I have posted this question also in Mp and Here.
Hi keven, no problem.
For the shocks I do the same thing but I use the Tamiya blu o-ring and I am satisfied for the work with 450 MuchMore oil. Now I am testing Tamiya shocks to see the difference between the original TC6.For gear diff. some tips? Building, oil, grease and so on.
For your set-up I am not able to see this in the IIC website, can help me?
Now solved in "Team Associated TC6 Thread"

[QUOTE=Keven H;11359649]Hi Gom,

You will need to cut the sharp edge but very very little and is easier done with a exacto knife. You will also need the hex like with the RSD.

got it. thanks Keven.

I was very surprised at how much cooler and faster the ESC was from what I had before. But I never ran into much issue with runtime with the 6500 battery before tho, I cam close a few times but it didnt seem much of a problem. I dont think .0 are more efficient. I think it has a lot to do with ESC settings, sometimes when they are wrong, it can be slower when the timing is too much and it doesnt reach it and therefore it will also drain more batteries so also something to take into concideration. But I think both motors are great and you can find what you like with either one of them with some testing, gearing and ESC.

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you, I just bought Reedy 4.5 and 5.0

Hi, When I build my gear diff I just put everything together like the instruction and once in a while probably every 3 race meeting, I will change the orings and gear to make sure the diff is always in good shape because the oring tend to swell and makes the diff feel thicker. As for the setups, they are posted on www.rc10.com under setup.

if you are talking about front and rear, going to the B hole front and rear will usualy make the car a little agressive. the car will feel like it rolls more and I have found the car to be more stable on high grip condition in the C hole. The main difference for me was in the sweeper with the C holes the car did not want to dump over and felt like it carried more corner speed.

This will be just a guess since I have never run 17.5 1/12 but if I was to run the class I would start with the IIC mod setup and probably silver side spring and Black and yellow for tires and that should be a good starting point ! hope this helps.

The Howart (Hebert's) setup from world's is dialed.... your rollout, depending on motor will be between 95-105... I am at 104mm with a reedy sonic.... you're going to love it!

Everything else should be going together well and you should be good to go.

For 1/12, if you do run mod, I would not go any bigger than 42.5-43mm in the rear to start with and 40.5 front to get about 5 runs on them. problem is when running modified now the cars are so fast that tire wear can be an issue. I run mine down to 38.8mm but thats as low as I will go for front and 40.8 for rear.

Good to hear you will be at timezone GP. Looking forward to meet new people.
thanks Keven that helps! on your setup sheets for tire size f39.5/r41.5, would that be your last run?

The Futaba 9650 is the most popular.. I am running the Savox 1350 with no issues.....

Hi Keven,

Hope all is well, I was wondering if you have a starting setup for the 5.2 On asphalt? Also, are you going to TITC again?

Thanks,

Antoni

Hi Keven, how do you determine which body you'll be running when going to a new track... LTCR or Mazda?

Kevin,
I was wondering how you go about setting your droop? Also, what is the preferred method when saucing tires for carpet racing?

Thanks
