What is a good combination of 48t pinions using the 72 spur?
Is there advantages to running 48t vs 64t pinions?
What are you guys doing to hold the battery in place?

What is a good combination of 48t pinions using the 72 spur? 32,33,34,35, 36

Is there advantages to running 48t vs 64t pinions? 48P is easier to mesh and more durable because teeth are bigger. 64P has more options in gear ratio, and are quieter and smoother(ish).

What are you guys doing to hold the battery in place? Battery Tape. I used to use velco, but unless you NEVER hit anything, it wont hold it tight enough. If you crank it hard enough so that it doesnt move, you have now take flex out of the chassis. And if you dont crank it hard enough, you wil break the plastic tabs that hold the battery. Dont ask how I know. I think the RSD may be in my future though.

I can recommend the reflex battery hold down system. Works very good. I used it in some races already and I am glad that I bought it. It is one of the "inventions" which make the whole maintenance stuff easier and give you more time to concentrate and/or just enjoy the hobby!

Is the quality and fit/finish better than that of the Xray? I don't believe it is, but I have owned about a half dozen Xray touring cars over the years and none of them handle like the TC6.1.

When I put my TC6.1 down on the track for the first time this year after a long off road season and a two year absence from on road, I could easily say within 2 laps that it was the best touring car I have ever driven. When I first ran a T3'11 a couple of years ago, it was awful out of the box and even after a number of changes it never really did get to the level I wanted it to.

My only two complaints about the TC6.1:

1) The hex of the flat head screws are a little small making the 2mm hex wrench a tight fit (aftermarket screws are cheap).

2) The turnbuckle eyelets are fairly tight when installed even with some plier squeezing efforts (they do loosen up with time).

My unbiased opinion? Buy the TC6.1, you will not be disappointed. I cannot guarantee the same for the T4.

Thanks for the replys, think I'll order a tc6.1 wc

4. order spurs, maybe a few spare, shims, Chubs, steering knuckles, and arms..
car is pretty solid doesnt break much.
Thanks
Do you have any experience with the HW escs. Can't find any comparisons.
Juststock 60a BEC 6v $49
Extreme stock 60a BEC 6v $67
Xerun 60a BEC 5.75v $62
Ezrun 60a BEC 6v $49

Did anyone who ordered a FT kit on sale get a shipping notice yet? I ordered on Monday and haven't seen anything yet.
