We have 31364...31362 will be here soon..

No that tape is only to protect graphite from scratches. But two weights will stop the battery from movements.

Any recommendations whether to put a 5th body post on the front or the back of the shock tower?

I was asking about putting it on the front vs the back side of the tower.

Also, I mounted up a speed 6. It seems to sit quite low. I put 2mm spacers under the front body posts, bit I think it will still drag. Do you guys just cut higher than the cut line?

Ah sorry. I use back side of the tower. And never use spacers under body posts. But most guys in my club use it. Anyway cut lines are never correct and always is needed to correct cutting after first run.

My local track is putting on a little carpet race later this month and im thinking about picking up a 6.1 to race in the 17.5 boosted rubber tire class. The last time i ran carpet it was with a tc5 on foams. After reading through this thread it seems like it would be a good idea to pick up the reflex bladders and pistons (or losi pistons). I see on Hebert's latest setup he is using yokomo springs but i see that some guys here like the reflex springs too, preference? I am not aware of a specific tire that we shoud use but it looks like the popular one is the sweep qts between the major races. It looks like the Hebert setup would be a good starting point for my track, is there anything that would also be recommended? Thanks in advance!

In order to run the speed6 ROAR legal (on the upper cut line), I use the 12r5.1 posts on the front (same thing, just one hole taller), and I space those up by 1 to 2mm depending on the track and how much dive/roll I'm running in the car.

If you are running the 6 with the old mounts you should be somewhere around 2mm per side...........if you're running the 6.1 with the offset mounts you won't need much if any shims.

I would say check the setup page on AE's website, there are quite a few setups for indoor asphalt.
I'm told the setup from Bob carries over very well to carpet.

Matt-

The Reflex bladders and Pistons are Great!! i also use the springs too on some set-ups. Get an extra gear diff for the front.

AL rims/wheels are for shelf queens only... unless you can drive without hitting anything... EVER... they will bend...

+ 1 on the reflex bladders, pistons and springs. Best investment you can make.

My two cents...

The nicest thing about the Reflex springs is that (so far) they've always been the same length right out of the pack. No more buying multiple sets of AE springs and mixing/matching to find one good set.

Hi guys!

I am a pretty experienced Nitro driver but I just entered the Electric class and bought a Team Associated TC6.1 car.

I have a question regarding the setup of the car.

According to the basic setup you should have 5mm Ride Height and 6mm Droop at the front and 5mm Droop at the rear.

If I use these settings with my Sweep 32 tyres (I don't know if different tyres have different diameter in the electric class ) then the droop screws almost touch the chassis and there is really small up-travel for the suspension.
If I lift the car the droop screws immediately touch the chassis.

Is this normal or I am doing something wrong?

Thanks a lot!
