I had the C-hub issue, too and solved it with the Zeppin aluminium C-hub. Since then I can trust my suspension to survive unwanted accidents. I was a little sceptic at first, because the material looks thin in some areas, but until now I didn't have any bending problem. I am not sure when I put them in the car, but they hold up well for 12-18 months now. My front suspension is "bulletproof" now in every race/training situation (I am not talking about sending the car full throttle into a concrete wall). So the Zeppin C-hub fits perfectly in the front construction.

A second way is to use the TC5 C-hub which is tougher and more slopless than the 6.1 version


By the way: I had a great time with my TC6.1WC today. I really love my actual setup. The car is very agile and very easy to control, making it stressless to drive on the very limit over a long period of time. My last setup change was 7000cst oil in the rear gear diff (spool in front, medium grip carpet).

What oil thickness do you guys use?

I had a much different experience with Zeppin C-hubs. After just a couple races, I managed to bend one of the hubs. It wasn't a huge crash either. Nothing else was damaged. It was only out by a little, but enough that my caster angle was changed. And since I couldn't accurately bend them back, I took them both off and went back to the original hubs.

Question:

Can you visually tell the difference between TC6 shocks vs TC6.1 or is it all internals?

If its all internal parts what parts will I need to make them 6.1 shocks?

Thx

I don't think there were any change between the tc6 and the tc6.1. The tc5 were different then the tc6

Jeff is right All TC6/TC6.1/TC6.1WC (maybe even TC6.2) shocks are the same.
