Lipo NVISION 5500 - 90C 300 g
Body g 100
Sorex 36 g 120
Total weight 1420 g
Which is the weight of your cars, TC 6, TC6.1 and WC ready to run?
Other friends racers with XRay- Yokomo- Sakura add weight to achieve the minimum required. Any tips?

Aluminum/titanium screws can cut ~20g. Make sure your wires (power wires & servo wires) are as short as possible, this can be 10-20g if your wires are long. Make sure you have a light weight body, in protoform bodies the LW versions are about 20g lighter, and your car drives better too

I'm curious if someone could make a good recommendation for a starting point? The surface is low-med grip asphalt. I should also point out that I'm pretty happy with the handling of the car otherwise, but I wouldn't mind just a touch more turn-in.
Tommy, do you want to try my diff that already has the putty that I have in my box? That way you dont have to buy to test.

My TC6.1 is under the 1380 gram roar limit. I had to add 14g to get it over 1380g. I'm running a light weight body and a tekin rs pro. Everything else on my car is pretty normal. I even have a heatsink and 2 fans.

The TC6.1 is a heavy car. A lot of it has to do with the construction of the A Arms and suspension blocks. It will be very hard to get it down to 1350, but aside from the Screws and body, 13AWG wire is more than enough for your 13.5 motor and will drop some grams.

We sell aluminum Ball ends for the TC6 which are lighter than what AE offers and can add up to 5-10G of weight savings too.

Lastly, I remove the upper plastic bumper brace on my cars and use a CF brace from Tamiya or some washers to hold the Foam bumper in place. While this puts the front end of the chassis at a bit of a risk, it does shave about 8G.



All in all I have gotten my RSD6 to about 1355-1360G Ready to Race with a 4.5 Motor (heavier than stock). It's not easy, but it's doable.

Are you saying that 1000 is as thick/locked as putty?

I have putty now but really would like a fluid instead. The highest thing I currently have available would be 100,000.

Here is an exploded view of the servo mount.
They will be shipping as soon as the blocks come back from anodizing.

The small one is pretty hard to see...

A little less droop in the front can help too. Mainly on power...

Nope. Just saying you can play around with them and see what works best. Depending on the track, you'll differ as to which works best for you.

That's what I'm looking for. I've heard how bad it can be cleaning out clay so I'd prefer to start off with oils first.

Aaron, yes, I would like to take you up on your offer....preferably when we're not rained out!

I had some disappointment this last weekend with my 6.1 WE. Every single run that I did, I always came back in with at least one busted blade. I used up about every single blade I had in my box and wasn't sure if I was going to get through the entire weekend, then I would need to replace the outdrives on the spool because they would torn up as well. Does anyone else have these same problems I have? I have not had these issues with other older cars that I had which why I have some concerns.
