Here is an easy and light way to mount the fan using an extra servo mount and 2 screws on the TC6.X chassis.

Now I know what to do with that extra servo mount that's left after installing your floating mount

That's too funny. I have been running a fan for the last year exactly the same way.

Well, I prefer the Reflex fan mount... Cuz it's AWESOME!
Now stop talking about that thing I mentioned back there, when I said it... Because this is the RDS thread and I don't want to make Cristian mad at me and loose my 50% discount rate...lol
Just kidding... 40% is fine.

Ouch... My tummy hurts now.
Someday I should start my own thread. Maybe I'll call it "ask YoDog". Then I can really misinform folks instead of hijacking the threads of legit entrepreneurs like Cristian.
Sorry buddy... I guess it's time for me to get off the proverbial pot and do something with my life.

Default New Bumpers!!!






RSD100 RSD XRAY T4 Hard Wide Front Bumper





RSD101 RSD AE TC6/TC6.1 Hard Wide Front Bumper




RSD053 RSD Hard Blank Front Bumper

With these bumpers, we took a little bit different approach. We tried to make them as light as possible while still being stronger and more durable than their counterparts. Weight over the front axle is hardly ever your friend, and we would rather have the racer add the weight rather than the bumper. We are using a material that we found gave us the best strength vs. durability and weight compromise. We are very happy with the results.

CT, I just installed the aluminum outdrives for the TC6.1. When I go to insert the dogbone end, it doesn't fit right. It seems as though the inside diameter of the outdrive is too small, and you have to press the axle in. Am I doing something wrong?

Where are your CVA bone blades? Weren't they on the old driveshafts?

Just ran the progressive asphalt springs yesterday on a VBC with lowered shock towers and shorty shocks. I was a little worried about the springs but let me tell you they are awesome!! A good investment.

Run a 1/2 mm spacer between the out drive and spool. I think they pinch alil bit when tightened. Loosen it up and see if its free.
