Finally received and build my 6.1 last night. First I was a little concered about missing parts because the two seals on the left & right of the Box have been broken ?????? The middle seal was still in place.
However, building was easy, all parts in the Box. No problem with play or wobbling parts, everything fits nice and tight.
On the Starting Setup I used pretty much the "Standard" Setup with some modifications on the shocks and 3A Mounts all around.
Question - Looking at Juhos and Kevens latest Setup sheets they use for the Front - FWD Mount Shim 3,5mm Rwd Mount Shim 3,0mm.
There is no Indication which Mounts are used, Standard or Offset ?
By the values I would think they use the Standard Mounts ?
For me, using the Offset Mounts that would mean add a 1mm shim in Front and 05 Rear ?
Running Modified Speed passion 4,5T ,LRP CPX Tires, Yokomo Pink/Blue/ modified (V-shape) 3-hole pistons on our High Grip, technical but still fast, permanent Indoor Carpet Racetrack I was absolutely happy with the performance. Car felt absolutely "Safe" with lots of steering.
Only ran it two packs since it was very late in the evening, but the Setup is a good start to work from. Will play around a little bit before I throw in my RSD parts from my TC 6. Especially the springs from RSD worked really good for me, even a little better than the Yokomos.
Will try the HPI DCJ Shafts as well since with the new spool there is quite some chatter on full steering. Yes, we use max steering on our high grip carpet Hairpins
Gear Diff in Front with 500k "Oil" is on the ToDo list as well
. However, on our Tight Track I always felt more comfortable with the Spool/Slipper.
Can't wait to get back on Track again
