i went with both the set screw and glue in the hole, the suspension feels way better now! cant wait to try out the car again, i really liked it!

regaqrding spares i havent found any store that has any 6.1 parts in stock, is everyone upgrading their old car or has associated turned really bad with producing enough spares?

Believe AE is working out the injection molding kinks with TT. They will not release spares that are just as faulty.

Yes, the "C" hubs will fit. If you use the old steering knuckles, you'll need to use the old bearings, crush tubes, and axles.

I spent last practice abusing them with a boosted 5.5 on carpet and no issues.

Thanks for the info!

I went to setup my 6.1 today for the first time and I am having trouble getting 5mm ride height in the front. With the reflex racing springs I can only get 5.8mm. I switched back to the ASC springs and can get 4.7 (which gives me very little room for adjusting for tweak). Is this normal?

Things I have checked so far:
- Backed the droop screws all the way out
- Shock upper collar all the way up
- Length of the shock is as short as I can make it
- Spring collar all the way down

Running the stock kit settings.

What tires? The shocks are long for sure, but even with Tamiya shocks which are 1-2mm longer in the cap, I can still get down to 5mm on kit springs with Sweep qts32. With VTA tires I could see an issue. I haven't mounted the RSD springs yet.

Solaris tires. Talked to a buddy and he said he can get to zero right height so I must have something not right. Hmmmmm

Make sure you have the correct spring retainers.

Hello, when building my 6.1 last week I noticed 2 issues, and was curious too see if anyone else has seen this. 1. The shock collars have not resistance at all. Yes I put the o-ring in. 2. The front belt does not mesh well with the spool or diff in front. Doesn't matter how tight or loose I set the belt. You can spin the tires on a stand slowly and watch the belt skip on the spool. Thanks
