Car is easy to drive and smooth, however it doesn't have the aggression for attacks.
Front pushes out upon deceleration to corner entry.
Tire traction doesn't seem to be problem as I am traction rolling if I clip a corner wrongly.

Where can i start to induce stronger steering authority in corner entry?
Also try putty on the front diff if you're playing on high traction track.
Good luck!

Apparently the Kimbrough brand spur gears will fit in the TC6?

Is a 108 64 pitch too big to fit in the chassis. Looking to gear initially in the 4.0 to 3.8 range.
Use a 96t 64p spur in 17.5 no boost. This will give you a wide gearing and fitment range. The set you are proposing may not actually fit. Someone on here posted a total tooth range that will fit the TC6.

Personally, I would just use the stock spring collar. I see nothing wrong with the plastic ones.
Thanks for the info. There's nothing wrong with the stock ones, just liked the look of the aluminum and they were only $6.50. I'll go back to stock.

HPI offers several different styles of wheels with the D-compound tires mounted.

At our track we can only run Tires 4793 front and 4797 Rear with stock inserts.

Rims 3805 through 3814, 3815 through 3822, 3854 through 3860, 33472 and 33473, 33474 and 33475.

And I have found no pre-mounts for them. I wish I could, as gluing these tires is not the easiest thing to do.

TC6Newbie - From my latest experience, I would suggest these as essential:
Battery brace
Blades
C Hubs
Steering arms
Cups (on the end of each side of the diff/spool)

Also might consider spare shock caps, belts, CV axles. The car is pretty durable though.

With my latest race day I had a hard impact that yanked the screws out of the battery brace. Those little screws are hard to find and cheap (part no 31540) so you might grab some of those too.

Hope that helps.

Guys - need a quick answer. I accidentally ordered a Factory Team rear ball diff for a TC5 (part no 31182) instead of a ball diff kit for the TC6.1 (part 31336). Any chance it will work? I'm driving a TC6.1 WC kit, and was going to replace the gear diff with a ball in the rear. Thanks for any input.

The tc5 diff outdrives are longer than the tc6s. so they will not work

Darn it - I was afraid of that. Appreciate the input. Hopefully I can return the wrong one without too much hassle..

Trust me, you want to keep that gear diff in there anyway. If anything you would want the ball diff in the front.

Rufus2010 - the combination you are proposing won't fit. I'm running a 64p, 96t spur and a 52t pinion, and I'm just about maxed out. I might be able to squeeze a 53 on there, but not sure. Hope that helps.

Mark G,

Any reason you are swapping out the rear gear diff to a ball diff, I am in the process of building and was surprised it came with a gear diff. Was thinking about the swapping them out but figure I would give it a try first.

Both diffs from AE are great. It is also never bad to have a second non-spool-diff for low grip conditions/rain.

I even bought a one way to be prepared for everything and didn't regret it
