Now as promised the low budget lcg conversation for the TC6 that enables the use of EuroGT and Tamiya IFS bodies.
1. First of all you need 2mm shims, some square centimeters carbonfiber or similar, two servo mounts and a Dremel.
2. Take your TC6 and remove the diff clamps, shocktower, shocks, suspension arms, diff, topdeck and belt (depending on which of the above mentioned body you want to use do everything for the rear also!).
3. Take your Dremel and remove the inner stiffener next to the shock of the suspension arm. This will give space for the lay down shocks later.
As we are at it make inline slits on the bulkheads between the screwholes for the topeck. Check with your favourite anti-roll-bar if it is fully sunk in. Because of the angled shocks we have to attach the anti-roll-bar inward.
4. Now as the Dremel gets warm put it away and let it cool. Take a ruler, a pen and a little of your cfk and build yourself a horseshoe formed upper suspension link mount. This is the most difficult part as you have to take a lot of measurements (pm me for the dimensions). If you like long links in front you can skip this part!
5. This point is to choose for everyone: Cut off the two front holes of the top deck (cutting them will lower the suspension link mount). Make sure you don't cut too short as you need the topdeck to hold the anti-roll-bar in place.
6. Do a little cfk plate with two 3mm holes (28mm apart) and remove a little material so that the front diff fits underneath it (check how much after installing the servo mounts.
What you have as result for all the "hard" work:
OK, this was some work already, but you can skip some of it depending on how much functionality you want. If you came that far and are still at it then you can enjoy the fun part now: Installing all parts
7. Start with the topdeck and the anti-roll-bars (lenghten the ballcup parts installed on the suspension arm until it stands vertical).
8. Install the horseshoe looking plate for the linkage (add the ballstuds now at this point with your favourite geometry).
9. Take diffcams and cut off the upper lip so that it has a horizontal upper look (see pic step 4).
10. Install Diff and cams.
11. Put the 2mm shims underneath the servomounts and install both on the bulkhead. They will hold the diffcam in its place.
12. Take a long buttonheadscrew and twist it through the upper shock mounts. Take the little plate from step 6 and push the screw through it. Now attach everything on the servomount. Do the same for the other side.
And thats it basically. I admit I just wrote it down as if it is nothing, which is not true. For a quality (looking) result you need to work with precision. But everyone can do it and as you can see the chassis can be used with GT bodies (and/or lcg) easily without sacrificing any of its function.
I hope you enjoyed this.
