They are Ti screws from Gravity RC. Seem to be fine. Not sure how much lighter they are. With a LW Speed6 I'm at 1380g. Orca seems decent, always trying different motors. Has better bottom end punch than my previous D3.5, and doesn't seem to fade at higher temps.

I've always kinda liked the box stock setup for VTA, but I did add a gear diff in front.

Seems to me that Darkside posted his VTA setup one time, or if you PM him he will send it to you.

I'm pretty sure I've found some other VTA setups posted in this thread but it would require some searching around.

12.5 rotor. Aluminum screws is something up to the individual. I've had them , never had issues. Some guys I know have had nothing but issues with aluminum. Probably wise to run Ti or Steel through high stress areas to prevent busting off screws, especially if the car sees a lot of impacts.

This is Myron Kinnard's TC6 setup for VTA. It should get you pretty close.

Not sure that I aggree, if you look at each end, it has a diffrent number. I don't have a picture of the one i have but if you look at the once on amain, you can see the #3 on one and #14 on another. I also know that there are other numbers because I separated the once I have by the number and had about 5 diffrent groups.

could be a cavity number. most injection molded parts have more than one part in the mold. something that small is probably around a 24-32 cavity mold.

Thats exactly right. Theres a total number that they come in and they are just marked out of which one they are. Nothing special.

Just wanted to say thanks to A. Brumblay, R. Hohwart, Evo Chick and some of the others who had mentioned on how to get rid of the slop/(wear and tear) from a full season of racing. I got my slop out of my tc 6.1wc and the car has come back to life for me

Here's a video of my tc 6.1wc being a very competitive car to a lot of other great manufacturers out in the field. For being a very reasonable priced car....it can win baby

This was our toys for tots final major race of our season at Norcal Hobbies.
My car is in tq position. Pink car.

I know I did some mistakes, but it wasnt the cars fault. I still have much work to do.
Thanks Jon Johnson for the video, and all the great guys at Norcal Hobbies.

Shim at the arms to get the desired track width but you can use wheel shims to test and fine tune. In the front, use the offset blocks and add up to 1.5mm if needed. In the rear, use the offset blocks for the back mount and the standard block for the forward mount. You can add up to 1mm here as well.
When at all possible, shim the arms and use the wheel spacers only for a quick adjustment at a race event. IMO
