no more shifting of the suspension blocks for 1. and id assume more traction overall as the chassis looks liek its going to flex more.

How long are you guys building your TC6.1 shocks?
Can someone measure the bottom of their shock body to the tip if the ball joint.

Thanks in advance.

Im thinking of getting a TC6.1, I race modified. What parts do I need except the car to stay competitive? Do the car have enough steering with a modified motor? I used to race a Corally and that car was quite a handful to drive in modified with a constant on-power push and lack of low speed steering....

I think the car is very good as is out of the box in mod. You may want the vertical ballstud bulkhead caps, swaybar set, and a spring set to give yourself tuning options, but there are no real "mandatory parts" you need to make the car be competitive.

I don't know of any after market motor mount. Also never anybody ever complained about it in this thread. Do you have to use regulated Spur/Pinion sizes? How come you don't get it set properly?

My friend, just cut off some material from silvercan busing case, I did it before for HPI saturn 20/27T engines.

Just use file

Wish you good luck!

I have a 27T brushed on one of mine and have no problems adjusting for mesh. What Spur are you using? You might have problems with the 80T spur. I have the 72 on mine and dont have any problems getting it to mess with the range of pinions I mess with, arount a 36.

The bushing case on the motor sits on the oval part of the mount and the holes do not line up for the motor screws.

I'm using the 80-87 with 31 pinion as that's what I was told for fdr

I grinded the motor mount aj the bushing case drops more but still needs more

I had a 17.5 in it before with 94-47 64 pitch but I wanted 48 as the track doesnt get swept and I dont want to be changing them often as 48 pitch

Which holes are you trying to hit? I have mine in the forward hole and the bottom hole. I dont remember if that location raises the motor up a bit or not. Our 27T class uses the Axial 27T as the spec motor. I am not sure if there is a size difference in the shaft bushing.

I'll be at the track tonight and I'll be happy to help out.
Using 2 screws is probably the way to go and I'd have to say that you will want to use a smaller spur gear to get the right spacing. What FDR is suggested?
We can always come up with a different combination that will both fit and give you the FDR you are looking for.
I have a bunch of 48 pitch stuff so I think we can find the right combo.

Anyone running the one-way spool? I'm running on high grip carpet and could use a little more steering while on the brakes, do you guys think it's worth trying?
Thanks
