A being the lower hole and B the top. For more forward traction, going straight would 0 arm mounts or #3 arm mounts be better. Id like to get one of those servo mounts from you YoDog

Shoot me a pm for the mount and I'll hook you up.
Since you are dealing with a road car that was designed for cornering, straight line performance is not its original intent. Not to say that it doesn't go straight well, it's just not designed exclusively for it like a drag car.
Roll center adjustability is more relative to turning from side to side but is still somewhat important for straight runs as well. It would be best to stick with the stock setup which has a fairly low roll center (more grip) and possibly go with reduced toe in for the rear (1* or 2*) should be good and no toe out in the front.
Use the 2 or 3 dot arm mounts in the bottom holes for starters. This will allow the chassis to be more compliant from side to side, giving you decent grip.

I take it that you just want to do speed runs for starters?
I can assure you that it will get old quickly then you will yearn for the road course. Lol

Oh yeah, I almost forgot... Use more caster in the front end as this should reduce initial turning response. I think AE only makes 4 and 6 degree C hubs.

First day of racing my TC6 was insanely fun in the mod class! I totally sucked and qualed in dead last but I still had a great time. My 5.5T motor was geared far too low as the motor came off the track at 120 following each round of racing. I think my car was going about 20mph slower than most other cars on the back straight, I will try to gear up next time and see if I can get my temps closer to 150.... good news is that the Goop glue held up just fine so far:



Special thanks to Tommy for giving me a long ball stud to fix my steering link to my servo horn!

Can anyone give me a ball park gearing for a 6.5T motor on a 100'x50' track?

Im already yearning for the road course. The closest track to me is Homestead. As you can tell im a newbie and really want to learn more about setting up the car properly. Also the worlds kit manual doesnt have the vertical ballstud bearing caps so my question is are the camber turnbuckles supposed to be the same length as the 6.1 car with ballstuds on the shock tower? Thanks again Yo Dog

Really? How well does that work for you. My car was tail happy out of the box, others mentioned that as well. I know there are many variables that could play a part there. Like tires and track conditions etc. Was just wondering.
