Some guys have good luck with the RSD and Exotek setups. These would probably be a good thing to try once you have reached your maximum potential with the stock setup. But even so I am not sure if you will gain any speed.

The forward hole position in the stock car creates geometry that is very close to dual bell cranks.

Yes. This car is the car I used Saturday at the RROC using this setup:

For Sunday I ran a different car which was basically the same setup expect with all suspension mounts moved to to the lower hole and the inner ball stud washers front and rear removed.

planning to buy another chassis as I broke the old one in a big accident. Should I go for the WC chassis or stick to the old chassis? What is the different between the old chassis and the WC chassis?

The W.C. is more narrow and a little thicker. Together with a cut standard topdeck it made my TC6 better.

the World chassis is narrower and is 2.25mm thick !

The stock chassis is 2.0 and wider. One thing we have been playing with si using the old chassis narrowed down to 88mm (96mm is stock) and it seems to work good and flex a bit more than WC chassis.

If I was to get a new chassis and dont want to do anything I would get the WC chassis, it seemed to be great on both carpet and asphalt.

The WC chassis is narrower and slightly thicker than the standard chassis so the flex is about the same but with the benefits of the narrower chassis (less dragging at high speed).

if you are buying a new chassis, I would go with the WC.

Rick is definitely a cool guy.

It is great to see Rick/AE supporting the aftermarket guys, since the objective is to advance the TC6 as much as possible.

Good to see YoDog take off on his venture into upgrades. We had a similar servo mount with a servo saver horn, but after seeing yours, we won't release ours out of respect.

But will be releasing shortly a rack steering system for the TC6 which we are still testing so TC6 owners can have even more upgrade choices.

What are spare parts I should keep in stock for the TC6.1 Worlds? I should have it by Tuesday and spending some time this weekend ordering, tools, radio, setup station and everything that is needed. So a list of spares would be great.

Thanks in advance

Not much, the car is pretty solid. Just keep plastic out drives and blades if you run spool all the time and some C Hubs.

CVA blades are a must if you run the spool. Its the ONLY thing that broke on either of the worlds cars I have owned. But have seen others break swing arms and C hubs. So those might be a good idea to have on hand.

Finally did some practice laps in the car today. Tires still aren't broken in but the car feels very stable and has a good amount of roll. I think i already like it more than my xray t4.

Post Blinky esc

Guys,

My club is starting a 10.5 blinky class. Currently I have a Speed Passion GT2.1 and a Tekin RS on the shelf. Trying to decide what esc to run? The esc that is not chosen will go in my SC10 for 17.5 blinky.
Thanks!

Default Short springs

It may be worth considering using Losi JRXS springs if TC6 owners are looking for low-profile springs like those made by RSD. I had some lying around and they work great.
