I think you should be amazed why AE still didnt solve the problem at all in TC6.1?

Don't have these myself, but I've heard others say they work pretty good!
Does anyone have the pic how it works?

Dial-A-Grips solve this problem. I run some since several months and everything is fine + you have the option of a real fast rollcenterchange.

I'd just go to the hardware store and buy piano wire. You don't even have to bend it on the TC6.1. Just cut to length and done.

I would like to add my 2 cents to this hinge pin mount "issue".

The new mounts are an improvement over the old ones. I didn't really have a problem with the old ones.............its not like they would loosen up while you were driving. It would take a hard crash to get them to shift. If they did shift the car was still driveable.

If you have a hard hit on the boards in practice or a race you should be checking your car over before the next time it hits the track.
This would include making sure the arms are free...........just takes a few seconds.

With that being said I have had some hard hits with the new car and not even shifted the hinge pin mounts the slightest bit.

This is a non-issue, there is nothing to worry about with the new hinge pin mounts.

Andy Moore and Olly Jefferies driving one of Ollys TC6's using 1 radio.
Olly on Throttle and Andy on Steering

Qualified 5th in 13.5 boosted class and got a 5th and a 3rd in the finals giving them 3rd overall.

Quite impressive lol
