Thanks.
This was only the case on the TC6, it changes the bumpsteer.
On the 6.1 we only run them normal.

You know us non team drivers need to help ourselves
I'll be there as well with my TC6.1, DarkSide runs Box Stock TC6 setup in his vta and tc. It does not work as well for me, as it does for him.

But if I find some thing I think works, I will post it.

Default Where can I find the TC6.1 upgrade kit?

I recently traded for a TC6 that needs some TLC and wanted to find an upgrade kit to make it an TC6.1, can't find the upgrade kit any where though.

There is no actual upgrade kit , would have to buy the parts individually . I believe a few pages back someone listed the parts needed .

lol...very true, and its works very well for me...on both TC6's...Im running manual build setup, with minor changes such as camber, depend on traction. Ive run this setup all year and on several different tracks, and have racked up my share of wins.

I think the original setup is a very good starting point and then make small adjustments for your driving style...

Ill post my complete setup for the current track layout this weekend

Your looking for as little rebound as possible. Drill a small hole in the shock caps. Make sure to push the piston 3/4 towards the top before you bleed the shock with the bladder.

Rebound can be %100 to %0, its just what you like. I run %25 rebound, and this video shows a easy way to set it.
