The car handles great
I copied the exact same setup onto the 6.1 and the car has way to much steering going into a corner and not enough steering mid to exit it also looses the rear end if you change direction left to right to left
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Bump

Got an awesome price on a 6.1 on vacation in Hong Kong. So far the only real issue is one of the ball studs doesn't have a proper hex. Also, there seems to be a bit of slop in a couple hinge pins. I don't have my caliper with me to measure them, though. All the bulkhead threads seem to be fine and the CVDs are nice and free.

Strangely, my CVD bones are magnetized.

More toe would as said above, you can also take out the 2mm shim on the front knuckle, or you can go to 1A camber link on the rear of the car. or go to 0B or3A on the arm mounts in the rear

+1...I can run an AE cheaper at full retail than an Xray with at least 35% discount,In todays current climate this counts big in my book for the club driver!!
One things for sure In this part of the world I can go to any strange track carpet or Tarmac with one or two of my favored set ups knowing the car will be easy to drive,stable and not far off the pace just needing some minor adjustments and importantly a stress free fun day!! ....I honestly cant say that for some other current makes I have played with.....And compared to some makes/teams here in the UK the club driver can rest assured that what he buys is what the top drivers are using...not some hybrid or development.

So what if there's a little slop in the C hubs,TBH ive run them tight and hav'nt noticed a difference...A little "active" castor wont hurt.LOL...All makes have minor issues,when it come to this the AE aint bad at all!

Do you own a TC6?? I have had 8+ Xrays and 4 TC5 / TC6 / TC6.1 variations. The Xray's are second to none in build quality, but the issues on the TC6 are so minor their barely worth mentioning. Not to mention that for the cost differences, the TC6 is the hands down winner. And unless you like buying a new chassis every year like clockwork, avoid the Xray. That's their MO.

I quit buying Xrays mainly because I hated buying a new car every year to stay current (It was a mental thing with me - I always want the latest and greatest ). I am just as fast or faster with the TC6, the parts are wayyy cheaper and easier to get.
