What RSD shock springs should i run on a medium traction track with my TC6.1 worlds kit, I have AE springs but heard that's RSD springs are more consistent, I don't need the harder springs just want like two sets that work. I plan on running RSD pistons, o-rings, bladders, TLR 40wt in front and 35wt in back.

Thumbs up

With that setup, I run the RSD silvers all around but when the grip comes up, I run the green front / silver rear...... Don't change anything else and go from there..... Good luck!..... All of the RSD stuff is awesome.....

New plastic suspension parts, new axles, bigger axle bearings, a new anti-rollbar design, the use of the turnbuckle eyelets for the shocks, a geardiff in the rear and a non slipper spool in front and some more minor changes.
The WC then also comes with a new chassis and new shocktowers, changed upper bulkhead design for vertical ballstuds.

I've got a TC6 question for y'all. I run my TC6 in a local USGT class (21.5, treaded tires, etc.) and it's doing something rather odd. I bought the car from a local and it was pretty well set up and I was instantly competitive on our low/med grip asphalt track. However, as the weeks wore on, the rear of the car would start getting looser and looser. For the most part, the car was worst on corner entry. The back end would just come around and it was very unpredictable. Over time I was softening the rear suspension, adding rear toe, messing with droop, etc. in an effort to settle the car down. I had limited success and performance continued to suffer each week.

I rebuilt the entire car when its performance degraded to the point where I could no longer drive it competitively. This time I used a setup from the AE archives. Ultimately, there weren't a ton of changes made to the setup, but I went through the entire car during the rebuild. The car was on rails once again!

However, the car has now been on a slippery slope again. The rear has gotten loose on corner entry again and it's now to the point of being barely driveable once more. This has happened over the course of approximately 8-10 race days and it's quite frustrating.

I'm pretty diligent about making sure things are well maintained on my cars. And FWIW, my TC6 that I run in VTA has not had this problem. It's been pretty consistent. Is there some common issue with TC6s that can cause this that I may be overlooking? Generally speaking, the only slop on my car is where the hub carriers slide a bit on the outer hinge pin, but it's not bad. And both my VTA and USGT have similar amounts of play so I don't think that's the culprit, but who knows?

Anyway, sorry for the novel, but hopefully someone here can shed some light on this problem. I thought it might just be related to tire wear, but my VTA runs very consistent even as the tires wear so I don't suspect that's the problem, either.

Any help would be much appreciated!
