For mounting bodies, are you guys trimming the bumper back to let the body wheel wells center on the axles? My mazdaspeed 6 is like 5mm forward, and the 37 I was gonna try would be even farther forward.

Had a blast today with my TC6.1, dialed my set up in for my local track - Tarmac - medium grip and lots of sharp corners. I started with stock kit settings but found the car oversteered too easily. So i Moved the rear shock mounts inside 1 hole on both arm and tower then made both front and rear ride height ~6mm (bumpy track).

Anyhow this is the damage i did today to the car. Destroyed an old body shell and smashed the C-Hub.

The XRAY steering setup is 302506, and the Serpent servo mount is 401369.

I removed the front battery brace and just cut a tape slot.... I don't like velcro straps anyway, and I've NEVER had the battery come loose using tape.

Default Losi #57 pistons

I know most of you run the Reflex pistons or the stock #2's that come with the kit, but I've also heard others running the Losi #57's. What's the reason and advantages for running the Losi #57 over the stock #2's? If running the #57, do you couple them with different spring combo? We have a temp track 100x60 CRC ozite med to high grip that I would like to try the #57's on but I don't want to spend the day testing it since the track is temporary. Any constructive input would be much appreciated.

The 57 is just better quality and fits perfect compared to the stock Associated piece. You can't go wrong running that or the Reflex piston!

Default Spur gear shaft question

Building a TC6.1. Noticed that when building the spur gear shaft assembly, if I include the shims between the bearing and the C clip, the resulting assembly does not spin freely. If I leave out the shims it seems OK. Anyone else experience this?

Thanks,

Henry

Yes. Experienced the exact same thing. Just left them out. Assume it won't be a problem.

Thanks. I will have to look into this.

Question is: how this mod for steering made you faster?

Regards!

I was just going to do a search, I noticed the same thing. I think I'm going to sand the inside of the pulleys to make them a little narrower. Looks like the outer bearing race could rub on the e-clip if the shims are not used.

I tried that but it will not do the trick. The slots in the spur gear hub will only allow the spur gear pulley to go down so far. In order to get the spur gear pulley to seat farther down, you will have to grind the slots in the spur gear hub deeper.

I hoping somebody with more experience will let us know if leaving the shims out will become an issue.
