WOW! the servo saver cams are very popular.
Thanks to those who bought them. At this time they are sold out till I make the next batch. I will make twice as many next week but if you are in a hurry and you don't mind them being natural aluminum color, they will be ready to ship by Tuesday. I don't recall if I mentioned that you will need to grind off about 2.5mm of the threads off of the stock Associated short ball stud to allow for clearance of the top deck. see the picture below for an example.
I am working on a source for a ball stud that I can include with the cam at no additional cost. I would suggest picking up some of the Reflex Racing shorty aluminum ball studs from Cristian. they only need about 0.5mm removed and they are aluminum.

YoDog, are you going to make some YoDog Stickers for the Reedy? Remind me to hi-five you the next time I see you

Looking forward to the install, tonight!

Tomorrow will be the first running of my new TC 6.1 WC. I have it all set up per one of the setups posted by associated for medium traction asphalt. Figured this would be a good starting point.

Are there any crucial setup tips or recommendations that anyone can think of that I may want to implement before taking this thing out?

Don't worry my diff with 1000 CTS or DOT 2/3 not lose oil. The only precaution is grease the o-ring and diff. outdrive with Asso black grease and replaced, as I explained, the reds orings after 3/4 race. It's all.
The shim to be removed is the bigger in the photo
Enrico

Ps. Tell me if this tip it's ok .

I am running two Factory Team Tc6's, one in VTA and the other in in USGT. Both are on a rail and run awesome.

Default So nice driving this car:)

Some of you may know that just under a month ago I drove my friends tc6.1wc at NorCal....n loved it. I purchased everything brand spanking new. Plus the essentials: rsd shock setups, ceramic bearings, and titanium screws all around. Put in my electrics from my previous car. Today was the start of our onroad season with new track and all. Great turnout at NorCal hobbies today, beautiful weather, n the car was soooo easy to drive. Earned TQ, started 1st, n finished 1st Always fun when the car does what you want it to do! Great job team AE

Can't wait to put in the yodog floating servo soon on. Always looking to improve

I read this forum pretty much from front to back, n the knowledge on here is outstanding. Thanks a bunch for helping me be a happy racer

What setup are you guys using? I have been running this car on carpet for the past few months and have been struggling big time on a good set up. I can't seem to keep the back end planted. Not to mention I am going through blades in the front like no tomorrow. I am about ready to give up on this car.

I sent you a PM. I'm not really bothered about color.

I built the car from scratch using the manuals set up as far offsets on the arms from the chassis blocks, also on the steering crank too. I run on asphalt, so it's going to differ for you. But I used an entire huddy setup system in setting up my car. Ride height is 5mm all around. Camber in front is 2 degrees, 1.5 in the rear. Front tow is 1 degree out. Droop is 6mm in the front, and 5 in the rear. Again I ran rsd shocks setups (much smoother) all in the standard setup positions that are in the manual. Same with the sway bars. Hope this helps ya out. Many of the racers at NorCal rund tc6, X-ray, and other major brands. I'd talk to those who have your car there too. I'm sure it's gonna be different for carpet. Don't give up!

For ChadB
The most important thing in TC6 is to check the chassis tweak with a good set up tool, how the shock absorbers work in dry as in running order and ceck the rear diff. work.( see my tip above by Keven )
RSD upgrade give a good result in all round work (o-ring, piston, bladders); take a set up by Keven, Rick or Olly Jefferies depending on the track and condition, and now go faster and easy.
