The one way is really only useful on large flowing tracks. Carpet track are typically small and technical. If you need more steering under braking, try a diff up front and make adjustments in your set up to get more weight transfer to the front. ie, more droop in the rear or slightly stiffer rear springs. There are plenty of adjustment on these cars to get it where you want it. It's all about weight transfer.
A little toe out in the front can help with initial turn in as well.

The motor only has 2 holes for te motor mount screws. They don't line up either needs to drop about 1mm lower which is why I grinded the motor mount oval part down so it lowers the motor, but I tried spacing the bushing hump out of the mount but it puts the motor 1 inch hanging out pass te chassis edge and it leaves the motor shaft short to reach the spur. So I flipped the pinion and put the set screw neck towards the motor side and now the pinion neck hits the motor mount like the motor did before. The motor is a 27t tamiya silver can.

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.

Thanks for the offer but I won't go race. Last time I got there and had to do some wrenching it was not fun in a 105 temp pitting on a 120 pavement. I just got really frustrated that I blew like 400 to run gt3 and didn't even make it, have fun there

Thanks for the offer maybe next time

Oh I was told to run 4-4.3 in 17.5 and brushed motor in the 5.6
Some tell me to run 5.5 in 17.5 and other 3.8 Yada Yada I don't know which one to listen to as one tells me he's bsing me and the other one does as well.

The mounting hole centres should be the same on the silvercan as on a brushless motor. It should screw into the same slots as normal.

The problem is the oversized front bushing on the silvercan.

What you can do is dremel the motor mount to make the hole for the bushing bigger. Better still, find someone with a mill to do the job more precisely.

Ok, you have asked the same question several times already. Put whatever the lowest TURN motor Novak makes in your car and go have fun.

Also, this thread is about the TC-6. If you have specific questions about motors or electronics there are other threads dedicated to those subjects where you might be able to get a quicker answer. Good luck.

Nice maiden voyage with the 6.1 Saturday. First run and a win. Can't get better than that.

I searched online, read the charts and did the math. I cant believe the 17.5(w/timing) needs a gearing so high. So now Im debating if I should get a 72, 75, or 77 spur. That would allow me to gear the motor for 3.5-4.0
On a smooth paved 220x125 asphalt race track in 17.5 blinky class, I have my FDR at 3.19 (64pitch gears). That's with a Revtech 17.5 (12.5 HT rotor), timing on the motor 1 mark before max, high speed fan, temps in the lower 140* on 95* day.
