the plastic clips just deform and do not hold a setting. Most of us have either done what you have done or switched to the 12r5 bulkhead washers.

We are not talking about Keven setup sheet, but the TC6 manual had mistakes between the steering link/bellcrank.

This servo from Savox is recommended and many use them.. its low profile so it won't hang off the edge of the chassis and it is a good mix of speed and torque. Not a bad price either.
