ahh so pry the bottom bearing holder off and then rotate and re-insert?? will give it a shot tomorrow..thanks for the info

You could also download the TC6.1 manual. http://www.teamassociated.com/manuals/TC6.1/

It shows how to adjust the tension of the belts in detail. I find myself looking at it everytime I need to adjust it. I can never remember what way does what. While you are at it make sure the "teeth" are clean on the diffs. Mine get carpet and sauce gunk caked in them from time to time and round out the slots making the belt easier to slip. You may want to invest in new belts if yours are worn. At least have a spare set.

Ya I usually take out the top bearing cap screws and lift off the bearing caps without removing the camber links. Then I pop out the diffs, take the belts off, clean the teeth, then adjust the cam holders one or two teeth at a time looser or tighter depending on what I need. Make sure the left mirrors the right and reinstall.

Hopefully I get to try the TC6.1 this weekend with the servo saver loctied the crap out of and settled for 2 weeks now.

I did receive my Yodog's Floating Servo Mount kit, however haven't begun to plan or settle into the required installation, yet.

I thought I'd mention that the servo mount requires 1 of each of these AE parts to complete the install.

1 AE# 3983 ball stud to replace the button head screw on the Ackerman adjuster plate.
1 AE# 7499 ball cup to lengthen the servo link.

A servo saver is optional as this method bypasses the stock saver.

You did mention it already Rick, thanks! This time however you included part numbers, so that's even better I meant I just have not accessed or scoped it out to the car.

Nice picture by the way!

Someone else asked about the additional parts which led me to look up the P/N's.
Hopefully others see this post and the question will be answered already.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to this conversion. I've ordered up the parts required as well as an X Ray servo saver.

What do the numbers represent on the shaft of the turnbuckle eyelet that goes on the shock shaft?

They are just mold cavity numbers.

Today I finished my 6.1 conversion. I optimized the shock length, put on the old yellow and purple AE foam springs and finished the Protoform 905 body. It was again a lot of fun to work with the 6.1 chassis. With little effort and only minor problems it is adaptable to a lot of ideas.

I love the look of this beast

What? That body can fit on a 1/10 TC chassis? I take it will fit a WGT chassis then? I love the look of it!!
