It's not a hair piece, it's what is left of his dinner he killed himself a couple of hours earlier.

So, I'm looking at the RSD6 conversion kits again for my TC6.1 WC. There is the 2.0mm chassis and the 2.5mm chassis. Which one should I choose and why?

I am racing on medium grip carpet with foam tires. We usually have a straight away, but we also have some tight turns as well. The track is different every week. Thoughts?

EDIT: I just noticed the RSD6.2 Evo kit. I definitely like the steering servo setup better. I'm not sure about the battery mounting though. Can I still use my RSD battery hold down system that I bought for the kit chassis?

They have 3 versions.

1. 2.0 kit
2. 2.5 kit
3. New kit without the center holes and a one piece servo arm.

Im not an expert on this but I opted for the 2.5mm chassis. It was a big improvement along with the dual steering cranks compared to the wet noodle stock tc6 chassis. Car is way planted now.also the slightly thicker the less chance of snapping it? Seen a few one snap the rear section but not on tc6 cars

Take a look at exotek kit as well, believe they come with the hinge holders

Thanks for the quick reply! It looks like the new kit has a 2.25mm chassis. What do you mean by no center holes and what would the advantage be?

Hey fellas, I picked up the floating servo mount from Reflex racing. Where is the hole that need to be drilled on my worlds chassis?

It's not there yet because you haven't drilled it! Sorry I'm so useless.

What capacity or weight battery packs should I be using to have good left to right balance?

I've got 5200mah packs and 6600mah packs, even some 4200mah shorty packs too.

Is this something to worry about? I want to buy new packs so I need to figure out what a good capacity or weight to shoot for is.

That all depends on how much your electronics weigh.
Put in your 5200 and see if the car is a little heavy on the electronics side or not.
Add weight on the battery side to make it balanced and then weigh the pack and weights together to see what to shoot for. If the battery side is heavy at first, use a lighter pack and add weight to make it balanced. And so on...
Now depending on what class you are running will determine capacity and "C" rating requirements.

You can still use your battery hold down system, however you must purchase part no RSD030-2 separately. These are the carbon fiber battery braces for the chassis. Without them, you must use tape to keep your battery in place.

The new chassis is more than just a different thickness. It has much different flex characteristics and there are slight changes to geometry.

For one, the steering system was moved back 1mm. This allows to run a shorter front wheelbase to gain steering on the car and use more ackerman (less shims) to gain corner speed. The battery is also able to move furter back and further forward to further improve chassis balance adjustment.

There are balance holes on the chassis and less cutouts at the bottom for better high speed stability. The bulkhead openings are also smaller and the standard TC6 steering system is also usable now.

All of the items are further refinements of the first generation chassis. Personally I feel like the car is more versatile. It can be tuned for more flex or less flex. I also think it has more steering. The flex was tuned to provide this.

Last night when we ran at our local track I got to run a production sample and my car was far superior to everyone elses. I usually am about 1-2 tenths quicker than the second fastest guy (many times the same fast lap) at our local track. Last night, I was about 4-5 tenths quicker. The grip was medium. Everyone was sliding. Except for me :P

I'v gotten fairly desperate for rear grip in my TC6 so in addition to the 1 degree rear toe insert I put an offset arm mount on the back of the rear arm. It looks like a lot of toe, does anybody know how much that really is?
