Thanks all.

Centering servo and place a horn 90deg were done and have been like that since I built TC6.

Steering has been adjusted by EPA and Trim and I have been happy
But since I am so OTAKU and start to look for some inperfections and am confused.

When steering angle are equal right to left, should servo horn travel right to left be equal as well?

When X=Y, should n=m like n:m=x:y ? otherwise steering angle is equal right to left but travel time could differ right to left in steering.

I probably should shut and practice but am quite busy n hard to find time to hit track so I have more time poking my car on desk

Thanks for all your help!

IMHO..... the servo horn needs to lean toward the rear of the car slightly to get equal throw. Just how i found my 6 to work best......

Ok guys I'm building a new TC6 from scratch since I got most of the parts to build a new roller without buying a new kit. I'm going to build it with all the parts that the TC6.1 has. Here's is my question.

1. Does the new Anti-roll bar set direct bolt fit on the TC6 bulkhead without any modification?

2. I'm also going to use all the new suspension components to this build.

Default Parts compatibility

Are the TC6.1 caster blocks compatible with the TC6 front arms and steering blocks? I'd like to use the new caster blocks without having to purchase the other items if possible.

off the top of my head, you will need:
the new anti-roll assembly front and rear
new front and rear arms
new chubs
new rear hubs
new driveshafts and axles?
gear differential
new spool assembly

they should fit. i know the tc6 hubs will fit in the tc6.1 arms.
i think you'll be a lot happier if you put the tc6.1 arms on the car rather than just the hubs. i don't think you will find any performance increase just changing the hubs. the new arms gives the car more corner speed and grip imo

A solution for the play between arms and Hubs.

Just use lunsforg pins. They are a little bit bigger.
I have listened that with this pins everything is perfect.

Regards.

Thanks guys that's all I need to know. I'm going to use just front and rear arms Of the TC6.1 and use the TC6 hubs since a lot of guys are having problem with too much play when TC6.1 hubs when use. I'm very happy with TC6 that's why I decided just to build another One with some minor upgrades instead of buying the new TC6.1 kit... I'm also upgrading the steering using tamiya 416 dual steering arm and serpent S411 servo holder to flip my servo 90 degree.

I think you will need the new arms as well, the 6.1 hubs are a hair wider than the 6 ones. I know I need a .25mm (or so) shim when using the old hubs on the new arms

Need help please with gearing starting point. I have 17.5 stock blinky and 48 pitch 87. What pinion should I start off with. Everything is stock except I have yokomo rear gear diff

Do I have to change spur for stock?

Also does anyone know what servo tape is white that is easy to remove? Does associated make that?

Thanks

You will need a much smaller spur for 17.5 blinky. We normally use a 96t 64p. Thats a 72 in 48p. For pinion, depends on what FDR you want (which depends on motor). With a sonic I like a 3.76 FDR, which is 96/51 for me. That means you will need around a 38t 48p gear.

I race offroad pretty hardcore. This is my first venture to the on road side. I just bought a tc6.1 to run the vta class with a 25.5. What gearing should I start with.

Thanks
Brandon
