zeppin 1.8mm for more grip overall in any case.

with that topdeck (front 4x screws, rear end only 4 screws, no screw on shaft blocks) it drive very easy and nice.


I have tested normal std top deck with removed materials like yokomo or now zeppin and it was also better.

STD topdeck only for very big grip track, but then I will also put zeppin topdeck and only add two screws on shaft blocks and play with other setup things.



Whish you the best!

I am having a really tough time getting these shocks set right. I have the RSD shock bladders and Orings in them and just rebuilt them and they all have a squeeky sound them like their is air in the shocks. Is anyone else having the same problem? I have been trying different techniques and nothing seems to work.

Perhaps what you are hearing is the machine lines inside the shock bodies rubbing against the pistons. The AE bodies are not polished therefore can make a sound until broken in.

Hey guys, just got a TC6 in a trade, will be running it for VTA. Can anyone tell me what the differences are between it and the TC6.1? Ill be reading up and doing my research, but I have a few questions. I didn't get any of the adjustment parts, but did get a LOT of spares.

I noticed the toe and wheelbase is adjusted using spacers. My car currently has some plastic pieces for this, anyone got any recommendations for some aluminum blue ones? I have some red ones from my photon I can use until I get some blue ones that match.

Are there different battery mounting pieces to eliminate the battery from moving sideways? There is currently about 4mm gap where the battery can move left to right.

What are the recommended mods for this chassis? Every chassis has the mods that people figure out.

Again, ill be doing my research on this chassis, just figured someone might be nice enough to give me a heads up early ( this is a LONG thread). I just got it home, so I've got a lot of reading to do Thanks for any heads ups!

Since I drilled vent holes in the shock caps I sometimes get some whistle and I'm positve there is are no air in the shocks. I think they are shock slide whistles now.
