Hello Jake.

Sorry if your email possibly got spam filtered and no reply? Right now I believe I'm the only one shipping these. Just sent an order to Australia today in fact. We are out of 2 blocks but still have some 0 blocks. Over built the 0 blocks and are running them down so likely in a couple of weeks we should have both in stock again.

Thanks..
Kevin

Just got myself a second hand tc6 to have a go with.

During my first race meeting I broke the L shaped lipo retainer.

Does anyone make alloy retainers with a Velcro strap??

Saw some X-rays with this system fitted

Hi Beth,

We have an order in for the chassis to arrive late next week. I'll be putting the chassis into the eStore next week as soon as the chassis arrive.

Cheers Ren

We have quite a few guys running these servo mounts around the world. Don't know if they will post in these forums.

What it will do for your steering is make it more responsive and predictable because the left side of your chassis is not locked down with two servo posts from a servo to prevent it from flexing naturally. Also the servo mount should also work on the new 6.1 worlds narrow chassis.

The floating servo system is working so well, other manufacturers like Yokomo, X Ray are including it now in their latest kits. You will probably see everyone else go that route including AE.

Today I took my car to a paved outdoor track in goldsboro to finally test the car and get some practice in. But since summer ended everyone is racing on the indoor track, so the outdoor track hasnt been used, cleaned or prepped for a while. I swept it best I could and removed most the debris but couldnt get everything. The indoor track was configured for an oval race they have tomorrow. So I had to use the outdoor track.

Traction was a issue. Im not sure if it was the track fully, the car or both. I struggled to get traction and make the car hook. It slid around and drifted, which looked good at the times I had it controlled and could correct it. But other times I spun or smacked the wall. Unfortunately some sections of the track are lined with wood. So my new body is a bit bruised. Luckily I walked away with only a bruised body and a cracked rim. The car suffered no real damage. I had a blast though and it was a good time. I cant complain.

Now for the questions. Is this car naturally tail happy or was it the track surface and my choice of tire? I know how hard the pavement can be on tires so I opted for a hard compound rubber, thinking about wear and endurance. A softer tire would of helped but I dont think it would of fully fixed the problem. Does the tc6 have a tendency to step out and get sideways? If so, will changing rear toe in help much?

Rosewood?

If YES... come on out Sunday for some TC racing on the rug. Every Saturday is oval and every other Sunday is Road Course and this Sunday is one of them.

Yeah. I would like too. Problem is Im in wilmington. Its a nice track but wish something was a little closer. I dont want to drive 2 hrs everytime I want to run the TC. We had a local road track but it closed, everything else in my area is offroad shortcourse or 8th scale buggy.

But I do plan to return for some more practice. You run there often?

I use a Velcro strap which fits the standard battery brace, and it works great, no more messing around with silicone tape.

You can buy the associated battery brace for $4 and a Velcro strap for $2 :
