Besides that, I've gone trough a pair of belts and some blades, so this is basically what I would consider having at hand, maybe add some spare bearings in case you loose them or they seize when you break the knuckles.

As for upgrades, the RSD shock bladders are a must. They make the whole shock building process a lot easier. I can get zero rebound with ease, these are a great improvement over stock. I would also give their shock pistons a try. Also their springs are great match for the car. Although the car performs great out of the box, these are great tuning options that should get you going around the track easier.

Got a couple races on the 6.1 and am really liking the higher roll centers.. New lid in from Mike is really pretty cool also.

when you say "higher roll center" do you mean mounting the camber links higher on the shock towers?

Default Modified Chassis

I used to race on road glow touring back in the mid 90's but got out of it and am in the process of getting back in and running electric touring; I have decided on the TC6.

Like my old car I had, I wound up spending close to $1,000 extra on after market parts and hop ups in order to compete at local tracks here in Houston.

I have noticed that there are some after market chassis, shock mods, body stiffeners, etc that one can buy to increase performance.

Question: if I plain to get back into racing like in the past, are these extra parts advisable?

A stock TC6 or 6.1 will be plenty competitive here in Houston out of the box. The only musts that I would advise for is a spring set, a fan for your motor and some RSD bladders. Other items are tuning options but not a total must have.

If you need some help with your TC6 and want to see your options, see me at M&m tonight or possibly Mike's this weekend. I will be more that glad to help.

If you use the V3 position it extends the link pretty far. I put longer links on mine just to be safe. That way you don't run the risk of them stripping themselves out during an impact.
