I think the manual is not correct with green / silver - all look the same only blank silver.
It seems they are a bit soft on my indoor carpet track.
Do you recomment to order the spring set AE offers - to play arround

There are other springs from Christian on this website as well. Get them all.

The diff halves are not warped or deformed in any way.

I think i fixed the diff.
I opened it, removed the planetary gears and closed it. The diff was perfectly sealed.
I reopend it, installed the planetary gears and closed it. Now the diff is sealed, much better than before.
Probably the gaskets had to soften up a bit before letting the diff close propertly.

Have you changed tires? One might be separating from the rim. Make sure all 4 shocks feel the same and check for binding when you compress each corner.
Make sure all screws are tight. One last thing is make sure you don't have a bad wheel bearing. All these things can cause your problem without obvious crash related damage. Oh yeah, make sure your droop is equall from right to left or the chassis has tweaked.

The gears might not have been meshed with each other as well. I tend to rotate the out drives slightly while closing the two halves to be sure they align properly.

The 6.1 team kit comes with silver springs for all 4 corners. I would recommend the Reflex spring set. I also found that the K Factory springs for the TM E4 fit as well. They have a few different sets.

Nice paint work. It looks a lot like the one in RCCA August 2012.

Thanks. I saw the car in RCCA and loved the paint job. I'm sure mine is nowhere near the quality paint job of that car, and not trying to take anything away from it. Just loved the colors and scheme. I was already using the same colors as they are easy to see, but my next will be different.
My hat is off to the driver and painter...

I noticed that when I'm on the throttle and turning the car full right or full left, the wheels vibrate like crazy. I'm guessing this is the drive joints. Is this what the dual cardan joint takes care of for me? If I order the joints from Reflex Racing, what else is there that I will need?

Yes if you running the std kit CVD's and a spool upfront that is normal, fitting teh DCJ's will eliminate that

Does anyone run the shocks (apart from springs) as per manual? I built my car only last week and have found the shocks really painful to use. I don't mean to be negative, but I had some serious stiction straight away. I'm guessing that the 2 hole pistons are for carpet. Like most others I have read, I found it almost impossible to get zero rebound and there's no bleed holes on the shock caps... I feel like such a noob with these shocks! What's the secret? I love the car, just struggling a little with the suspension. I have bought the rsd options - hopefully that will help. I have drilled holes in the shock caps, replaced pistons, replaced o rings and bladders. Please let me know if I'm missing something. Thanks in advance.

Good morning guys - after a long hiatus from driving, I took the plunge and ordered a 6.1 Worlds kit to get back into TC. I'll be running on med grip, med size asphalt track. Blinky 17.5 to start. Can anyone point me to a setup to use during the build to get me started? There are some on the AE site - any of those a good start?

Thanks for any info. Excited about running TC again. Take care.

Try the Mike Haynes setup to start out with. Everyone seems to think it's a good starting point.
