Two quick questions:
1. Has anyone else experienced fragility in the rear hubs or steering blocks of their TC6?
2. How would you compare the integrity/longevity of the TC6.1 vs TC6 as it pertains to these two areas?
To me, it looks like the 6.1 has a considerably thicker top portion of the rear hub with less of a "reach/rake" to the inner ball stud holes than the setup of my hubs. It's hard to tell though from the pics I've seen.
The steering blocks on the 6.1 seem to be insignificantly different.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
PS...I've only done a few hot laps with the car so please bear with my lack of ability to avoid collisions with obvious barriers in the track. I need to get better on the wheel...don't hit anything...don't break!
It looks like the new plastic is stronger, you can change the wishbones cheaply enough but if you want to change the other bits, you need new bearings etc..see previous couple of pages for explanations.
Yep !! the easiest is to stop hitting parts of the track unfortunately...
