Anyone put the hpi falken body on their tc6? I'm wondering if it would fit and with what offsets.

Tested the BMW body today with a normal rear wing. Setup was my unchanged race setup that I use with a Mazda Moore Speed lightweight body. I was quite surprised about the performance. The car was in direct comparison just 4 tenth/lap slower on 14-15s lap. Now with that rear wing I had a little understeer. Other than that it behaved good and I could easily stay in a two tenth window for the whole run. What hurts the performance most is the weight and the height of the body I would say. With an adapted setup a reduce of that mentioned timegap is possible.





Of course the best was the look. It is awesome to see a scale body run around corners that fast. The design itself is an eyecandy and to see that the whole time you drive is pure joy. Even better was that I could totally match the times of the other clubmembers with their tc on track

Is that your track? I wish we had a scale track like that, I'm lucky to find a parking lot with cones or PVC pipe.

Did you try it with both arm mounts: standard and offset? If so, then maybe try #1 arm mounts.

I haven't found a need to go below the B arm mount position outdoors, yet. Where are you running the car? Is this for 17.5 or Mod? Have you tried #0 position B, yet?

It's for 17.5 at Wagner. Seems like no matter where I make adjustments, the car is on ice. If you're at the track tomorrow, I'll show you.

Yeah, I'll be there. Sounds like you have a dampening issue. You have a PM

Hello,
Anyone tried the tc6 smokem chassis ?
It seems to have more hole around the bulkhead.
Is it for hinge pin blocks like other touring cars by Tamiya, Yokomo and Hot Bodies ??

depends on where in the turn it's breaking loose. Sounds like coming out of turns?

A few areas to start: double-check droop, soften the rear springs a little bit, increase rear diff weight

I heard from a friend in the industry that they are working on it for several months, but never actually saw anything...
I would be in a market for one even though anything we have seen from other companies made no difference in performing better on track regarding laptimes only. AE made a huge step from TC5 to TC6. The car drives much better and is easier to handle on the limit. I am not sure if it makes sense to offer another normal chassis like everyone else (short shocks, floating servo mount, etc.). What I would like to see is a manufacturer focussing his efforts on the suspension and not on chassis flex characteristics as there is much more time gain potential hidden there...

So I am hoping for a revolution while expecting the boring standard.
