A yoga mat is similar and what a lot of drivers use.

As far as I've seen there pretty similar. The fastest AE guy ar our track still mostly has the TC6 setup. Otherwise the TC6.1 has a newer spool and rear gear diff. The TC6.1 arms and hubs are beefier and the arms have 3 holes for shock instead of just two

The TC6.1 rollbars have absolutely zero slop. Otherwise I just built one for a friend and it looks the same except for spool, gear diff, arms, hubs and rollbar

I'm not sure any geometry has changed with the arms and hubs? You'll probably be happy with both

275 for a new TC6 is a steal

Also letting us know what motor/class your running is very helpful as setup does change depending on motor power

13.5/17.5/mod?

Kevin Jelich and I both tested and drove this setup for 17.5 and found it very nice handling and easy to drive

And they always retain their shape, come in a variety of colors, and are relatively cheap. The yoga mat replaced a long line of pit towels and mats that I've gone through in my years in the hobby, one of the best (simple) purchases ever.
