No problem it was good seeing you again. It is nice to see more people running the tc6 in the area ! glad you like the car and if there is anything I can help with send me a message on here.

Just got back into it after a 10 year sabbatical , if you can call ten years that!
TC 6 , Modified with rubber tires.
Problem. not enough steering in general. Guess it's a good place to be, now looking for steering instead of rear end.
I have turned up the Dual Rate and lowered the steering exponential to get a 'feel' of handling but want to find it mechanically so it is kinder on front tyres. Car feels a bit too safe with this much 'push'. Also sledges a little bit under braking so can never get into a corner late as have braking set reasonably low to focus on corner speed.
Looking for fine tuning options.
Solutions i am thinking :
1/less rear toe (from 3.5 to 3) ?
2/Shorten front and rear camber links to : Front 5 / Rear 4A ?
3/Shorten front wheel base ( from 2 to 1 ) ?
Track is open fast flow with some technical sections : nhrccc . org . nz
Awesome thread BTW. Any comments appreciated.

bodyshell : Titan - Mazdaspeed 6
Tekin redline 6.5T/ tekin rs pro - using boost to increase mid range punch and turbo top-end for massive straight. Went 6.5T to be able to put power down smoothly as track is low/mid grip. outdoor asphalt.
silver springs all corners / 50 wt oil /piston 2/ black sway bar front and back
0 B mounts all round. longish wheelbase for sweepers and general track. Widened track by front 1 and 1. rear is 1 and 3.5 + 1 degree toe block. giving overall 3.5 toe in rear. Droop TC measurement 5 front , 4 back. camber 1.75 all round
played with set up for a while and the above ( except toe in ) is pretty much where I have ended up with a stable/consistent/ lots of traction/easy to drive car so think I want to concentrate on small fine tuning changes.
Am consistent enough ( .3 secs ) to be able to feel the difference in fine tuning.
Was thinking about trying out ISF bodyshell as apparently it has more front downforce.....
Really should try to minimize rear toe first i think.
Lord , please give me more entry and exit steering.
Thanks to all replies, much appreciated.
Off to track to test!
the one thing I would do is definitely use less reat to ! Usualy on asphlat I run 2mm so it is close to 2.3 degree. Also, you can raise your front shock up 1 or 2 holes that would be good for entry steering. The other thing is I would try to play with Ackerman. I would go with the 7block and have it all the way forward and outside on the steering block.
Hope this helps , if you have anymore questions, please feel free to ask.

I'm about to make the switch to KO, and was wondering what servos you use in TC and 1/12?
was nice seeing you as well ! good to hear about KO. I have been running the new RSX servos (speed) for Touring and I have been running the 951-ICS for 1/12 ! I have ran my 1/12 servo for about 2 years now with no issues.
