Are the TC6 c-hubs a direct replacement fit on a TC6.1? Also are they a bit stronger than the 6.1 version?

Some say they are weaker? Tc6 have a better mold but I have snapped 2 rather very easy while rubbing a pipe.

A variant of Juho Levanen's ETS Round 1 setup (on the AE site). It drives flatter off center, carves into turns smoothly, lots of corner speed and predictable even as the traction comes up. It's definitely one of my favorites. I ran 50W diff oil instead of 2K, since we don't have super high grip, and was up .2mm on ride height all around to get it just over 5mm.

Yes, they're a direct fit... may need to file it just slightly if it's not rotating freely in the arm or if the steering knuckle isn't free. People do run them, but I prefer the 6.1 version. I run it with a set screw in the bottom (drill a hole) to pin the hinge pin and tighten it up. It also has a larger driveshaft opening if you want to try DCJs.

New 6.1 owner -- what affect does running heavier or lighter oil in the gear diff have ? We run foam tires on carpet -- not high bite usually.

Thx

In my experience they are a little stronger. Scratching pipes and boards is one of the most hard hits you can have. Most times you are accelerating out of the corner when you hit the board with full torque, or a high speeds. The axle then hits the board. Plastic and wood is soft. The axle with its thread penetrates the surface and gets stuck until the full force of the accelerated weight pulls the car out of it with a strong momentum... Even with aluminiumboards the chub has to withstand the brutal impact.

Unfortunately the TC6 chubs create more slackness than the TC6.1 hubs. I ordered aluminium hubs from Zeppin. They should be there in a week. I will report how they perform

A lighter diff oil allows the rear tires to work more independently and is generally smoother into the corner and on power. The rear end follows the front more. With heavier oil the rear end rotates more in corners, both off power and on power coming out of it.

That's to a point... diff oil has to match traction conditions. Too light an oil in higher traction conditions will cause it to diff out and be unstable, and going to heavier oil in that case will lock the rear end in. The TC6.1 diff uses lighter oils than most other diffs to get the same feel. Most setups call for 30-50W.

I just built my TC 6.1 do I need to put the sway bars in? Does it make that much of a difference?

It makes a difference. The advantage depends on the grip level of the track and can make up to 4 tenth on a 10s lap on high grip carpet (my personal experience).
Try out which spring/anti roll bar wire combination works best on your track.
You can also use them to easily adjust the carbalance for different conditions/tracks.

Ok guys, I need your help. I am getting a TC6.1 Worlds Car very soon. I will be running in the 17.5t blinky class at out local club. The track is approx 60x60 ozite with med to high grip. My question is, What body do you guys recommend? I am torn between the Protoform MazdaSpeed 6 and the LTC-R. My tires will be Sweeps, most likely the EXP EVO 30's. This is my first time running TC rubber tire.
I currently run a TC6.1 FT in VTA and love the car. There are way too many pages to read through and yes I have used the search button on RC Tech it self about the differences between the TC bodies.
Thanks for your help.

I have not run much onroad but I know barry baker and from what he tells me the LTC-R is more aggressive than the mazda speed 6. And on carpet always get the light weight version. If i'm wrong please correct me.

Hi,
I have been looking at the camber link positions used with the vertical mounts. Could someone please tell me the difference between the V3 and V3A positions.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Hmm, light bulb moment! just realised what the answer was

Default Mystery Belt Tensioner???

I was online, recently, and saw this belt tensioner, that, is installed on the lower chassis and looks like it doubles as a center battery stop. Just can't remember where I saw it or who makes it. Any help guys???
