Are you just proud of your car, or want to sell it, or want to show us that this body fits the TC6, or what?

OK! Enjoy it!

I love my "old" TC6, but sometimes the productionquality is not nice. Just had to find out why my car has asymetrical toe at the rear when using the same shims on both sides. In conclusion I found out that the bulkheads are not parallel to the driving direction because of the holes in the chassis... Funny is that there is no tweak because the holes for the topplate fit!

Other than that the car is awesome and fast!

You are funny! Short them so that you have 4-5 holes left and add them to your car (the front ones need no shortening but add them also). Then place the body that it fits to your actual trim and markthe posts with an edding. Here every millimeter counts. It is not enough to say between trunk and and rear window...

It is definitely a good tuning option.
AE has their own conversion right?

Am I the only one that didnt get the memo that .1 rear arms are slightly longer that the regualr 6 arms? I finished updating my car to .1 plastic and as soon as I finished the rear end and re adjusted everything I saw that the dogbones are barely in the diff yokes. i suppose its ok since my car will be "tek'd" later on this week so I get to narrow it back up

In the rear I would recommend using standard mounts in the front with 0.5 or 1.0 mm shims. For the rear use the offset mounts and shim for the desired amount of toe in.

Does anyone know if Exotek did any testing and what they found?

Does anyone have an opinion as to what this conversion might achieve?
