Anyway, I plan on running the TC6 hubs until they offer a better hub, i.e. aluminum would be nice.

I noticed the same thing with the plastic that you did, it just seems pitted or bubble inside the hubs. Seems like the best way to go is just use the older 4 degree hubs.

I'll find out when I get one and try it out. I'll have help from some experienced sedan guys here to set it up, especially if we find out it's too flexible.
We have 3 or 4 guys in Boise/Nampa Idaho, still running Foams.

I just got the 6.1, wonder if I can set it up to outrun my TC5F on foam?
Any inputs on set up?
Thanks

Default 1st run

Got the car build and went together fairly well. No slop on the caster blocks and a little deformity on the gear diff but at least it doesn't leak. I had the opportunity to give it's first shake down on our reconfigured technical 102'x 60's ozite carpet yesterday and I am very pleased on how the car performed. Car is very predictable. I went with box setup at first but over steered too much to my liking. Raised rear roll center and went up 2 holes on the rear shock and thats all it took to get me dialed in. Awesome car compared to my 415 MRE which was also a good car back in the day. Great car Associated has put out.

What springs came in your 6.1 kits? The manual shows green and silver, but my box had 4 silver springs.

Default Belt tension/adjustments

Newb question- what tuning is there in changing belt tension? Since there are 31 positions for every cam type (tho some are redundant), what's the benefit for one or the other? Is tension directly based on trigger response? There is nothing in the manual. Thanks.
