Such a beauty! The Yokomo mount looks as if it was made for the TC6

Just the wiring could be a little more efficient

Yes the servo mount is beautiful.
The esc cables must be shortened and arranged together better in this new set-up.

I have the feeling if I roll it manually it is fine, but as far as I drive the car goes slightly to the right and I need to trim to the left. I tried already to change the tires from left to right and placed the accu from left to right but still the same effect. Hope somebody know why.

Thanks in advance
Is this maybe caused by the diff? or do you have a similar behaviour?

Default steering binding

I need some help...when tightening the camber ball link on the steering block, it tends to bind until I loosen it off a bit. Is it not supposed to be tight or am I missing something?

From my experience it sounds like the turnbuckle threads are pushing into the inside of the eyelit from either too short of camber link or too long of a turnbuckle? Check to see if you've got the right turnbuckle for the right link.

No that's fine. The steering block binds when steering until I back off the ball itself. Does that make sense? lol.

If you have the 6.1 make sure that the chub inserts are the same # and oriented correctly. Use a long(silver) ball stud and not a black one. The only other thing is that there is some problem with the top hat bushing. That bushing has to get clamped down against the steering block/knuckle. That bushing is installed from the inside of the chub. Make sure that it the flange portion is against the steering knuckle and there is no flashing/debris that locks it to the chub when tightening the ball stud.

Somebody in an earlier post said that the bushing was a little too short and had associated replace them. You can always buy a pack of spare bushings as they are nearly impossible to find on the track if you lose one. Make sure you install them in the proper direction and it couldn't hurt to sand the "c" hub a little bit to be sure there are no burrs causing a bad fit.
Oh yeah, most setup have a 1mm shim under the ball stud, the threads may be a tiny bit long if no shim is used.

So while repairing a broken C-hub I noticed that with the bushings both inserted number side up in the C-hub, it looks like they are at zero degrees of caster. The manual is non-specific and I read it as both bushings should have the number facing up.

Or should the front bushing be number side up and the rear bushing number side down?

Thanks,
Kane

Default Bearings

How often should the bearings need to be replaced in the TC6.1?

Front insert number up, rear number down. If you look at the back of the inserts closely, they interlock... they don't actually fit in the block if both numbers are up, unless you jam them.
